OK, my site has a page “Supporters” that has some business card images on it. I have found out to have the card expand/enlarge and that works nicely, but…
Is there a better way to have the enlargement make sure it is in the browser window fully? If I get some cards on the edge, they cut off the information displayed which makes some folks to send a “bug” report to the webmaster (me).
The page that you have linked to does not show any business cards. Do you have a working page that shows an example of the “buggy” view? As I recall, the images of the cards should not be clipped along the right edge, so let’s see what your code looks like with some images in it. BTW - do you know what browsers are the folks who report the problem are using?
I just noticed the IE line in the head section.
You might try changing it to:
<meta http-equiv=“X-UA-Compatible” content=“IE=edge”>
otherwise, you are forcing newer versions of IE to behave like IE9.
Somewhat but more of some “enhancements” is a better way of putting it. The page is working here but two things are “wrong”.
1 - IE enlarges the images about 2x more than Firefox, chrome and opera.
2 - Images that are close to the left/right/top/bottom of the window will be cut off - enough that there are complaints and I would like to find some kind of a solution.
So, if you click on the page link above and wait (there are about 20 images or so) you should see the card images and when hovering they expand. Hope you can see this and give me some guidance to help the issues go away.
FYI: the way the page is designed, the images will enlarge to within no less than about 1/8 of an inch from the right edge of the browser window. If you want the images to enlarge more than they do, several adjustments will have to be made to accommodate a larger size on :hover. It is not as simple as just setting a “zoom” number larger.
Thanks for this. I know that I can enlarge them more than 2x but what my issues are:
1 - IE enlarges them much more than Firefox and/or chrome - appears around twice or more the enlarged size.
2 - I need to make sure that IE9 is supported and the only way I can get that is with the compatibility line you say I should take out. If there is some way else, let me know please as I get a lot of complaints when I leave that out of the page from folks that still have Vista (and IE9 of course).
3 - I need to find a way to make the enlargements center in the window so the ones that are near the edges (all around) don’t get cut off.
P.S. the site is http://www.saccc567.com and go the the Supporters menu item. If the images don’t display right away, wait as I think it might take a while for 40+ images to start loading but have never done any performance testing in that area.
The problem is caused by your use of zoom:2 which in IE9+ and in Chrome (chrome supports zoom) you will get a box that is twice the size and seeing as you have already scaled it by twice the size with transform then the total is four times the size of the original.
Thanks, this helped the zoom/enlargement. Sorry I missed the original stuff - or rather I edited somehow and lost the hack but now have it back.
However, my real issue is that if the enlargement is close to the edges (left, right, top or bottom) then the full image is not displayed - it is cut off. Is there any CSS way to make the card stay in the display window? I have tried f few things but they don’t work and since you have way more knowledge about the CSS stuff than I do maybe you can help out.
Once again, in an attempt to be clear, it is the behavior of IE8 that you are concerned about. IS THAT CORRECT? Because the images are all remaining ON screen (never clipped) in other browsers including IE10.
Frankly, IE8 isn’t worth the trouble of a bunch of hacks these days. Remember that support for XP ends early next month.
No, I don’t think hacking IE8 is what is necessary.
Upon further investigation, it is the last/bottom images that get cut off. If you scroll to the bottom of the images and enlarge them the bottom about 30% seems to get cut off. That is what I really believe needs to be addressed since I am getting asked about why that happens - some if the sponsors want their information to be properly displayed which would include the last part of the image with their phone number and website. So, can you help me understand how to fix this?
In IE8, the images are anchored at the top left corner of the list item. When the images enlarge, the grow to the right and down from a little below that point. All other browsers are fine. The images in the code that I gave you in the last thread remained centered over the respective small image in IE8. Admittedly it was pretty clunky code, but it worked in all browsers including IE8. Perhaps Paul can suggest a better way to accommodate IE8.
I guess I am not too clear on the IE8 thing. I am NOT concerned about IE8 and below. I do know that there are some “quirks” with IE9 but need to support IE9+ for this.
I also am seeing that the last images displayed (bottom) are enlarging but are being cut off at their bottom because they enlarge over the smaller image - which until I was informed about this was OK by me. So I am asking if there is a way to get the bottom images to be fully visible when enlarged.
Thanks all for your help on getting the zoom “fixed” but now need to fix the bottom image enlargement.
