Support » Plugin: WordPress Slider Block Gutenslider » Images not appearing on Internet Explorer

  • Resolved Jon Schroeder


    Images are not appearing on Internet Explorer only – you can see this in two places on (top fullwidth section of the home page, bottom section on the about us page).

    Looks totally fine on most other browsers. Thanks so much in advance for taking a quick look; you’ve done fantastic work on this plugin.

    Hey @jonschr,

    we are sorry to tell you, that gutenslider does currently not work with ie11. Gutenslider depends on css variables and on the object-fit-property which are both not supported by Internet Explorer 11 and below.

    If there are more users requesting a compatibility to ie11 we will however of course include it in one of the upcoming releases.

    If you are a techy person, there are polyfills for the both not supported values, you can look here and include them in your theme if you need.

    Thanks, @eedee! Appreciate you pointing me toward these polyfills; I’ll try those in the theme. Great work with the plugin!

    Just as an FYI, we did implement these two polyfills, but with no effect. Unfortunately, it looks like there are probably other features as well. Obviously, that sort of thing goes waaaay beyond any support I’d expect, so please feel free to close this ticket. Just wanted to let you know that it’s probably a bit more involved than just these polyfills to address this.

    One thing we’ve done in the past to address this sort of thing is to use background images rather than image tags. IE11, I believe, would support background-size: cover without issue. So, if you ever do want to introduce an “IE compatibility mode,” that’s probably a simpler way (just change the markup of the background container div to use background images rather than foreground images).

    For my own needs, if the client decides this is a necessary feature, I’ll probably just build a custom ACF block to address this. Thanks again for your help!

    How much time do you have @jonschr, we are considering adding an ie11 compatibility with background-images like you described.
