View Full Version : IE7 & Image Thumbnail Viewer

1) Script Title: Image Thumbnail Viewer

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/thumbnail.htm

3) Describe problem:
I love this script and have been using it for some time with no problems - until IE7 was installed.

Now, the larger image still opens up correctly inline, but the right side of the 'pop-up' window is 'stuck' to the right edge of the browser window, leaving the background showing through on the right. Also, the large image is no longer properly draggable.

www.wattsracing.co.nz (http://www.qualitycomputers.co.nz/racing/workshop2006.htm) is the link to the website I'm having a problem with, although the same problem can be viewed (in IE7) from the above script URL on DD.

Could someone please make this script work in IE7 (as well as still IE5+ :D). I wouldn't mind if the larger image is not draggable and always opens on the right of the page, so long as I can't see any background through the side.

Thank you in advance.

IE7 is still in beta (albeit public beta) trials. I don't think you will find too many developers or designers willing to cater to its idiosyncrasies until it makes its debut as a full release version.

Better to alert MS as to its shortcomings. Perhaps they will fix them before the full release. A new version of a browser should always be backward compatible to its predecessors, if at all possible.

One thing you can try is removing the DOCTYPE, if any, from your page, this should force IE7 into quirks mode and that may clear things up.

Thank you for taking the time to reply John :).
I'll send some feedback to MS shortly.
