IE Debugging - hasLayout or other issue?

  1. I'm trying to debug this site in IE:

    Currently the header image (done in CSS) pushes down on the search box/nav menu, causing a large gap, the left sidebar overlaps the main content div and the right sidebar is pushed below the main content div, with just a little bit of it's orange border visible below the left sidebar.

    I've tried applying hasLayout using zoom:1 to elements that are breaking in IE, but to no avail so far. Perhaps this is not actually the issue that I face?

    Are you still having this issue? I see nothing wrong in IE - although in Firefox your "Site Map" nav item is pushed to the next line but that's easy to fix.

    If you are still having the issue, what version of IE are you using?

  3. I'm using IETester to view the site in IE6 through 8 and I'm having the most problems in IE6 and 7 (of course).

    I am still having these problems. Any thoughts on resolving them would be appreciated.

  4. I have managed to sort out the header in IE6/7. For those who might experience similar troubles, Modern browsers are very forgiving if you tangle up the divs in your header (for instance, if you misuse #access as the background for your header instead of the actual #header, Firefox will forgive you, IE6 will not.) This means that display errors can easily be caused by Thematics Header (which has a seemingly overabundance of divs) in IE6/7 if you aren't careful to insure that they are actually interacting correctly.

    I managed to receive help on this topic at Sitepoint, that thread can be found here:

    As it pertains specifically to Thematic, I feel it proper to provide the link.

    Currently, I am trying to figure out what the trouble is with my sidebars in IE6. At the moment I labor under the assumption that the margins, paddings and floats do not add up properly and that IE6 does not like that. I would greatly appreciate anyone who's willing to glance at my site with Firebug or some other debugging tool to see if the catch scent of a problem that I don't recognize.
