Admin using Internet Explorer 6

Hi,

I’m using the /admin site in IE 6 today and see a couple things when
creating or
editing pages-

  • the page part “popups” load at the bottom of the page beneath all
    other
    content (not like firefox where it’s on top of the other content in the
    middle
    of the page)

  • The fields under the more/less link are not the same size and aligned
    differently.

Is this a known issue? I’ve searched the mailing lists but I’m not
coming up
with anything relevant to the two issues above.

Todd,

I once had those problems it has to do with IE6’s CSS quirkiness. I
had to fiddle with the stylesheet until I got a more desirable,
cross-browser solution–it’s not by any means perfect, but it looks
much better in the IE family.

Are the changes worth submitting as a patch?

John, let me see if I can get the admin CSS I fiddled with in a more
presentable form…I poked around it so much (trying to fix things in
IE) that it looks (and is) very hocky-poky. If and when I do, I’ll be
sure to submit a ticket for it. Also, please accept my apologies for
not finishing the Wiki, but I’ve been up to my nose @ work and @ home,
have had little time to get these side projects done.

As for Sara’s problem it was a two-fold problem (which I believe it’s
fixed): 1)yml formatting and 2) file permissions. She still hasn’t
been able to fix her WEBrick server, but I think that has more to do
with server config and not related to the app.

doing a file diff, amazingly (even to myself, after all the fiddling I
did) it seems the only two changes I did were:

#content table.fieldset td.label {
padding-top: 10px;
vertical-align: top;

text-align: left;
width: 20%;
}

#content table.fieldset td.field .textbox {

width: 75%;
}
