    Are you positive this is an issue in IE8/IE9, and not IE7? Possibly you’ve accidentally turned on compatibility mode, putting your IE browser into a simulated IE7? What you’re showing in your screenshot doesn’t make sense for IE8/9 because they both support CSS content, which IE7 does not. This is how the theme places the background images along the side of the boxed layout.

    Here’s what the theme looks like in IE8:

    And IE9:

    The theme is not compatible with IE7.



    I’m using IE 8 at default. Your theme works well on the External Server .

    example Beyondhosting Godaddy hostng

    But I must use your theme on my local Server with centos and Apache.

    It have a problem on my local server.

    Can you suggest me what do I need to install or config more on my local server?
    example Config php , Config Apache or Config centos.
    To make an impression look like External Server.


    This is PHP info in my local server that have a problem.


    This is a comparison between the Server.

    I don’t see how it can be anything to do with your PHP configuration. That honestly just can’t be possible and doesn’t make sense in this case because your screenshot clearly shows an issue with the background images not displaying, which would be a client-side CSS issue. — And above you said this doesn’t happen in Firefox and Chrome, which emphasizes even more that it can’t be a server issue. For example, theoretically if you had some kind server permissions issue or something with the images, they wouldn’t display in any web browser.

    I would take a closer look at your actual IE8 setup. It has to be something there. Do some research on how compatibility mode works in IE8. It’s possible at some point within your IE8 settings, you inadvertently set your local address to display IE7, maybe you were testing another site or something at some point on this local IP address. The screenshot you’re showing is exactly what you will see if you pull up the theme in IE7; I honestly don’t think that is a coincidence.


    Try doing this in IE. First, in the menu bar at the top of the browser go to:

    Tools > Compatability View settings

    Check to see if ‘Display intranet sites in Compatibility View’ is checked

    Since you’re using a internal server in the 10.x.x.x space IE might be configured to display it in Compatibility View.


    Thank you, puzzlehead .

    It ‘s works!!

    Just add

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

    under <head>

    Thank you.

    @centz If you have to do this on your site, it means you have it set somewhere else for the most modern version of IE not to be used.


    @Jason Bobich

    I have only one way to get website display correctly.
