This question about Configuration: Needs followup in Tasks
I have been trying to get this configured and working under IE7 and IE8, but the output has me baffled. I read some of the comments in Foswiki.css, but there is a lot of customization for Opera/Mozilla that has me a little confused in order to debug it. Note that the presentation looks OK in all browsers when using WidgetsSampleDesign2
, but not WidgetsSampleDesign
. I have tried various combinations and changing the WIDGETSSKIN_DESIGNTOPIC seems to be the key, which is why I am focused on Foswiki.css.
In my testing, I have verified the display is correct for Mozilla Firefox 3 and IE6, but does not display correctly for IE7 and IE8 with the following settings:
=========excerpt from SitePreferences.txt=============
<!-- Preferences start here -->
Select the Widget skin:
* Set SKIN = widgets
Get the common text section definitions from this topic (see the "Customisation" section in WidgetsSkin
for more information on what this means):
* Set WIDGETSSKIN_DESIGNTOPIC = System/WidgetsSampleDesign
Get the Moveable Type compatible CSS and images from this topic (must be in the System):
* Set WIDGETSSKIN_CSSFILE = http://wiki/foswiki/pub/System/WidgetsSkin/themes/cityscape-sf/screen.css
Get the extra CSS required by Foswiki from this topic
* Set WIDGETSSKIN_TWIKICSSFILE = /foswiki/pub/System/WidgetsSampleDesign/Foswiki.css
Set the column preference:
* Set WIDGETSSKIN_COLUMNS = twt
Any ideas? Does anyone have this skin running in production with IE users?
thats pretty weird. how does my site
look n IE7/8 ?

@Sven: A bit offtopic, but your site looks strange with IE6, too: The Sidebar, which is on the right with FF, is below the normal content.

@Sven: I tried your site and it works well on IE7/8. However, I also checked out http://dev.cocomint.org/
and they both have the same problems with IE7/8 that I do. I also notice that if I try to use a single-column or 2-column configuration, it seems to work, but not 3-column. However, I have not tried all combinations.

Sounds like a bug. Please file a bug report (task item).
