Description (last modified by helenyhou)

I encountered some problems in older Internet Explorer versions:

1) There is missing "Browse" button when you try to upload new media (using Browser uploader). IE7/8, see attached screenshot.

2) Third column in Welcome panel is moved to another row in IE7, see attached screenshot.

Change History (16)

IE 7 and IE 8 aren't fully supported. They're going to have problems (which is why you get an alert box telling you that the browser is old in the main admin screen). I suspect this is a wontfix if it's not present in IE 9.

OK, I agree with second point, but IE8 is supported now and it is not possible to upload media using Browser uploader which can be real problem for some users...

Could not reproduce either issue using IE8 and r19633

I can't reproduce either, in IE7 or 8. Using r19732.

@pavelevap, are you using something like IETester? Because if you are, then it has issues rendering input type="file" tags which are not present in real IE7/8 browsers.

I can reproduce the second issue in "real" IE 7. Would like to see if we can fix this without much hacking.

As for the first issue, here's what I see in IE 7/8: 19687.add-new-media.png.

comment:8 @Ipstenu3 years ago

It works fine for me on Win XP and IE 8.

solarissmoke: My friend originally showed it to me, I am not sure if it was exactly IETester, but probably it was any tool. I can not reproduce this missing button on my VirtualPC now. I also tried IETester and button is really missing here, interesting... Thank you very much for this hint! So first point is probably invalid.

  • Component changed from General to UI

Since the second issue only seems to appear in IE 7, which is going to be deprecated (#18199), not sure if it's actually worth fixing. IE 8 shows Welcome panel properly.
