Suits
[resolved] Suits theme incompatible to IE8 and lower? (8 posts)

    Hello there!

    I believe the issue is well-know for WP users, but I need to know from you guys whether the problem can be solved or not.

    The image banner on the header won't display in IE8 (and lower) and also the horizontal navigation menu looks a bit messy.

    I'm using a child of the Suits theme and despite debugging it for errors (and they show up during the checks), there are no real mistakes on code.

    Also tried deactivating the plugins and it didn't work.

    Browsing around I've found some references to a certain "css3-mediaqueries.js" but not sure whether this will work or not.

    Could you please help here?

    Many thanks,
    D

    I used the IE CSS3 Support plugin to help get things sorted out for <IE9 in Twenty Twelve (and I still have a little more to do), and now I have some custom style sheets to help deal with older IE not being able to deal with media queries.

    Hi leejosepho, IE CSS3 Support won't fix the issue found. Definitely need to find a way to add few lines to CSS to get this.
    Any idea?
    Thanks

    I would consider hiring someone to do this for you as getting the site working in IE8 and below can be a full-time job;

    Thank you, Andrew Nevins, for the tip!
    But I'll keep the topic active for a bit, just in case...

    Guys,

    I'm so happy to share with you the solution for this issue and close the topic, finally.

    All you have to do is to add the following:

    <!--[if IE]>
    <script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->

    Into the <head> section (header.php).

    The solution has been provided by David, from http://www.davidtiong.com

    Isn't amazing?

    = )))

    Thank you all for the ideas and support.

    Cheerio!
    D

    Note to admins/moderators:

    I'm sorry. I forgot to code properly the message above. Just noticed that after submitting the post.

    Challenges vary from one theme to the next, work-arounds come in many forms and Andrew was right about this one needing to come from a pro! ;)
