Document Mode is not set by IE11's Enterprise Mode for portal component

Hello Experts,

My portal version is 7.31 SP17 and it runs (for now) in quirks mode.

I need to run the portal in IE11's Enterprise Mode but one portal component should run in IE11 Standards Mode.

I created a URL iView that opens the portal component in a new window. The URL is: /irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/myprj.ComponentName.

Then I added the following entries to the site list Enterprise Mode xml file:

<rules version="3">
    <domain exclude="false">
        <path exclude="true">/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/myprj.ComponentName</path>
        <path docMode="edge">/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/myprj.ComponentName></path>

The EMIE part works: The portal is opened in enterprise mode except my component's URL.

The docMode part is not working: I set it to 'edge' but it still renders as quirks.

How can I solve this issue?

    Hi Omri,

    Enterprise mode is not valid in EP, see note- 2315409 - Issues caused by Enterprise mode

    EP has it's on way of handling quirks mode (IE5 mode/old IE7 mode) that is the browser document mode iView.

    Please see Maya Amit's blog-

    Thanks and BR,

    • Hi Saar,

      I'm aware of the blogs and notes and I implemented it for the portal and it works a few months without any problem.

      I need standards mode for one portal component.

      I solved it, it was a typeo (-:

      The green closing tag should not be there:

      <path docMode="edge">/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/myprj.ComponentName></path>
