Branding just plain missing in IE7

  1. Love the theme obviously, otherwise why would I use it, but the entire branding/header section at the top is absent in IE7. It appears to be there in the source code but is a blank canvas in the browser. I normally work on a Mac and only just discovered it. The evil Mr. Gates strikes again.

    The site is here:

    Is The Master Coder there? Perhaps when they have the time they could take a quick and expert glance at the source of that page and see where MS went astray.

    The theme is mostly original apart from a header_aside placed on the right at the top.

  2. In fact it's thw whole header section, branding plus access divs that's missing in IE7. They are there in IE8 and every other browser so far as I know. It's very odd.

  3. I've fixed this although it's a hack. It's the header aside mentioned in this thread:


    Here is the code for making the header aside:

    // adding the widget area to your child theme
    function my_header_widgets() {
    if ( function_exists('dynamic_sidebar') && is_sidebar_active('header-aside') ) {
    echo '<div id="header-aside" class="aside">'. "¥n" . '<ul class="xoxo">' . "¥n";
    echo '' . "¥n" . '</div><!-- #header-aside .aside -->'. "¥n";


    which produces this in the page source code:


    <div id="header-aside" class="aside">
    <ul class="xoxo">
    <li id="text-671222353" class="widgetcontainer widget_text"> <div class="textwidget"><img src="http://www.mysite/home/wp-content/themes/personal/images/header.jpg"alt="Blog Name">
    </div><!-- #header-aside .aside -->


    In fact what you've got is an unordered list without a closing tag. I fixed this by adding the closing tag just after the url that points to the image I want:

    <img src="http://www.mysite/home/wp-content/themes/personal/images/header.jpg"alt="Blog Name">

    In other words I added the closing tag right inside the text widget using the admin interface.

    Nifty eh?

    Love to all. I can't bear to part with this theme. It's the font, balance, weight, colour scheme and general look of it which I enjoy. There's nothing quite like it.
