so today for the first time i opened my website in internet explorer using ie8 and discovered half my images won’t show up…
my css background declarations are all the same:
background: url(images/something.png) no-repeat;
‘images’ is a folder and i don’t put a slash before it cause apparently then it doest work in any browser… I’m never sure when to put a slash before and when not….
i think there is a difference between OS. i mean i know linux uses forward slashes while windows uses back….
interestingly on my contact page the navigation buttons show up…nice for change…weird….February 1, 2012 at 4:34 pm #95935
Do you have a link to your site…?
The slashes mean different things, but none of it has to do with the OS.
/images = absolute root, folder called images
images = folder called images in the current directory
../images = folder called images in the directory one closer to the root from the current directory
../../images = two folders closer to the root from the currentFebruary 1, 2012 at 4:42 pm #95939

You are using HTML5 elements that IE8 and below doesn’t know how to handle.
You could use something like this: http://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/February 1, 2012 at 5:54 pm #95963

ok so now my navigation links show up in ie but nothing else…
the top fabric pattern image is not there and any image with position:relative or absolute won’t either show up…
see blank page here. (there should be images)
also ie6 is a total mess and doesn’t even accept my query cycle plugin for my portfolio slideshowFebruary 1, 2012 at 9:51 pm #95976
ok i know the problem but i don’t know the fix
all the images that are not showing up are using css3 multiple backgrounds
background: url(blah.png), url(‘blahblah.jpg’);
how can i make multiple background on one element work in ie6, 7 and 8?
and then there is my slideshow which doesn’t work at all in ie6 and 7February 1, 2012 at 10:58 pm #95982
“Multiple backgrounds will be completely ignored when they aren’t supported. If you can make do with a simple background color, make sure to declare background-color:
before you start using multiple backgrounds. Alternatively, you can also set an image as a background with background-image and override it with a second background declaration. We strongly recommend you don’t polyfill this.”
