Browser Compatibility

Reported by peters@slx-online.biz | July 16th, 2014 @ 01:40 PM

One of my testers has reported an issue using IE6 or Firefox 3. The top menu only shows the first, left hand menu item, without text or correct colours from CSS. If you mouse along the menu bar each menu item appears in turn, without formatting, and disappears as the mouse moves on. The right hand column (actually 'leftcol' floated right) is also missing. I have checked in Virtual XP here and confirm his findings. Screenshots show incorrect and correct display.

I have scoured the documentation, blogs, forums etc for information on browser compatibility and fixes, without success.

Please advise. If Exponent won't work below a certain browser level, a test during loading would be useful to flag up a message that the user should upgrade. I appreciate that some features may have difficulty with earlier versions, but displaying a menu with CSS is fairly basic.

I am using 2.3.0 patch 3. http://sandtoft.slx-online.biz

    I have successfully included the Nyman code to fix the gradient problem. However no matter what I do I cannot get PIE.htc to do anything. I followed the guidance, adding the behaviour to the relevant CSS, and have tried with and without double quotes, and path from root /themes/simpletheme/js/PIE.htc or just js/PIE.htc.

    In the process of doing this in Virtual XP and IE8 I have started to get an error - see capture1 and capture.

    The critical bit is sorted - the menu - but it would be good to get the border radius working too!

    I've now tried the .php and it seems to work. I've applied the rounded corners everywhere applicable, but can't get the menu items to round - not worried, it looks OK for the charlatans who use IE!! Yes, I was putting the entries in the stylesheet. Thanks for your help. Peter.
