Simple Nivo Slider
Top Reason Nivo Slider won't work in IE8 and below.. (7 posts)

    Hi, Simple Nivoslider works great in IE 9 and others. However, doesn't show-up in IE8.

    I've messed around with calling jquery.nivo.slider in the header, but haven't had luck getting it to work. I did notice that the nivo slider packages are older than the newest release. Not sure in this case it would be helpful to update (Don't want to break what is not broken).

    I have searched the internet and noticed there is a diverse amount of responses to this subject. I am wondering if anyone can suggest a TOP 5 list why Nivo Slider might work on everything but IE 8.

    Yeah. Let me know if you find anything. Haven't been able to fix it for IE8 and below yet. Although, I have tried all the header stuff that is pretty much commented on all over the place.

    May just try and code Nivo Slider manually into the theme. Maybe that will be better. I do like the plugin as it is pretty straight forward if I could get it to work for IE.

    Also, it doesn;t seem to work at all in wordpress 3.3.1 any one else experienced this?

    I actually DID get this to work by simply defining the height and width of the slider :)

    Though I haven't upgraded this particular site to 3.3.1 yet because of a server issue...(it's on 3.3)

    LOL. The height thing worked for me. I did read that awhile back on a forum and was like, it can't be that simple. So, was too focused on looking for some other issue. Thanks!!

    Tested on latest version on WordPress and works for me. If it doesn't show-up at all, most likely Jquery is not being called correctly in the header, or possibly loading two versions at the same time.

    I use this in my header: <?php wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); ?> .
