Well there seems to be an internet explorer issue...
below are 2 screenshots from Chucks profile. 1 with Firefox 3.0 and the other one with IE7 In IE7 the tabs are missing !!!
( the missing graphics in ie7 are not important.. thats a wrong path set in stylevar.. and firefox will simply not show them.. while IE shows a red cross to say missing graphic..
I could not check with default template as i didnt find the the template switcher..
I do not have that issue on my default template ( but i upgraded / no fresh install) and I use a self modified template.. based on the original So it can be:
either the portal => left column is there so i suppose chuck has one installed
or the custom style you are using..
or some hack
OR (more probable)
just a css issue... because the usercss is added after the normalcss .. and the ie css fixes come also before the usercss.
now there could be some place where IE needs "has_layout" which is done by defining height:99% or zoom:1.. now if your custom template css is inserted later.. AND it doesnt contain any special IE hacks..(star hack, tantrek etc... ) It could overwrite the IE specific css... which would explain the differences in IE and FF.!!!!
[EDIT] chuck i looked (sorry
) at your css.. your portal has conflicting id names.. example:
in your vbportal_demo.css there is an id content AND in vbulletin memberinfo css there is also a content: portal:
background-color: #FFFFFF; /* page background */
margin: 0px 160px 0px 160px;
} vbulletin memberinfo css ( inline)
} thats why you got that big space besides the left column...
also H1 to 4 and li is defined without margins and padding.. AND the vbulletin blocks use H4 and li as a heather definition with height and width and padding and margins... portal css and main css
h1, h2, h3, h4, li
or if an element is defined.. without a class, it can be that IE does not override it when it is then defined with a class (in tabs: li.thead) to check that, remove the h4 AND the li definition from the portal stylesheet AND from your mainstylesheet.. because your satellite template css also uses them!!!!
but it could also be defined in other places !!!
I found them twice :
once in clientscript/vbulletin_css/style-e646b322-00004.css
and second in: http://www.reeftalk.com/vbportal_demo.css
(the tabs are mainly li and h4 elements)
one and a half hours after posting... i just checked your site again.. with IE6 .. and all issues seem fixed!!! feel free to remove this post...
PS: the first shot is with FF the second with IE
