Hi-

I absolutely love your Wicker product- especially when viewing in the most up to date browsers.  But I started testing the site on BrowserStack's browser tests, I see a number of issues with the layout and formatting.  

 

Does Wicker support IE 8?

 

Here's the site: http://owens.prodentitedev.com/

 

Here's the screenshot:

IE, especially IE8 is a dying browser. The decision remains whether to invest time to fix things for a browser that wont be around any longer in another year, vs concentrating on forward thinking browsers. The more time I spent fixing junk on browsers that are old, the less time I have to dedicate the current and future projects.

Yeah dont get me wrong IE is everywhere, still. I do have browserstack, and I do try to fix the obnoxious things when they pop up. I'll at least take a look at Wicker and see if we can do anything.

Keep in mind that (despite government recommendations and guidance) a vast number of public sector environments in the UK are still using IE6 (it is the default in the NHS) let alone seeing IE8 as old.

lol IE6. We're talking .2%, of ALL IE traffic.

      This is the first time using Wicker on DMS.  I bought Wicker a long time ago on Framework.  I downloaded the zip file from launchpad and tried to install it as a plugin.  It failed, so I uploaded and extracted it to the 'sections' on my server.  Seemed like things went well, but when I drag and dropped it, it wasn't full width.  Weird.  The site's layout display is set to Full Width.  Here is a screenshot of what it looks like.  What am I doing wrong?  Thanks.

      Hello. I purchased Wicker tonight and I am struggling why when I enable hero mode the text title and place holder graphic appear in the center of the pattern overlay area (as it should) but when I turn on the preview mode in DMS the placeholder image and the web text jump all the way to the top of the web page. Its very puzzling. Can you please advise?

      Hi Nick,
       
      I tried wicker for the first time, dragged and dropped and tried to set up. Then I got the below error.
       
      "Fatal error: Using $this when not in object context in /home/content/15/11570015/html/wp-content/plugins/wicker/sections/wicker/section.php on line 590"

      Hi there! I recently purchased Wicker and have used it on one site. Loving it! I noticed n the new DMS store that it I have to repurchase it. Is that correct? As a very loyal Pagelines user, I was hoping that past purchases would transfer to the DMS.
