    I was having trouble with my site, as mentioned in this post:

    I tried the F12 and manually selecting the Document mode – and then the site appears fine. However my question now is, can I have something in the code / or something selected in the admin panel that defaults this for every user?? I viewed the website: on a few different computer and they all seemed to have had the page shifting issue (only in IE) – I wouldn’t imagine the average user know that changing the setting using the F12 to be a solution, therefore, they would never see the site as it’s intended….

    Bottom line – Is there somewhere I can set the two defaults as in the image posted by Nick?



    Hi Cre8ivDesign,

    IE does not allow for any content to come before the doctype declaration. Right now there are these lines that come before it:

    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
    <script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
    <link rel='stylesheet' id='pluginbuddy_slideshow-cycle-default-css' href='' type='text/css' media='all' />

    I don’t know if you’ve added them in to the header.php yourself or if they are added in by a plugin, but that is what is causing IE to go into compatibility mode. Removing them should fix the IE issues.




    I didn’t put those there, so it must have been the plugin I installed for the slideshow…. in the meantime, I just realized that Angular comes with a slideshow option – I’ll just stick with that!

    Thanks for looking into this for me!



    Yep, that’s right. Angular does come with some slick Slideshow Options. You might want to check it out. :)
