[Resolved] IE 8 pages not wrapping

    I’m creating a site with several pages. It looks fine in every other browser but in IE the menu/nav bar is blown. Any ideas?

    please provide a link to your site.

    fyi IE8 isn’t html5 compliant so if your theme is using html5 elements your site will not work under ie8.

    Well the site shows up just fine in IE 8 with the exception of the menu bar. Just wondered if there was a quick fix for it, or if anyone else had the same issue.

    The site is here http://crfg-ie.org

    Your site uses the <nav> element for the menu. IE8 doesn’t support this element. I think it was introduced in IE in version 9.

    There is little if any html5 elements that are supported in IE8 and below. I know there are some scripts out there that will allow responsive design in older browsers, But, I can’t recall the names of them.

    You might want to look for a plugin that will allow responsive design in older browsers.

    Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. The only other solution is rewriting the style sheets and the html to support older browsers. But, it would come at the cost of losing your responsive settings.
