Greetings.

My website is http://store.realforge.com

When loaded in IE7, my site gets weird errors that dont occur in other browsers. The footer has an unwanted scrollbar added to it, a bit of unnecessary white space is created, round corners have become square, and some graphics have actually had their color changed (lightened).

Is there a common workaround for these discrepencies?


Thanks,
Dan

Firstly try this in your CSS:

#footer {
clear: both;
overflow: hidden;
min-height: 100px;
padding: 20px 0px;
border-top: 1px solid #DBDEE1;
border-bottom: 1px solid #DBDEE1;
background: #0B0803;
text-align: left;
}

changed overflow:auto to hidden and padding defined 0px for right and left just in case the the overflow still shows as your inner divs column still to big as basically they are set to 25% each making up 100% of the footer div width, so the scroll bars show due to the columns taking more width than the footer div they sit in allows.

sorry if i made a mess of that lol


Css Border radius are not supported in ie7 or 8 nbut check this google search out and you will find some jquery and other methods to solve this:

On most computers the white space doesnt seem to be there.

The most illogical part of it is this: Why on earth are half of the links and pictures at the top a shade lighter than they are supposed to be. So frusterating. All of the pictures are PNGs, yet internet explorer doesnt consistently interperet the shading. Has anyone else run into this?

Three cheers for micosoft.

Here's a better view of the issue.

As you can see, the bottom left link, and the main banner image are displaying lighter than their surroundings. This difference in shading only happens in IE7. I have looked for common problems with PNG's in IE7 and have found there are sometimes alpha level issues, but in this case, there are no transparencies set.

I could just as well change the type of compression used on the picture, but would prefer to find a fix letting me use PNG's in the futre.
