Quality css troubleshooting in or around DC? or virtualy?

Asked by Evan (800 points ) September 13th, 2007

So.. i’m tired of trying to figure out what’s wrong with my CSS, and i think i’m just not far enough along w/ css knowledge.. so I’d like to hire someone to do it for me. I’m in the DC area, but i suppose they don’t have to be in the area.

What I’d like is reccomendations, or insight about who, or how. What I need is for someone to make the existing code that we have compatiable with all the recent IEs (p.s. i hate IE) .. probably v6.0 and up, though maybe i don’t know enough. if it makes any diference what type of code it is.. you can view it at:

www.mosaicfound.org

it works fine in firefox, obviously, but IE is my problem. i would appreciate knowing where to look, for help. oh.. and p.s. i’ve spent a TON of time on most of the major CSS help sites, and i’m kind of just sick of trying it on my own, unless it really is some simple fix. thnx in advance if anyone has suggestions.

Based on your previous question I assume that the real problem are your dropdown menus? Have you tried just modifying the code in http://www.alistapart.com/articles/dropdowns (which should work in IE) so that you have just the dropdown menu working in a way that works for your site, then adding in the rest of the css for your page? That’s what I would do.

Also, I highly recommend using a css conditional to include an IE specific css file… it’s saved us so much headache on Fluther and makes our css much more maintainable.

if you want online help with CSS, you might try Experts Exchange. I have heard some really good things about Experts Exchange but have nver personally tried it because it requires a paid membership.

Btw if you want to see solutions to experts exchange questions, the trick is to google “search query site:http://www.experts-exchange.com/” and then click on the cached button on the search results

I outsource all my XHTML/CSS to www.xhtmlized.com. You can get them to cut up a one-page mockup for $250. They also do troubleshooting, if that’s what you need.

Or you install the “User Agent Switcher” Firefox extension and use it to switch to the GoogleBot user agent (search for it) ;-)
