Article 1.0 Display Issue

Can someone look at a section of my website and tell me why the categories are not displaying correctly in IE but work in FF.
The url is http://www.4x4n.com/modules/articles/

Thanks.

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

Earlier this came up and I think you may find the answer James gave as being relevant to your problem.

I would just tell you but you need to compare the complaint for yourself to see if it is relevant since I am very new to this much of what I say is really guesswork.

If this is not the answer to your problem someone will help us along shortly.

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

Have you tried another theme, it looks like it may be the theme rather than the article module.

Now I am not saying trash all the hard work you have done, though it may give you an idea of why it's happening, if you compare maybe the CSS files of a theme that works well and the theme you have.

Anyway I am no expert either, just a thought to help you get to the bottom of it
Cheers and good luck :o)

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

Not sure if this will help you but it's worth a try. **Make sure things are backed up first!** I don't think this will do any harm either way but better to be prepared.

With one of the themes I tried I had a similar problem with IE. You can try downloading THIS (IE7_0_9.zip) and put that folder inside the folder of theme you are using (make sure to rename it from IE7_0_9 to ie7) & see if it helps.

If you look at the 'Previous Topic, Next Topic' etc buttons (lower left) in the two screenshots it made a difference. Wasn't perfect though.

IE Before

IE After


Hope this will help you.

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

JamesSAEP,
do you modify original Article templates?

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

Thank you all for your suggestions.

I have tried using the default theme and others, but all display the same.

No, I haven't hacked the templates, and just in case I did and didn't remember :) I replaced them w/ the originals.

I'm going to try a few other steps and I'll post back the results.

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

In Articles preferences have you tried the different options, for Theme set >>> you can have none or the theme that you are using should be an option.

Also have you tried the options in the Template section >>> default, blog, list, view.

If so does anything change?

Cheers ;o)

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

Well, after trying all the suggestions, I looked at my testing server and it displayed correctly. So, I uploaded a new database backup to the test and the problem happened. After comparing the two, it turned out that the Hail Baja 2007 - Part 1" article was marked to be in both the "Events" and "4x4n Site" categories.

Not sure why this would break the layout, but it did.

Re: Article 1.0 Display Issue

Thanks, I just wish I could figure out why having the article in two parent categories breaks the layout. If I ever figure it out, I'll post back to this thread for reference.
