Hi there, I am just wondering if anybody could help with a little problem I have with IE9 incorrectly rendering my website. historyofkilnamona.org is the site.
As far as I can tell, the site loads fine in Opera, FF, Safari, Chrome etc. but IE9 is a problem. <=IE8 are all fine also. I created the site using XHTML and CSS (I don't know JS). I got a free script for a dropdown menu called p7exp and it is this that does not render properly in IE9.
I am wondering if there is a way of redirecting IE 9 or above users to IE8 as it works fine in the older browser.
Ummm...I have IE9 on my machine. I don't have IE8.
So, even if it WAS possible to tell a web page to use IE8 instead of IE9, how could it work on my computer where IE8 doesn't even exist?
In any case, there is no way to do what you want. Even if a user had both browsers installed on his computer, it's no easier to jump from IE9 to IE8 than it is to jump from IE9 to Chrome or IE9 to Firefox. They are separate *PROGRAMS*. It would be like you are playing a game of Halo and all of a sudden you jump to MS Word.

There is absolutely no need to redirect from IE 9 to IE 8, even if it was just remotely feasible. IE 9 is better than IE 8 in all aspects (I’d think) and if there is something wrong in the rendering it’s probably bad code, not the browser’s fault. There is definitely a solution for it. Your request is like putting the cart before the horse, figuratively speaking.
Thanks mate. Ya, I am seeing a few CSS dropdown menus which should make things much easier for me.
