IE 6 Supporting problem

We have used the system (ver2-3-4-5) for some time, and all functions work fine. We received some users from China report that there are some errors when they are using IE6.

1. In the Shared File module, the "Add file" button is missing for some time.

2. The DropDownList doesn't expand its length to match the content's length

Re: IE 6 Supporting problem

Typically issues with IE 6 are skinning issues and can be solved by overriding css in the IESpecific.css file to solve problems with IE 6. Not all the included skins work well in IE 6 and I am not interested in solving it because I don't care about IE 6 anymore and think it should die and no-one should use it.

But if you still need to support it then you will have to invest the time with trial and error css fixes, it is possible to solve issues like this but it is a pain in the rear.

Best,

Joe

Re: IE 6 Supporting problem

Hi,

To help you with your IE6 troubleshooting, you may want to read this post: http://www.mojoportal.com/Forums/Thread.aspx?pageid=5&mid=34&ItemID=4&thread=4311&postid=18112. Basically, your best bet for tools to help you fix IE6 issues are DebugBar and IETester.

I fully agree with Joe, IE6 should die, it is ancient. Just think if someone was asking you to make your site compatible with Netscape Navigator or worse yet CompuServe's browser! Just my two cents...

HTH,
Joe D.

Re: IE 6 Supporting problem

You need to upgrade all files if you want to upgrade, you cannot just upgrade resource files, that is a good way to break your site.
