    Is anyone lese having HUGE issues with WordPress 3.2 and IE9. My login screen style looks strange as is the styling within the main admin. No content is showing within the main area at all.

    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.

    I have just done a fresh install of 3.2 with 0 plugins installed and it is still doing the same. I have checked on a few machines running IE9 all with the same results.

    The strange thing is that the twentyTen theme works on the front end but twentyEleven does not.

    When either are active the admin area is still completely screwed.

    No issues at all in IE8, apart from the fact it tells me to upgrade my browser to IE9 that doesn't work!!

    Try taking IE9 out of compatibility mode.

    Every time i try and turn it off I get an error at the bottom of IE9 saying: A problem displaying domainname.co.uk caused Internet Explorer to refresh the page in Compatibility View. Man this is frustrating!

    Sounds like you have a bad theme or faulty plugin that causes issues in IE9. 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.

    As I mentioned earlier. It is a fresh install with no plugins installed. Only the default themes are installed so it can not be any of those issues.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Also re-upload a fresh copy of Twenty Eleven.

    I have done a few fresh installs from scratch. I have tried updating to 3.2 from an old version and also downloaded and installed 3.2 from new. Is there definitely no known issues with 3.2 and IE9??? I really don't believe it is anything that I have done.

    Have you confirmed that the issues don't occur in a different browser, such as Opera, Firefox or Google Chrome? That will let you rule out whether the issue is specific to IE's rendering engine or your WordPress install.

    I can confirm that everything displays as it should in the following browsers:

    • Google Chrome
    • Firefox
    • Internet Exploer 7
    • Internet Exploer 8

    Just IE 9 i have issues with.

    [I don't have IE9, so this may not be overly helpful to you]

    Are you able to open any sort of "Developer Tools" or "Debugger" in IE9 on the affected pages? You might be able to get it to display exactly what it is having issues with. (F12 in previous versions I believe)

    If you do manage to find a debugger or console, and can't understand the output, post it here and I (or someone more adept at web-dev stuff) might be able to isolate the problem.

    I've tried debugging myself. All looks pretty normal and the same as firebug.

    Below are 2 links of what the login screen and dashboard look like:

    I've not seen any reports of IE9 issues that haven't eventually been associated with a theme or plugin problem.

    IE9 keeps forcing itself into compatibility mode. Is that correct?

    No - it's not. Is this happening when using Twenty Eleven?

    Both TwentyTen and TwentyEleven. The front end of TwentyEleven doesn't even show up in IE9.

    Well, the bad new for you is that the front end of the current theme (Twenty Eleven) at that link works fine for me in IE9. There's certainly nothing in either Twenty Eleven or Twenty Ten that forces IE into compatibility mode. and given that I can view the site without any problems, that would seem to rule out your server as the culprit - which just leaves your browser/machine.

    OK, that's good news in a way. I just need to find out what the hell is going on with my copy of IE9 (and the guy's sitting opposite me). Grrrrr, there's always something with IE!!!

    Oh - are you behind a corporate firewall?

    There's a firewall here but nothing would stop anything like this surely?

    I wouldn't rule it out. I've know corporate firewalls do some pretty funky things to incoming files. Have you tried accessing the site from home?

    Works for me in IE9. The graphic of your dashboard shows a plugin? I know you said you had none installed.

    Please check to see if you have the latest Java installed, http://java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

    I can duplicate your dashboard. Please go to screen options in the upper right corner and turn on what you want to see. If they are all off you will get exactly what is in the graphic you posted.

    [Edit] I can see you don't have that button. Sorry.

    Java is running. That plugin has since been removed, it was just the default Askimet plugin. The screen tab isn't even appearing. As i've said, it is fine in every other browser so doubt it is an option in WordPress. I have tried it on 3 PC's now and all of them force in compatibility view. Damn IE9!!!!

    I have been running 3.2 for sometime now on my sites and have not been forced into compatibility mode. Nor was I with yours.

    What is happening on the back end has nothing to do with IE9 but is a conflict with or not loading a javascript.
