IE Problem Solved???

A nice Thank You to

LJ
Gary
Komando

who all sent me emails saying “hey, problem here!” and especially

Larry and the other Gary who sent me a screen cap of the problem as well!!



BMEWS has been having a problem with the sidebar being wrapped around when the blog is viewed with IE. Since Sunday. And Drew has been having a very busy few days and he hasn’t checked his email since Saturday. Serves me right. D’oh!

Anyway, I checked the last 16 posts for html errors. I shrank all the graphics an extra 10%. I made sure every single html tag was matched and properly closed. I turned the left alignment off on the picture of Jesse Jackson’s head. I pulled the animated .gifs. Nothing seemed to work.

I went into the source code and went over the main blog template and the main .css files. Nothing ... although I did see that Allan had used an old form of the code for a text bullet, which is why you may have seen the “&bull” several times at the bottom of each post instead of a when you read BMEWS using IE. That’s minor, and I fixed that next.

But I could not find it. I could not find where the problem was.

So I had to play Dr. House and do exploratory surgery. Yank a post, reload the blog in IE. Problem solved? No, so put the post back and try another. Finally I found the culprit. I think. But for the life of me I can’t really see anything wrong with that post. All the widths seem Ok.

IE has a notorious history of having problems with blog sidebars. My advice is to use Firefox, Opera, Safari, or damn near anything else if you can. But sometimes you can’t, so I did what I could to make things Ok with IE.

At least this time the issue was not due to a table entry. That’s another bloggy bugaboo that gives some browsers hiccups.

At any rate, now it looks fine when I run it with my IE. I hope it looks fine on yours. I still hate IE though. What a slow motion POS.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
