SharePoint Page Ratings Not Displaying Correctly on the First Load

7 Jan

On a recent SharePoint installation, the little rating stars on the right hand side would not display when the page first loaded. After any subsequent refreshes they would display just fine, but it was quite annoying the first time around and made the page very wide.

This fix runs forces SharePoint to run in compatibility mode which I don’t believe is the best fix, but it does seem to work.

  1. Load IIS and navigate to the SharePoint site
  2. Under Actions, click Add.
  3. In the Name box, type X-UA-Compatible.
  4. In the Value box, type IE=EmulateIE9.
  5. Click OK, done.sharepointiis
