    Hi All

    I am using Grunge wall theme on my blog http://runnerchoice.com

    and it works fine with Firefox and Chrome. The problems is with IE where the sidebar is not showing on the home page and shown distorted on the other pages.

    Anyone with experience with this? Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    There are errors in both the XHTML and CSS.
    Check your pages using the Markup Validation Service @ http://validator.w3.org/
    and the CSS Validation Service @ http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
    For cross browser compatibility, the best solution is to use a separate stylesheet for IE.

    Hi jberghem.
    I'm having the same issue as goolyh. I too am using Grunge Wall theme. My sites url is http://online-anime.freecp.net. And I did check my pages with Markup Validation Service and did found that I have errors. But why? I just installed WP and installed this theme and didn't do anything with the coding or anything. Does the theme itself have these errors?

    Can you be more specific please?

    There are a lot of people who contribute themes. These are not made by the makers or developers of the WP core. There are a lot of themes that unfortunately do not validate. They have mixed HTML and XHTML together on the same page or use depreciated tags etc. WP currently does not require a submitted theme to validate according to W3C standards. (maybe an idea for the future)

    IE has always had odd behavior compared to the other browsers. Fortunately there are conditional comments. Read the following posts they'll shed some light on how that works.
