In IE7/6 the zoomed box splits until it opens. Then splits again once closed. In all others the zooming is fluid. I believe this is a CSS issue probably. Maybe something to do with the table/tr/td that are wrapped around the image by the script. I thought I was close to fixing after hours of debugging. It looked like a haslayout issue on the #zoom_content div (inserted by the script also). But now this morning that doesnt seem to fix it (buggy IEtester!). My limited knowledge of tables prevents me from finding the true cure. Thanks for your help!
My advice, rip out that lightbox garbage and let the user just open the blasted image – that’s what I scream at the screen every time I come across a site with it: “Oh for crying out loud, just let me open the bloody image” – actually, I’m a lot more profane than that.
Just another of those “blights upon the internet” – as evidenced by the page with 12 characters of plaintext, a 26k image file and NOTHING else that comes out to 102k in 13 files… even compressed it’s the size I allocate for building an entire PAGE on a site.
The problem is related to the table element it uses for the effect. You should reffer to the original developer or take a better look at the source code he’s offering as it seems you’re doing something wrong to that concern.
The anchor is not wrapped in a block. That is not causing any problem so you mine as well talk about the moon while your at it. Yes as I mentioned the problem is probably the table. 5 posts later we are back at my original question.
That fixes IE and zooms the image in and out - not just a white box. Problem with that though is that it sets the image to width 100% which slightly blurs the image. But I found a fix for that too by adjusting the padding on the #zoom_content to 10px 8px and/or adding dimensions to the img tag.
I will test your de-bugging code out too and see how it looks. Thanks - happy holidays!
