WebYep gallery and IE9

Post by indtryk » Thu Dec 22, 2011 4:01 am

I've made some sites using WebYep gallery, and they are all nice and do as they are expected to - except when it comes to Internet Explorer 9! The images will appear in the upper left corner of the screen on a white background. No nice switching as was the idea!
There is another issue about the same sites in IE9: When you open the sites the screen will be darker for a moment untill you click somewhere with the mouse. That also only counts for the IE9.

Any suggestions? Has it got anything to do with WebYep at all?

A link to the page would be very helpful. This doesn't sound like a WebYep issue, since WebYep doesn't "darken" the screen when there is a gallery on the page. Third party plugins like Lightbox or Fancybox do that.

Hi y'all

Problem seems to have been solved - but I still don't know what hit me...

In Page Inspector --> Header --> Meta Tags I added the name of
IE" http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible
- and the content:
IE=EmulateIE7
which I suddenly remembered from somewhere in a forum.
After a couple of times I got the syntax right and: Bingo! Cheating on old-fashioned Internet Explorer is a nice feeling…
Guess I have to remove it again once IE wakes up, but then again - at that time I'll be too old to worry about it...

Hope it will be usefull

It seems to be a problem with the DivX player: there is a new version of the Lightbox plugin that addresses this problem. Unfortunately the latest version of the Fancybox plugin is no longer free, but maybe a new version of JQuery will solve it.
It is a bit peculiar to let IE9 emulate an older version: now Microsoft is finally getting up to date with html5 and css3…
