Support » Fixing WordPress » Fix for IE8 and CSS Page Problems

  • I am testing IE8 Beta and found that my WordPress site was no longer presenting correctly. Where the header was positioned by CSS has been moved. Microsoft sent out an email to developers on August 27, 2008 notifying them of the problem and gives a link to the fix.

    How I Fixed My Site: Go to the header.php file and add the fix in after the head tag <head>:
    <!– Use IE7 mode –>
    <meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″ />

    Thx redlavalamp. Begs the question, “Why, Microsoft, why?”

    Thanks! Can someone please force Microsoft to stop making Internet Explorer?!

    I guess they have their reasons.. but why can’t Microsoft make a browser as good as Firefox or Opera? Why don’t they just copy them? I don’t mean copy copy, as in violate Firefox’s copyright, but… just make it similar, all I’m saying is, it should be illegal to use Internet Explorer. 🙂
