Update: I think it’s fixed now. I removed the coComment box that appeared at the bottom of the sidebar, and now things load fine in IE 6.0. I’ve been running that coComment box there for a while now, but they recently did a major upgrade and something entailed in that upgrade was causing the problem. Qumana is absolved, and thank goodness, because I’m really coming to like the software (and the fact that the developers actually respond in person to user issues).
But please do report any other wonky browser behavior to me, and I’ll try to do what I can. Thanks for your patience!
The earlier parts of this post are below the fold:
The browser issues I reported earlier this morning appear to be for real. I am currently using Internet Explorer 6.0 on a WinXP machine, and when I call up the main CO9s page, the image header loads and the sidebar loads, but the posts don’t come up. Instead, IE sort of freezes up, and what’s worse, the entire computer slows down. So some kind of memory issue is happening with the most recent posts.
I’ve contacted my hosting service for technical advice, but I have a sneaking suspicion it’s got something to do with Qumana, since this issue wasn’t happening until two days ago. If so, it’d be too bad, because Qumana is a nice piece of software. But perhaps there’s a formatting issue in Qumana’s blog editor that causes major problems with IE 6.0. If anybody, especially the Qumana people, want to weigh in on that, it’d be appreciated.
On the other hand, I’m now noticing that even though I am using WordPress’ built-in editor to write this post, I can’t get it to preview.
I’m considering going back this morning and removing all the posts I’ve made with Qumana, running them through a simple text editor to remove the formatting, and then reposting using the straight-up WordPress editor. If so, then obviously most of the recent articles will not be viewable for a while, so bear with me.
Anybody having this sort of problem with a browser othen than IE? Or on a non-Windows operating system?
