[resolved] Like buttons not showing in IE8 (works in Firefox) (3 posts)

    I just noticed that when using IE8, my site isn't displaying any Like buttons (for posts they are usually posted at the end of posts). In Firefox, things are working correctly, as usual. I've checked some of the things I read fixed other problems, like wp_footer() not being properly used, etc, but as far as I can tell, my code is good.

    My site is: TrendyInk

    *I've searched here for an answer to my problem, but haven't found an answer that worked for me, so I decided to post and ask.

    Thanks in advance,

    In your theme, probably in the header.php, you'll find an <html> tag at the top somewhere. It might look like <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

    You need to add the language_attributes() function call to that, so that SFC can add the required bits to the HTML tag for older browsers.

    For example:

    <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>>


    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>>

    This may or may not work. IE is weird at times.

    Very nice work (once again!) Otto.

    You got a million answers for a million questions.

    Thanks for taking the time.
