Scrolling To The Bottom

Hi,

One of my friends has made an attempt to 'build' their own website :-)

They have a problem in IE (let's ignore every other problem on the site, such as no menu navigations etc :-)

For some strange reason, the website automatically scrolls straight to the bottom of the page when you open it in Internet Explorer. It's fine in other browsers. I've also tested it on other machines and the problem persists in IE.

Has anyone ever come across this before? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello oo7ml,

Its working fine in my Internet Explorer 8, might be you are using the older version of IE. Please download and update the IE version to the new one.

Or might be this is cache issue, so please clear your browser cache and check it again.

Thanks
Edwin

Hi Edwin,

Thanks, i've already cleared the cache but the problem still persists.

Unfortunately he can't control what versions his customers use, so i was hoping to fix it from the code. I've read online that Google Maps could be causing the problem.

I don't think the problem is because of Google Maps. Google Maps is only showing unsupported browsers.

By the way why are not trying to see it in your PC by updating the IE and check?

Yes, that site automatically scrolls to the bottom on my IE 11.  It is OK on Chrome.
This means the site's coding is not compatible with IE's standards.  Does your last post mean you have updated IE8 to IE11?
