WordPress update causing issues in IE

Recommended Posts


Just installed the latest version of WP (3.5.1). Now the header, footer and menu colors aren't showing up. There is a date stamp at the end of the text section. Formatting of posts pages all wrong now too (Pagelines > site options > Blog and Posts > Clip Excerpt Mode choice isn't working, two different format date stamps are showing up even though I have the date hidden). The footer text color isn't right either. The attached photos are using IE8 (a week ago everything looked fine). Everything looks fine in Firefox and Safari.


Update: I downgraded to WP 3.5.0 (using these instructions) and am still having the IE issue.


Update2: James had a great idea of checking the google ie compatibility box (pagelines> site options>advanced). That sort of solved the problem -- everything looks right, but now it takes FOREVER to load, and in some instances, crashes the browser. James suggested there might be a javascript issue somewhere.


Update 3: upgraded to 3.5.1 again (since I can't seem to completely downgrade).  With the google compatibility script, the page renders properly but the load time doubles (which crashes IE on any computer old enough to be using IE8).  I didn't need the google script until upgrading yesterday.  The Google script seems to cause two instances of IE to run?


I also still have the problem with all section features automatically doubling.  I made two content boxes.  After making the two content boxes, all other section features thought there were two of them.


Have also reached out to Simplicate support

Thank you Enrique.  Appreciate the help.  Agree with you that IE is frustrating.  Unfortunately, in my industry, a large contigent of my cusotmers still use IE8.

      I have installed the PageLines framework and the Simplicitate child theme -- and activated it. However, it's not appearing on my site and I don't see any options for it. Not sure at all what I'm doing incorrectly and greatly appreciate your help!
      P.S. Do you have any documentation for using this child theme? That way, I can hopefully avoid bugging you with future questions!

      I tried to use the 'sexy snips' code to center the navigation for simplicitate, a couple of plug-ins (now deleted) from wp, as well as other code found in the forums. alas, nothing has worked. 
      just to be clear, before i posted to the forums i deactivated all of my plugins. i tried the code in every one of the sections available (since i figured it was possible i put it in the wrong 'section'). so far, no love. 
      is anyone able to provide some simple code i can put in the 'custom code section' which might work with this theme to center the navigation? 
      oh, and while i'm on here (heheheh) is there any way to switch to very simple text navigation? the buttons for this theme are rather 'bulky'. if not, no worries. i'm more concerned about centering the nav in any case.
      by the way, everyone who's responded on these forums have been awesome. it's such a relief (and very refreshing) for those of us with no coding skills to be helped in such a friendly way. thanks again. :) 
      i'm so glad i bought this software. i was terrified i'd end up without support again. - let me know if you need a testimonial.

      Using 2.4.3 Framework with the Simplicitate Theme. I removed this theme because there were other bugs in it, and I thought this might be one of them, but when I returned to the framework as theme the subnav still didn't show up. 
      I have double checked the parent and child pages were properly assigned, and have used several browsers to see if perhaps it was a Google Chrome issue. So far, the subnav doesn't show up in Chrome, Explorer, Firefox, or Opera. 
      Currently, the site can be viewed at http://ashbybp.com/wp. It is live, but not advertised as yet. When it goes live it will be at http://ashby-bp.com.
      I am the complete opposite of web-guru. I have no idea if any plug-in could affect this site and wouldn't know where to begin in terms of removing them to help. All I know is navigation is going to be seriously hampered until this is sorted. Any assistance would be very greatly appreciated.  
      Thank you.

      Can´t get the Meny drop down to work properly. Take a look at http://minecrafttournament.net and you understand the problem. 
      Best regard´s and thanks for a great theme!
