Making My Site Work in IE and Chrome

Posted 03 December 2011 - 10:48 PM

Hi!

I've been working on a site for a while now. It consists of HTML, CSS, JQuery, and PHP. It is completely from scratch in notepad++ lol. Anyway, it works exactly how I want it to in FireFox, in chrome it is a little screwed up, and in IE I don't even know... its like literally awful looking.

I'm not sure if I'm just awful at coding or if there is some big overwhelming mistake I made in IE, but it looks awful!

The site is . http://mechanicalgamer.com/index.php

I would post the code but there is a ton of PHP and it will make everything look weird.

The only problem I see in chrome is that when you go to archive for example the gray box continues to go down forever.

So could somebody please help point me in the right direction?

Thanks a ton!

One thing I can point out for you:
http://mechanicalgamer.com/contact.php does not exist on the server - brings up a 404 not found error. You should fix that :)

Well, Jimmy that's obviously because that page and several others haven't been created ;).

@OP I don't see the problem you're talking about, it works perfectly fine in Chrome.

There are lots of errors in the HTML and CSS.

You should have a proper DOCTYPE set up at the top of the page:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />


Username: <br><input type"text" name="username" maxlength="15"><br>
Password: <br><input type"text" name="password" maxlength="15"><br>
Email: <br><input type"text" name="email" maxlength="255"><br>

Missing equals after Type


Also, there are errors in the CSS:
border-top-width: 1px;'
- Notice the '

<?php
echo "background-image:url('news2.png');";
?>
- Shouldn't be in the CSS.


font-weight: strong;

Bold not Strong.


<img width="100%" height="100%" src="news2.png">

- Put the actual size of the image here. ie 960.


There's probably more issues, but if you get a good degugger, like Firebug for Firefox, Chrome has a built in one, and I believe IE9 does (or you may have to download something extra). But this will help you spot and narrow down many of these issues.
