    Anchor Tag in IE, is not working?

    Asked by omnigon on January 30, 2013 at 05:04 PM

    I hope this is the last question for today.  In this form: 

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30296353896970

    I have an anchor tag that has a position: absolute; and it sits on top of the Enter Here button. It works great on all browsers but in IE, it is not being recognized. 

    I see it when I look at the code, it highlights right where it is suppose to, but it is not an active link.  So clicking on it does nothing.

     

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    The only workaround I can think of is to embed that image form into a webpage using the iFrame method

    At the risk of raising your hopes now only to dash them later, I believe I've found a solution that involves the use of an image map. I hope to post the solution later tonight (Barbados time).

    Hi again,

    Please test this clone of your form and let us know your thoughts. (There's a slight shift in position to the right and down from your form but I think that can be overcome with a bit of additional injected CSS.)

    Thanks.

    The Clone looks like it works.  

    In a similar situation going forward, would you suggest using an Image Map instead of an absolute positioned anchor tag like I did?

    Thank you for coming up with a solution.

    Yes, use the image map solution, unless my colleagues have a better method because it appears to be the only one that works across all browsers (even the infamous IE6). That's because image maps have been around for a long time, plus they have not been deprecated in HTML5.

    It appears you have deleted the original form. That being the case, you can just clone the clone to your account and use that form.

    Incidentally, this tool was used to create the image map and then the code was edited to suit.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Thanks.
