Stuff you need to know to make Yii web apps work on IE too.

Last updated:

There's a few things that work differently on IE as compared to other browsers.

This is an incomplete list of some things you might need to take heed of when deploying Yii apps.

I'll try to add items to this and I discover them and remove them if they're not an issue anymore.


  • IE doesn't like trailing commas in arrays
  • IE does not like empty target urls (in a $.post call for instance). You can replace them by location.href Other

  • The textInputs we use for Filters in CGridView don't trigger an AJAX call when the user hits enter.
