SharePoint 2013 - Responsive SharePoint Design Issues with IE8 and @media tags

UPDATE:  After looking at this again, the answer is yes, I must have been doing something silly.  Guessing the page was not fully refreshing after checking in the Master Page with the changes or something like that, as I haven't changed anything to get it to work, just re-downloaded & re-added the respond.js files.


I've been spending some time with the Responsive SharePoint solution I found on CodePlex here:
and have come across an issue that I am yet to resolve when using Internet Exploer 8 (IE8) to view the page.
Using: Bootstrap-3-server.master
Issue: When using IE8, the top navigation defaults to the mobile view even when full screen (wider than 768px). This is due (i think) to IE8 not reading the .navbar-toggle inside a @media tag, which when wider than 768px, is hidden via display:none. 

Normally, for a solution using bootstrap, to resolve issues with the @media css tag, they a…

InfoPath 2010 - How Do I Deploy InfoPath Forms & Updates to SharePoint

Deploying an InfoPath formOnce you have developed your InfoPath form, most likely you will need to deploy/publish it to SharePoint so that the information can be stored and reported on.  There are different methods for deployment, which are also dependent on whether you are publishing a fresh form, or updating an old form. Two methods of Deploying/Publishing FormsWhen it comes time to deploy your form to SharePoint, there are two different methods with reasons for and against why and when you would use each.  You can publish the form as a Form Library, or as a SharePoint Content Type.
Deployment Method 1:  As a Form Library When you publish a form as a Form Library, it will create the library on the SharePoint Site of your choosing, and a copy of the form template can be found here:  http://rootsite/formlibrary/forms/template.xsn

SharePoint 2013 - Responsive Design

       Just a quick note to say if you haven't heard of it already, then you should check out this solution on CodePlex that is absolutely awesome:

What it contains:
- Responsive resizeable Master Pages & Page Layouts for SharePoint 2013 that work with Twitter's Bootstrap CSS.
- Responsive resizeable Master Pages & Pages Layouts for SharePoint 2013 that work with Zurb's Foundation CSS.

I've tried both briefly but so far prefer the Bootstrap version for the font types and colours.  Although I most of us will be making modifications to suit the clients that we are working with, they are a great starting point to Responsive Design for SharePoint that have been designed very well.

If you don't have time to build your own solution from scratch, this is the perfect starting point to build on top of.  Congratulations and thank you to all who have worked on the project so far!
