Regarding Internet explorer

OK, so I know that IE just doesn't play well with some code and just displays things strange. But maybe there is a work around for my problem.

Link to my network: ShineNet.net

On my network, my header image resides as a "header background"

I have the network name color set to transparent.

On Chrome, Firefox and Safari it looks fine. In IE the network name appears in bold black letters right over my header.

I know I can upload my header image as a logo to replace the network name but then I don't think the tabs will line up the way I want the to over the bluish bar.

I tried to upload a transparent blank "logo" I created in photoshop figuring it would take the place of the network name but be "invisible"; not so. It appears as a large white box.

Many of my target network members will be US federal govt employees who may access at work and the US govt uses PC with IE almost exclusively;I can't ask my people to just switch browsers. It needs to look right on IE.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance....

  • Well I looked at the site on IE and Chrome and it looks good on both....did you fix the code then?

  • IE 9 and IE 9 "compatibility mode" (lol) look fine. pngs with alpha layers get messed up in IE6

    If you truly do not want that text there, try this in your custom css:

    #application_name_header_link {

    display: none;

    }

    #xg_sitename {

    height: 90px;

    }

  • Thanks Ron, I'll give it a try. I'm at home with my Mac/Firefox now and everything is alright :). I'll check out the IE display performance later today. Appreciate it.

  • well you could try this as well..............I am sorry tho I didnt notice a problem

    #xg_sitename { visibility: hidden; }
    #xg_sitedesc { visibility: hidden; }
