The new wordmark in the mobile header isn't supported in IE8 because SVG without fallback.
To solve this we propose adding an onerror attribute to the printed logo that attempts to load a PNG when the SVG fails.
onerror="this.src=this.src.replace( '.svg', '.png' ); this.onerror=null;" />
Google code-in warning
This task is a little more trickier than other tasks that may be available but hopefully rewarding as you'll be adding logos to all Wikimedia projects on older browsers. Please bear this in mind when tackling this. @Jdlrobson will mentor.
- A first change is needed to add the PNGs. There are several SVGS in https://github.com/wikimedia/operations-mediawiki-config/tree/master/static/images/mobile/copyright - for each SVG a PNG should be created
- A second change is needed to MinervaNeue to add the error handler as per above.
