Anyone feel like testing my site on IE?

Post by sdfgeoff » Wed Jun 22, 2011 3:03 am

Well, as part of my game project, I have made myself a website.
Due to running Linux I can't try it on what ~90% (I think?) of the web population uses: Internet Explorer.
Anyone feel like testing it for me?

Known issues:


Firefox:

Image map has issues. Top link works, but others don't seem to


Epiphany:

None yet!

Ooops, forgot to put a link. Here you go
Eh?

It was less than 50% last time I checked. It ain't 2002 anymore. Speaking of which, image maps are gross. :P

On IE6, the image map doesn't work either. Also, IE6 doesn't do transparent pngs--it just renders on top of the png's "background color." Easy fix: since your Website background is solid black, open pngs in gimp, double click the background (i.e. not foreground) rectangle, set color to black, save as, save, check "save background color," done.

I think there's a trick in css for doing transparencies in IE. I'm also a Linuxer and have to go to the library to test my stuff on IE. Normally css and IE give me the most grief.

I'm currently thinking of writing a python cgi script solution, to trick old browsers into working with new css style stuff. Maybe even to convert pngs to gifs. Sort of like a automatic case-by-case website converter.

For example, wouldn't it be cool to use td and tr tags or div tags as pixels? Then python could just color them all. This is one thing I'd like to try. The challenge would be telling python to only create pixels in areas that required them and not fill the entire page with pixels (divs or tables). Your pngs on a page would be rendered into pure html by python, if such a script could be made. With a bit of ajax, all rendering could be done like this. The possibilities! (...3d vectors rendered servers side :) :) :)... )

the image map doesn't work on firefox 5. you should use id instead of name for image maps in XHTML. do not leave alt as empty quotes either

you probably should consider going to html 4 transitional.

Thanks for your input. I've done a bit of work on it, and should upload it in a few hours.

Right, it has been updated

Changes:
Navigation area no longer is an image map, instead it is buttons with CSS
Nav area background

Note:
all the links should work except the irc one. I still need to make that page properly....
Eh?
