Add Compatibility View to Enterprise Mode Site List (EMSL) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a web application which is not Edge compatible & when launched in IE11 displays badly formatted and skewed text. I've found manually adding the site URL to Compatibility View Settings resolved the messy text issue and I know through use of EMSL we can force sites to open in IE11 even when attempting to browse with Edge.

    I need to have it set so that the site URL is automatically applied to all users in Compatibility View by default so that they don't have to manually add it themselves. My understanding is that Compatibility View is an emulation of legacy IE8 settings. I know that the EMSL is recognising our site correctly because it forces opening in Edge - so we know its being picked up,  but I've tried setting the URL in an EMSL to IE7 & IE8 compatibility mode, but the text issue still persists.

    Can someone please help with automatically applying Compatibility View for users for this site? Below is an example of what I've tried. The website is in the format "hostservername:portnumber"; I've tried just the host server name without the port just in case and it makes no difference. Below is my .xml code for EMSL - I've tried both "IE8" & "IE8Enterprise" but it makes no difference:

    <site-list version="1"> 




        <date-created>01/01/2017 01:01:01</date-created> 


      <site url="hostservername:port"> 

        <compat-mode>IE8Enterprise</compat-mode>  *Also tried IE8 on its own but makes no difference*
