Profile Update-Field in IE not nice-looking

In IE the profile-update textbox looks really not nice. Maybe that could be fixed in the css...

Not sure which IE version that appears on, but certainly not on my IE8.

  • Milestone changed from 1.2 to 1.2.1

I'm bumping this since browser share for IE8 is already much larger than IE7. If someone can attach a patch I will try and get it in.

Confirmed on IE7/XP.

Anyone have a dev environment where they can easily troubleshoot this? It'll probably get punted otherwise.

#6 @r-a-y

Confirmed as well on IE7.

Here's a tentative fix targetting only IE7:

If interested, here it is:

*:first-child+html #whats-new-textarea {padding:0 !important; height:52px; position:relative;}
*:first-child+html textarea#whats-new {position:absolute;}

Do we really want to fix this? IE7 market share is dropping like flies, even IE6 has a larger market share at the moment.

  • Milestone changed from 1.3 to Future Release

Punting this as the CSS above looks pretty ugly and I don't think it is a good idea to put browser CSS hacks into BP-Default. With IE9 in RC, if there is a nicer solution for this, perhaps it can go in, and if there isn't, perhaps it's a wontfix.

Problem only occurs with IE7/6; IE8/9 are exempt.


It'd actually be better to rewrite the entire CSS for #whats-new-form.

When I had to use BP Template Pack and the styles from bp-default on Twentyten, the textarea positioning didn't gel with the theme (and this is with better web browsers, sans-IE).

I'd consider changing this to "wontfix".

Ticket is almost two years old: not worth development time to fix an small rendering issue affecting only IE7.
