    I am nearly finished with a huge site build and have discovered multiple issues in IE 8. The layout is broken, the styles are not appearing correctly, buttons don’t appear right, etc. Can you please help? I did already try one fix of adding slashes to lines 22 and 24 of the register plugins php file, but that didnt seem to help. I am desperate. please..



    Can you give us a link to your website?




    of course:


    thank you.


    I tested it with the IE8 emulator: http://www.screenr.com/4yHH and I didn’t notice any broken layouts. The styles/buttons, etc. look a bit different but that’s expected and unfortunately not fixable because IE8 does not support modern css3 attributes like border-radius, css gradients, box-shadow, rgba, etc.

    Btw – please replace:

    <mailto: (Email address hidden if logged out) > (Email address hidden if logged out) </a>


    <a href="mailto: (Email address hidden if logged out) "> (Email address hidden if logged out) </a>


    hmmm – did you REALLY check ie8 compatibility? There’s a lot of issues:

    – icon-boxes are not displayed correctly (the circle behind the icon does not show up)

    – sometimes icons are not displayed (e.g. in boxes)

    – buttons loose their color


    I know that ie8 is really bad regarding css but unfortunately still a lot of companies run windows xp and ie8……



    Like Dude said IE8 doesn’t support css properties like background-color, gradients, box-shadows, css animation etc.

    Please add this on your custom.css or Quick CSS to fix elements without background colors.

    .alternate_color, main_color {
    background: red;

    Change the color value.

    To fix the button, please use this

    .alternate_color .avia-color-theme-color-subtle {
    background: #122638;
    color: white;
