View Full Version : IE6 displaying this crazily
29th September 06, 08:20 PM
If any of you have I.E.6, check this out: (link removed as OP requested)
Then compare it to, say, Firefox's interpretation. I'm wondering what's causing the site to go insane (aside from the obvious part of transparent PNGs not working.)
I'm commenting on the text aligns, the background dissapearing, etc. Quite crazy.

It looks as though your are using png images which at this point in time aren't supported in IE. I would look up a script to rectify this.
Many of your background images dont seem to show. Even the scripts to force IE to render portable Network Graphics don't work with images set in the background.
I am affraid at this point in time there isn't much you can do.

The background images will work fine if they aren't PNGs? I understand the funny outline around the images, but backgrounds sometimes don't appear at all?
If this is the case, it should be easy to fix :)

Alright, the page is now PNG free. Everything is GIF and JPG, image wise.
The page still looks incorrect, though. Any more ideas?

You have two full pages inside each other
section of source
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#301E0" link="#000000" vlink="#301E0">
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/default.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
<title><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="Title" -->myGame
<style type="text/css"> Usually caused by using includes incorrectly.

The .dwt file is the CSS design, which i've applied to each .tpl phpBB file.
After some experimenting, the design works fine on it's own; it's only when viewed as a template on the phpBB file that it messes up.
Can anyone suggest what my plan of action would be, to make this work? I'll continue playing with the file, to find a solution in the meantime.

Update: I've broken the design into the overall_header.tpl and overall_footer.tpl files, so that the actual forum bit remains 'designless'.
It's improved it a lot. There's some unexpected white bits popping up near the bottom of the page, though.
I'll keep fiddling, let me know if you think of anything.

The page (link removed as OP requested) (the only one I'm working on - don't look at the others.) has greatly improved. I've been chipping away at it, and the progress is noticable. The only problem lies with the white background of the centre bit. If anyone can highlight how that can be fixed, do shout up, it'd be good to get this page wrapped up :)

All problems fixed, links are invalid now.
Please remove this thread, or the links within the thread please. Thank you :)
