Ok, as suggested here: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?p=14991051#post14991051

Someone would probaly happily attempt to help me fix it rather then lose the features all together.

Anyway first of you need an accout login to see the works in FF and errors in IE (please ignore any glitches you see/find as sites in early stages)

Address: http://wehavetomorrow.co.uk
Email: [email protected]
Pass: testing

Now, in firefox check my nice little footer out, 'my stuff', 'online friends' etc all show fine.

Now look in IE....ouch sore eyes!

Now the codes to large to post so please download/view here:

If you manage to fix this please email me your bank sort/account number and i would love to give you a tenner for your help

OR:

If you can intergate PromChatRooms into SocialEngine using these instructions: http://prochatrooms.com/custom_footerbar.php

That could replace the footer and problems plus still earn you a tenner....i know £10 aint much like!..

Have you tried getting the page to be XHTML valid first? You're using XHTML yet are using HTML style tags - XHTML uses self closing tags, i.e. <meta a="1" b="2" /> (note the forward slash at the end) there's hundreds of errors which could very well be causing problems.

Also: it appears to work if you force IE8 to use the IE7 document mode. In IE8 go to Tools > Developer Tools and click document mode on the top menu. You can force IE8 to use the IE7 model by adding this meta tag to all your pages:

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

Put the code in to your header php script (or the associated template file or whatever your using) then it will span all of your pages for one simple edit ;)

Edit : Its a meta (its 2am which is my excuse for not explaining myself on first edit) it goes just after the <TITLE> tags of your page which will probably be in the above said file(s). Just add it after your meta name tag that you have.

Code:
<title>We Have Tomorrow | Free Your Mind With Words!</title> 
<meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=UTF-8'> 
<meta name='Description' content="Welcome to the social network! To create your account, please provide the following information."> 
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7">

As above really. This site must be driven off of a template, rather than copy-pasting the <html> for each page and modifying it as needed? If you aren't using a template, go use one now to save you hours of time when you want to make a new template :p.

Design-wise, it really is almost a carbon copy of Facebook. I'd be looking to do something to differentiate the design from FB in order to avoid hassle.

Design wise, this is just the base, the homepage will remain how it is but within the site that will change as soon as all errors and bugs have been flattenend

Do you have any suggestions on how to make the design (once logged in) better?

Anyway, for now i have disabled this broken footer as theres just a couple of errors i want to fix before i sort this one (biggest one, even tho one of you might have already posted a fix!)

So i shall keep you posted footer wise :)

That front page is ghastly! Please align the login text and boxes. Align the text to the left please. I like the stickies mood thing. Hate that green colour. I think an orange theme would look better :)
