modified artisteer31-orangecream skin messes up site

Hi, we outsourced the development of a skin to a company and they modified the 'artisteer31-orangecream' skin to produce this web site.

http://awm-solutions.iwmi.org

It works fine in Google Chrome and Firefox. However in Internet Explorer (7,8, and 9) the site does not show the navigation bar and the logo appears on the top right when it should show on the top left.

There is a jQuery image slider which also does not show up at all in IE.

In my version of IE (9.0.8112 on windows Vista Pro) a little icon appears next to the refresh button which switches Compatibility View on and off which then shows me the correct way the site should appear. But some users who use IE 8 and IE9 dont get that icon at all.

What could possibly be wrong here? Any help would be appreciated.

Re: modified artisteer31-orangecream skin messes up site

Hi Dominique,

The site is showing fine for me IE & IE9 but not in IE9 Compatibility Mode (which is almost equivalent to IE7). 

I noticed that the "StyleHeader.css" and "StyleFooter.css" files are being referenced from within your layout.master. This isn't the right way to reference style sheets in mojoPortal. These files should be referenced from within the style.config file of the skin. This may or may not be part of the problem.

To fix IE specific issues, you should add css rules to the StyleIE7.css file in the skin directory. As far as what to add to fix the issues you are having, it will take some work. IE7 is stubborn sometimes. You can start off with the following.

To get the logo placed correctly:

DIV.logo { left: 0; top: 0; }

To fix the menu:

.art-nav { top: 0; }

There are some z-index issues with the menu but if you add the above I'll take another look to see if I can fix it.

HTH,
Joe D.
