One of my URL link received DNN Error. The page works fine on other browser except for IE11. However when I include the website domain in IE setting under the "Compatibility View Settings", the page get loaded correctly.
Is there anyway I can fix this through <meta>? Or through DNN Platform? So that visitor will not hit the DNN error while visiting the page?

You can try adding this to the HEAD of the page.

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

If you are running on DNN 8 there is a site setting for this as well. "X-UA-Compatible Http Header"

I am using version 5.0, kind of old.
I went to the page that is having the DNN error, I click on "Setting" under "Page Functions" located on top left.

Under Advance Settings > Page Header Tags, I inserted following in the textbox:

<head><meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" /></head>
And click update. But doesn't work.
Am I doing it right?
