I thought I’d finally got my installation of WordPress to sing at http://guildofscientifictroubadours.com – it’s a version of the Pool Theme modified by a man with limited CSS/HTML experience and nearly no real knowledge of how php works.
The site is going swimmingly in Safari & Firefox, the two browsers I do nearly all my work on – but I’ve just learned that in Internet Explorer 7, the links to the pages aren’t live. The words appear in their proper tabs, but they’re not links – no rollover, no address, nothing.
Clicking on them is exactly the same as clicking on the image above them – it just reloads the home page.
I’m guessing, based on this behavior, that something in IE 7 is reading <div id="page"> as part of <div id="header"> or else is reading the header as taller than it actually is (a misplaced “height” tag?) or something.
Wow, that was peculiar – I got it to work not by *shrinking* the height of the header div, but by *expanding* it (and by removing a 1.5em line height I’d stuck on all the content, and putting that just on the blog entries).
So solved the problem by doing something counterintuitive.
