I just noticed this weird ... that follows every title in the banner in the plugin installed. If you look in the banner with the title in it there is a ... after it.

Which browser and operating system are you using?

I am using Internet Explorer. I just tested it with Google Chrome and it is not displaying.

After looking into this closer I came up with what I think is the problem. Internet Explorer does not support inline frames. Because of that this ... is showing up beside each plugin name.

I was able to reproduce the issue on the latest IE, and I could fix it with the provided patch.

This issue was caused by a duplicate text-overflow: ellipsis;. Basically, the #plugin-information-title had text-overflow: ellipsis; specified, while the #plugin-information-title h2 has it as well. So the one on #plugin-information-title becomes unnecessary and could be removed, as it caused issues on IE.

Also the problem is not just on Internet Explorer but I was able to get the problem on Windows 10s Edge browser.

I've tested today and my patch fixes the issue for me on all of the following:

  • Windows 7: IE 9, 10, 11 (Edge)
  • Windows 8: IE 9, 10, 11 (Edge)
  • Windows 8.1: IE 9, 10, 11 (Edge)

I am still not getting it to work. I have tried it on a few different browsers and a few test installs (WordPress 4.2.4 and 4.3 trunk). I don't know if it is something on my end or what?

@kidsguide: are you still experiencing this issue?

#19 @kidsguide
9 years ago

@DrewAPicture: I am still very well experiencing this error on both Internet Explorer and the Windows Edge browser. The ... shows on every website (even localhost fresh installations) and on both my Windows 10 laptop (new fresh Windows), and my Windows 7 desktop computer. The ... does not show on Firefox, Chrome, or Windows Safari. It is also happening on whatever plugin I view, not just on one or two plugins.

Just to note, this error is still happening with 4.4 beta 1. I made a fresh installation and it still shows the "...". I even tried the patch again on it but it still doesn't work.

I do not see the ellipsis, even with IE 11/Windows 10 (which is no longer supported in the admin).

This might have been fixed in WordPress 4.8 by r40672.

Thanks for looking into this one @sabernhardt.

Since WordPress has not supported any version of IE for a handful of releases, and the overall global usage is less than 1%, the time to fix this has passed.
