No WordPress Sidebar in IE

Posted in WordPress at 10:08 pm by Curtis J. Morley

So I am an avid user of FireFox and rarely use IE for any of my regular browsing.  Today I had IE open for testing some things and went to my site to lookup an error.  When I went to the page it had no sidebar and no navigation what-so-ever.  I tried many things to remedy the problem.  I tried changing themes, disabling widgets, etc...

After some searching I went into the code of each of posts to see what could be causing IE to look so bad.  Well it turns out that during the last Adobe Max I had copied and pasted a post from Microsoft Word into the post on Robert Burdick's presentation.

Keep reading to see how I fixed the missing WordPress sidebar for IE.

To solve the issue I copied the post from my site opened Notepad and pasted the post in.  Then I went back to WordPress and pasted the Markup free post back in.  You can see the two below.

Robert gave a great presentation to get people started with Flash Lite and Mobile.  Because I was so involved I couldn't take very detailed notes.  But Robert said that he would be putting up his presentation on his website.

    Thanks for the post, I just encountered this exact issue with a site I’m working on when I went to test it in IE. After hours of rewriting code, I found your post. Much appreciated!
