[solved]small differences between my test server and isp

Postby tchboy » 17. July 2012 21:52

Hi
I am running xampp on my windows machine for development purposes and my isp is running apache on a linux box.

I have come accross some small differences in how the my webpage behaves on the two platforms.

The main difference is a drop down menu I have, on my development machine the drop down items were appearing behind the div beneath it on the page(this isn't what I wanted). But on the ISP server the drop down worked fine........

after a couple of items the drop down stops dropping down properly on my development machine but no such problem on the ISP server......

what could cause this??

I ask because the site when up and running properly will be hosted somewhere else completly.

any suggestions????

thanks

Hi tchboy,

This is very common a browser compatibility mode issue.
Microsoft Internet Explorer does have different rendering and compatibility modes and can change them wether the website is a local website or an internet website.
Try a different browser and verify that this issue persists or is gone.

best wishes,

You could test with Firefox extension Firebug where the differences in the code are.

But at the end this is a browser rendering issue i think.
