Issues with Wolsey and Internet Explorer 9

Recently Microsoft has released its latest version of Internet Explorer, IE9.  Unfortunately this latest release has compatibility issues with a number of websites, including Blackboard that powers Wolsey.

You may notice some of the following issues:

  • Drop down menus not working

  • Issues with Gradebook rows/coumns

  • Unable to reorder items

Not all users are experiencing all the problems, some experience none of the above.  We would recommend not upgrading to IE9 in the short term, if you already have upgraded or you are accessing Wolsey from a computer that you do not have control of, you will need to put IE in to "compatibility mode".


You can find more information about "Compatibility Mode" here.

For a more stable browsing experience we would recommend using a different browser, both Firefox and Chrome offer a much more pleasant experience and both are freely available.
