    site not working properly in Internet Explorer Link to this post

    My site has been developed in Firefox and of course is great in that environment. There are however multiple problems for IE users which is probably most of my customer base. Eg Not all of the secondary navigation shows on some pages; The pages don't scroll down; The comments don't show or are out of place etc. I am talking IE version 7 and others unknown.

    The site uses the paddy Green theme. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hi Peita

    The common solution to this problem is to create a separate style sheet for IE6 and and another for IE7 and then conditionally include them by putting this in your header:

       <!--[if IE 6]>
             <style type="text/css">
              @import url(themes/yourtheme/css/IE6.css);
             </style>
       <![endif]-->

       <!--[if IE 7]>
             <style type="text/css">
              @import url(themes/yourtheme/css/IE7.css);
             </style>
       <![endif]-->

    Hope that helps

    I am told I still have to create the new IE6 and IE7, and probably now IE8 CSS pages. Can someone help me with how to do this. Thanks

    You create those stylesheets like you would create any "normal" stylesheet, in the text editor of your choice. Just give them a different name.
