IE9 Not Being Detected


I’m getting an ‘Outdated Browser’ notification when viewing my site in IE9. Also, my website is being displayed as a mobile site, regardless of browser size.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on this?


OK. I’ve fixed this by doing the following…

Firstly, Preventing compatibility mode in IE9 by adding meta tag first.

meta http-equiv=“X-UA-Compatible” content="IE=edge,chrome=1"

Secondly, removing conditional IF IE8, IF IE9 etc details from the top of head.php.

This was occuring in IE9, whilst hosted on an intranet server.


In my experience IE tends to render intranet pages in Compatibility Mode which is probably why you were seeing issues. Glad you have the problem resolved
