[-] IE8 not showing snippets! Firefox working fine..
« on: May 11, 2011, 11:14:47 PM »

I have the pro version.. and have set the snippets up to only show segments on a page.

Sadly this works great in firefox.. but NOTHING shows in the WYSIWYG editor in IE8  Confused
Where am I going wrong?

This is an example of what i have on a page

<!-- #BeginSnippet name="home page introduction"  --> <h3>This is a title</h3>
    <a href="link.php">This is a link</a><br>
    <br>
    And heres a bunch of copy that you can also edit blah blah blah<!-- #EndSnippet -->

<!-- #BeginSnippet name="some other section"  --> <h3>This is a title</h3>
    <a href="link.php">This is a link</a><br>
    <br>
   And heres a bunch of copy that you can also edit blah blah blah<!-- #EndSnippet -->

I'm not aware of any issues with IE8.  Does the online demo work for you here:

(I'm using IE8 myself right now, and it all seems to be working fine.)

For those people having the same issue - Im very happy to report I have found the answer to this problem for me!

I have made a new installation of snippet on another site - and hey presto no problems with IE8.

So I have gone methodically thru all the admin panel settings on my broken one.

And found it!

The cause of this error in IE8 can be found under the "Editor Groups" tab.

"Default Editor Height" - this can NOT be set to a percentage! IE does not like using % for heights.  So I have changed it from 100% to 400 and now everything works fine.  All of my text boxs are now open white boxs with text in them instead of flat grey lines.

hope this helps someone else as i have seen quite a few posts with people over the years complaining of this issue.

This is what things look like when logged in using IE8 - when the default width is not changed.
