Registration Page displays oddly in IE 8

10 years 6 months ago #118465 by bluepete
Hello,

My registration page is displaying oddly in IE 8 vs. FF. I'm using the latest version, I believe, of mycommunity on CB 1.2.1, Joomla 1.5.14.

Note how the form elements in IE 8 are forced far to the right. In FF and Safari, these are aligned perfectly.

I'd welcome any suggestions, or requests for more information.

Thank you.

Hello,

I'm seemed to have stumbled on the solution to the problem of form elements in IE 8 wrapping in a registration page crowded with textboxes and privacy select drop-downs. Place this line in your template.css file in the .fieldCell section that controls the td tag:

white-space:nowrap;

WARNING! This means that this attribute will be in all fieldCell table cells. If you have long text descriptions in delimiters, they will stop wrapping. The solution is <br /> at various places.

Also, DEFINEd constants won't wrap either. Just put <br /> in appropriate places in default_language.php definitions. You may have to experiment a bit depending on your template.

This is just my solution. I haven't tested in in IE 6 or 7, though it seems to work fine in Safari and FF 3.5.4. I would WELCOME other ideas.
