IE6 Display issues

Post by dglenn99 » 12 Feb 2010, 17:45

Greetings!

1st, thank you for such a powerful customizable theme for beginners. It is a joy to use. :)

However I am having issues with rendering youtube videos and their lead in lines:
http://new2linux.com/linux-guides/insta ... es/ubuntu/

It works just fine with any browser other than IE6, but unfortunately IE6 still has such a large market share I cannot ignore it.

I post each video prefaced with a comment and author citation, then I give it 11 blank spaces before I place another video. This apparently is the spacing that I need to give it an empty line between the bottom of the video and the next comment/video combination.
====== example =======
This ends up looking like:
This is a video of "blah blah" by author [link to you tube video]
space
space
space
space
space
space
space
space
space
space
space
This is a video of 'Something' by author#2 [link to you tube video]
====== end of example ==========
And so on down the page. With IE6, it is as if I am skipping only 4-5 lines because the comment "This is a video of 'Something' by author#2" Appears about 3/4 of the way on the right side of the 1st video, then the 2nd video starts immediately underneath the 1st video without any spacing at all.

I am able to use the theme "Piano Black" and it handles the page correctly with IE6. Unfortunately I have no idea what I need to do with Suffusion to make it work correctly with it. 'Piano Black' has it's own IE6.CSS style sheet with it.

I would like to continue to use your theme, but if I can't overcome this, then I will have to find another that will render them correctly. (Oh, if IE6 would just GO AWAY!)

Last but not least, I want to use the WP-PRINT plugin to give my users the option to print an article if they want, but it isn't showing a link/icon for the print option on the post or comments. Any ideas how to add this functionality?

Many thanks in advance!
Doug

Let's try a few small steps. First, for each YouTube video and lead-in line, put the whole thing in a div with the class "fix":

<div class='fix'>
<p>Your text</p>
<div style="display: block;">
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344" data="http://www.youtube.com/v/GhnLk3gviWY&re ... owsearch=0">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/GhnLk3gviWY&re ... owsearch=0"/>
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"/>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
</object>
</div>
</div>

Also, at least for the period of debugging please turn off WP-HTML-Compression; it is extremely difficult to read such a long line of code.

Mind you, YouTube renders fine, so it must be something with the way you have set it up at your end. See here for an example: http://mynethome.net/blog/2009/08/the-y ... h-a-twist/.

Thank you for the update. I will give that a try. I apologize for having another theme in place by the time you went to take a look at it. It is part of a class project and I have to make sure it is presentable on Mon/Wed of each week for the teacher for grading purposes. We only have IE6 in the lab, so that is why.

Again, thank you for such a wonderfully powerful theme for newbies :)
