    I have been working on this site for a little while now. Kinda of new to wordpress....But Im having problems with the page looking differnt in IE? Like I had a youtube video posted on there and it showed fine in firefox, chrome, safari, but just showed a white box in IE? Also it is compressing some pictures when viewed in IE, but not all pictures? Am I doing something wrong? Andy help would go along way. Thanks!

    It may be possible that when you write a code/post from word and copy it in the write post/page section which may added the document code and lead to problem in looading at IE browser..

    You need to check the post code for document code and remove it..

    If you are copying from Word, look for things such as single or double quotes, commas, and apostrophes. The special characters will get copied in the format of the font, instead of plain text. When the server interprets these characters it will escape them, which causes the issue.

    If you tail the logs, and you see a few random characters in strange places, you'll know this is the issue.

    To tail the logs, use the following command:

    tail -fn0 <path to error logs>

    Then browse to the site in IE. This will display the error information in real-time.
