    I’m having trouble getting the Anything Slider to work in IE on a website that I am currently developing. It seem to work fine in all other browsers. The site can be accessed here:

    I have validated the doc and the HTML and CSS seems fine so I assume this is a JS conflict. I have 2 different jquery sliders running, however removing the other one doesn’t seem to resolve the problem.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi uc_designs!

    There is an error with the masonry plugin… the file doesn’t exist:

    Thus causing an error with the plugin is called which is most likely why IE stops running scripts.

    I am having a similar issue as uc_designs. I have a slider on our home page that looks great in Safar, Firefox, and Chrome, but not in IE. There is a huge amount of space (equal to the total number of slides if they were vertical, instead of in a slider) and the controls are at the bottom of that space. Help!!! The site is

    Hi Joelc!

    It looks like that page needs a doc type. So at the very top of the page add the following:

    < !DOCTYPE html>

    I added that, and when I did, it broke our Nav Bar (it didn’t load) so I deleted it since that is more important than any slider (which, by the way, works in some versions of IE, like the version on Vista works fine, but the version on XP and 7 don’t)

    Every page needs a doc type in order for IE to not go into quirks mode. Basically it’s a fallback mode that even effects IE9 and disables a lot of IE7-9’s capabilities.

    @smartbuilddesign This thread is actually in reference to the AnythingSlider plugin. I think it would be better if you started a new thread and shared the code you are using. It would be even better if you had a live demo to save the people trying to help you the work of starting from scratch.

    I have a slider issue in the denitto theme in IE. It works fine in Firefox. It worked perfectly fine in IE until sometime last night when i uploaded a new picture. I did an update on the wordpress theme however, the slider was working after I did that a couple of days ago. Any suggestions?

    @mrswalterdeuce Sorry what exactly is the issue? Is something offset, not showing at all or is the slider breaking?

    Hello, Thanks for all the help I’ve seen here, but I’ve tried the above solutions, and my slider is still not working on any of the IE versions. I don’t understand why. My site is Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi @ceez10!

    Well, it looks like you’re loading jQuery, prototype AND scriptaculous. You’ll need to set jQuery into [no conflict mode](, then use the variable you assign to jQuery for everything else. So it should look something like this:

    Hello! I would love if someone could assist me in troubleshooting my AnythingSlider. I just finished a beautiful website that looks great in every browser, except IE. I think it may have happened while I made some modifications in the styles.css or scripts.js for Contact-Form-7, but I’m not sure.

    Please help :)
