View Full Version : IE8 and Wordpress Send button

12-29-2011, 08:43 PM

I have created a site and on all browser accept ie8 and below my send button does not work on a wordpress registration form. It works in Safari, Chrome, FF mac and pc, ie9 etc..

I have added the following to the header.php

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8;FF=3;OtherUA=4">


The send button then works in compatible mode but no user understands how to switch this on and off.

Any ideas on how to fix this? other then banning IE of all machines...

Just to close this one off. It was because IE8 could not understand the code of the Button tags so I had to put something between them like an img or text.
