Limit to the amount of custom panel widgets visible in IE?

On one of my sites here (http://paulmcdermottmusic.yolasite.co...) I have a whole list of songs, each in it's own custom panel widget. When opening the site in Firefox, everything displays correctly, however in Internet Explorer it will only display a certain amount of custom panels (I think it's 22) and all the rest of the items which I'd placed in custom panels just appear without the panels.

For example if I add another item into a custom panel at the top of the page, one of the items at the bottom will now no longer appear in a custom panel.

Anybody got any ideas on this? I've upgraded to the latest version of IE and tried it out on other computers but still get the same result. Not a problem for me since I use Firefox, but since a large number of people still use IE, I'd like it to appear the same to them as well.

Hello Half Eyes Closed,

I think that this is the first report of this issue with the custom panels. I can confirm your report of incomplete display in IE8 (don't have 9 as running XP) and see that all panels display in Chrome.

Thanks this means i can rule my computer out as the problem, so it must be either an issue with Yola's widgets or an issue with IE (which does seem pretty likely). If any Yola staff could advise me here...?

Your site looks really fantastic Paul, at least in Chrome and Firefox! I am able to see the issue in IE as well but need to do some testing to see if we can reproduce it on our end. Please allow us some time to test and we'll follow back up with you shortly.

Thanks for the response Laura. And my name isn't Paul, the site is just a fan site for an Australian musician :P

By the way, nice addition to site-builder of setting a default font for the whole page; it was such a pain having to go through before and change font on each text widget individually :)

Hello Eyes Half Closed

I must say that this is quite a strange thing to happen. I have checked this page of your site, and I wasn't able to see anything that could cause this error. The only thing I could think of to be a problem is custom code you added to this page, such as the search feature at the top or one of the other HTML widgets you added. The search button is not displayed in Firefox for me, displayed as an empty box in Chrome, and as a non-displayabe image in Internet Explorer, so there could be some code problem here.

You can test this if you save your page as a test page named "test" and not add it to your navigation. Remove every custom code widget one after the other, and always re-publish and check the live site in between. If you named your test page "test", type this URL into your browser address bar to view the test page: http://paulmcdermottmusic.yolasite.com/test.php
Check every time if the Custom Panels are working. As soon as they are, you know that the last code you removed was the problem. You can then either review or remove/replace the code on your music page.

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the reply. With the search bar, it's just a find in page script and I am aware it only works correctly with Firefox at the moment, but it's the best I could find.

Anyway, I've tried a few things which have left me even more confused. I created a test page at; http://paulmcdermottmusic.yolasite.co... and just added 25 custom panels, each with a piece of text in them. The other page will only display a maximum of 22, however they all display fine on this one.

So I went back to my music page and removed all custom HTML (apart from a simple pop up window code which I used for lyrics) and I'm still left with the same problem. And I know the pop up code isn't the problem, because I've then put that on the test page, which doesn't alter the look at all.

The only thing I can think of is there's a limit of total widgets that IE will display, but all my text + picture widgets display fine, so I have no idea :S

Any other suggestions?
