Hello all,

Website: www.dyna.ca
Designed in: DreamWeaver CS5 (mostly html hand written, don't really use the graphical interface part. Just use it to review results of text coding).

I am having some problem with this site. It is a first draft rebuild of a horrible old site. I still have 2 dead links in the products section and most links to the Technical data sheets are dead. Beyond that it is more or less active (Some pages are looping into products section even though they claim to be videos and TDS's but that is intentional at this time). This is my very first attempt at writing CSS and I have had a serious learning curve doing it. This site works GREAT on all browsers including the mobile ones except I ran into one major problem on SOME Internet Explorer 8 and 9 browsers where the main section (content section on the right side) gets pusshed PAST the left side menu but on others with the same browser version it does not work.

Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 8 - layout works fine
Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 9 - layout does not work
Windows Vista ULTIMATE - Internet Explorer 8 - layout does not work

Now I remember reading somewhere about code not working in some browsers and in others it does. Can not find this article or reference as everything I come across is too specific to the problem in the coding. I think I did this right but need some guidance, advice, and help.

Thank you from a noob.

Also, if anyone has a good website search script for the box I created on top or a link on a tutorial to do one please include it in your reply and it will be very very very much appreciated! Big smile

Eddie

I will admit I have no idea

I will admit I have no idea what your site is selling but that's just ignorance on my part!

Browsing using Opera Mobile with mobile view works fine for me. If I had to make a suggestion it would be more to do with the structure and naming convention of the site itself - your products are broken down into sections and types, and it would be a lot easier for people to find things on say Google ifinstead of links like:

dyna.ca/products-6.html

you had:

dyna.ca/products/wood-plastic/

It's easy enough to do once you understand the principle behind it. I'll try and look for the article I found that helped me.

This wasn't quite what I was

This wasn't quite what I was after but might give you some idea of what I meant!
