Theme Broken in IE9, Not showing code updates (5 posts)

    Hello all.

    I have a new blog using twenty eleven template with a few customisations & plug ins, nothing too drastic.

    However the theme looks broken in IE9, but is OK in FF & Chrome. In IE9, content & sidebar are pushing against each other. I looked for hours for a workaround & did the following:

    a) Tried to add conditional css
    b) Added <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8"> to header

    1st problem is that none of the above worked. If I look at the source code in Chrome, I can see the code edits above, but in IE9, the source code still shows the code before it was edited even though I have tried clearing cache / internet history / closing browser etc. (try comparing the head on both browsers)

    - see site here blog
    - I am using child themes
    - WordPress v 3.4.2 using twenty eleven theme

    Does anyone know why code edits not showing in IE9 or what style issue could be?

    Thanks

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

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

    Thanks Esmi

    I tried the conditional comment CSS, it shows in FF & Chrome but not when I look at IE, any reason why source code in IE is not showing the additional meta tags & conditional comment like you can see in other browsers?

    Start with resolving the markup errors first.
