    I designed a custom theme for wordpress.

    everything was working just fine until i found out that when someone visits my website http://www.efoti.com from internet explorer. It looks retarded.

    I tried putting a code into the functions.php file but it still didnt do the job.

    I really need help with this issue, i need it fixed as soon as possible and i dont know where to start at all.

    this is what it looks like:

    Hi hishgfx,

    You may find Adobe browser lab useful, it produces screen grabs of your site in IE7, 8, 9 and other browsers. From there, you can identify what may be wrong.

    For a starter, you may need to float your <li> elements in your navigation to get them to display properly in IE.

    Try sorting out the markup errors. Then move onto the CSS errors.

    If you continue to have problems with IE, consider conditional comment CSS

    the thing is guys it was working fine then all of the sudden it messed up. its not like this has always been like this. I understand that errors are the reasons for this type of issue but it was working before and now its not, without me changing any code.

    Half of web design/development is making sure your code is cross-browser compatible. I usually design for Chrome, testing in Firefox and Safari occasionally, then move on to IE bugs when I'm done. You'll find your own personal way of working, but the tools esmi linked to above are a good place to start.
