Darn Explorer

My wife told me the other day that our site wasn’t being properly rendered by Internet Explorer. I haven’t been using Internet Explorer for years and so I wasn’t able to spot it. I wouldn’t have minded if not for the fact that 40% of those who visit the Cybercafe Experiments use Internet Explorer.

Both my and my wife’s sites use the three-column version of Relaxation. It’s among the best WordPress themes out there. The theme’s supposed to render properly in Internet Explorer – check out the author’s site as well as the recently launched Pinoy Tech Blog. In our blogs’ case, Explorer only displays two columns.

I went through the links and scripts I placed in the sidebar and took everything out – putting them back again one by one and taking out those that caused errors in the layout. There’s still an error prompt in Explorer but at least it renders the columns properly.
