WordPress internet explorer 9 issue

Published on April 23, 2012 by in web

You can avoid most if not all of the IE9/WordPress problems by placing a certain meta tag in the head section of your website. This meta tag instructs the IE9 browser to emulate a more compatible version of Internet Explorer(IE8) so that the website will not break. It’s ok if you don’t understand HTML

  1. Log into WordPress as admin.
  2. Select ‘Editor’ under the ‘Appearance’ button on the left menu.
  3. Click the ‘Header’ link on the right side of the screen.
  4. Copy this line of text:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >
  1. Read through the code in the  text field and where you see a line of text that begins something like ‘<meta….’  place the cursor in front of it and paste the markup text.
  2. Click the ‘Update File’ button.
