Support » Theme: Magazine Basic » Layout issues in IE compatibility mode

  • Resolved cbridges


    Hi all,
    I’m using the most current version of magazine basic for my test site. The site looks good on Chrome, FF, Safari and IE (9.0), until you switch IE to compatibility mode. Once IE is in compatibility mode, the whole site is messed up. I have checked html that I entered and it appears ok. Could this be something with the theme files (like an unclosed div)? Heres a link to my test site if you want to try it in IE compatibility mode.

  • Many, if not most, modern responsive sites will look weird in Compatibility View. The purpose of Compatibility View is to allow web sites that were designed for older IE browsers, like IE7 and IE8, to look OK in IE9 and greater. Users should not have Compatibility View turned on for all sites by default, just for sites which are giving them problems.

    Supposedly, if you add the following meta tag to the <head> part of your site, this will disable the Compatibility View menu option in IE, but I haven’t found that to work for my sites.

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge,chrome=1">

    Thanks for your reply. I was thinking the same thing about using compatibility view. I will try your code and see what happens.
    Thanks again!

    The magazine basic theme is not working for IE 5, 6 and 7. I checked using How to fix it?

    @ggopalan, you need to hire a developer – forums cannot possibly provide this level of support.
