Problems with this site in Internet Explorer 6

March 15th, 2007 at 06:11pm

It looks like Internet Explorer 6 is experiencing issues displaying this website (thanks to Khay for pointing it out to me). For one reason or another the sidebar is appearing right down the bottom of the page, below the last post…but it’s only happening on the front page. At this stage I see no reason why this is happening as nothing in the sidebar has changed since it last rendered correctly in Internet Explorer.

The good news is that the problem does not occur in Internet Explorer 7 or Mozilla Firefox or Opera or anything else for that matter.

I’ll keep trying to fix it, but I’m no expert in HTML or PHP, so if I have no luck then it will just have to stay like that until the site changes to a new webhost in a couple weeks…the new webhost has a web design team so they will (hopefully) be able to fix it if I can’t.

Despite the fact that I avoid Internet Explorer where possible, the majority of the people visiting this site do use it, so I am treating this as a priority issue. I apologise for any inconvenience this may be causing.

Update 6:31am 16 March 2007: The problem was resolved overnight…not fixed but resolved…details this evening. End Update

    The fact that the sidebar is at the bottom of the page doesn’t bother me at all .
    Don’t worry about it.

    Well I think it’s out of my league anyway…but I can’t understand what the problem is, it was working after the most recent change which is why I can’t understand what’s wrong with it.

    I suppose the bottom line is…Internet Explorer 6 never rendered it properly in the first place, Microsoft have fixed whatever issue was causing it in Internet Explorer 7, and browsers which take notice of standards don’t have the problem.

    I do want to get it fixed eventually though.
