Problems with ie 9

Date: December 26, 2011 Author: ang Category: Affordable Web Design Internet Tips Tutorials Tags: , , Comments: 0

Many website designers and web developers are coming to me complaining of website problems with ie 9.

The first and easiest way to avoid the flaws of the 'WordPress IE9' is to force the browser to emulate previous versions. In other words you can force the ie 9 browser to emulate ie 8. If emulating ie 8 doesn't fix the problem you can force the ie browser to emulate ie 7 and so on.

To force IE9 to emulate a previous version, place one of the meta tags, as seen below, into the header of your web page above the other meta tags.

emulate IE8

 Javascript |  copy code |? 
1
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >

emulate IE7

 Javascript |  copy code |? 
1
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" >

emulate IE6

 Javascript |  copy code |? 
1
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE6" >

emulate IEie5

 Javascript |  copy code |? 
1
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE5" >

Example:

If forcing iE to emulate a previous version doesn't work, then you'll just have to take steps simplifying your code until the WordPress IE9 disappears.

I can fix your IE problems for you if you need help.
