Horizontal in Firefox, Vertical in Internet Explorer


Recommended Posts

I have some ShareThis buttons at the bottom of each post on my blog. As the title says, they are displayed vertically in IE and horizontally in FF. I want IE to display them like FF. Here's what I'm talking about:

Here's the code:

 

<span st_url="<?php the_permalink() ?>" class="st_twitter_vcount" displayText="Tweet"></span><span st_url="<?php the_permalink() ?>" class="st_facebook_vcount" displayText="Share"></span><span st_url="<?php the_permalink() ?>" class="st_email_vcount" displayText="Email"></span><span st_url="<?php the_permalink() ?>" class="st_sharethis_vcount" displayText="Share"></span>

 

I have no idea why they display differently or how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated.

If you look at the code that is being generated, it looks like some elements are set to use "display:inline-block". This works in Firefox/Safari/Chrome, but inline-block support is incomplete or missing in IE6-7 (http://www.quirksmode.org/css/display.html), which may be causing the problem. I'd try giving the spans "float:left; display:block;" and then adjusting positioning/spacing as necessary. I'm betting that this change may fix your issues.
