    My blog is http://www.palaceprince.com and it works completely fine in firefox but when i view it in internet explorer the sidebar goes from the side to the bottom of the page.

    IS there a way to fix this ?

    Thanks in advance!!

    Some of these will generally whack IE:

    In general, edit your posts one at a time looking for something too wide for the post container – i.e. image, long uri, etc. – or bad code in the post; like from c & ping from Word or Office.

    Depends on your audience. As a general rule IE is more heavily used.
    On one of my sites it’s about 77% – just a general opinion site.
    On a semi-tech site Ie is only about 53%.

    When I click the About Me Page the sidebar is in the correct place, so does that mean one of my posts on the main page is causing the problem?

    Hi,

    I would start looking at your theme-files. There are a lot of div’s everywhere and I think it is possible you have missed a </div> somewhere. The problem evidently does not exist in your page.php-file.

    A good idea would be to try to clean up your code a bit. There are quite a few unneccesary div’s and you should try to fix all the errors so that it validates correctly (make all the tags lowercase is a start).

    I hope this helps…
