Newsfader / Internet Explorer
« on: July 02, 2011, 10:20 »
We are aware of an issue with the index page Newsfader, which does not display correctly in Internet Explorer, and are currently working on a fix for this.

It makes the page 'jump' when it adjusts the area to fit the height of the text, in Firefox 5 too.  Just specify a constant height for the field and you're laughing.

I noticed that what Rodders said in FF too,thought it was just a page refresh until I watched for what it actually was.Dont remember it doing that in the old board.

I've fixed the jumping by adding a set height, but does anyone (Rod?) know how to get the text vertically central if there's only one line?  This is the code, and I'm also interested in the bit where it says about the IE JS bug - what does it mean, "shouldn't be shorthand style"?  Could that be the cause of our issue?

#smfFadeScroller
{
   text-align: center;
   padding: 0 2em;
   height: 40px;
   overflow: auto;
   margin: 1em 0;
   color: #575757; /* shouldn't be shorthand style due to a JS bug in IE! */
}

just a total guess  could it be the overflow:auto


if its only one line doesnt need to overflow    :dunno: :dunno:

sorry


have you tried to see what happens with more text in so it has to force into 3 or more lines

Three lines would produce a scroll bar, Baz.

I dunno, but keep an eye on this thread.  http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=440756.0 thread.

Regarding the 'shorthand' comment, it's a bit ambiguous, but the way I would interpret that is: use a value instead of the color name.

I thought the 'Si' bit sounded familiar.   ;)

I'm guessing you did - as I don't see that behaviour here.

No.  If you use compatibility mode in IE, it works on the Default theme, but not on ours.
