[resolved] Browser Compatibility Issue with IE - How can I fix it? (7 posts)

    I got his message in the comment area:

    Hello, There’s no doubt that your website could be
    having web browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your
    blog in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, excellent site!

    I am not familiar with codes and how to manipulate them etc. I have read other thread but it seems that I need more elementary help. I use Safari and Chrome with no problem.

    Please let me know if you could reproduce the problem with IE.

    How can I fix this? or should I bother fixing it?
    Thank you.

    What you should do is to open IE and see if you see issues on your site then you can then ask if others see them and if they can help with it.

    Thank you ...
    I use Mac, and looked around for the IE download, but I am not even sure if it is possible, or a good idea, for me to download and use IE. I think I am staying away from it for now. I will need to ask someone uses IE to check.

    You can ask others to do that, but the reality is that you are asking them to do some work and that may be an issue since they have to compare the site in different browsers. When I get comments like that, I try to ask more questions like what os they are using and a few other things. I realize you don't have the luxury to ask so you may have to be proactive and check yourself.

    These types of questions are too general and thus people tend not to help out with. If you say 'I'm having trouble with the images on my contact us page in IE' then you will most likely get some help.

    If you are developing for old IE then I recommend you try out BrowserStack: http://browserstack.com

    I wouldn't worry to much about this. Your site probably displays just fine.

    This is actually a spam comment. I've seen this posted on my site long ago and also on other blogs.

    If you google for the phrase:
    "no doubt that your website could be having web browser compatibility issues"
    you'll see a lot of results showing the same comment worded in many different ways.

    Thank you all!

    My initial impression was that it was a spam.
    I will ask a couple people who use IE and if they are fine, I will just leave it alone.

    Good tips!
