Some IE8 Issues

  • # February 27, 2013 at 12:45 pm

    Hi everyone,

    I am nearly done creating a base WordPress theme for my development using SASS, but I am having some stupid trouble with IE8. Anyone know why the sidebar in the header is not flush to the top right and why the image thumbnails are not floated left/lose their borders?

    Again, this is for IE8. I have probably stared at this for too long so I am just running in circles at a simple fix(?)

    Thanks in advance!

    Can’t help unless we see some actual code I’m afraid.

    Wow, I forgot to give the link, sorry….:

    It’s because you are using HTML5 tags such as HGROUP and ARTICLE that are unknown to IE8.

    You should include HTML5shiv or Modernizr to ensure that IE8 will be able to handle those relatively new tags.
