    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    I have just done a fresh install of 3.2 with 0 plugins installed and it is still doing the same. I have checked on a few machines running IE9 all with the same results.

    The strange thing is that the twentyTen theme works on the front end but twentyEleven does not.

    When either are active the admin area is still completely screwed.

    No issues at all in IE8, apart from the fact it tells me to upgrade my browser to IE9 that doesn’t work!!

    Try taking IE9 out of compatibility mode.

    Every time i try and turn it off I get an error at the bottom of IE9 saying: A problem displaying domainname.co.uk caused Internet Explorer to refresh the page in Compatibility View. Man this is frustrating!

    Sounds like you have a bad theme or faulty plugin that causes issues in IE9. Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    As I mentioned earlier. It is a fresh install with no plugins installed. Only the default themes are installed so it can not be any of those issues.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Also re-upload a fresh copy of Twenty Eleven.

    I have done a few fresh installs from scratch. I have tried updating to 3.2 from an old version and also downloaded and installed 3.2 from new. Is there definitely no known issues with 3.2 and IE9??? I really don’t believe it is anything that I have done.

    Have you confirmed that the issues don’t occur in a different browser, such as Opera, Firefox or Google Chrome? That will let you rule out whether the issue is specific to IE’s rendering engine or your WordPress install.

    I can confirm that everything displays as it should in the following browsers:

    • Google Chrome
    • Firefox
    • Internet Exploer 7
    • Internet Exploer 8

    Just IE 9 i have issues with.

    [I don’t have IE9, so this may not be overly helpful to you]

    Are you able to open any sort of “Developer Tools” or “Debugger” in IE9 on the affected pages? You might be able to get it to display exactly what it is having issues with. (F12 in previous versions I believe)

    If you do manage to find a debugger or console, and can’t understand the output, post it here and I (or someone more adept at web-dev stuff) might be able to isolate the problem.

    I’ve tried debugging myself. All looks pretty normal and the same as firebug.

    Below are 2 links of what the login screen and dashboard look like:

    I’ve not seen any reports of IE9 issues that haven’t eventually been associated with a theme or plugin problem.

    IE9 keeps forcing itself into compatibility mode. Is that correct?
