Firefox and IE show different on home page

    I don’t ever use IE. But I got a note from a user and it seems that my site has some strange characteristics about it?? Looks fine using FF but in IE the bp default theme left column (1st column in the admin) is lined up under the middle and right column (2nd and 3rd)?

    I’m not sure what to trouble shoot? http://www.erhom.com

    Anyone want to take a stab?

  • gsmith tells me via a message that he had this problem with IE8.

    8.0.6001.18702

    I want to say that’s the latest version? Could a plug in have somehow changed or corrupted the CSS? or?

    I’m baffled…and am beginning to be rather embarrassed of the look of the site! Yikes!

    Does it look the same on http://testbp.org/ ?

    Yes. Looks identical. I have an error somewhere on my site?? Is there a specific file that handles the index page? Maybe I should re-install bp? Ideas…??

    I saw my site on a kiosk with IE8 today. The home page looked as you described. I didn’t know if was a result of IE8 or the resolution of the monitor.

    I also saw that buddybar menus on the bp home page did not appear ‘in front’ of the upper left members, groups, blogs search box and picklist. I didn’t look at all my blog themes but I did notice that WordPress Default 1.6 Theme by Michael Heilemann breaks with BP. The sub menus under “My Blogs”, > Dashboard- New Post- etc, are all disconnected from the menu. They float over to the right. I’ll check it with testbp.org. Is any one else seeing this IE8 buddybar menu behavior on the bp home and default blog theme?

    wpmu 2.8.4, bp 1.1.1

    Mark, what’s your site address. Let me take a peek on my end?

    Problem solved:

    Missing closing tag on my end!

    (right in front of my eyes)

    So I guess you were using a *modified* bp default :) Too bad… I do love tracking down IE rendering bugs (no… really… I do… it’s a problem).

    Sounds like you’ve just volunteered to track down any obscure IE bugs!

    Sure :) Bring ‘em on.

    I tested my site with ie7 and ie8. I could not recreate the issue of the home page left column appearing below the middle and right column on my site (but I did observe this behavior with ie7 on buddypress.org). No other issue mentioned above was observed on my site (except for the one noted below). As I mentioned, I did see this behavior on a public computer/kiosk using IE (given my comments below, it seems more likely that it was ie7).

    You can see (or at least I can) a similar issue regarding the left column loading below the right column when using IE7 at http://buddypress.org (this site). Visit the ‘About’ and ‘Demo’ links (not the actual demo site). There are only 2 columns but the left appears under the right column with ie7.

    The one issue I was able to recreate on my site was the floating submenu when using the WordPress Default 1.6 Blog Theme. No problem with ie8 but with ie7 the buddybar submenus under ‘My Account’ or ‘My Blogs’ float to the right. I logged into http://testbp.org and created a blog with the default theme and found the same behavior when using ie7.

    I don’t think my specific site offers any insight since the issues that can be recreated are evident on buddypress.org and testbp.org (when logged in and using the default blog theme). I find it curious that others aren’t reporting this behavior as it should be easy to replicate.
