    When I load my website in IE7 the menu changes to vertical and there are two lines of the tagline. I made some changes using the snippets from themes&co, I have full width logo, removed tagline, social icons, navbar border and used some CSS to style menu. Everything else in the theme looks ok except the header area. I noticed when I load the demo at Themes & Co it does the almost the same thing, is there a fix for this?

    I know nikeo has done things to make it compatible with IE8, but I don’t know about IE8. IE 7 is now 7.5 years old and less than 1% of the world uses it (and certainly not the 1%).

    However, sod’s law says your clients are in that 1% 🙂 What else can’t you fix?

    In IE tools there is an emulation mode, which includes ie7. I’m not sure how well it works, but I guess it’s better than nothing.

    I was wondering because all the other parts of the theme works, although the styling is degraded, except the menu area that loses it’s ability to remain inline. Does anyone know what part of the CSS or php is causing the menu to appear vertically instead of inline. There must be an element being used that isn’t compatible in IE7. I wouldn’t care so much but my website is related to the insurance industry where many partner companies still use IE7. I know…it’s sad, but true.

    media queries don’t work in ie < 9 .
    There are some tools to have them working with those browsers, for example this :
    https://code.google.com/p/css3-mediaqueries-js/

    You can enqueue that script in the header, and then you have to change the {color}(.min).css you’re using a little bit, you have to add screen and for all the media queries (just those about the width). For example:
    @media (max-width: 767px) become
    @media screen and (max-width: 767px)

    Hope this helps.
