Emulate IE7 on IE8
Mod Version: 1.0.0, by PitchouneN64ngc (IB Staff) PitchouneN64ngc is offline
Developer Last Online: Apr 2019 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.7.x Rating: (1 vote - 5.00 average) Installs: 27
Released: 07 Mar 2008 Last Update: Never Downloads: 8
Not Supported Template Edits  

As Internet Explorer 8 Beta 1 is public beta, using the standard mode breaks the layout and functionnalities of vBulletin.

To avoid this and to force your users to use the "Emulate IE7" button without to click on it, you can do this:

In the 'headinclude' template, at the top, add this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And save

You can have more information in this page at the "Versioning and Cross-document Interaction" section.

Edit : this modification isn't more necessary since vBulletin 3.7.0 Release Candidate 1, an option have been added to vBulletin Options by default.

The Emulate IE7 buttone is in the toolbar of IE8 because it forces developers to comply to the latest standards (HTML 5 and CSS 2.1) whereas as IE7 does not.

Please post this in the Quick Tips and Customizations on vBulletin.com and I will approve it for public viewing.

It doesn't work.

At least not for vBulletin. IE8 seems to be breaking every website that I go to.

Didn't work for me at first, either, but it works now. Make sure you add it to the very top.

Thanks works good.

On my site I was getting a display problem with some css and ie 8, this has helped fix it. Looks like ie 8 is going to have its own unique css issues

Installed.

I never knew that, Boofo. So, it's included in the 'headinclude' template by default?
