Hello from Serbia. Nice Balkan crowd we have here
Thank you Chris so much for your interest and effort.
In fact, I do have that code in my CSS file and that’s not the problem. Problem is in transparencies of black and white color I’m using for borders, shadows, separators, input fileds backgrounds and such small details. They do give solid color with content background but I have decided to use them for editing efficiency. Lets say a buyer wants a different background image then there’s only one line in css he/she has to modify to have the same effects on those details.
I have even found one great transparency generator for IE6 -8 here but it doesn’t play very nice with other IE spcific properties, probably because it usses those lovely ms filters. Also, there are a lot of elements with border-radius, bg color with transparency (which changes on hover state), box-shadow (with transparency)...kind of mission impossible for IE8 .
So, mainly, I just have to specify those transparent colors into solid ones and few structural moments I found looking ridiculous. Not really a big deal but it does need a fair amount of time to go through whole css file and filter all those rgba values. I guess it’s best I go back to work now
It doesn’t have to look identical in IE8 , but it does have to be functional. If you’re using CSS3 to progressively enhance your template, you shouldn’t have an issue. Just include logical fallbacks for browsers that don’t support CSS3 .
Thank you, this helps a lot. Template is completely functional in IE7 and 8 but God, that ie.css is going to be filled.
Thanks everyone again.
Thanks everyone for replies,
that’s the same thing I undersytood from reading this forum. But how is then possibile to see items which support only IE9 among the others.
I’m not trying to point fingers, really, I would love that IE8 is not required. I would rather spend time optimizing template for mobile devices than trying to make it look the same in IE8 .
Thanks again everyone for your quick replies.
first of all I’d like to apologise for bringing such a pain, as IE is, to your attention and for asking a question that might have been already answered on somewhere (I can’t seem to find it). For several days now I’m trying to find official statement regarding browser’s compatibility and IE8 . From everything I have read so far there’s an conclusion that IE8 and 9 are a must, but then I went through Site Templates category and found few items which state IE9 only.
Have you tested your design in IE6 (optional), IE7 , IE8, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, and Opera? While we do allow for alternative displays for older browsers — think simplified layout for IE6 users — your design must not break in any of these. If they do, your item will be rejected, with a request from the reviewer to make the necessary updates.
So I would really appreciate if I could get official statement on whether IE8 is required or not, especially if template is mainly CSS3 based.
Thank you very much for your time and I wish you a wonderful day,
Hello, I’m not really the best person for advices considering that I’m still learning for my first PSD file to get approved, however, what really bothers me in your template is typography, specially in services and blog parts. There’s no enough spacing between headings and body copy, line height should be “taller”. Also, going down the page, there’s less and less colors and more of different grays text on gray background. This makes it very difficult to read with such low contrast. Icons in services headings are too close to headings in my opinion.
I guess this is best I could see. I wish you all the best and good luck
Well, I didn’t expect this amount of response. Another nice surprise for me I don’t know what is tradition here but to me this would be moment for group hug
PS — Now I feel bad for rejecting one of your templates.
Awww….don’t feel bad, I’ve learned some very cool stuff since then.
