I know I've been meaning to upgrade my version, but it's integrated into something else and I haven't had the time.

Anyway, I guess a few weeks ago my Internet Explorer browser was upgraded to version 10 and now my buttons don't work. "New post", "reply", etc. It works fine on any other browser. For me to get it to work in IE10 I need to hit F12 and change the browser mode to "IE 10 compatibility mode".

I've tried adding meta tags right underneath the header tag

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE9">

but no change.

I'm running .net 2.0 on a shared server.

Any ideas?

EmulateIE9 won't put the site into compatibility mode. Change it to EmulateIE7 - Compatibility mode in Internet Explorer is based on the version change between version 7 and 8.

Try
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" />
or
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />


You must also have the "/>" at the end - the closing / is required or the tag is considered malformed because of the DOCTYPE declaration...

I tried the meta's you advised... as well as

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

and no change.

Any other ideas?

The only other thing you can do to force 'quirks mode' is to remove the doctype declaration from the page. But this will make your pages render in 'quirks' mode in all browsers, as well as break HTML and xHTML conformance of the pages.

If it's IE related, I would look into the developer tools in IE (F12) and try to find out what's causing the error in IE. If it's working in other IE versions, and working on other platforms, then you need to concentrate on what script is causing problems in IE and repair that.

After some more research I found what I hope is the answer. My forum is on a shared server so I'm working on convincing the hosting company to run this hotfix.

Here's a link to someone describing the problem with machine and project level fixes.

Hope this helps somebody.

Actually the fix is super simple.

I created a folder called

App_Browsers

on the server and place the definitions for IE browser in the folder.

Here's a link to the zip for the ie.browser file

This is detailed in the link above for project level fix.

Case closed!
