    Hey Phil.... I deactivated and reactivated the easy blogging.... but still same results... did you want me to deactivate all and then just activate easy blogging?

    Also I clicked on dropins from the plugin super admin menu and got this



    Update..... Somehow it would not let me exit easy blogger.. had to rename plugins just to get out of easy blogger and into super admin screen.... Then renamed plugins folder back to plugins and deactivated everything except for easy blogger...

    Same results with IE9 distorted screen..?

    Hey Phil... I am using the default easy blogger nav bar theme.. also, once a users exits easyblogger, they dont have a option to revert back to the easy blogger layout? Is this correct, they cant switch back and forth like superadmin?

    Phil..after all the issues I had with that admin menu editor plugin i have to delete my entire database and start over... I emailed that developer with the info you guys provided but still no answer.. It was only $10 but it does not work.. just tried on new install with no other plugins active..

    Anyway back to the IE9 and easy blogger.. after a clean install I was able to get it to display corecctly in IE9 but just couple more small issues

    1. I am displaying an Iframe code <iframe> inside the welcome widget of easy blogger... The content shows in firefox and chrome but not IE

    2. The help close button seems to fix and now appearing also but one small issue with it..

    On a smaller screen using Chrome only screen options and help get hid behind visit site and exit easy mode

    In this screen shot... on the 20 inch screen the menu items are only hid by chrome

    So recap.. only issues now are help and screen optoins being hid in chrome on 20 inch and smaller screen...


    Iframe not displaying in IE 9 via the easy blogger dashboard widget

    PS. I hope you guys consider making something like admin menu editor that actually works.. the ability to add menu items with there own icons you can upload and take away menu items not neaded and ability to add iframes in those menu items without having to hack any files would be awesome..

    I can't help you with the iFrame in IE I'm afraid as that's custom but check that you are using the right HTML syntax. IE can be a bit picky in that sense.

    Are you sure it's a 20" screen? I'm looking in a 23" screen with the browser reduced down and it's fine...

    As for the IE bit, as Phil said, it is possible that IE doesn't like the code you're using. I just tested embedding the IFRAME, and it worked fine for me. I used this code:

    <iframe src="https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/" class="widefat" ></iframe>

    The class="widefat" part is just there to make the frame wide just enough to fill the entire widget nicely.

    Another thing that may have happened is that you're using a non-secure URL in your IFRAME, while accessing your Easy Blogging dashboard through https. If this is the case, IE9 usually pops a message similar to this at the bottom of the window: http://i55.tinypic.com/2vngbqh.png

    As for the other issue, top right area is generally very active. You have a lot of control over what's shown there and what isn't in plugin settings - you can choose whether or not you want to show help and screen options, admin bar or Easy Bar (visit site and exit easy mode links).

    Hi VeBailovity.... Here is the iframe I was using

    <iframe src="http://www.sumopaint.com/app/api.php?key=mykeyhere" width="970" height="700" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

    I believe I changed the width to width="100%" though.... what does your widefat class look like in css?

Thank NAME, for their help.
