Our WordPress site is not displaying properly in Internet Explorer. It looks fine in Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. I reverted back to a backup I had of the style sheet from a month ago, but it doesn’t seem to help. Any ideas? I read in another forum that it might be theme-related, or it might not be.
I’m not sure which version of Dynamix I am using…how can I tell? I am using WordPress 3.5.2.
I thought that the formatting problem might be the Style sheet, so I did a file compare of the current style sheet I am using and an original I saved when the Dynamix theme was first downloaded. Very little is different…just a few width values that I changed. I will start de-activating each of the plug-ins one by one to see if this helps. It is very strange!
I have read in other forums that the test version of Dynamix displays nicely in Internet Explorer, but after doing a file compare of the style sheet, I know that I haven’t changed something that should not have been changed.
Are any of you out there using Internet Explorer 8 or 9? If so, go to http://www.larkinhospital.com and tell me if you see a messed up website!
P.S. Some WordPress help forums are saying that these alignment issues can be caused when there are errors in the source code. I tried validating the Style sheet, and it said there were SO MANY errors, but after doing the file compare, I can say with certainty that I am using the same style sheet as the original Dynamix theme download.
A little more background is that the site looks fine in IE6, messed up in IE7, 8, and 9, and fine again in IE10. The terrible irony is that 52% of our visitors are using IE8!
If you navigate to Appearance > Themes you will see DynamiX and the theme version. I cannot see which version you are using as it looks like it has been removed from the top of the style.css file.
If the version isn’t 3.1 or above, I would recommend updating. Please see here for information on upgrading using the Envato plugin.
Hope this helps.
Hi Tom, I have same problem with IE.
Please post in the appropriate forum for ePix here. Please also reply with your login details and we will take a further look into this for you.
I recieve an error: “a problem displaying caused internet explorer to refresh the webpage using compatibility”
I changed the settings of IE like explaned here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/use-compatibility-view#ie=ie-11 but it’s not solved the problem.
It says on the site “Not all website display problems are caused by browser incompatibility. Interrupted Internet connections, heavy traffic, or problems with the website can also affect how a page is displayed.”
The site seems fine so I can only presume it is an interrupted internet connection. We have had no one else report this before.
I recommend not using IE, as it renders sites very badly and causing many silly little issues. Try using Chrome as you will be surprised how sites actually look and function.
