I just am looking for someone to take a look at a site at http://solsticesite1.com/newsite/ and look at it in ie 8 with Windows and send me a screenshot.  Just trying to see if it is working right.  I am using Sauce Labs and it shows an issue, but was told it is fine.  Is there another good way to view ie8, and test stuff.

Try using :

http://www.browserstack.com/

or possibly
http://browsershots.org/
if you are just after an idea of how you render.

FWIW--That site works for me in Firefox and in IE11.
What problem do you see?  You are not giving much information.  What issue is reported?  What do you not feel is right?

The layout.  Just did the site in bootsrap and not sure if it is working in ie8.  I am showing issues on my testers, but do not have an actual ie8.  I don't think the layout is correct in 8.  It should look just like it does in the firefox or ie11

I assume you have IE11.

Open it up now hit F12 now in the lower left click on the emulation icon it looks like a monitor.Then under User Agent String change it to the browser you wish to view your site in.

Multiple problems
For Bootstrap to work correctly in IE8 you need respond.js
http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/

You are using HTML5 elements in a non HTML5 browser - use a shiv/shim
https://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/

Use IETester for testing in older browsers
http://www.my-debugbar.com/wiki/IETester/HomePage

Finally, drop support for IE8 - its a dead browser that everyone is dropping support for.,

Start by a quick validation http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fsolsticesite1.com%2Fnewsite%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1&group=0&user-agent=W3C_Validator%2F1.3+http%3A%2F%2Fvalidator.w3.org%2Fservices#line-32 and you have  a div inside of the ul you don't need.
<div class="clr"></div>
</ul>
<div class="clr"></div>

Open in new window


+1 for dropping ie8 support.  It's time to let this stuff die.  These people know they are on old browsers and expect errors.  ie8 and 7 can't account for more than 1% or 2% of your user base.  Google dropped ie9 support last year. https://support.google.com/a/answer/33864?hl=en
