I have just noticed when I log in the admin back using Internet Explorer, the graphs disappear. On Firefox and Chrome, every works and looks good...


Anyone have any idea?

@vashichino7

The latest version of IE just underwent a patch update a few weeks ago. Upon it's release, there were several issues with osCommerce sites. Buttons and image problems to name a couple. Most of the issues were on modified sites where questionable code was used. I say questionable because some of the code was deprecated and / or just not correct. I found several templates with these issues.

(php) 'code was deprecated' has NOTHING to do with/does NOT affect browsers. i just updated my IE/Windows last week. disappearing images very obviously has nothing to do with browsers, if you really know how things work. browsers setup may have something to do with displaying some web elements such as pop up (statistic) graphics like that in osc 2.3.1 admin.

Chris didn't say "PHP". There is HTML code (tags, attributes) which is deprecated, and it is recommended that they not be used. And of course, there's always the great Microsoft IE versus Everyone Else battle of what standards to follow. Some browsers are more lenient than others in allowing poorly formed HTML code (including deprecated content) to render more or less as intended. Ironically, it appears that recent versions of IE are among the strictest in this regard. Also, IE (older versions, anyway) is famous for not properly displaying PNG images with alpha channel, or JPEG images in non-RGB color models.

i referred specifically to php deprecated code simply because, if any, its more likely than deprecated html tags, to have any affect on displaying html elements, given that the admin bit uses html 4.01 transitional - you notice them when/if you do a w3c html validation - unless you are looking for trouble to change it to xhtml strict.
to the OP, this is a non issue because you can just use non-ie browsers, there is no public access to admin.
