Windows 7: Webpage Display

Webpage Display

First let me say I like IE8 much better than IE7.

I have two issues. I have made webpages for people over a period of time using Dreamweaver. The pages are generally very simple and nothing hight tech. Some use a password to access the webpage.

Here are issues:

Pages without a password requirement do NOT display the page, but does display the code for the page. NOT very usefull I would say.

Pages requiring a password, will show a popup that tells the user that a response is needed to access the webpage, but to do this, in the tool bar you have to tell IE this is a trusted site. When OK is clicked, IE8 sends the user to never never land which what the Webpage would have done when a bad password is entered. So how do you tell IE that the Webpage is "Trusted"? As it stands now it is a catch 22.

Any enlightment would be appreciated.

I haven't used Dreamweaver myself, but is it IE8 compliant?

If it works in IE7 compatibility mode then maybe you could add an IE7 emulation meta tag to your page header.

Code:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" >

I am not sure Dreamweaver CS4 is IE8 compliant or not, it installed and ran fine on Win 7.

z3r010 definitely worth a try and sure can not hurt anything. Thanks

I found it weird that on the more info page:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...).aspx#SetMode

All IE's from 5 to 8 were listed for emulation except IE6, which happens to be my favorite.

I found that the Meta statement alone will not fix the problem.

After playing around for a while, I found that taking the password code off the page, then in IE8 open the page.

Now go Tools --> Internet Options --> Security Tab
Highlight the "Trusted sites", then click the site button.

Here come the BS:
highlight the website url and click the "Add" button. Now we get an error statement saying the url has to start with https//.
Note the "s" after the https

The first time I did that it added the page without the "s" and then the page worked as it was designed. The second page I tried to add to the "Trusted sites" gave me error statement and all since then have done the same. With the "s" in https//, the trusted site is wrong and it does not work.

I am sure that error has been in IE since day one, I had just never used it before.

How do I enter the correct address without the "s" for the Trusted sites".
