Make your board work better with IE8/IE9!

Post by Guest on June 21st 2011, 8:43 pm

If you have a PunBB or phpBB2 board, here is a tip that will make your board work better with IE8 and IE9. For some unknown reason, you will find the following at the top of the overall_header template:

<!-- BEGIN meta_emulate_ie7 -->
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
<!-- END meta_emulate_ie7 -->
What this marvelous piece of code does is tell IE8 and IE9 that they should render the page in IE7 Quirks Mode. That's right...on pages where this is activated, it is causing the page to have compatibility problems!

I suggest that you remove this marvelous piece of code. Very Happy

For those using phpBB3 and IPB2/Invision boards, one can hope the good folks at eToxic see the errors in their ways, and get rid of this marvelous piece of code in the master template. In the meantime, those using IE8 and IE9 can press F12 to access the Developer Tools, then change the document mode to the browser's native document mode (IE8 or IE9 standards). It's a pain, but it's better than the alternative.
