I hate the IE Explorer.
My site looks great in FireFox, but for some @#$%ing reason IE likes to center all the content unless I write code into the content.

IT'S SO @#$%ing FRUSTERATING!!!!! AHHHHHHHHH

I've spent 6 hours tonight trying to fix this.

It doesn't help that I know almost no CSS or php.

Why do you people insist on using the IE Explorer???!!! I hereby order all of you to switch to a REAL BROWSER!!!!!

Look at me! I'm even using all caps like a Freeper.

Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap crap crap crap Crap

1. I think if you simply put

<style>body: { text-align: left; }</style> in your HTML that will take care of IE's problem -- except where you specifically want content centered.


... or add the text-align property to the body statement in the css of the theme you are using in Drupal.

Happy day! Happy day!

I do use Drupal, and I took your advise and put "text-align: left" in every conceivable place I could think of in the code. After 73 tries I got it!


Whoooooo Hoooooooo!

You are THE MAN!

If you go the The Mother Of All DU Meetups, I'm gonna get you drunk, my friend.

Hell, I'm so happy!

2. Obeyed your command over a year ago brain, Mozilla!
IE sucks. I have to use it still for some things, but :puke:

I empathize, but alas can't give you any help. Sorry! :toast:

Great luck to you! You'll give yourself a soft spot if you keep banging your head so much. :evilgrin:
