I.E COMPATIBILITY ISSUES

Recommended Posts

chisim11

I noticed that no matter what I do to fix my site http://tinyurl.com/3slhflz It looks all messed on I.E 6 or sometimes 7, depending on the computer. Chrome, Safari, Mozilla are fine. However, most people unfortunately, still use the dreadful I.E. The bottom line, I Cannot afford not to include i.e as still most people use it. I have reduced margins, pics size, reduce the lenght,size, and followed the advices of the Pagelines moderators to no avail. Before I chose Platform Pro, I looked into a lot of other themes, of course but decided Platform Pro cause I did not want to have the same thing/theme/layout other people had. One theme that I looked at was wwww.elegant themes.com. And as much as I dislike their cookie-cutter layout for everyone, their themes is compatible with I.E, SAFARI, CHROME AND MOZILLA. While I struggled trying to have my site look decent on I.E, NOTHING will make it look good, (regardless of what I do) So my question is, why is it the pagelines themes are not compatible with I.E? Was thinking about upgrading to Pagelines frameworks but not sure this will resolve this issue? Or is it time for me to move on. Appreciate your response.

Your welcome to try out a demo site at http://demo.pagelines.com We do not support IE6 in any way, ie6 support was completely dropped by the wordpress devs http://wordpress.org/news/2011/07/are-you-ready-for-wordpress-3-2/ The framework was tested in IE8 and IE9 with some basic layout testing for IE7.

From Simon to Simon. Is there any way to notify users when they reach my site that their browser is outdated and in order to see the site correctly, they will have to upgrade to a newer version of I.E or a different browser? at least it will let users know that it is not my site the issue. I know I've seen this done somewhere before. Maybe pagelines can implement something like that?

I don't know if anything of that sort exists, but there may be plugins (searchable here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/) that allow the user's browser to be detected and you can make a note somewhere that the site is best viewed in so-and-so browser.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
