Internet Explorer 10 Problem

May 6, 2013 4:51 PM

Tags: #ie10_conditional_comment

I understand that IE10 no longer reads conditional comments because they claim they've fixed all the bugs ...whatever.

 

I've been running a simple conditional comment on this site for IE with great success, until IE10 reared its ugly head.  Can someone advise me on how I can add space below my image carousel, for IE10, without increasing it for all the other user friendly browsers we all love so much?  Is there a way to force IE10 to render it in IE9 with a specific comment, kind of like using the F12 command (develpers tools) within IE, but having it default automatically?

 

Site:

Here's my conditional comment:

<!--[if gte IE 7]

<liink href="css/ie.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

<![endif]-->

 

Here's my IE specific css code:

#LayoutDiv11{

     margin-bottom: 190px;

}

 

Many thanks!!

    What's this about?  ID's can be used only one time per page. 

      <div id="LayoutDiv11"><div id="LayoutDiv11">

     

    You also have a stray </a> tag on line 209, not to mention missing ALT attributes on images.

    IE10 is much less tolerant of code errors than IE9 or IE8.

    IE10 is a standards-conformant browser. Your problem stems from poorly

    written CSS, JavaScript, and JavaScript hacks. No fix for that.

     

    If you stop complaining about what you perceive as a browser flaw and

    focus on the flaws in your approach to your page design, you will cease

    to have problems.

     

    The CSS framework you are using is flawed, as are the JavaScript plugins.

    Hi Chris,

     

    Much of what's available through the old widget browser (it has been

    mercifully discontinued in CS7) is bad. You have to understand that

    jQuery plugins are a dice toss. Between that and using Adobe fluid

    grids, you are kind of asking for trouble - but I would say the culprit

    is likely a bad jQuery plugin. Ditch it for something modern and vetted

    and I'm sure you'll do better.

    For a free widget, WOW Slider is not bad. If you want something a bit

    more feature-rich, and flexible, and have a budget, our Image Gallery

    Magic 2 is without equal - and fully automated inside Dreamweaver, of

    course.

    Look at jQuery Cycle 2.  It's responsive and uses minimal markup.  I have it working in a FluidGrid Layout without any problems.
