Reader doesn't load at all

  1. Hi

    I set up my site about a month ago but have been unable to get the Reader tab to load.

    I know this might sound a little stupid but I have no idea what it is supposed to do or how I am to use it as I have never seen it.

    When I click on the Reader tab I get a message saying 'Loading' and a little image a bit like a petal shapes in a circle which looks like it is loading the page but it never does.

    Can anyone help pelase?

    Thanks

  6. If you run IE9 in compatibility mode it renders as if it's IE7 and IE7 is not supported. You're welcome.
