[SOLVED] IE 8 doesn't like my site: PHP problems?
 
Hi,

My site,
http://depts.washington.edu/ophthweb/wordpress/
has some display issues in IE 8.

I am using the Page Menu bar on the top of the site, and all text does not display.

Also I am using a text widget with PHP code to display pages in the left column. In both cases, the text does not display, unless I tab to the menu items. Then they display.

I have inserted a bit of html in header.php to add a Skip Nav link at the top of the page. I have a widget in the html inserts at the top of the body section. I have some Google Analytics java script in appropriate places.

Any suggestion as to where to look?

Oi, and I don't have IE 8 installed yet. That means I have to make another VM with that app on it for testing purposes. I was hoping to delay that until Fall. Guess I have to get on it.

Atahualpa tells IE8 to emulate IE7 behavior with this official Microsoft tag in the header section:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

You can observe the issues on your site with IE7 as well, and should not need to install IE8

The first <LI> is not enclosed in a <UL> and I am not sure if you even wanted to put a <LI> list item there.
You also have class="?" which is probably also throwing off IE

Red = missing or wrong

<ul><li class="skip"><a href="#content">Skip to Main Content</a></li></ul>
<ul class="efontsize">Text size:
<li class="efontbig">
<a href="?incfont=yes" onclick="window.location.replace(this.href); return false" title="increase text size"><span>+</span></a></li>
<li class="efontsmall">
<a href="?decfont=yes" onclick="window.location.replace(this.href); return false" title="decrease text size"><span>-</span></a></li>
<li class="efontreset">
<a href="?resetfont=yes" onclick="window.location.replace(this.href); return false" title="reset text size"><span class="?">Reset</span></a></li>
</ul>

Well, Thanks Flynn for the second set of eyes. Clearly, I haven't been a good tester, as I have tested my site in IE 7, but obviously not after I made every change. Thanks for catching the errors for me. Now I'll sheepishly go back to by dev corner, and not leave until I've tested my work...

:)

Just to close this out, I just wrapped the <a href> link in a <div> , no <li>, no <p>, and that fixed the problem.
