    Hi

    I’s it possible to use some sort of poly filler with choices like Dean Edwards

    <!–[if lt IE 7]>

    <script src=”http://ie7-js.googlecode.com/svn/version/2.0(beta3)/IE7.js”

    type=”text/javascript”>

    </script>

    <![endif]–>

    and if so where would i put it or implement it in the header?

    The Teachers who are still using xp and ie 6 +7 – I know you don’t support it, with Choices but I have to find a solution as the main navs dropdowns have gone and the link images are running vertical behind the nav bar. and the site login seems to have vanished?

    apart from this it all seems ok

    regards

    Hi,

    I am not sure if this is going to work.

    I think this is because of the javascripts included in the theme. Please edit header.php then find this code

    /* add javascript */

    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-default' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-prettyPhoto' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-html5-video' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'aviapoly-slider' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-social' );

    Replace it with:

    /* add javascript */

    if(preg_match('/(?i)msie [1-7]/',$_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']))
    {

    }
    else
    {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-default' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-prettyPhoto' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-html5-video' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'aviapoly-slider' );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'avia-social' );
    }

    All javascripts will be disabled if you open the site on IE 7 or lower.

    Hi Ismael

    Thanks for this it didn’t seem to work but I have convinced the teachers that there is no point in supporting these two browsers.

    However one has pointed out to me that the menu is not working in IE9 on windows 7 see screenshot

    http://www.aclgroup.co.uk/windows7_ie9.jpg

    ringed in red – the menu is not dropping down or is perhaps behind the slide?

    It seems to work on everything but this

    Can you help?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Please add this on your custom.css

    #top .slideshow {
    position: relative;
    z-index: -1;
    }

    Regards,

    Ismael

    Hi Ismael

    Thanks for this but it’s still not showing – I’ve also tried

    #top #slideshow_big

    {

    border-bottom-width: 0px;

    z-index: -1;

    }

    #main {

    z-index: -1;

    }

    which I gleaned from the forum but still no joy – is there anything else I can try? unfortunately most of the school are still on windows seven, so it’s kind of more important (for them) than any other OS – It’s great on a Mac though!! and it seems fine in chrome on PC (even xp!).

    Best regards

    Hi Steve,

    I’m not getting the same error on a windows 7+IE9 machine at this point. Not sure if it was just a local cache issue with your css changes not updating but the menu appears in front correctly on my end.

    Hi Devin

    You’ll probably be looking at the version I managed to (half) resolve this weekend using a plethora of hacks and fixes gleaned from googling.

    The result is that the drop down sub menu now sits too close to the menu. If I move it down by just 1 pixel it creates a gap that IE9 picks up and so the sub menu vanishes. (only in IE9).

    Ideally it should be flush with the bottom of main menu bar (or flush with the top of the breadcrumbs background) instead of overlaying it.

    So I currently have a situation where, in order for it to function in windows 7 IE9 – I have to mess up the look and design for all the other modern browsers! It’s not ideal.

    Should I be looking at having a seperate style sheet for ie9?

    Best regards

    If there are specific issues in IE at this point it would be from customizations to the theme. A IE specific stylesheet isn’t a bad idea as a quick workaround.

    Hi Devin

    Yes I can see that the theme works in ie 9 if I get rid of custom.css but unfortunately I can’t do that.

    I’m trying all sorts of scripts like this in header.php

    <!–[if IE]>

    <link type=”text/css” rel=”stylesheet” media=”screen” href=”http://www.larkswoodprimary.co.uk/www/lark/wp-content/themes/choices/css/ieonly.css” />

    <![endif]–>

    but it still seems to take the styles from custom? and not linking to “ieonly.css”

    I’ve put it back how it was so the drop down menu no longer functions in windows seven ie 9 – they disappear once the mouse is off the main menu. I think it’s caused by a gap between the main menu and the drop down. I can get rid of it by changing line 135 (in custom.css) to top: 12px;

    But this is not ideal as it makes the drop downs almost touch the text on the main menu.

    Could you tell me what I need to do to get that if IE script working?

    Best regards

    Your best source is http://css-tricks.com/how-to-create-an-ie-only-stylesheet/ . Just make sure your styles will properly take priority over your custom css.

    You could even force it with !important if you don’t want to go through the hoops of getting the proper cascading styles down but this is getting deep into the area of what we aren’t able to support.

    Once things get customized to a point where the basic theme support and functionality isn’t working its where a freelance developer needs to take over to make sure its done correctly and to give you the proper level of support you need.
