As of April 5, 2013, we will no longer support Internet Explorer 7 (IE 7) on Wikispaces. Starting March 12, visitors to any Wikispaces site using IE 7 will see a warning banner linking to this blog post. We will continue to support Internet Explorer versions 8, 9, and 10 as well as modern versions of Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
If you are using IE 7 we encourage you to upgrade to a newer version of Internet Explorer by running Windows Update or by contacting your IT department. If you can’t upgrade Internet Explorer we heartily recommend Chrome or Firefox.
Internet Explorer 7 was released almost seven years ago in October 2006. Microsoft has since release three new major IE versions, with IE 10 launching at the end of 2012. Given the tiny percentage of visitors who still use IE 7 on Wikispaces, we can’t continue to justify the amount of work that is required to maintain support. We’re in good company; Google and Facebook both stopped supporting IE 7 in 2011. And, critically, your choice of safe, fast, and free alternatives has never been better.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
