Completely Blank - SOLVED

  • Mar. 21st, 2007 at 3:09 PM
Has anyone else had this problem...?

S2Expressive, paid account.

Enough of my friends have raised this issue when it comes to my journal, and the problem is, is that they can't see my journal at at all. It's a blank window with only the background showing.

I wasn't aware of this issue because both my Firefox and IE are up to date, but it seems anyone who is using an older version of IE (as for an older version of Firefox, I'm not sure. No one using Firefox has complained yet) cannot see my entries.

Any suggestions on how to fix it? If I remember correctly, the code I used had something like escape code (?) for older browsers, but it was suggested to me by another user to remove it since it moved both my sidebars and appended it to the bottom of my journal.

Any suggestions and pointers would be great and thanks.

Where did you get that stylesheet? It seems to be missing the so-called "Holly Hack".

Oh boy... it's been a while since I've put up this layout.

I believe it was a post in this community with almost like a "starter template," where all the components were explained and then a final block of code where you 'put it all together'. I actually tried to search for it before I made this post, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I wouldn't be surprised if I'd just made it up in my head.

But what's this "Holly Hack?"

It's probably this post from back in the day. There's a known issue with IE6 and relatively positioned boxes, and the "Holly Hack" was something cooked up to trick IE. Go to the linked post and try adding the section marked "Utility Code" on down to your stylesheet. I don't have IE6 here any more, but I can check to see if it worked tomorrow.

That's the post.

I've added the code without any problems, and if you could, I'd really appreciate it if you would check tomorrow and let me know.

Looks good to me in IE6. The important part is the section that says height: 1%, which isn't specified for all the necessary elements in the base stylesheet, but is in the theme sheets. Go figure. I've already submitted this fix to the LJ staff for the S2 bug bounty but I haven't been credited yet. IE6 problems are probably low priority for them.

Thanks a lot :)
