I just took a look at the Commons in IE 8, and the overlay on the hero slides is significantly screwed up. Please see the attached screenshot.

My patch wasn't ported over to 1.2.2, but it's on 1.2-branch:

1.2.2 was an emergency release, so I only included the necessary fixes. The rest will be taken care of when I'm back from vacation. Matt, can you verify that you mean IE8? And Ray, can you verify that your fix (labeled as IE6/7) will fix it?

#3 Updated by Matt Gold over 10 years ago

So verified. See attached screenshot.

#4 Updated by Raymond Hoh over 10 years ago

Yes, I've verified it.

The commented code meant that the CSS fix will apply to IE 6/7 only. IE8 is a better browser and doesn't require the negative margin offset.

  • Status changed from Assigned to Resolved

OK, I see what's happening. The previous, unprefixed code was being read by IE8. I've verified that Ray's fix will solve the problem when 1.2.3 is released. Marking resolved.
