    Default Happy Balance between IE and Fire Fox? Help!

    Hello~

    I have been fixing up the homepage on suited spades and have tweaked it a little bit from the original "deep stack" theme. I use internet explorer myself, but have checked it against fire fox and it has seemed ok.

    The last time I have checked it, Fire Fox has shown my pages halfway off the screen.

    Is there anything I need to add or further tweak to make it work on both? I have tried a few diff things but no sucess. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Note:Only the home page seems to be messed up on fire fox, my other pages seem to be ok

    Thanks!

    There were a lot of errors when I ran the frontpage through a validator.

    One of your "problems" is that you are only supposed to use an "ID" once on a page.

    This code is all right:
    Code:
    <div class="homepage"></div>
    <div class="homepage"></div>
    This isn't:
    Code:
    <div id="homepage"></div>
    <div id="homepage"></div>
    It is not a big deal, and most browsers will probably not care about it, but it could potentially cause havoc.



    If I were you, I would get the Firebug plugin for Firefox, and use that to identify what exactly seems to be the problem.

    I would also get this plugin: Html Validator for Firefox and Mozilla and clean up the code.

    You don't have to do this, but it will make it a lot easier to identify what is causing problems in the future.

    If you haven't already, you may want to check this site out Check Browser Compatibility, Cross Platform Browser Test - Browsershots - It basically tests your website in different browsers for you.

    I have a short description in my PAL blog.

    Thanks, Randy suggested that to me as well. I can't use it because others have already used it with my site already

    Kinda odd though, have checked it on IE on several comps and it is ok, but i have been told it was tested for IE and failed?

    Not quite sure what to DL from what you mentioned in a earler post....and the <div id <------ change that to class instead?

    Thanks

    You can still see the screenshots from browsershots.org. I took the liberty of starting the screenshot-taking-process, since it takes quite a while when you test on a lot of browsers - Which I assumed were the first thing you would want to do :-)

    See the screenshots here:
    Website overview for http://www.suitedspades.com/
    (there are also a link when you ask it to take new screenshots of a site, however, it is hard to find)

    Tomorrow you will be able to que up fresh screenshots.

    You can read a bit about ID and CLASS here:
    CSS Tutorial - ID vs Class

    If you aren't "comfortable" with CSS you may better off reading a tutorial. You may have to spend a couple of hours before you get to the part about ID and CLASS, however, it will be time well spent. You don't need to become an expert, but having a good basic knowledge of the inner workings of CSS is pretty handy when you make changes to your design/evaluate others work.

    If you don't want to mess with it you can probably also find someone who can fix it for you - it is quite easy when you know how to do it.

    Use Firefox when you download the plugins.

    Firebug: Firebug - Web Development Evolved (look for the big orange button)
    Firebug introduction video: How to use Firebug for CSS ? kristarella.com
    It lets you se the "invisible" boxes that is created by the HTML/CSS code on your page directly in Firefox - so you can easily see where the problem are without having to read tons of complicated code.

    Validator plugin: Html Validator for Firefox and Mozilla (the version you need to use should be the one at the top of the table)
