Hi,

 

Does anybody know why my website ruzzleonline[dot].nl looks perfect in IE8, and my new website oudisnieuw.net.websrv.makeweb[dot]nl does not?

 

Kind regards,

 

Willem

Hi Willem,

 

You're using custom code, therefore your issue is most likely related to that.

Hi Danny,

 

I use for oudisnieuw.net.websrv.makeweb[dot]nl a child theme, do you mean that with custom code.

Because the only thing I did in the child theme, is making the slider also possible in the header.

 

With CSS I positioned the logo at left, the slider next to it and the menu under those two. But is this CSS a problem for IE8? 

header#header div.outline { 
width: 1000px;
margin: 0 auto;
}

section#branding.container { 
width:25%;
float: left;
}

section#quickslider.container {
width:75%;
float: left;
}

section#nav {
clear: both; 
}

Kind regards,

 

Willem

We are unable to provide support for user created custom code. I am also unable to test IE8, so I am not able to diagnose your site. However, if your site is not displaying correctly in IE8, then it's most certainly related to your custom CSS.

 

I recommend you make fine adjustments to your code and keep viewing the changes in IE8, until your site looks as it does in other browsers.

Ok, I will search the problem in the CSS. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

 

One thing I learned is that IE8 requires a !DOCTYPE for the position part.

So I'm going to start with finding out what a doctype it.

 

Kind regards,

 

Willem
