  • Version set to 2.1.3

Confirmed. Same issue exists with:
-Latest version of the Sidebar Widgets plugin, Wordpress 2.1.3, and IE7.
-Wordpress.com and IE7

Have not confirmed issue with widgets in 2.2 yet.

The "default sidebar" things seem to be centered on the page in IE7 for some reason.

  • Version changed from 2.1.3 to 2.2

I'm pretty sure he means the integrated widgets in 2.2.

#3 @Denis-de-Bernardy

It's in the widgets plugin and the integrated widgets in WP 2.2 and (last I checked) the widgets used on wordpress.com.

This really is a blocker imho.

#4 @rob1n

It just looks different, right? Still functional?

#5 @ryan

I agree that it is ugly and needs to be fixed, but I don't think it is a blocker.

#6 @rob1n

I think this can be staved off for 2.2.1.

There is more than just appearance, although minor. In IE7, the available widget drop zone won't expand past 2 rows of available widgets. That prevents you from dragging all the widgets back down to that area if you want (one you get your 2 rows, you can't add anymore - they just float back to the top).

Again - it is something that probably won't affect many people, but it is a functionality problem.

#10 @technosailor

I don't use IE so missed this, but I tend to agree that it needs to be fixed prior to 2.2 public download. I know we won't push 2.2 to our blogs until 2.2.1 if it is not addressed because we do use widgets ALOT and too many (for my liking) of our bloggers use IE.

  • Summary changed from widgets very broken in IE to IE7, available widget drop zone won't expand past 2 rows of available widgets

  • Milestone changed from 2.2.1 to 2.2

Rob1n & Ryan: It's not functional. See comment by intoxination, 05/15/07 22:43:43. It's true annoyance for IE7 users as soon as they've more than a few plugins in the admin interface. If I recall correctly, they can no longer remove widgets past a certain point.

#15 @Denis-de-Bernardy

The attached patch makes things work as expected in FF2 and IE7. Can anyone with IE6 and other browsers give it some love?

#16 @ryan

The part of the patch that changes "placematt" to "placemat" didn't apply cleanly so I left it out. Seemed to behave well with IE6 running in wine on Ubuntu.

#17 @ryan
11 years ago

Forced it to expand to 3, 4, and then 5 rows of widgets. Looked good on IE6 and FF2/linux. Elements within the sidebars lined up properly.

#18 @Denis-de-Bernardy
11 years ago

actually, the part with the 'placematt' changed to 'placemat' does apply -- it could be cleaned up by dropping the placematt class entirely.

If it stays around, it's a big mess with themes with three columns (I'll attach a screenshot).
