PeopleSoft Fix IE9 Spacing Issue


IE9 Spacing Issue

As most of you probably noticed with the upgrade to PeopleTools 8.51 there is a spacing issue (white space between header and top of page) with IE9. To resolve this you need to tweak your PT_HNAV_TEMPLATE html file. Follow the instructions below to fix.

Step 1

Launch App Designer and open the PT_HNAV_TEMPLATE html file. If you get an error complaining about it being read-only, make sure you open up definition security, PeopleTools group, and move the PT_HNAV_TEMPLATE over to the right and save.


Step 2

Comment this line out and add a line below, to look like this:

<!--<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">-->
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7">

PS IE9 Fix

Step 3

Now in IE9, go back to PIA and refresh the page. You shouldn’t have to restart PIA or clear cache for the change to take affect.
