IE8 issue with background image rendering and news widget

Recommended Posts


HI there, I have a big problem with a site that just went live for a client yesterday and for some reason in IE8 the background is all wonky. I've included screenshots. 

Also, the site is getting hung up for IE8 when loading. It starts off looking good and then gets stuck with what you see. 

The website is http://www.thearcolc.org/


thanks so much for any troubleshooting you can provide.

Hi there,


Checking browserstack (I'm on a mac) I can't see the see layout for IE 8 http://screencast.com/t/EdpNoigQTK


However, check out this post http://www.pagelines.com/forum/topic/25626-ie8-problem-with-random-space/ and try the option at the bottom of the page for the borwser specific css to see if that will help adjust the margins which are appearing.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Hi there,
      My client is a user/website tester and has just informed me that her website is not displaying properly in Internet explorer 9 (and 8).
      The website looks great and has been tested by me on all devices and on the desktop by all the latest browsers ... but not older versions.
      Is there anything known about this and DMS, or is there a fix?
      the website is here..
      Here is a pdf with screen shots and the problems in ie8 & ie9...

      I have an issue with a site not behaving in IE9 and performing badly in IE8. I've been playing around with a copy on a staging server and testing view with Browserstack. I replaced my child theme and activated WP 2013 theme, and IE8/9 worked fine. I then activated the DMS2 Base theme and the not loading properly issue returned. Then I deactivated all the plugins but the problem still persists.   With child theme active: IE8/9/10 - http://imgur.com/a/FzN0O   With DMS2 Base theme active, all plugins deactivated: IE8/9/10 - http://imgur.com/a/3j15x   Temporary staging server URL: http://c95.731.myftpupload.com/   DMS version: Debug is on, cache cleared   The problems with IE8 should be obvious. The CTA is disappearing in IE9 but otherwise is fine. Everything good in IE10 and up.
        Thanks in advance, Michael

      I was using the DMS Pro Tools patch and the Modernizr plugin/acript to get IE8 and IE9 to present DMS based sites correctly. This was working successfully, bar a few elements that I could make some conditional styles for.
      I've just noticed on the last two sites I've updated to the latest version of DMS that this no longer works. I know the Modernizr script hasn't been changed so I assume something with DMS has changed to render these non-functional.
      http:/www.tcii.co.uk/bypass   (this is behind a 'under maintenance' screen right now, you'll need to use the 'bypass' in the URL to get past it)
      Any idea what might be stopping the script from running correctly? Normally it would allow older browsers to use HTML5 and CSS3 tags/selectors, at the moment its as if the script isn't even running/loading...

      Hi Guys
      I have an issue with quick slider (Pagelines Version 2.x) which I have seen a couple of other similar posts talking about, the only difference is it only effects IE8 for me. The sites did work fine in IE8 with sliders performing as expected.
      Now the sliders do not load at all in IE8, if I refresh the page they do then load. I have tried disabling all non Pagelines plugins but this makes no difference. Also the site loads fine using IE11 using developer tools for IE8 but not on an actual XP machine using IE8.
      The sites were fine (there are 2 of them) but now I have this issue. I can only assume a Wordpress update has caused this.
      I know that people will say well the browser/OS are old/unsupported etc but they did work and the sites are for a government agency were there is a large amount of users still using XP and IE8 so I have no choice but to somehow fix the issue.
      Any help would be very much appreciated.
      Thanks in advance.
