Frustration... I got my simple little site where I want it - publish a test to Business Catalyst - it all looks great ... ON A MAC.
Tried to get support to call me back - it's about 40 minutes...still waiting
I just want to Know if this is a qwerk of the Biz catalyst - or when my client posts it for real.
In which case I'll have to go somewhere else for Nav buttons!
Please help with wisdom if you can.
It would be helpful to have the URL of the page in question, or a screenshot of what's being seen in IE8.
Muse does not support IE6. (By most measures IE6 usage is below 1% of site visitors for most sites and IE7 usage is below 2%.)
Muse does support IE7 and IE8, but both have bugs that are very difficult to workaround that relate to transparent (PNG) images and applied transparency, transparency effects or animated transparency (fade in/out). (Note that for some effects applied in Muse, such as rounded corners, bevel, shadow or glow, Muse 1.x may generate a transparent PNG at output time in order to achieve that effect, so while you haven't explicitly imported a transparent PNG one may still be necessary to achieve your design on the web.)
Without seeing the problem web page, I'm stabbing in the dark a bit, but the first things I'd look for would be minor changes that might be made to the design to reduce the use of transparency and/or transparent images (esp. overlapping semi-transparent objects or non-100% opacity on anything with a fade in/out effect).
Another thing I'd try is publishing to a new trial site using Muse 2.0 Beta 2. We've made significant changes to how shadow and glow effects are exported that primarily improve page load performance on newer browsers, but in the process there were changes which may have improved the overlapping transparent PNGs and transparency effects bug workarounds for IE7 and IE8. (If you want to give Muse 2.0 Beta 2 a try, you can update by joining the Muse Beta program via the "Help Improve Adobe Muse" menu item in the "Help" menu. You can then revert back to Muse 1.1 by unchecking the checkbox in the same dialog. Note that you'll want to be sure to save your .muse file from Muse 2.0 Beta 2 to a new file name and not overwrite your Muse 1.x file, so you have your original 1.1 .muse file should you need to revert to Muse 1.1. The release notes for Muse 2.0 are here.)
Could you send me the .muse file at firstname.lastname@example.org along with a link to this thread? It may speed up the debugging and my ability to find a workaround or fix for you. If the file is larger than 20Mb, you can send it using a service like Adobe SendNow, SendThisFile or WeTransfer. Thanks.
From the looks of this, it is an issue around an opactiy value getting incorrectly set by Muse. This will be fixed in upcoming releases of Muse, but in the meantime, you can set a white background on your menu items and it should get rid of the problem.
Hope that help,
