Until the IE9 issues are resolved, can Ning just add this at the beginning of the HEAD tag:
<!--[if gte IE 9]>
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">
This will force the browser into "IE 8 Mode".
I thought that might help too, and I wrote something similar in another IE9 thread a few times!
Haven't heard from anyone at Ning as to whether that would be a good solution or not.
i just checked the head of this page and I see they are using code to make it IE7 compatible. My thought was, if they do it here, they might be able to do it for all our sites, until IE9 is supported by Ning.
Any chance we could see this quick fix put into place soon? 9% of the visits to my site in Sept. and Oct. 2011 were with IE9. Seems like a fairly significant chunk of users who aren't able to use my site fully.
I stated that the code needs to be added to the beginning of the HEAD tag. Here is some information from Microsoft backing this up:
The X-UA-Compatible header is not case sensitive; however, it must appear in the header of the webpage (the HEAD section) before all other elements except for the title element and other meta elements.
How long has IE9 been out now and this is still an issue? Come on Ning, this fix should be a priority. At least once a week a user on my site isn't able to do something because they are on IE9.
This MUST be resolved soon.
I currently cannot post pics with IE9 so have downloaded chrome for when I need to do so...it is a pain in the *** but it works!!
