Hi,Is there a way to easily override the <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=Edge"> tag that's set in Default.aspx with  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE9"> ?

If you want to change it in ALL sites, you could simply modify the default.aspx.

I would think you could CHANGE the value using some C# code in your skin. I do this in a copy of DNN5 (VBScript) to ADD the X-UA code to a skin with the following:

 Protected Sub Page_PreRender(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.PreRender
        Dim meta As Literal = New Literal()
        meta.Text = "<meta http-equiv=""X-UA-Compatible"" content=""IE=EmulateIE8"" />"
        Me.Page.Header.Controls.AddAt(1, meta)    
End Sub

Or you can download and install our free style helper skin object.

It will also remove the original meta tag, not only inject a new one.

 Add this to your skin:
<%@ Register TagPrefix="fortyfingers" TagName="STYLEHELPER" Src="~/DesktopModules/40Fingers/SkinObjects/StyleHelper/StyleHelper.ascx" %> 

    AddToHead="<meta http-equiv='X-UA-Compatible' content='IE=EmulateIE9' />"
    runat="server" />

Thanks for the replies Mike and Timo - will probably use the style helper as I can do some other stuff with that too.

The website of my company needed to be inserted in compatibility mode because there was a part of the certification system that worked good only in compatibility mode.

For do the new website in DNN was no longer necessary to use the compatibility mode because it was destroying the site layout. But many customers were instructed by support sector to put the company's website in compatibility mode, so I needed a code that forced the site to not stay in compatibildade module. I used the code Timo and everything worked.

thanks Timo!
