They can push on the button but most off the time nothing happens. The blog I need help with is mrbendb.wordpress.com.

In other words, it’s the same here as it is at Facebook. January 8, 2013 at 5:25 pm #1118026 timethiefMember P.S.

They all use W7 and IE9 and i think that’s the problem. Are you using XP and Firefox? Thnx again January 8, 2013 at 5:51 pm #1118043 timethiefMember Yes I am a Firefox user. i ditched IE when the horror IE6 was introduced long ago. Note: If they are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported.

It was an IE9 problem. The most visitors are using it. I can hardly tell everyone to use Firefox. Time to change my theme… Regards, Ben January 8, 2013 at 6:11 pm #1118056 timethiefMember Changing your theme will make absolutely no difference at all.
