    Hello all,

    My name is Jeff and I wanted to put this question out there for WOW slider in Internet Explorer. It seems to work in every other browser but IE. I am fairly new to WOW slider, but I believe I am using the plugin correctly. I am using the free version of WOW Slider (3.3). The WordPress WOW slider plugin version is (3.1). I also put in the placed the universal DOCTYPE declaration in the header. But nothing seems to work. All I get is that WOW slider pushed to the upper corner of the screen. As well as all the slides running going across the screen with big gaps. The arrows and navigation buttons seem to also loose their styling. There is also a some text underneath in blue I am not used to seeing. Is there a problem with the jQuery? Please let me know what is happening and if there is a possible solution. Much appreciated.

    I have just checked your page.
    It's bug of IE. All style tags after the first 31 style tags are not applied. You can get more information here:

    Actually, you call 19 (!!!) google fonts! Why??? You really use 5 only! Each additional script, style or font increases loading speed of your page. Why do you call so many extra fonts (14!) that you do not use?
    It's good idea to remove all fonts, scripts, styles, plugins that you don't use on your page. Keep only those that your really need.

    Ok thank you for your advice! I took out the unused Google fonts and released some coding in my CSS. It now works! Thanks again.
