I found a solution for my site and it seems to work fine. Edit your html template as shown below. Remove the gte from the top of the html exactly as below.

<!--[if gte IE 7.0]>

change to-

<!--[if IE 7.0]>

and it should render fine in ie8

I tried the fix suggested by Support-Freak, but IE8 is still rendering incorrectly.

Here's the site: http://www.nevadarighttolife.org/

Any suggestions?

This should work fine but if the user sets IE8 to compatibility mode then they'll match as IE7 even though IE8 is better. I added the following to my fix in ja_templatetools.php starting at line 223...
Code:
        else if ( strpos($agent, 'MSIE') && !preg_match('/opera/i',$agent) && !preg_match('/trident\/(4\.[0-9])/i',$agent))
        {
             $msie='/msie\s(7\.[0-9]).*(win)/i';
                if (preg_match($msie,$agent)) $browser = 'IE7';
                else $browser = 'IE6';
        }
        else if ( preg_match('/trident\/(4\.[0-9])/i',$agent) )
        {
            $browser = 'IE8';
        } 


I'm scouring the template code to see if there are any other issues with IE8... I'll post em as I find them

Support-Freak,
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have been sweating buckets since i upgraded to IE8 last night and all my websites were broken. All my sites have a phpbb forum in an iframe wrapper inside Joomla 1.5 with JA Purity template. When viewed with IE8, the iframe wrapper appears about a quater of the width of the page, even though the iframe wrapper width is set to 100%. The forums were un-readable in IE8. Now its fixed!

This fix was very quick and it works perfect. Just to clarify for other people reading this, You edit;
yourdomain.com/templates/ja_purity/index.php

I was searching Google for Bill Gate's email address so i could give him a peice of my mind with his new security checks in IE8 :-\

Thanks for the fix guys! ;)

John.

Unfortunateley the described fix created problems for my JCE Editor 1.5 when using IE7. When editing an article the page had errors and the article could not be saved.

Thanks a lot. I can't view my site in IE6 and IE7. I can't view any templates. I have found out that I have a global configuration problem. I renamed the file htaccess and the icon appeared suddently. I think that I have to make some changes on this file. I am working on it now. Please help me if you find the answer. Thanks a lot.

Hello. I really think that the problem is in the .htaccess file. I can't view my site neither in the localhost nor in the web server (http://graficosur.com). I think that I have to make a change to one of the comments in that file. I also think that the problem is related to Apache modSecurity settings. Please help me. This is the contents of the htaccess.htaccess file:

Hello. I renamed the "htaccess.htaccess" file to ".htaccess" and my site can be viewed in Mozilla Firefox, but it still can't be viewed on Internet 5, 6 and 7. By the way, I am using Reactor Server on my localhost. Thanks. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

Hello. After I re-installed Joomla again, I had the same problem. The problem was that I was breaking a simple rule: not to paste formatted text. Now everything is fine. Thanks.

Hello Jwwicks,

I would prefer adding your code to fix the problem, in case our viewers are still using IE7, but it didn't work for me. I tried adding it as you suggested at line 445 (my code is double spaced, so it wouldn't start at line 223). I tried editing the current code at line 445 to look like your code. I tried adding portions of your code to the current code at line 445. None of these ways worked for me. Any ideas?

Until then, I'm using the

change to-

<!--[if IE 7.0]>

Thanks!!!
Ben

My fix to the code isn't really stand alone, it's meant to work in conjunction with the IE Conditional Comments (CC). It basically avoids the problem when you're in IE8 and you set it to compatibility mode.

If the site works in IE8 *after* you click the "compatibility mode" icon (it looks like a page ripped in half, and appears to the right of the address bar), then you can just force your template to automatically put IE8 into compatibility mode:

Put this line in the head section of the template's index.php file:
Code:
 
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"/>

More details here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc817570.aspx

Can anyone point me to a post that explains why this issue even exists? What does IE8 have that Firefox, Chrome, etc. does not? Are they writing new "standards" in Redmond again?

I am working on a site that uses Rocket Theme's Afterburner template, and the template won't even load in Internet Explorer 8 without going into this so-called compatibility mode.

Hi,
Everyone's saying "removing GTE from index.php" works.

I'm using keepitsimple template but I can't find the line where I can remove the "gte" in the index.php file.

Similarly, I can't find the line under index.php of joomla directory.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I have solved by using this plugin.
Link : http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... 23/details.

And also we can use following code to fix the IE8 issue.
This tag needs to be first in the <head> (before any css):

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />

Please try.

Thanks and regards

Sorry, not I. Wish I could. I looked at the source code for the site you linked above, and it may provide a clue:

What is all that code starting at line 106? It starts like this:
Code:
<p><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:TrackMoves /> <w:TrackFormatting /> <w:PunctuationKerning /> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas /> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> ... etc. etc. etc.

You will notice that it is at this point your page stops rendering in IE8. I think the problem lies right there.
