IE8 (Big) problem

Isn’t the image supposed to be inside #main?.. like the slider was/is? Not above it in an unclosed div?


That was really silly of me.

I think I’m going to publish this page, for the time being, until something works for the main page allowing the image slider to work in IE8.

Thank you very much ronpat

Yes!, that looks good. HTML structure matters. :slight_smile:

Hi ronpat

I don’t know if you saw earlier post, now deleted.

Do you have access to IE9 and IE10?

I hope all’s well in those. I tried the Emulation in IE11 and they were fine, but then so was IE8…

The page is now published as the index page

Hello qim. I have looked at your page in IETester IE9 and IE10 mode and it looks fine. Of course IETester is not the same as the real thing, although it is probably close enough - someone will no doubt correct me if I’m wrong :slight_smile:

ASIDE:I got my test of Slick working and found, like ronpat pointed out with your implementation, that although the JS might be fine, the CSS round the edges needed adjustment.

Ahhh… how?

Please!.. on my knees!

The original old index is now at

I must have misread all the updates with ronpat overnight. I thought you had got your site working in IE8. I’m not au fait with all the foibles of IE8. I can only say that I found with my little test that I needed to give the container of all my images an explicit width otherwise I got a horizontal scrollbar. Whether that would work for you I don’t know.

The image slider WORKS in Ie8 as per the link that I posted above, However, the page goes all over the place with header and footer appearing first; then you have to slide the screen with a bottom slider way to the left to see most of the contents (including the working image slider); and then go way way to the right to eventually see the sidebar!

Maybe like ronpat mentioned there is incompatibility between the css (tables?) and the the last script

<script type="text/javascript">
  slidesToShow: 1,
  slidesToScroll: 1,
  autoplay: true,
  autoplaySpeed: 3000

This is the culprit,.

Xmas is coming. An answer to this would be welcome and go under the tree.

Many thanks


I may not have read your message properly

ronpat helped me get a page published that works with the image slider in modern browsers, and displays a single static image only in IE8.

Until an answer that allows the image slider to work in a properly displayed page, this will have to do.
