Sign Up Button & IE 7 on BP Default 1.1

    @enailor

    I am using the BP Default 1.1 and noticed something while checking using IE 7. Take a look at the home page of the test drive while NOT logged in (and in IE 7) and you will see the Sign Up button displays incorrectly. I do not yet know where everything is to find the bug myself. Not sure if this is an issue in other IE versions.

    Anyone else know where or how to fix this?

    It has to do with the .generic-button class, this much I have determined

    Can you upload a screenshot and a ticket to http://trac.buddypress.org/? I don’t run a Windows PC so I can’t use IE.

    Ticket gets this response:

    “Changed 7 days ago by apeatling

    * priority changed from major to minor

    No CSS support for display: inline-block in IE7, upgrade to IE8, or if someone wants to write a patch, by all means please do.”

    Pardon me, but what? This is not a solution, is it? … upgrade to IE 8? What about all the users out there that still use IE 7? Since we patch for IE 6 all day long, why is something this glaring is so easily dismissed?

    Personally, I use Firefox mainly, but always double check with the most widely used browser, which at last check was still IE 7. I did notice that the same button does work in other places within the theme, so why is it that the front page doesn’t work properly? Perhaps something can be changed in the structure? I ask here because I am not as familiar with the new themes to figure it out myself.

    Personally, I have had to hack this theme and replace the button with a text link. But I’d love to have this fixed.

    Thanks Jason!

    CSS hacks are dirty so don’t give me too much heat about that ;)

    Just wanted to see if the patch worked correctly? Any updates?
