Blog Working in Safari, NOT IE or Firefox? (7 posts)

    Hi,

    My blog http://www.thehealthyadvocate.com works very well in Safari, but it isn't showing up correctly in Firefox OR Internet Explorer.

    I'm sure I'm not the first this has happened to. Perhaps there is another post on this subject that someone can point me to?

    I really appreciate it!

    Hello, it looks like at the very least, your scripts are being loaded in the wrong order (possibly incorrectly through modifications to the theme you're using).

    For example, there's a file called scripts.js that uses jQuery, but is running before jQuery is loaded into your page, which is causing lots of errors.

    Without being able to see what modifications have been done to your theme, it's difficult to point out exactly where the problem is occurring though.

    I hope that helps give you a pointer as to where to look though.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your quick reply. I do not know what modifications I have made to the theme. I have added text and plugins to the side bars, but the side bars were built into the theme. I haven't changed any HTML.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi there,

    Yes, I have tried these things upon your suggestion. It doesn't seem to work. It seems as though I have read somewhere that if you paste posts in WordPress from a Word file, it will cause problems with the WordPress themes in some browsers.

    I might've pasted a couple of posts through Open Office, but not Word. Do you think this might be the cause? If so, what should I do to remedy this?

    Thank you!

    Well will you look at that. I must've missed the suggestion of switching to Twenty Eleven. I activated the Twenty Eleven theme and the blog showed up beautifully on FIreFox. Would switching to a new theme be the remedy?

    Not as such. What this does indicate is that there's an issue in your previous theme.
