Fix Your Website to Work with IE8

Schrock Innovations Web Development Team has been busy the past few days testing our clients’ website to make certain they will display properly in IE8.  In the coming weeks, IE 8 will be pushed to every Windows XP and Vista user through Windows Update.

If your website is not compliant, it could look awful in the new browser, and your company’s image could be slighted in the eyes of millions of web surfers world-wide (IE is still the most widely used browser by far).

So what do you need to do to see if your website is impacted?  Follow these steps below to check your website and then take steps to correct the problem.

Step 1.  Test Your Website:

Download and install IE 8 to your computer.  You can locate the version that is right for you on the Internet Explorer website.

Step 2.  Open Your Website With IE8

Using IE8, navigate to your website.  If the site appears to display normally, you should be fine.  If your website’s elements don’t line up properly, you should try using IE in compatibility mode to see if the problem is resolved.

You might have noticed a new icon just at the end of the address bar that looks like a piece of paper torn in half.

Click on the icon to activate compatibility mode.  If your website now displays properly, you need to have your website tweaked to work normally in IE8.

Step 3.  Call Schrock Innovations 866-496-8772

Schrock Innovations is one of Nebraska’s leading web development companies.  We understand that small businesses did not budget for an unexpected website tweak, and we are doing what we can to help.

    I personally feel that everybody should go over to Firefox if they desire toys, and to Chrome if they desire speed, and not worry about IE too much, whether it be IE6, IE7 or IE8…..
