So I wanted to tweak the blog, clean it up some and condense what is a ton of links maybe even find a way to do drop down menus for the link sections. Well I go into the Widget area and I try to do some changes. Well apparently something has gone batshit crazy with my theme because I can not drag and drop widgets like I used to. Let me rephrase that, I can drag them from the widget area to the Main sidebar area just fine, but I can not arrange them in the order I want, but I can not drag and drop them into any of the other areas like the Secondary sidebar area or the Footer areas. Well isn’t that just a kick in the teeth. So I do what any sane person does I look up my issue on the support forums, three hours later I find no answers.
So I stop and give my brain some rest, and come up with an idea. I will just switch to my second choice in Themes that will work right? Nope! Same deal. So I decide to let my brain rest again. Then it hits me, how can two themes be broken with the same issues in widgets, so I fire up Firefox and it works just fine. Ok great, I double-check my other browsers, yep Chrome works fine too so the issue is with IE9. I love IE9 I really do but it has some deep seeded issues with WordPress that Dr. Phil couldn’t even work out!
You may say well just use Chrome or Firefox, well damn it I don’t want to! I like IE9, don’t judge me. So I go through my plug-ins, nothing new has been added so why all the trouble? I clean my cache and cookies and still nothing. I finally just say F it and fix the blog back to its original state in Chrome. So my options at this point are keep using IE9 and just not update the look of my blog at all or use IE9 but use Chrome to change the look of my blog. This is what I get for wanting to make my blog look nice. I am frustrated and cranky now and the time I spent on this crap has taken away from my writing of Zanders next day which is due in a few days.
Oh, I almost forgot while checking other browsers I noticed I had some responses from comments I made on others blogs and my own that I didn’t get while on IE9. So there is that issue now too. This is just peachykeenrific!
If anyone else is having a similar problem and has fixed it, please let me know because I am the type of person who will not do anything else until I fix this craptasticness.
Thank you in advance.
