Website not displayed correctly in IE9
« on: September 03, 2012, 13:04:38 pm »
Dear fellow Virtuemart users,

I have recently for the first time opened my website using IE9, and realised that the website is not displayed correctly. I have already fixed these problems for other versions of Internet Explorer (see the code below). The website works properly when I manually activate the compatibility view. Therefore, it looks as if IE9 does not show the website in IE7 mode, however I am not sure and I don't know how to solve this problem.

I am using Joomla 1.5.22, VirtueMart 1.1.8 stable and ja_larix 1.4. I hope the screenshot is helpful.

Thank you in advance for your comments and suggestions!

That is an old template, but JoomlArt did release an updated version, 1.4.3 in September 2011 so maybe you need to get that update, http://www.joomlart.com/joomla/templates/ja-larix

Note that the Joomla version you are using has known critical security issues, so you should consider updating at least to J1.5.26    http://forum.virtuemart.net/index.php?topic=106954.0

Thank you for your quick reply. As my website is for charity, there is unfortunately no budget for updating the stylesheet, so I'll have to live with this little problem.

And I didn't realise that there were newer versions of Joomla. I've updated it now, and will keep an eye on it. Thanks!
