    I've created a wordpress site and a couple of the plugins don't work on IE.

    I've heard this is a general issue with IE7, do you normally find a workaround or leave it?

    if personal site: forget about it,
    if client site: try to fix it or be cocky and put a detect message that tell them to update their browser if they want to enjoy the "new internet"

    • actually you could do a detect in both situation

    I have a virtual machine on VMware with Windows XP. It has one snapshot with IE7 and another with IE8.

    I make them work, but soon I'm going to up the threshold to IE8.

    Supporting IE7 is what keeps it alive. Google's rule is to support two recent major versions of a browser, which would limit IE to 9 and 10. It is a very healthy approach.

    Here's the fun part: IE10 is already here and — surprise ! — it blows.

    • why can't MS make a decent browser? I just don't understand it.hans_glib1/2
      that approach does not work in the real world...fadein112/2

    I don't support or test for IE 7 anymore unless the client specifically requests it.

    When I only have a limited amount of time to work on a website, I concentrate on things that will make it more future-proof rather than troubleshooting browsers of the past.

    I do check all of my work in IE 8, 9 and 10 though.

    This is a good talking point for clients

    "Facebook has joined the likes of Google, YouTube and a growing list of other websites who no longer support IE7"

    depends on how much of the functionality depends on it.
    Progressive enhancement normally means that its not an issue.

    Why dont you try debugging it? It could be a case of a missing semi-colon or something
