    Formulate's Date Field Compatibility with IE

    Good morning,

    I have the latest version of Formulate (3.5.1) with Umbraco 8.5.5. I attempted to add in the date field and it works great with every other browser except for IE. While I'm able to add in a date by typing in the date using "mm/dd/yyyy" format, there is no calendar widget available and I am able to also add any other text. When I do add anything else other than "mm/dd/yyyy" and click my Submit button, the form acts as if it is submitted but the handler is not triggered. Adding a date validation to the field does not work because then the date field does not work properly with the other browsers. Since I was on a tight deadline, I ended up replacing the date field with a text field with a regular expression validation. I thought I would bring this up. I understand that support for IE is generally declining, but would you have any thoughts?

    Thank you, David

    we took the decision not to support IE at all for our umbraco project and anyone visiting the site using IE gets redirected to a holding page with links to download alternative browsers, even IE 11 is going to be out of support from August this year and older versions have been out of support for some time. It's market share is now < 2% so not a huge decision to make.

    There is some discussion about that here:

    In short, you can add a date polyfill to get it working in more browsers (such as IE11).
