Missing blog comments fckeditor box with IE 7

Got a weird one. The comments box has disappeared on blogs when viewed with IE7. You can see the results here http://www.12thstreetsportsbar.com/rice-says-shsu-is-neato.aspx I dug around for quite a while into the css and also searched the forums here, but nothing looked like the likely culprit. Any ideas?

Re: Missing blog comments fckeditor box with IE 7

Hi Tim,

It could possibly be a CSS issue but my best guess its its caused by invalid markup. When I check that url against the w3c validator, it shows a lot of errors, some of which can probably be ignored but I would fix the ones about missing or incorrectly formated closing tags. Some browsers are more graceful than others in dealing with missing closing tags and it seems in this case the most likely problem. Its either an image with a closing > that should be /> or a missing /> somewhere.

btw, noticed the meta tags for fixing the IE page flash problem when viewing the source of the page, nice trick, had not seen that.

Hope it helps,

Joe

K, worked on the xhtml, and even commented out the IE7specific.css, yet http://www.12thstreetsportsbar.com/and-the-verdict-is-.aspx (chose a dif page that has just pure html in the post) the comment box is still missing. I then added the IE7specific.css back.

The w3c validation link: http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3a%2f%2fwww.12thstreetsportsbar.com%2fand-the-verdict-is-.aspx

Just figured it out, I had a max-width applied to the .blogcenter-rightnav class, but no width.  Evidently IE7 did not like that, adding width:70%; worked.
