Re: No Login with IE6

Kannued,

I looked closer at your css…is there a reason why everything is position:absolute;? When I took out the position: absolute, the input boxes were fine…Once again, this is a bit dicey because IE isn’t showing me the full page, (no images showing up, etc). I’m not sure why I can’t see the full thing in IE, and everything works fine in Saf.

In my experience with CSS, position absolute should be the exception, not the rule. It can usually be used extremely sparingly, and you can often if not always get by with the default, which is position: relative. Using floats, relative positioning, proper clearing, etc, and then applying margins and padding to create the proper spacing you’d like, there isn’t much you CAN’T do in regards to layout.

Position: absolute creates a lot of potential problems because it takes those absolute elements out of the document flow. This causes many issues just like the one you’re facing.

I think if you retool your page to reflect a more standard design approach, (ie changing abs. positioning to relative and making that work), then you’ll see a huge difference.

If you can’t make a go of it, you can send me over your template folder and I can activate it and really get to the root of it. Like I said earlier, my hands are somewhat tied here with IE.
