Troubles with Commenting on Internet Explorer

  • Author

    Followers are having problems commenting on my blog if they are using Internet Explorer. If you look in IE at the blog you will see that the comment box is overlapping the log in boxes. My followers can’t log in to comment. If you hit table while logging in it does work but my followers don’t realize this. How do I make it work so it runs properly like on Firefox, Opera, Chrome……? Thanks

    The blog I need help with is


    This is probably something staff is going to have to address. Contact them at and they will need to know what version of IE the people are using.


    Thanks, I sent them off a message. Apparently its a problem for some on Firefox as well. Its not a problem if I look on firefox though…. This is quite frustrating.


    I’m thinking this might be part of a code issue with the Choco theme. the comments I have been receiving on this issue is users of IE and Firefox can’t comment due to the overlapping. This problem didn’t start until we switched the theme to Choco.

    How would I correct it from this point? Thanks!


    I just looked in Firefox, and do not see any overlap between the text area and the name/email/website fields.

    Can you give me a link to a post where this is reportedly happening?


    Ah, I was looking on the site linked to your username. I now see the problem when I go to the site you referenced in your first posting.

    Have you by chance done any CSS editing on that blog?


    I’ve been playing with your CSS, and there is a lot of stuff messed up. What exactly have you done?


    There was one number I had to change so my widgets weren’t stacked in my side bar. Would that have caused the problem. I haven’t done anything besides that. :(


    We just switched the theme recently. The only thing I have done code wise is through widgets, I made the donation button.

    If you are willing to help me. What actions are needing to be done. I am someone who doesn’t know much about HTMLs but loves working with them. I’m learning as I go.


    On the previous theme, had you done CSS changes? If you had, when you switched to Choco, did you delete all the CSS you had in the window and then click the “add to existing…” button and then click save stylesheet?


    The reason I’m asking this is that I see a ton of CSS changes being applied to this theme.


    We did some changes to the old theme but didn’t change the CSS when I changed back grounds. I will give that a shot….hopefully I don’t screw anything up ;).


    When I select Choco theme CSS and then cut and paste it into the CSS of the blog (hopefully thats what I’m suppose to do) it doesn’t give me the whole choco theme. just half of it. brown back ground but none of the “images” that come with the theme. what would I be doing wrong?


    Apparently if I go try and change the theme its all funky, no matter which theme I choose :(. Damn it. How did I screw up so badly? I can’t think of where things went wrong if I used the choco theme CSS.

    HELP if you are willing to deal with me.

    Here is what it is looking like so far



    When I delete the CSS and look in Preview it seems that the missing Choco Theme visuals are there but all scrambled up. But where are those codes if I deleted the CSS sheet?



    CSS is theme specific. If you have custom CSS and later change themes, you need to delete whatever CSS you have in the Editor, otherwise, you’ll get undesired results.

    To ‘reset’ a theme, you need to delete the CSS in the Editor, make sure the “add to existing CSS” radio button is checked, then save. Things should go back to normal.

    When you alter a theme’s stylesheet, you only need to put in the Editor the modification/additions to the CSS, not the entire thing. Read this for more info:


    Ok, after not being patient on posting lots of questions to you, I think I have it figured out now. :)

    Thank you “thesacredpath” for answering the questions I had and solving my problem. You have helped me in the past and always are always able to guide me in the right direction. Again I thank you for your time it was greatly appreciated!!
