Our website uses the popular WordPress content management system on the backend. In May of this year, WordPress announced that they will no longer support Internet Explorer 11 as of version 5.8 of WordPress. The PGR makes every effort to keep up to date on versions of WordPress and the various plugins we use. We will be updating to version 5.8 of WordPress in the next few days. This means that you may experience issues with the website if you are still using Internet Explorer.
This is especially important for those members that volunteer on the moderation teams. It is strongly recommended that you update to a more modern browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Microsoft Edge. Not only for this website, but for your general internet browsing experience.

This is the information from WordPress’ release:
Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) was released over 7 years ago and is currently used by less than 1% of all users on the Internet with usage rapidly declining. A large majority of popular websites have already stopped supporting IE11 (including Microsoft Teams in 2020), and even the Microsoft 365 apps and services will be dropping support later this year.
When WordPress 5.8 is released in July of this year, Internet Explorer 11 will no longer be supported.
If you are currently using IE11, it is strongly recommended that you switch to a more modern browser, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge. IE11 users have been shown a warning that IE11 is considered outdated in the WordPress dashboard for the last 17+ months.
If you are already using one of the more modern browsers above, you will only be positively impacted by this change, as there are performance benefits to dropping IE11 support. However, if any other users of your site are still using IE11, it’s possible they will be affected.
