[Closed]: IE8 Theme Compatibility.
« on: March 23, 2009, 10:08:31 pm »

Basic testing has shown the following theme do not display as their authors intended in the newly released IE8.

Fiapple
Fiappleblue
Fiapplepink
Helius
Hestia
Powerbookg4
Reflection
Rin
Smf
Supernova
Unreal

Hopefully, the authors of these themes (or their users) will in time make corrections but in the short term a temporary fix can be applied simply by putting the following code in the <head> of your template.html file

Code: [Select]
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />
This will force the users browser into compatibility mode if they are using IE8.

I have not thoroughly tested every template but have made quick tests on all the templates in the demo and the rest seem to display well.

Phill,

thanks for the report.

I went through the themes you mentioned and added the meta tag to the <head>-section. I then created new packages for the themes and updated the demo as well. This being said: the downloads section now contains the updated packages.

The fiapple themes looks strange in other browsers than IE: they all stretch beyond the screen, so a horizontal scrollbar shows, even though my browser window runs at a large resolution. If someone wants to look into this, I'm all ears.

Once again, thanks for checking with IE8.

Cheers

Joachim

It is the class .topnav (style.css line 611) that is causing the problem. There is a line that says
Code: [Select]
white-space: nowrap; causing descriptions to stay on one line. Remove that and all is fine.

I'll try and upload corrected style.css files for each variation here in the morning (unless it is easier for you to edit it directly on the server). I have pulled a muscle in my back and am struggling to sit at the desk.

I am also not sure if the designer intended

 style.css (line 194)
Code: [Select]
.alblink a {
color:#000000;
text-decoration:overline;
}

To be

style.css (line 194)
Code: [Select]
.alblink a {
color:#000000;
text-decoration:underline;
}

As that overline looks weird IMO but maybe that was how the designer intended???

That's indeed quite easy. I'll applay that fix to those themes.

unless it is easier for you to edit it directly on the server
I don't edit on the server - I have to download, unzip, edit, test, zip, upload, remove old entry from database, add new file to database, edit the download link in announcement thread. Our download section is located on sourceforge.net, where we're only guests and don't have the powers to change the way it works.

I have pulled a muscle in my back and am struggling to sit at the desk.
Then don't torture yourself by sitting at the desk - take it easy in the position that works best for you (bed, couch etc.).

I am also not sure if the designer intended

 style.css (line 194)
Code: [Select]
.alblink a {
color:#000000;
text-decoration:overline;
}

Code: [Select]
.alblink a {
color:#000000;
text-decoration:underline;
}

Personally, I'm not fond of overline hover effects for links, but the theme contributions from DaMysterious at that time contained that feature very often, so I guess it was intended and should be left as is.

Thanks reporting issues with my themes. Meanwhile I have taken time to review ALL my styles and did recode/update on essential parts such as "white-space: nowrap;" including latest reports I found here related to my themes etc. Demo of actual changes, Download of the changed styles.

I have to mention there are still problems with style Royal Egypt, Nature Beauty if viewed on resolutions higher than 1024x768. For prosilver related and other styles custom header and footer positions where moved out of the inner border if applicable. Furthermore I did strive to position the styles in centre of the screen where possible.

Hello,

I have a problem with the <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />, maybe some of you can help !

I have a coppermine gallery designed for IE7, so when I use IE8, it's quite a mess.
Si I added the <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" /> in my template and in theme.inc.php

But it doesn't change anything, I'm wondering why, if this code works or not, of if I should put it somewhere else.

Can someone help me ? ???
Thanks a lot !

1) post a link to your gallery  -  support forum rule

2) don't edit themes.inc.php

1. I didn't see I should have posted the link, sorry about that, here it is : http://www.metal-ways.com/gallery

2. I tried to edit theme.inc.php because editing template.html wasn't working.

Please start a thread of your own with this problem but first update your gallery.

You are running Coppermine version: 1.4.18 while the current release is version 1.4.25. You are at risk of being hacked.
