    Can you try a different browser? Some versions of IE are not very friendly with wp. I am Mac only but have seen something about disabling “compatibility mode” on IE in some versions. You might try that?

    Don’t cancel or delete. Don’t get discouraged. I’m sure we can figure out what is happening!

    1 Tess I am not computer savvy when coming to software. What do you mean by IE? Secondly, on my site, there’s this statement: This WordPress.site is cat’s pajamas, what does this mean?

    What version of IE are you using? Older versions aren’t going to work.

    IE is Internet Explorer, the “browser” that many people using Windows still have and use. Other browser names that you might or might not recognize are Firefox and Chrome (from Google). If you don’t recognize these, don’t worry. Whichever browser you are using, check your menu bar for a Help menu with an “About…” on it. Click that and tell us what you see for name of program and version number.

    That is a quite ancient version, riddled with bugs and not very supportive of any modern web standards. You should consider upgrading to something more recent, directly from the Microsoft site. Alternatively, you could switch to another browser. Judging by your posts, I’d say it’d be easier for you to upgrade IE. Go to microsoft.com and look for Internet Explorer.

    IE6.0 is the worst browser version Microsoft ever put out. They no longer support it and WordPress.com does not support it either. See here please to download supported browsers and versions http://browsehappy.com

    I would recommend that you work your way through this useful tutorial:
    http://learn.wordpress.com/

    You are only a 4 hour old wp.com blogger. The tutorial will get you oriented to using this wordpress.com platform.

    Your “about” page is a page you can edit. Here is how to edit a page:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/

    But you would benefit by working through the tutorial. It really won’t take long for you to learn a lot about starting a blog here.
