Support » Plugin: Event Calendar » [Plugin: Ajax Event Calendar] Not working in IE6 and IE7?

  • Resolved David Tierney


    I have version 9.9.2 installed and I just tested this in Internet Explorer 6 and upwards. I found that the calendar simply did not show up in IE6 and IE7 but did in IE8. That is, the category topics show, but there is no calendar.

    I could not see anything in the WP plugins area about compatibility. Can you please tell me if this expected or an error that may have a solution?

    Thanks. So you do plan to support IE6 and IE7 (not everyone does). Great.

    Any chance you could offer a rough estimate on when you think that might be integrated?

    Either way, thanks for the plugin. It is nice and clean.

    I locally test the calendar in IE7+ and numerous users have reported using it successfully in those browsers (search the last month of AEC forum posts), so your issues are specific to your implementation.

    Huh? I will check it out with other plugins disabled as otherwise I can’t think of what else could make my use of it not work.

    Right now it is here while under development

    Although this post specifically mentions IE8, this known issue occurs in all old versions of IE.

    Or you can wait until later this week when I release the next version which patches all the known issues from version

    p.s. Microsoft no longer supports IE6, so I won’t be either.

    Thanks for that. I will wait until your update and first see if that solved the problem. (And I understand on IE6)

    By the way, do you know of conditional code that would put up a message to someone in place of the calendar if they try to access it via IE6. If not, I can search the internet as I am not versed enough in PHP to whip that up.

    Either way, best to you.

    I wouldn’t use PHP for that, just some css:

    Conditional comments only work in IE, and are thus excellently suited to give special instructions meant only for IE. They are supported from IE 5 onwards.

    Conditional comments work as follows:

    <!--[if IE 6]>
    Special instructions for IE 6 here


    IE7 works for me now. Thanks for that.

    And in fact IE6 also seems to work fine. Nice job even though you are not supporting it 🙂

    There was one small issue which was that the layout of the new month/year selection options above the calendar did not display inline with the arrows on either side. Same issue in both IE7 and IE6.

    For me, I just added the following style to my stylesheet to remove that from IE7.

    #aec-quickselect {*display:none !important;} /* IE7 and below only - removes month and date selection */

    And in IE6, the actual arrows did not appear on the buttons to scroll left and right. Otherwise all was good in my minimal testing of it on IE6.

    Just feedback and thanks.
