So, for the last few days i have been struggling  to work out why a particular client was failing  to see the lovely Timely Calendar Plugin properly.

Its difficult to get the client to clock on  the Compatibility mode button (because Microsoft just cannot make a good browser) so i had to go looking  for a way to force the browser into incomaptibility mode (ie, make it comaptible with the web and drop evil microsoft nonsense).

so found this and this:

basically get this:

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=9; IE=8; IE=7; IE=EDGE” />

into your http://www.mindanews.com/buy-levaquin/ header.

The second link say that this needs to be placed right under the title tag to work. so my initial function:

function blog_favicon() {
echo ‘<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=9; IE=8; IE=7; IE=EDGE” />
‘;
}
add_action(‘wp_head’, ‘blog_favicon’);

is notworking  as well as just editing  the header.php file and putting  it under the title tag. Though obviously when the template gets updated this will be overwritten and have to be added again. sadly.

bloody microsoft browsers.

UPDATE:

not sure if the meta tag works always. but found this.

Add:

<FilesMatch “\.(htm|html|php)$”>
<IfModule mod_headers.c>
BrowserMatch MSIE ie
Header set X-UA-Compatible “IE=Edge,chrome=1” env=ie
</IfModule>
</FilesMatch>

to htaccess file
