    Hi guys,

    I’m having some trouble with a site I’m developing. If I include jQuery, it causes the page to not render in IE8:

    Any ideas? If I remove jQuery, the page renders (but obviously my scripts relying on it don’t work). What could be the issue with including it?

    Many thanks


    Which version of Jquery.

    Higher than 2.0 and IE8 isn’t supported…you have to use the 1.9x branch..I think.

    You asked for it, you got it: jQuery 2.0 has arrived!

    As promised, this version leaves behind the older Internet Explorer 6, 7, and 8 browsers. In return it is smaller, faster, and can be used in JavaScript environments where the code needed for old-IE compatibility often causes problems of its own. But don’t worry, the jQuery team still supports the 1.x branch which does run on IE 6/7/8. You can (and should) continue to use jQuery 1.9 (and the upcoming 1.10) on web sites that need to accommodate older browsers.


    I’m using the latest version that supports IE8 (1.11.2). I’ve used jQuery many times successfully with IE8, that’s why I’m so baffled it’s not working. I’ve even tried including the jquery library locally instead of using the google cdn version, but it made no difference.


    Never mind this answer…
