    Hello.
    Like always, Great Plugin.

    But I have a problem.
    http://celfin.org/agencia/acciones/compra/

    Shows great in IE8, Safari, Firefox, Chrome

    But in my company we are using IE7, i know that this is kind of old, but i Can't change 400 browsers so easy.

    I was reading all about different browser, also change the theme, but the problem was the same.

    when I change the CSS shows ok for all the mentioned browser, but in IE7 simple goes away.

    Is something with the browser? the theme? the CSS?

    Thanks for your help and time.

  2. Of course there are some browser differences, but this has been accounted for and normally, a default installation of Gravity Forms displays fine in all of the current browsers, including IE7.

    I see a variety of other spacing sizing issues in firefox as well so there may be some theme styling issues to begin with. I see that you've added several custom declarations in the style.css file for the forms. I'm pretty sure your issue is there.

    You may want to create a separate IE7 stylesheet if you don't already have one and tweak the styles there.

    I have kind of.
    But I have a newbie problem there.
    Tried different ways to direct wordpress when is coming from IE7, but don't work.
    Do you have some kind of trick?

    Thanks a lot.

  4. I was referring to using the IE conditional comments in your page template. You can create an IE specific style sheet and only load it for the specified IE version.

    Here's a good resource.

    Thanks Kevin.

    I use that, but for some reason the Form reads the original CSS.
    Some friend tell me that with that instruccion the CSS code sum each other.

    But there's no way to only use the CSS for IE7.

    I'll try to continue trying to solve this.

  6. Try putting the IE conditional comments just before the </head> tag. They need to come AFTER the other style sheets in the markup so they are read last and can override those initial values.
