Topic: Modal not triggering in Safari 9 or IE all versions.

ashelighmorehattia pro asked 6 years ago

The modal works perfectly in all browsers except for Safari 9 and IE 9, 10 and 11. I've searched the forums and all over the internet for a solution.


Is there some special code that MDBootstrap used on the website to make it work in the above mentioned browsers?

Hi there ashelighmorehattia, Thanks for reaching out. As for modals, MDB uses JS provided alongside with Bootstrap. Are you getting any errors in the IE Developer Tools console? With Best Regards, Kuba

Facing same issues, the model is not working on IE11 but works perfect on IE Edge.


<button target="_blank" class="btn btn-md mbbbuttonyellow waves-effect waves-light" data-toggle="modal" data-target="#loginmodal">Sign In</button>

<div class="modal fade mbbmodal" id="loginmodal" tabindex="-1" role="dialog" aria-labelledby="myModalLabel" aria-hidden="true">
<div class="modal-dialog modal-notify" role="document">
<div class="modal-content">

<div class="modal-body">
<div class="text-center">
<a href="/CA/"><img src="assets/images/logo.png" class="img-fluid flex-center" width="100px"></a>
<form:form action="loadBaseData" modelAttribute="user" id="loginPage" name="loginPage" method="POST" >
<div class="form-group">
<input class="form-control mbbinputlg" placeholder="Username" id="userId" name="userId" type="text" >
<div class="form-group">

Hi Thomas, The error message seems rather enigmatic, while the problem may have multiple roots. Are you compiling your code with webpack? Note that Bootstrap's Popper.js has known compatibility issues on IE. With Regards, Kuba
