IE8 and Quick Slider V2

Recommended Posts


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.

Hi Gary


In the xp install viewing the site on IE8 is browser compatibility mode on? This has been know to cause issues as it uses the previous version of the IE script, so it would be attempting to view pre IE8 rather than IE8.



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 James


Thanks for the reply.


I'll check this out tomorrow although I am unsure whether this would be the issue as this XP machine is used purely for testing and rarely gets switched on so no settings are messed with. Frankly I would (as its on a second story) give it a flying lesson if I didn't need it for this kind of stuff.


I'll get back to you about it tomorrow buddy.


Thanks again for your help.

      I received our monthly Alexa report, and it pointed out that there were missing alt tags on EVERY page on our site. Upon closer inspection, it looks like the QuickSlider which is used for the scrolling banners at the top of the site doesn't bring in the alt tags. Recently, you made a change to the RevSlider to allow images to have "alt" tags. Can you do that for the QuickSlider too?

      Could really use some help on this one:
      How can I customize the navigation in the quickslider?
      The navigation (previous and next slide) is a font awesome icon which looks like a simple grey box.
      1. I'd like to replace this with custom arrow images?
      2. Is it possible to also add to the navigation: first slide/last slide?

      I am getting pretty tired of things that does not work as it should in DMS. Now it is impossible to have a two column footer with quickslider as one of the items. Take a look here http://pehjaproduction.se/kulingen/
      I have tried three column, two column, no column. nothing works.

      Hi, i'm in the process of building a site for a client, but the the dropdown part of the navbar is going behind the quickslider section. Ive tried removing and re-adding the sections but it doesn't changes anything. I've  never had this problem before when using these sections. 
      The Navbar is in the headder and the quickslider is on the main page. The site is http://tvfrom.net
