Testing your WordPress blog on Firefox, Internet Explorer, and other browsers is imperative.

I use the Firefox browser for most of my work. However, when I began testing my blog’s appearance on the Internet Explorer (IE) browser, I began seeing a different “look”. When I thought I had things perfect, based on Firefox, a test on IE, showed me that some items, weren’t even close to perfection.

So, what do you do?

I’ve begun doing more tweaking of my blogs, using Internet Explorer, especially when I’m working with my sidebars, and adding  HTML code.

Having checked my stats, I’m seeing that over 25% of my readers are using Internet Explorer on my second blog, while on this blog, the percentage is lower. My ultimate goal is to present a blog that looks good, and is easy to navigate for all of my readers, no matter which browser they’re using.

Ironically, the theme I chose for my third blog, (which is still under construction), totally collapses in Internet Explorer. I’ve tried doing the “fix” that’s suggested, however, that still doesn’t make it readable in IE. So, for that blog, it’s back to the drawing board.

My next step is to begin testing all of my themes in other browsers.

Based on my findings, it appears your blog “theme”, is only as good as it’s appearance in all browsers.

Have you tested yours?

  1. We are using Thesis as a theme and found it to be most excellent in both browsers and older version as well. I see you are promoting Thesis. Nice!
