    I am having a major problem right now. My sites are displaying fine in firefox but will not load up at all in IE7. I'm not sure how long the problem has been going on but I was made aware of it about an hour ago.

    I've disabled all the plugins for both sites. The sites in question are

    Hey Dude, I just experienced the same problem as well for my blog, it can no longer be viewed in Ie7, did you make any changes to your blog? check out my post, maybe we have similar circumstances?

    i haven't made any changes to either site other than the normal posting that I do.

    you also didn't leave a link to check.

    i just checked yours on my internet explorer and they aren't working. Something has to be causing it. Yours also work on Safari as do mine.

    i'm thinking it's wp related, although i didn't do anything differently, so i'm not quite sure what it is. and not all of my wp blogs are having this problem either, which is strange. (both sites having problems - using wp 2.1 for one, the other is on 2.3)

    friends are telling me they can't see the sites on avant either.

    this has nothing to do with wordpress. validate your pages, LOOK at your source. Internet explorer breaks with crappy HTML, and poorly done javascript, among other things.

    thanks, whooami - i am a real neophyte when it comes to troubleshooting this type of problem and i appreciate you pointing me to the validator page!!! my daughter (who is much more web savvy than i) is fixing the code based on your feedback.

    according to the validator page, your code is fixed, but you are still getting the error, as is the rest of us.

    the problem with the second site you listed is your javascript, roofth.

    View source, and save, then open it in IE6. It initially loads THAT content, with the obligatory red X and toolbar along the top. Enable THAT content, and the page crashes.

    I think all of our errors are lying in some type of javascript code as whooami said.

    I just removed the sitemeter javascript on the http://oldmansoftball.ianbethune.com site and now all of the sudden the site is back up in IE7.

    So my question is this, is internet explorer suddenly picking up javascript code differently than yesterday. My sites were working just fine in IE earlier in the day and then it went away.

    Now by removing the sitemeter javascript, the sites are working fine.

    Hey Beisbolct, my site is Politics Across The Pond, I removed the sitemeter and it works fine, you pose an interesting question. I am not the coder in my house so I am going to ask my little brother and see what he says. It is strange how IE7 can work one day and not another. It is probably a sitemeter issue perhaps? I am going to email them to see what they say.

    I was going to do that in the morning. It turned out the sitemeter issue affected all 3 of my sites, the two I mentioned above on WordPress and one that was just a regular website.

    We also had this problem and it is indeed a Sitemeter issue. Nothing to do with WordPress:

    At least this thread put me quickly on the right track.

    Thanks for the sitemeter tip. That was the culprit.

    It was a lucky guess. If you do use sitemeter to track page visits and all that, you can still use the non-html code for now. it doesn't track referrers but works fine in IE7.

    I removed sitemeter from my blog page and was able to switch back to my old WordPress template, so it looks like sitemeter was the culprit on my page as well.

    I am an amatuer, but need help:
    Created much content (posts) using Firefox. Suddenly I notice that those posts cannot be viewed by IE users. Just looks blank. You can see the title, but nothing else. Any suggestions?

    I ran the validator and sent the info to our volunteer webmaster, but she can't look at it until tomorrow. Any suggestions for us?
