It's raining like crazy here so thought I would tinker with this IE problem to see if I could find a solution since I'm using a modified version of this. Since my html experience isn't as high as the dev folks, I'll outline what I found and hope for an answer. Attached is a screenshot of the filmstrip in IE. The template.html and style.css for this cpg 1.4.4 version of the Blackbirch theme did not validate correctly so I've fixed everything except one problem which is causing the issue in IE in the first place.
The issue causing the before
problem was the background pic (handu.jpg) used in the intermediate photo table is messing with the filmstrip table. So, I commented it out in the style.css if anyone wants to play with it.
Now here is the strange part, following the instructions in the upgade doc (http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/theme/index.html
), everything was cool except I kept getting the broke
issue in IE. Come to find out it's the DOCTYPE statement that's causing all the problem. Changing this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
is causing the problem and if I leave it as 4.01 Transitional, all is well. Here is a post that mentions this issue as well http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php?topic=24454.0
so I'll leave here as it is and go have a pint since it's not going to stop raining.
PS. The attached theme is working well now except that the template.html has the older doctype statement. You can see the new version here on my test gallery http://www.bullseyephotos.com/gallery/displayimage.php?album=random&cat=0&pos=-17&theme=blackbirch
