Strike-through (9 posts)

    Hi,

    I am having a display problem in IE6. From a particular point all my posts and my sidebar have what looks like strike-through font. It looks fine in Firefox. Any ideas?

    I only have acronym replacer and a breadcrumb plugin activated.

    I searched for strike-through and looked at posts with IE6 in them but didn't see anything.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Looks fine now. Did you find the problem or maybe it just worked itself out. If it still shows on your set, maybe dump your cache and reload the site.

    Moose,

    Thanks for checking. I fixed it about 30 minutes ago. I saw something "extra" within the post. When I deleted it everything was fine.

    I was not too smart and did not write down what the extra thing was but it looked something like (maybe):

    <del date ....then a time stamp like thing>

    It was inside the post when viewed in the editor. I'm pretty sure I never added anything like that.

    Any ideas what it might have been?

    thanks

    You get a <del datetime="..."> tag when you click the "del" quicktag (above the text box where you write your posts). And <del> typically looks the same as a <strike> tag. You may also have accidentally insert it by hitting CTRL-D on your keyboard; I do that all the time.

    Thanks for the explanation. I appreciate you and all the others who take the time to respond. WP has a nice community attitude.

    This is a lot like the problem I'm having. For some reason, suddenly I'm getting weird strikethroughs in my side bar and in the last post on the main page. I can't figure out why this is happening. I've deleted comments/posts that might be suspicious, but nothing's helped. I even upgraded to the newest version of WP and changed the theme--still no luck. How can I figure out where the problem is if it is a bad post? What other things might be causing the problem? Thanks!
