IE8 layout problems

Postby pauly87 » Mon Apr 19, 2010 7:06 pm

i've just set up my zencart and i'm happy with the layout in IE7 but checked the site on my parents computer which is running IE8 and the layout is all over the shop.

i've searched the net and found lots of people with the same problem but no solution. anybody had this problem/sorted it out?

cheers paul

If it works okay in IE7 then try forcing the the site to run in IE8 compatibility mode.

To do this locate the file /includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE_FOLDER/common/html_header.php and add the following meta tag

Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

Coming in late on this but what if the problem is the opposite, that the site looks fine in IE8 but not in IE7? Would you change the 7 to an 8 in the code and where exactly in the file would you put the code?
