    Hey guys.. my site has some serious gapping issues in the IE family.. especially 8 and 7. Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance!


    Any help would be appreciated… I’d love to fix this issue!!!


    Thanks Paulie_D… I made a child theme based on WordPress 2010 and then updated to 2011. They always use a reset. In my child theme I didn’t but used an ie stylesheet… something like this which worked with the anchor tag…

    @charset “UTF-8”;
    /* ensure named anchors work in IE8 */

    a[top] { display: block; }

    Gaps: Appear at the very top of the home page.. as if it’s “knocking” down the header in IE8. In IE 7 it’s the same and even the footer adds space below itself.



    Thanks Wolfcry911, I’ll give it a try!



    Thanks, Wolfcry911 IE8 looks Great!!

    This is what I did.

    The only thing is I can’t fix IE7. That gap is still there…

    I’m I calling the IE conditional comments right? Would that help. Plus the footer has a lot of extra space below it too.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    All best,


    Yeah you can use conditionall comments to target a specific browser version

    If you for example want to apply some code only for IE7, you could use the following code:

    I can’t really help you further though, as I don’t have IE7, I updated it to he latest version. I’m always wondering how everyone is testing it multiple browser versions, because I always update my browers and hence can’t test in older versions.


    Thanks for the help with the headers! It’s looking solid in IE 7 and 8…

    The footer in IE8 is solid also but IE7 isn’t coming along yet.

    I use IE Tester but plan to take a look if I can on real browsers.



    Thanks Paulie_D… I’m gonna try Adobe Browser Labs!

    Wolfcry911 – Thanks for all the hard work… it’s appreciated! I’m going to give your suggestions a try!

    Thanks again.


    Thanks again Wolfcry911 – your last suggestions worked well!

    I’m getting off the ground, finally!
