    Hi everyone, don’t know if this is a problem with IE7 or what.

    When posting a new post (on my default WordPress installation) using IE7 (*cringe*), I cannot change the author using the Post Author drop down menu as IE7 displays a stupid message telling me that a pop up has been blocked when I click the drop down menu.

    Is anyone else with multiple authors on their blog experiencing this?


    Ok I’ve just realised this happens not only with the Post Author drop down but with every drop down menu within the WordPress admin interface.

    My pop up blocker settings are on the default they were when I installed IE7 (which is Medium) but this shouldn’t be happening anyway seeing as no pop up is being popped up when you use a drop down menu…
