Blog looks horrible on Internet Explorer

  1. Hi guys,

    I've been blogging on a Mac and was recently made aware that my blog looks horrible when visited on IE!
    I've read threads on images disappearing and text looking odd, but I can't even see my text!

    I don't paste text from Word - I noticed that could've been a problem. I write directly in the text box WordPress provides.

    Any help??

    Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is reanspeaks.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi there,
    The blog looks fine in IE8 and as IE9 and IE10 are the most recent versions note that IE7 is not supported and has not been for over a year now.

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache:

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled: http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If it’s still happening, let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using by checking here if necessary http://www.whatbrowser.org/ and also post any error reports you get.

  3. Good GAWD!
    This is that block of categories/tags you placed on a single post:

    Tags: beauty, rean, bellabox, clinique, Speaks, make up, Rimmel, waterproof, gel, eye, serum, face, Multi, lovelove, love, market, skin, mineral, loose, cream, oil, lotion, pore, application, product, make, up, shadow, dry, nourish, healthy, light, tone, hair, march, mascara, elixir, scalp, flaking, theme, mask, black, spf, smooth, positive, april, condition, small, shine, innovative, month, excited, cellilux, deep, sea, secret, glacial, charged, bacteria, impurity, negative, heads, orofluido, argan, linseed, cyperus, silky, hair type, type, roots, indio, vitamin, a, h, f, beautiful, strong, minimiser, avene, micellar, remove, cleanse, water, residue, bb, popular, asia, western, 25, properties, perfecting, mattify, illuminate, brighten, minimise, pores, protects, lash, card, cardboard, upper, lower, stain, longer, curled, lashes, lid, straight, curler, large, clumping, pigments, apply, eylure, naturalites, falsies, false

    That's called spamdexing and search engines like Google and will bury you content where the sun don't shine for doing that over-tagging.

    The rule of thumb is to assign the least combined number of categories and tags that accurately describe the post content.

    All reasons for non-appearance of posts on Topics pages can be found here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/#missing-posts

    As you have assigned a combined total that exceeds 15 Categories/Tags to your posts, you need to edit and delete. http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/ After removal note it may take several days for your posts to begin displaying there.
