DMS Internet Explorer Compatibility Issues

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys


I know this topic has been raised a few times (and I've read though as much as possible), but in my experience DMS 2 simply isn't rendering in versions of Internet Explorer below the latest ver 11. Layouts on IE9 and below are non-existent with unformatted HTML and 10 it also look awful. 


I'm using .less for all my css and I'm wondering if that could be making matters worse - it was my assumption that DMS should compile the less into css server side?


I have tried Modernizr for WordPress plugin and DMS PRO Tools are installed.


If someone could please get back to me on this asap.

ie9 has a 4096 css selector count limit. Your hidden mod only support url isnt even running a PL theme, so i didnt bother testing its css.

so how can we handle a count of 4096 + in IE9? Asa for the second bit sorry I don't follow - I am running DMS 2.0 with a child theme and this is on a development server... I can perhaps PM/email the URL?

the second bit: in your forum profile, there are two url options, one is for your own site to show in your profile, the other is a hidden one that only shows to forum moderators. The site you added there is not a PL theme.


You cant up the limit on IE9 its hardcoded. We have however reduced the amount of CSS that is compiled to about 3300 selectors, it was 4089.


2.0.7 contains the 'fix'

      Hi guys,
      we have noticed that the Elements section is displaying incorrectly under IE11 on Windows 10. See xiting.us. The 3 sections above the footer are Elements sections and they have way too much spacing.
      Is this a known issue?

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.

      A previous thread mentioned problems with Splashup in IE.
      I am having these same issues. Everything is fine in firefox and chrome but IE displays only half the splash up section overlayed across the other content. See screen shots below.
      How it should look is Fire fox Splashup
      How it looks in IE is IE Splashup.
      Site is www.catholiccol.org.nz/live-preview-09-2016
      I have also attached shots of Inspect of each browser. As soon as I click on the ::after and ::before elements in IE the page displays correctly.
      I have tried Splashup on other sites and a local install with no custom css and all other plugins disabled but I still get the same problem.
      Any ideas?

      Site that looks great on other browser, are is rendered wrong on IE: http://foodfunded.us/
      We got multiple complaints.
      The height of sections is way too high. Not sure which section is causing the problem, as they are in containers.
      Or is the size of the images?

      While most of us probably don't use IE, it might prevent professionals from getting client engagements with the PL5 tool, if the browsers don't have coverage.

      Strange issue - see attached screenshot from www.bpetricone.com (cutoff one is IE, the other is Safari on iPad).  Only shows this way in IE11, and all other modern browsers are fine. I removed all extra CSS and all plugins and core files are up to date. 
      What are my options?  I already tried both putting them all in one container or having them separate.
