I've just installed the beta of Internet Explorer 9 and discovered some fields in the Article Manager Admin area don't work [:(]

The drop down boxes for Category List in the add article page as an example.

If anyone has any tips on how to fix, please let me know!

Use foxfire browser.

Re: [Kimber] IE9 Warning for AM 2 Users

you can also use google chrome or you can do a revision and revert back to IE8.

Re: [dan_999] IE9 Warning for AM 2 Users

Yeah, I use FF, too. Seems to work really well with AM2. In fact, some of the pages I make only work right in FF. I don't know what's going on with IE anymore. I may have to put a test to check what the visitor is using and fire up a warning to use FF.

Over 50% of internet users use Internet Explorer so ignoring them or suggesting they change to firefox doesnt seem like the right answer! I think we should work with the browser / user and not against them.

Don't forget the new IE is faster and more secure than FF.

Also, Chrome doesnt work with the WYSIWYG editor in Article Manager.

Well, then, I guess you have to pay Interactive Tools for support to get it fixed. :)

Do you get a JavaScript error?
I think the problem is that the menus are XHTML 1.0 Transitional, and not Strict. That's why there are new problems with each new release of Internet Explorer.

Re: [BillG] IE9 Warning for AM 2 Users

The issue was the category list on the create article page not loading.

I've found a workaround for anyone who uses IE9.

Edit the following file:

templates > admin > menus > _wrapper.html

Add the following line of code:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />

directly after the <head> :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
<title>$settings.titlebar$</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="$_weburl$css/ui.css" />



You'll probably notice there are two <head> sections within this document, I think it's only the second one you need to edit but to be safe do it to both. This will force IE9 to work in compatability mode.

Does IE9 have a compatibility mode like 8 does that might make things work?
