IE10 Not following Compatibility Code in Website Head. RRS feed

  • Question

  • My website had been working fine for this it seems. I'm guessing the clients I tested with were running IE9 though and have updated to IE10.

    I have tried the following variations on the code to force my website to be viewed in IE7 compatability mode:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=IE7" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

    None of it works. I can't figure why there's not a CLEAR explanation of what is needed from Microsoft - people are all over the net "guessing" at the right settings and experimenting/googling until they find the right code to put in.

    The code is at the very top of the <head> and viewing the source of the site confirms it's there and should be applied. But it doesn't.

    This is ruining the appearance of my site and probably costing me money - what renders fine in other browsers doesn't in IE.

    WHAT IS THE EXACT CODE I NEED TO MAKE INTERNET EXPLORER WORK PROPERLY???

  • Hi,

    Only one x-ua meta tag is valid.

    f12>Console tab, ... refresh your page to display suppressed error messages and warnings. A warning will be displayed saying that the extra x-ua tags were ignored.

    Post questions about html, css and scriting to the MSDN Web Development forum with a link to your website.

    this forum is for questions about IEAK and GPO for network administrators deploying and administering MSIE on networks.
