Bootstrap 3 for IE7

LICENSE Tip Me via PayPal github-stars-image

Bootstrap 3 dropped support for Internet Explorer 7, but you can add it back by simply adding this conditional CSS.

<!--[if lt IE 8]>
    <link href="/css/bootstrap-ie7.css" rel="stylesheet">



  • Q. Do I need to make any changes to my HTML to add support for bootstrap3-ie7?

    A. Nope! Just include the conditional IE7 stylesheet and you're ready to go!

  • Q. Does this include the new Glyphicons introduced in Bootstrap 3.3.2?

    A. Yep!

  • Q. What about rounded corners, box shadows and gradients for IE7. How can I get those?

    A. You could use CCS3Pie for adding support for those CSS3 properties to older IE. If you use that you can add this to your CSS to quickly add border-radius

  • Q. Is the CSS available on a CDN?

    A. Yes, thanks to JSDelivr:, however the box sizing polyfill requires the CSS to be hosted locally so the layout will be broken if you serve the CSS from a CDN.

  • Q. What about Internet Explorer 6?

    A. Although this CSS does not include IE6-specific fixes, it does fix the webfonts icon, so it's worthwhile using the conditional code if lt IE 8 rather than if IE 7.

  • Q. What about Bootstrap 4?

    A. I've created a couple of stylesheets for Internet Explorer 8 and 9 to add support for Bootstrap 4. Check it out at:

Known Issues

  • The polyfill can be a little bit buggy. Please make sure you follow the instructions for using that carefully.
  • As this is only a CSS stylesheet there may be problems with using Bootstrap 3's JavaScript in IE7.
