[resolved] Compatibility issue with IE8 (8 posts)

    Hi,
    I would like a horizontal menu to appear in the footer of my website.

    I have tried both using a plugin
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/menubar/

    and styling with css a custom menu widget in order to be displayed horizontally.

    While the rest of the page works on IE8, my footer menu appears vertically instead of horizontally, only on IE8. Do you know what might be causing that?

    IE8 is not compatible with HTML5 or CSS3 - so if you add code that uses either one, it won't work. For additional help, you may want to contact the developer of your theme:

    Thank you for your replies. I tried these plugins and other similar ones but they don't solve the problem.

    I noticed that when placing the same widget into the header custom widget area, it works on IE8, so maybe the problem is in the footer.php file.

    I noticed some lines of code in the header.php file that say:

    <!--[if IE 8]>

    <style>

    So, I thought that maybe I should add some code in my footer.php file but the thing is I have no idea what to put. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    What have your theme's vendors said about your issues?

    I haven't contacted them yet for this issue but I guess I should.

    this code for only ie8

    .ssf-yellow li

    }
