    Text is behaving oddly in latest version of IE8 with hover text overlaying normal text. When the browser is switched to ‘compatibility mode’ then it displays correctly, as indeed it does in Firefox.

    Website under construction here:



    Interesting, does the demo have the same problem?

    Have you modified the theme files at all?

    Best regards,




    i have the same problem.

    IE 8.



    I checked out your demo page:

    and this displayed fine in IE8.

    But I noticed this web page doesn’t show the IE ‘compatibility’ button on the address bar. I had a look at the source code for your website and there at the top was this: <meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″ />

    I’m guessing this tells IE that the page doesn’t work in IE8 and so by default switches on the compatibility mode.

    So, I pinched the code and dropped it into header.php, after <html xmlns=””> and before <head

    So, problem solved – it looks like the Accordian feature is incompatible with IE8 for some reason (and the theme author was aware of it).



    While the <meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=EmulateIE7″ /> placed in header.php (after <head> item) makes Accordion display correctly in IE8 it has the unfortunate side effect of destroying tabled content within the “toggle” function. So, Accordion is unusable for me I’m afraid.

    Is there an updated version of the Accordion code that I can easily replace? I had a quick look through the file structure and couldn’t see anything that leap out and said ‘this is the Accordion function’ so I left files well alone! Or is it something to do with the flash player?

    The site will be going live in a couple of weeks so I’d like to resolve this niggle if possible.



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

    tells the browser to emulate IE 7 instead of the IE 8 rendering engine (also known as compatibility mode).

    You’re running the latest version of the theme, I’ll report this as a possible bug to Kriesi.



    is there a fix for this?

    i am using the accordion slider script and it does not work in IE8

    Hey! As a quick fix I would suggest adding a line of css code to your html head that only targets ie8:

    <![if IE 8]>
    #top .testimonial_slides{

    I will probably release an update to the theme that fixes that during the next weeks but not too sure when I will be able to spare the time.
