Google Places Pages & IE8 Display Bug

Apparently we are not the only web design firm that gets indigestion making pages compatible with the many versions Internet Explorer.

There are a number of reports (here, here, here, here) in the Google Maps forums detailing a display bug when viewing Google’s recently introduced Places pages in IE 8.

The bug, first identified & detailed in the forum by EHG, prevents a user from seeing some details of the listing. Apparently when viewed in Firefox and Chrome the information is able to be viewed.

    Thanks for the tip. It was this one right?

    “I was having the same problem with my listing – however, as soon as I marked the “do not show business hours” box, the place page in IE worked fine (all the photos, details, reviews, etc appeared). Perhaps there is also a bug with the hours?”

  2. Ahhh, I just posted on a very old post of yours, wondering if there was any new information…how dumb of me.

    Thanks for the updates. The new Google Places idea is interesting, as are a lot of things you can do with web design, but IE refuses to keep up. Thanks for the post. It’s comforting to know, it’s frustrating others as well.
