Description

Since of #7280, IE6 rendering of issue/version/project subjects in Gantt is very ugly :

  • if the issue is not assigned to anybody, then the truncated subject will be aligned on the left, thus overlapping the icon
  • else and if use of gravatar is enabled, then truncated subject will not be displayed at all

This can be seen with IE8 in IE7 document mode too.

is this really a problem that needs fixing? IE6 is end-of-life and Microsoft is desperately trying to get rid of it, now IE9 is available (and their recommended browser), should supporting IE7 be worth the effort?

#4 Updated by Etienne Massip over 6 years ago

Not sure. According to http://ie6countdown.com, there is still a lot of IE6 users, though.

Then, Redmine should also work with IE5, IE4, Netscape, ...

Where is the limit? What does Redmine support?

People should use newer browser versions. Redmine could require this, as I would say. Other work in Redmine is more important than this issue.

People should use newer browser versions. Redmine could require this, as I would say.

People is not an issue, but browsers on workstations in a company are not systematically up to date (IE6 still is 11%).

Other work in Redmine is more important than this issue.

This issue disallows the use of the Gantt chart to IE6 users and the work to solve it has already been done with #7280.

But I guess it wil finally be closed as a Won't fix ; anyway we should consider adding browsers versions in Redmine requirements.

Thx Entienne.
I believe this happens in IE9 also, when in normal IE9 render mode. However I am using the gantt_edit patch. See notes. http://www.redmine.org/issues/2024#note-66

I'm using Opera and I think I have same problem. I test it IE8 and it works fine!

I'm using last SVN redmine
Also the graph in gantt doesn't appear. But if you move your mouse in the issue you can read the issue description.

I found that should be a Opera issue with overflow-x option:

I dont know if redmine can do anything with this.

#10 Updated by Mario Luzeiro almost 6 years ago

I found that in Opera, if I cut the
white-space: nowrap;
it works better!

Still supporting IE6 won't help in giving the final blow to that old crap.

It's time for those last 11% (now 8% at ie6countdown.com and 2.3% at statcounter.com) users/companies to do the update, while Redmine's human resources can focus on new PM features.

#12 Updated by Etienne Massip almost 6 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed
  • Target version deleted (Candidate for next minor release)

Indeed.
