Just add manually as first line after the <head> tag in your template index.php
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

Be carefull doing this it switches your browser to comapability view and can cause your site to display incorrectly. I wish somthing would be done about these issues, Its a pain relying on people having to use fire fox to display a joomla site correctly. :(

The only good solution is to create specific css for ie8 with a conditional statement.

Yeh that's easier said than done if you know what you are talkng about. I have just spent alot of money building my site with joomla and sobi only to find out when im 98% complete that it does not work correctly in IE8 this really made me mad. Now windows 7 is released it default with IE8 and 80% of users use IE8 ive just thrown my money down the toilet.

That means about as much to me as php code does :( All I know is that when someone goes to edit an advertisement they have paid for on my site that DONT work correctly it does not show the whole edit page.

Is it s sobi problem they say no
Is it a Joomla problem they say no
Is it an IE problem every 1 here says yes

It really annoys me when microsoft wants to change something the whole world has to follow, yes im pissed and why shouldent I be........ >:(

hello to all,

i use this plugin on my two sites without any problem

http://www.joomtorial.com/downloads/plu ... patibility

unzip the package because there are plugins for both joomla versions.

This plugin just adds the code I pasted above when loading the template.

The conditional may be necessary in your template to load the correct CSS.
For example a specific IE7 css if the CSS are IE8 aware, or the reverse.

We have changed such a conditional in ja_purity in the next version of Joomla, 1.5.15, because it was breaking display in IE8

Was
Code:
<!--[if gte IE 7.0]>
<style type="text/css">
.clearfix {display: inline-block;}
</style>
<![endif]-->

changed to
Code:
<!--[if IE 7.0]>
<style type="text/css">
.clearfix {display: inline-block;}
</style>
<![endif]-->

It's sad, but this actually doesn't help my website work right. When an IE8 a user clicks "compatibility view" it works just fine, but not if I ad any of these extra scripts or plugins. This is really killing my traffic.
