Support » Theme: Pilot Fish » Theme not working in IE (severely broken)

  • Resolved kevin_vi


    Hi, our site ( is a mess when viewed in IE (7, 8) but okay in Firefox and Chrome.

    We tried the suggested fixes using css3 media queries for IE as well as the HTML5 Shiv, etc, but neither seemed to be the issue.

    Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

    Specifically, this seems to be an issue with the NAVIGATION.

  • We think we found a partial solution – when comparing apples to apples with the themes demo, we found the demo had some additional / updated media query statements that were not in the theme.

    After making our style sheet the same the demo’s, it seems to work okay in IE 8, 7 is still a mess (most content does not show, but the nav does).

    I’d recommend fixing the media queries in the theme and patching / supplying an update because it’s apparent this is not just an isolated issue (based upon other posts we have read).

    Also, if you could figure out the issues with IE 7 media inquiries, that would be great too!

    Media Queries breaks in IE8 and below.

    Try this plugin

    Thanks, I tried that plugin, it fixed issues with IE 8 – but IE 7 was still a no go – we’ve decided to move on and just not support IE 7 as the time wasted on trying to get it to work was costing us more than we could have purchased a theme for!

    Otherwise, this theme is very good.


    Note: I’m marking this resolved, because I’m moving on without it being fixed – however, there is still some serious issue with IE 7 and this theme.
