Support » Fixing WordPress » Site doesn't work in IE8

  • Resolved Lindalin83



    My site validates just fine in W3C, but it doesn’t work at all in IE8 and below. The background shows up, but not the content.

    I have built a child theme for the Adapt Theme.

    Can someone help me to find out what the problem is?

  • Revert to Twenty Twelve theme temporarily and see if your site works on IE8.

    Yes, it works when I switch to Twenty Twelve, and when I switch back to my theme it doesn’t work . again.

    That shows it is a problem with your theme. You need to contact the theme developer/ vendor as we do not support themes that are not from WordPress repository. Alternatively you may use a theme from here:

    But the thing is that I have built another child theme on the Adapt Theme – and that site doesn’t have the same issue. So it must have something to do with my child theme… But I can’t find the problem.

    Revert to the parent theme and see if it works. If it does, that means there is something wrong with the child theme.

    I deleted the parent theme, and downloaded it again – now it works! Thanks, must have done something in parent files…

    Glad that you could solve the issue 🙂
