    Hi Otto,

    I just installed Internet Explorer 9 on my Win7 Ultimate 64bit laptop. Now, the Facebook Fan Box Widget (SFC) does not show up. However, if I hit the little “compatability view” icon on IE9, it shows the page as it appeared in IE8, and the widget appears no problem. It is a problem exclusively with IE9. Any ideas?

    My site: http://www.derekbeck.com/1775/ (widget should be just below the subscribe by email textbox on the right)

    Thanks,
    Derek

    Did you manage to fix this? I’ve got the same problem in IE9…

    Nope. But I saw other issues w/ IE9 as well, so I downgraded back to IE8.

    You can try adding this to your theme’s header.php file:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >

    No idea if that will force IE9 to behave properly, but it might, according to Microsoft’s docs.

    @otto = putting that code in header.php didn’t work..

    Thanks.

    update – I looked up other threads – <meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=7″ /> putting this in header.php worked fine 😀

    except you’d want <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" /> I think

    I’ve added this on my site http://www.derekbeck.com/1775

    Can someone on IE9 verify the meta code above is indeed working to render my facebook box on the right sidebar correctly?
