IE incompatibility notes

Quick post for the day. We had an issue where the site was rendering great in IE and Chrome locally, but when we promoted it out – kablooey! How to fix?

Checking the client browser mode (and using IE’s dev tools) showed that our default browser mode settings were to IE7. (Not sure why this was, but it’s part of our awesome standard config evidently). Edge setting (or the most recent, a la Chrome) would be more correct. So, in the header, try this tag:

<meta http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” content=”IE=edge”>
