Hi all,

Still having some issues with my new Wordpress theme (first time converting!)

http://nageela.einfal.com/

It seems to pushing and breaking up the header sections a bit, creating quite a mess, you can see what I mean here. http://nageela.einfal.com/grr.jpg

I've tried a fixes as well as adjusting my css with a variety of 'techniques' I've found via Google, but to no availl.

Any ideas or direction would be greatly appreciated ~`

Thank you,
Jennifer

Taking out the "width" declarations from the CSS for #header and .bed fixed IE 6 this end.

I'd like to know why you commit your pages to IE 7 hell for the rest of eternity?

Sadly the "jquerypngfix" does not seem to work...

Cordially, David

Hi Webwiz,

Thanks ... I removed the width from both the .bed and #header and although it seems to up where it's supposed to be, it's only half the width it should be. It starts after the leaves div and stops before the image rotation div!

I'm not an IE user myself, the client is.

Is there a hack that forces someone to view a website NOT in compatibility view? Lol

Thank you for your time ...

Hmm. Yes. You are running into several problems due to older IE "hasLayout" problems[1]. Sometimes used to fix IE weakness, it generates its own set of bugs.

I'd spend more time on this, but I saved a copy on my hard drive to play with, and it takes up to a minute to load on IE 6. My standalone IE 7 does not work for some reason, but you force IE 8 to use IE 7 "compatibility mode" with this:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

To force IE 8 and future versions into standards mode I use this instead:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge">

Wow a minute to load? That's crazy isn't it ...

Having a look at the article you've posted now, hopefully I'll find something there.

Thank you ~`
