IE 8: background-size fix


Question

I've tried to add background size to IE but it's not working at all:

HTML

<h2 id="news">Notícias <img src="white-marker.png" alt="" /></h2>

CSS:

div#content h2#news {
    background: url('../images/news-background.jpg') no-repeat;
    background-size: 100%;
    border-radius: 20px;
    color: #fff;
    margin: 20px 0 0 20px;
    padding: 8px 20px;
    width: 90%;
    -moz-background-size: 100%;
    -moz-border-radius: 20px;
    -webkit-background-size: 100%;
    -webkit-border-radius: 20px;
}

What's wrong with the filter?

I created jquery.backgroundSize.js: a 1.5K jquery plugin that can be used as a IE8 fallback for "cover" and "contain" values. Have a look at the demo.

Solving your problem could be as simple as:

$("h2#news").css({backgroundSize: "cover"});

Also i have found another useful link. It is a background hack used like this

.selector { background-size: cover; -ms-behavior: url(/backgroundsize.min.htc); }

I use the filter solution above, for ie8. However.. In order to solve the freezing links problem , do also the following:

background: no-repeat center center fixed\0/; /* IE8 HACK */

This has solved the frozen links problem for me.

As pointed by @RSK IE8 doesn't support background-size. To figure out a way to deal with this, I used some IE specific hacks as showed here:

//IE8.0 Hack!
@media \0screen {
    .brand {
        background-image: url("./images/logo1.png");
        margin-top: 8px;
    }

    .navbar .brand {
        margin-left: -2px;
        padding-bottom: 2px;
    }
}

//IE7.0 Hack!
*+html .brand {
    background-image: url("./images/logo1.png");
    margin-top: 8px;
}

*+html .navbar .brand {
    margin-left: -2px;
    padding-bottom: 2px;
}

Using this I was able to change my logo image to a ugly resided picture. But the final result is fine. I suggest u try something like this.
