How to get my horizontal Navbar to display properly in Internet Explorer?
It looks great in every other browser but will not display properly in IE. If anyone can help me I can send you the code if need be, but is there a known fix to this problem?
IE flips my navigation vertical and none of the other formatting displays correctly (gradients etc)
Hey Christin. What version of internet explorer do you have? If you have IE 7 or 8, they do not process CSS the same as IE 9 or Chrome or Firefox. You may need a separate stylesheet for IE 7 and 8. Can you reply with your code? It may be your CSS and now your HTML.
It doesn't give me enough room to paste the code or I sure would! It's all of IE that is doing it - did I mention I hate IE? lol
Do you know what version of IE? It should not be a problem with IE 9, but the lower versions. Which one do you have? Also, can you paste the URL here?
Do you think I should write a hub on this? LOL
I am writing this hub in response to the Hub Pages member ChristinS who had a question that she could not get a beautiful website that looks great in Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, but the navigation fails to display well in Internet Explorer. I... read more
Thank you for taking time to write a hub in answer to my question I promise to go check it out this weekend! Much appreciated
You're welcome, Christin, glad you like my hub as well about Internet Explorer.
There are so many hacks, work arounds and shims need to make websites work properly in IE that it is almost impossible to keep up with them all. So why bother trying when there is HTML5 Boilerplate? http://www.initializr.com/ is a nice front end for picking and choosing which components you need. I prefer the 'Bootstrap' config. Bootstrap code comes from Twitter by the way. http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/
Forgot about trying to figure out why this or that doesn't work on IE. I'd bet money this code will solve all your headaches or your money back, well it is free so no money back guarantee.
Hi Christin I have problems with IE acting different that the others as well.
I'm no expert or even an advanced amateur but in my site borsia.com which is nothing more than a few stacked tables IE can't seem to get the top table right while all the others do it flawlessly.
Please if you are going to ask us a question about web design start by giving us the URL so that we can see the problem. We can also view the code, assuming we know how to read it.
In the case of my simple site I have others built with this same technique that work fine in IE as well as all others.
If you go to The W3C Markup Validation Service (validator.w3.org) it will give you a report that shows any errors with line / column so you can go through and fix things.
It is a site I am building so I can't share the URL. I do use w3c thanks for commenting.
Hey Borsia, I saw your site in IE & Chrome & see what you mean.
1) Your TD tags are all 24 pixels. Give the last TD a smaller width.
2) Convert your table HTML to DIVs. Improve your CSS.
3) My hub above offers for a solution.
I don't have an answer, but may I suggest using Chrome?
Hey, Insightful Tiger , She is not talking about herself using IE, but whoever views her website. Websites should look good on all browsers. One of the annoying challenges of beinging a web designer. LOL
first learn css
or give the url here, may i could help you in a better way.

Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?

I have used all of these and found firefox good, but not as chrome, IE is losing its position. One problem I faced with chrome is, it crashes after sometime...Which one is best ?

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.
