Theme not working in IE

  • roperteam


    My theme stopped working properly today in Internet Explorer. Seems to be fine in Google Chrome and on an Ipad. Right sidebar is displaying in the middle of the page and the slide show pics and twitter feed won’t load. The Navigation bar has lost its formatting. Haven’t added any new content lately so I’m not sure what could have happened.



    Yeah, it’s all messed up in IE for me also.

    IE has a funny way of doing things… however, this looks a little more than just IE.

    Have you added any widgets or plugins recently?



    I have not installed any new plugins lately. However, I did do a couple of updates the day before on a couple of photo album plugins that I’ve had installed for months. I have removed a couple of the plugins just to see if it would eliminate the problem, but so far nothing has changed.



    Usually, when something “behaves” like this, it’s because of an incompatible plugin or because you are missing a closing div tag.

    If it were the closing div tag, it would affect it across all browsers, so we can rule that one out.

    So, I would suggest deactivating your plugins one by one (be sure to refresh your browser, any caches you have on your website, and sometimes you even have to close your browser and re-open for it to fully clear it’s memory). Do this for all your plugins and post back.



    I checked my error log and saw this message:

    [01-Dec-2011 14:06:55] PHP Warning: call_user_func_array() []: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, ‘flagLoader::uninstall’ was given in /home1/prolinkv/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 405

    I have removed almost all of my plugins. Haven’t added any new ones in probably a month.



    My website is doing the same. Firefox and Chrome look great and IE looks terrible. Hardly any formatting there…..



    What plugins do you use? Wonder if it could be related to an update to a plugin?

    I figured my problem out. The SiteBrains plugin was causing the conflict.




    Again… this is almost always a plugin conflict.

    I know it’s a pain in the butt, however it’s necessary to deactivate ALL plugins to find the culprit.



    I have deactivated all my plugins. I restored from a backup that was taken last weekend and I am still having the problem. Do I need to delete the plugins again?



    You shouldn’t need to delete them… just deactivating them should prevent their interference with anything.

    Hmmmm… I’m going to need to do some checking around… will post back soon.

    My understanding is that some plugins make changes to the database, so it may not be enough just to deactivate them or even to delete them. I may be wrong on that, so if someone knows better, please let me know. But it’s one reason I only get plugins from the WP plugin repository.



    Yes. I do know plugins can make changes to the database. But every one I have seen creates it’s own tables. I haven’t seen any plugin which modifies existing database tables (however they certainly may exist).

    This is why I 100% agree with Ken. WordPress admins do a really great job at only approving plugins which are “respectful”. In my research, I have heard stories of many plugins being removed from the WordPress repository because they used “malicious” code.

    So yes, I too only download plugins from the wordpress repository.

    @ Roperteam,

    What is all that text beneath your footer? Could this be interfering?



    That’s what my next question was going to be. I have no idea where all that code is coming from. I have tried to deactivate almost every option and plugin that is available, just to eliminate potential problems. I have no plugins activated now. I, too, have only downloaded plugins from WP. I have been very careful to only select plugins that have good ratings and have been used many times. I have even read up on the author before downloading. I only have about 10 installed.
