Edit mode all messed up with latest update


I am working if anyone else has seen an issue with edit mode properties/contentareas in edit mode using IE9 with the latest patch.  (7.11)

Could you please describe the problem a bit more? Does the UI crash? Is it a layout problem?


Aug 06, 2014 8:38

Hey Magnus,  It doesn't crash at all, it loads as normal but the Layout is completely messed up.  All the properties that are editable are all shoved over to the left of the screen.  The crosshatching background of content areas spans the whole width of the edit window.

Which version of the EPiServer.CMS.UI package did you upgrade from?

Aug 07, 2014 7:29

On august First, I went from 7.9 -> 7.10.  then on august 3 I went from 7.10 -> 7.11.  So there was 3 days that I was on 7.10 and I didn't recieve and email saying the edit mode was broke.  With that being said, I am not sure exactly if it broke in 7.10 or 7.11.  But I do know this was working just fun in 7.9.  I am a chrome/ff guy but this is an intranet and they are using IE9

Aug 07, 2014 14:23

So i backed out 7.11 and reverted back to 7.10 and the edit mode looks just fine.  I then used nuget to update to 7.11 and the problem returned so I can confirm it is an issue with 7.11 for IE9.  It looks fine in the latest versions of FF and Chrome just not IE9.  I do appreciate your help magnus.  Not sure if i should enter this as a bug or not.

Attached is 7.10 - >

Hi again,

I did some quick investigation and could not see that we have changed any css that should cause that in IE 9.

When you say 7.11 which packages do you mean? Do you mean the EPiServer.CMS.UI.Core and EPiServer.CMS.UI 7.11 or EPiServer.CMS.Core 7.11? We are releasing those packages individually, so it is e.g. possible to run CMS.Core 7.10 and CMS.UI 7.12.

I am a bit intrested to know if you get the same problem if you run EPiServer.CMS.Core 7.10 and EPiServer.CMS.UI/Core 7.11

I will do some more digging to, but I haven't been able to reproduce this problem.

Joshua, sorry for putting my spoon here too and using your thread (I belive my issue is related to yours).

Magnus: I'm having an issue with text area in IE11.

In IE11 it is not possible to create line brakes using enter in textarea (string property decorated with uihint.textarea), in firefox enter works just fine and creates a new line in the textarea.

(Using EPiServer.CMS.UI 7.11.0, EPiServer.CMS.UI.Core 7.11.0, EPiServer.CMS.Core 7.11.0, EPiServer.Framework 7.11.0)

When i get to work tomorrow morning.  I will send you a screenshot or email you if you would like on source control log so you can see all the versions of what i was using for.  So all in all if this helps you.  The version in Nuget prior to this latest one, everything worked.  This latest version is what I am having a problem with.  I can definately send you whatever you need me to send to help troubleshoot.

I can confirm this problem. Downgraded the EPiServer.CMS.UI and EPiServer.CMS.UI.Core packages to 7.10.0 and everything is back to normal. I kept the latest CMS.Core and Framework packages.

Oh, by the way: you need a native IE 9 browser to be able to reproduce this issue. IE 11 in IE 9 mode is not enough.

Oh, btw: you need a native IE 9 browser to be able to reproduce this. IE 11 in IE 9 mode renders edit mode as it should.

We have been doing some digging here and I think we might have an explanation of what has happened. It looks like we have passed the magic maximum number of css style rules in one css file. IE 9 supports 4095 (,

And in this case it seem like the css for the overlay are at the end of that file and therefor ignored by IE 9.

I am going to submit a bug about this and we will need to do some CSS refactoring.

And here is the bug: #116532
