Thanks, Jonathan. I passed this on to their IT guy. Problem is, the error doesn’t occur at all with the theme demo, only on my beta site-
I just want to implement the theme.-I’m really hoping to have this fixed w/in the next day or so—the only files I changed were adding some boxes to the index page (but tested with the original index page and the error still occurred) and removing the comments sections on the pages.
This is the error message:
It happens on pages, randomly. Sometimes the pages work, sometimes they don’t.
No. That’s still in tact. Thanks for the lead, though.
<!DOCTYPE html> <!--[if IE 7]> <html id="ie7" <?php language_attributes(); ?>> <![endif]--> <!--[if IE 8]> <html id="ie8" <?php language_attributes(); ?>> <![endif]--> <!--[if !(IE 7) | !(IE ]><!--> <html <?php language_attributes(); ?>> <!--<![endif]--><head> <?php dt_get_google_fonts( of_get_option( 'fonts-list' ), dt_get_web_font_effect() ); ?> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html" /> <meta charset="<?php bloginfo( 'charset' ); ?>" />
btw, it has something to do with the mods that I did,bc same error is not occuring on demo for Nimble. Message me for details as needed.
Can someone help me troubleshoot what is causing error with showing on IE8? Random pages are not appearing on IE8.
I’m using Nimble theme, only made minor mods.
Give me price to fix, really need this asap.

I’ve tried to get the whole thing sourced out, in fact, this project started out with me paying someone to code a custom theme from a PSD I created. It was horrible. Then I just went ahead and styled and existing theme (something I’ve literally had very little trouble doing in the 6.5 years I’ve done this full time). I’m all for outsourcing to specialist, but I’ve had bad experiences in the past.In response to:
If a theme is advertised as being IE8 compatible you should contact the author for them to fix it…. if it does work with IE8 as provided then changes you made must of broken it possibly.
Thats assuming there hasn’t been any modification that would cause it to break in IE8 via customization(which authors arent required to support).On that note you took the client if your contract doesn’t state anything about browser support fix it and move on, if you aren’t capable of fixing it hire some to fix it. In all honesty you may want to picking up some freelance contacts that you can outsource things to if you aren’t capable of making the changes yourself.
Thanks ya’ll. Disclaimer—I’m a designer, not a coder. Hence, why I chose a theme that stated it was IE8 compatible so I wouldn’t have to worry about it. Any of you all capable of troubleshooting for me and adding and css required? Email me with rates. email@example.com Thanks!
-The theme I used was Nimble: http://themeforest.net/item/nimble-multipurpose-retina-ready-wordpress-theme/3009347
Sometimes it’s best to just cut your losses and move onto something new Although saying that, requesting IE8 compatibility is not that unreasonable. But if it’s not in the contract then you don’t need to do it.
Thanks for the input. I agree. If this weren’t A) a very important relationship to me (we’ve known each other for a long time and they are also a client of my husbands in another capacity). and There is large sum of money due for the balance, which frankly, I’ve already earned and don’t just want to charge off.
Good morning! Wanted some other designer/developer feedback on my issue.
Been working on a long-drawn out website where it took a year for the client to get their content together (they wouldn’t outsource it).
Now that we’re done, we were going to test it and found that the theme used doesn’t work on IE8. I understand that this is an old browser, but the agency that is my client is large, not up to date, and it’s not financially feasible for them to re-license all of their computers (they’re using a version of Windows that won’t allow for them to update to IE9 or 10).
I didn’t specify backwards compatibility in my contract.
Now we have a meeting to discuss: 1. What exactly will overhauling the website entail?
2. Cost/Considerations of Overhauling the Website
a. How long will it take?
b. What tech support, if any will be needed from GCCSA?
3. Compatibility with Internet Explorer 8
a. How will that effect compatibility with Explorer 9 and 10? Or other browsers?
b. What additional considerations must be assessed?
4. What are the other feasible options, if any?
What would you do in this situation.
I want help creating a menu (three menus, actually) that look like this: http://www.houmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Screen-shot-2012-10-30-at-1.04.20-PM.png found here http://www.blueridgectc.edu/ They must be controlled by wp custom menus, please no additional plugins.
Will be implemented here: http://betagccsa.houmedia.com —Using the Nimble theme purchased here.
Will pay via pay pal once work is completed.
Please email me with how much you’d charge and turnaround.
