asked on

google calendar not appearing properly only in IE

Hi Experts,

I am trying to embed a google calendar in my website and it gives me problem only in IE.
This is the site:

FF and Chrome work OK.

the google calendar is on the left side.

This is the code.
<iframe src=";showPrint=0&amp;showCalendars=0&amp;showTz=0&amp;height=260&amp;wkst=1&amp;hl=ko&amp;bgcolor=%23FFFFFF&amp;;color=%23A32929&amp;;color=%2323164E&amp;;color=%232952A3&amp;;color=%235229A3&amp;;color=%23875509&amp;;color=%236E6E41&amp;ctz=America%2FChicago" style=" border-width:0 " width="200" height="260" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

Open in new window

thanks in advance

Interesting, the single line of code you sent works fine in IE, but not the website? With the code, IE asks if I want to allow blocked content, but doesn't give any warning for the website

hi dkim18,

I've noticed that this google calendar inside the IE that has a compatibility viewer turned off looks like this. Could you try to turn on the compatibility viewer setting on?

Go to IE->Menu->Tools->click on Compatibility Viewer


Interestingly, I actually get the opposite effect. On Windows 8 IE10, it works fine for me.

If I turn ON Compatibility View (e.g. you click the little torn page icon and it turns blue), then I see dkim18's behavior with the calendar not showing up.

I am testing this on windows 7 and IE8/IE9. The Compatibility View didn't matter.

yes, it works. however, the weather icons are missing on IE8(IE9 works ok.) unlike firefox.

Is this an IE version issue?

I'm confused. Can you show me what weather icons do you mean? Maybe you can attach an image here.

plz see both images. one is from IE8 and the other one is from IE9.
This is funny, I'm not seeing any weather icons in all the browsers. But I've seen inside you have another frame calling the google calendar which has a meta set to IE-7. If you could try and change that value to IE-9 and see what happens?

This is the code that needs to change to IE9:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7">  to
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9">

I am not following...
I searched text in entire site, but couldn't find <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7">.
hi dkim18,

You can try opening Firefox and then move your cursor anywhere inside the Google calendar and then right click it, select This Frame-> View Frame Source.

You can find in there.
