I've searched the forum but found no answer to this problem. In the IE8 browser the left navigation in shoppage_header changes widths on different pages, just like percentage-width tables. This does not happen in IE7 or in the Firefox browser. Has anyone found a fix for this?

Thanks,
Jennifer

Certainly. https://www.b2b-wireless.net/noca/
Click on Products and Services in the left navigation, for instance. You'll see the width change. This only happens with the IE8 browser.

i can see actually your matter in safari browser since my IE version is 7.0.

it seems you need to make experiment to https://www.b2b-wireless.net/noca/shoppage_header.htm.

the code in the file :
<td class="vt" id="left">

maybe you can add a fixed width :
<td class="vt" id="left" width="150">

and see how ?

Hello Diego,

Yes, I have tried setting a fixed width in
shop$colors.asp
shoppage_header.htm
and in the stylesheet

to display the Category Box in a fixed width so it will not expand and contract on different pages, but none of my changes have fixed the problem in IE8 (or in Safari).

Thanks,

Jennifer

I might be wrong, but in stylesheets/shop.css, look for this:

#left {
/* Styles */
width:20%; /* Change to alter width of left column */
}


then change that to something like:

#left {
/* Styles */
width:150px; /* Change to alter width of left column */
}

Hello Simon,

You are correct. I have tried this and it does make some improvements. I still get some unexpected formatting in the Featured Products box, and I get some left column Category Box width changes on certain pages. Perhaps the width of the main content area is affecting this. Thanks for your suggestion.
