Malinchalk: EllisTAA: check in the web developer tools, right-click it, “inspect”, in the background, it’d show and arrow, click it to expand the shorthand
Veneman: Wowk: right. and now i’m saying that because the borders don’t work out right, it’s better to use padding. and since your real thing doesn’t have a background, padding will work fine
Nicklas: Padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;
Deyo: Yeah but the last box falls donw
Barfknecht: Bprompt_: thanks for the help
Harborth: Bprompt_: what do i need to know to be good at css
Whitelow: Veneman: or something with last:child ?
Veneman: Wowk: syntax is wrong. check your browser’s error console perhaps?
Dembo: Chrome not showing any
Kudla: Ok As final I need to do a margin-right: 10px; at last-child i guess and calculate again
Dilaura: What is “::before” and “::after” in HTML Source?
Tabb: Cause the first boxes text is not starting from 10px from space
Veneman: Jordy: pseudo-elements. they’re not html
Asen: Jordy: come again?
Veneman: That’s not in the source, that’s in the DOM. ish.
Veneman: Yes. you create them with a CSS selector
Korewdit: And last one has no space of 10px on right side
Carreon: Jordy, CSS ‘::before’ pseudo-element: http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-selectors/#gen-content
Matuszeski: Jordy: is generated text, yes, as Veneman said, is not in the html markup itself, just like say. an li element’s bullet, isn’t either, the bullet is just generated
Cake: Is there a way to set the background image to align towards the bottom if background-size: 100% auto; wouldn’t cover the whole vertical length?
Veneman: Background-position i suspect
Bittman: Merkazu_: how about just using background-size: cover? :
Sienkiewicz: Hmm, looks like you’d have to use vendor prefixes for browser consistency
Vonderahe: Other problem is IE7+ support
Heston: Nobody cares about anything lower than ie9 these days
Nary: Who cares about a IE7 user
Pugh: They wouldnt help you with nothing really
Lajara: If your not selling coffin
Harloff: Merkazu_: is your boss a front end developer?
Flintroy: Merkazu_: yes, put him the phone, we’ll settle that one now. “look jack! .”
Kennemuth: Mouthpiece for the business unit
Lagrimas: So, as the developer, its your job to educate him
Hayword: On how catering to the older browser is 1 costing him more 2 not giving him any returns 3 providing a ****tier experience for modern browsers
Vigne: Merkazu_: so. are you guys expecting winXP users running IE8?
Brandwein: On the basis that ie8 and lower, combined, accounts for ~2.32% of browsers used
Mcguffin: Plenty of folks in the 50-70 range as part of the audience 😡
Esguerra: Thats all ie versions from 1-8 combined, 2.32% of the browsing public
Kuca: It doesnt matter, they still get automatic updates
Depaula: Even old people get auto updated
Vorhees: I agree with the need to drop them
Toussaint: Merkazu_: you mean, your target market is 50%-70% using IE8?
Knezevich: Id’ be surprised if it was even 10% of ie8 or lower users
Hennigh: Merkazu_: do you have browser stats for the site?
Kaelin: Still in the planning stages
Zurita: I do plan on adding in metrics/****ytics for the site especially for new feature development
Maxin: This company is -fairly- behind on the times
Dieudonne: Merkazu_: unless they’re running winXP, which some may well be, I don’t see case for IE8 though, their age doesn’t mean that much per se, since most JoeSixpacks users simply run whatever, if it has an icon on the desktop, and if their machine came with win7 or vista, they’d have IE10 or 11
