Well, I went to Big Bear’s site and went through the float tutorial/example to get some ideas for the popup window. Obviously, I took a lot of the ideas from it. i will probably go back and touch it up a little more, to make it more mine. However, after I did get the basics working so that it looks great in FireFox, I checked out what it looked like in IE. Well, the styles weren’t showing up in IE!!! At first I thought it was a problem with the style tags, but when I looked at the example popup outside of WP People, the styles look fine in IE. So, it is something to do with the iBox. It seems that none of the style properties are being passed, so my guess it is something about including the style sheet. I tried both a header link
and a include
nclude($_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . $GLOBALS['blogRoot'] . '/wp-content/plugins/wp-people/wp-people-css.css');
But, neither seems to work. So, for now, I am just going to leave it like it is, no styles for IE.
I also had to use the WordPress Force Word Wrapping Plugin to keep the text from exanding past the popup window. I think there is some code I have to add to the header of the plugin to let people know that they need the other plugin. Obviously it will be part of the install description.
I am glad I am getting closer to finishing the plugin upgrade.
