Clearfix Revisited

The new style rules I’m using:

.clear:after {
    content:" ";
    display:block;
    height:0;
    clear:both;
    visibility:hidden;
    font-size:0;
}
.clear { display: inline-block; }
/* Hides from IE-mac \*/
* html .clear { height:1%; }
.clear { display:block; }
/* End hide from IE-mac */

For more infor­ma­tion on the update, have a read over at Jeff Starr’s Per­ish­able Press arti­cle. If you are com­pletely new to this tech­nique, it orig­i­nated from this arti­cle.

vBulletin and Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility

If you are expe­ri­enc­ing some dis­play issues in IE8 with your vBulletin-based forums (and/or gen­eral sites), you might want to try adding the fol­low­ing meta-tag in your HEAD section:

<head>
    ...
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"/>
    ...
</head>

You may get more info about this meta-tag and issues that might be con­nected with IE8’s strict­ness at the IEBlog, and/or via this Microsoft Sup­port arti­cle.

Lykke Li and Hip-Hop
