Microsoft has announced that they are no longer actively supporting IE11 and are encouraging all users to use their Edge browser instead:
- "Microsoft recommends using Microsoft Edge as your default browser and supports Internet Explorer 11 for backward compatibility."
As a result, POWr has decided to add more modern front-end elements to our plugins regardless of whether or not those elements are confirmed to be working correctly in IE11.
The Date/Time picker we are currently using in our Form Builder plugins does NOT work on IE11. Website visitors will not see the element in your form if they are accessing your site using Internet Explorer 11 (or any previous version of IE).
Troubleshooting IE11 Date/Time issues:
- If many of your site visitors are using Internet Explorer, you may choose to change your Date/Time element to a regular Text Box element and label it with Date/Time. This way, any text input is supported and the field will show up to users on any browser (see screenshots below).
- Another solution is to simply make your Date/Time element(s) not required. This way, you will not get a Date/Time response from your users, but at least the form response will successfully go through even if that answer is missing.
