Search bar becomes full-width in IE
For my latest blog, I paid for an upgraded theme: Currents. And am frustrated that the search bar on the right becomes full-width, even covering up our logo on the left, when you view our blog in IE.
My business blog uses the free theme Twenty-eleven with no browser compatibility problems.
Are there any solutions for Currents using Internet Explorer? Thx!

I’m seeing this as well. Tested in IE8.
I need to pass this along to the theme team to see what they think and hope to have an answer for you shortly.
Thank you for your patience!
Currents has created this problem for me in IE8 ever since I bought the theme.
I haven’t heard anything from the theme team. Any updates? If possible, we’d like to get this resolved before July 7 when we travel and write daily posts.
Hope to have an answer for you here soon.
Thank you again and appreciate your patience.
I have the same problem. I’d also like to note that the right sidebar disappears in IE8 and the featured articles extend all the way to the right.
Hey charsindelar and spotcleanfood,
Still waiting for some updates on this. The theme team is aware of the issue and I’ll ping them for updates today.
Greatly appreciate your patience. Will let you know when I find out more for you both.
Hi, any news?
Really appreciate your patience here.
I know it’s been sometime without a fix and I’ve prioritized this for you both today.
I hope to have an answer soon regarding what is happening on IE8.
This has been patched today by our team here at Woo and should go live at some point today or tomorrow.
Will check back in tomorrow and see how things look on your end.
Appreciate your patience and thanks again!
Fingers crossed. Haven’t been able to check except through Adobe BrowserLab. How’s it looking on your end?charsindelarMemberOriginal poster
I’m looking at my blog graceyouth.org in IE8 and the search bar is still full width, spanning the entire page (whether the page is maximized or restored down). So no, I don’t see the fix yet. I’ve cleared my cache, deleting cookies, history, etc. Still the search bar spans the full-width of the homepage and covers up my logo.
As spotcleanfood mentioned, I also see that the right sidebar disappears in IE8 and the featured article banner extends all the way to the right.
Thanks, Scott, for working on this!
Here’s what we’ve narrowed it down to (as we are seing this on a few other themes as well):
While I don’t have an ETA for you it’s being looked at and hope to have a fix for you soon.
Here’s an alternative we are looking into if your interested:
Wow, deeper than I thought. Many thanks for the update.
