HELP!! Do My Blogger Posts Look Weird to You??


Since I changed my blog layout a few weeks back, a few bloggers have told me that my posts overlap. and it is hard to find where to leave a comment???

Has this happened to you when you look at my posts?  If so, do you use Firefox or Internet Explorer or something else?

The reason I ask is that my posts look just fine to me at home (I use Firefox), but at work they look like they overlap and the photos look strange as well...(we use Internet Explorer at work).

So I am CONFUSED?? Can anyone help with suggestions to make my posts look normal on ALL browsers? Thanks in advance!

  2. Oh dear you have lost me with all this technological talk. Speaking from my own experience, I haven't had any problems with your blog posts and they do not look at all strange to me. I didn't even realise that this problem existed until you mentioned it.

  3. looks good to me, but I use Foxfire too. Now at work, we use an OLD version of IE and even my blog looks awful.
    I just don't worry about it because I assume most folks have a more updated version.

  4. Yes, the images/photos in your posts are outside of their frames. Just shifted over. Internet Explorer.

  5. The only thing I see is your header is at the left margin,but that could be what you want.
    Looks fine to me otherwise.

  7. I use Safari and it all looks good to me. I scrolled down several posts and didn't see anything unusual.

  8. Diane, I use Internet Explorer and, yes, they do have an overlapping thing going on. I just have to make sure I click on the right spot. It's those "if you like it, you might try...." thumbnails that take a bit to load and then it overlaps.

    And, your blog is not the only one where I've seen this issue. However, I only click over to the actual blog if I want to comment. Otherwise, I read all the posts in Google Reader.

  10. I have no suggestions as to how to fix this...sorry. :( However, I CAN tell you that I use the Opera web browser, and I don't have any problems. I didn't know there was a problem until you said so.

  11. Looks fine from my iPad using Safari. I'll go up and check from my home computer which has IE.

  15. If I let your blog load entirely, I see no problems. Mid-way through loading there is some overlap with the "if you like this" box, BUT it corrects itself for me. IE8 user :)

  16. I use IE and have noticed some strange things going on in a number of blogs lately...so you're not the only one!

  19. "Can anyone help with suggestions to make my posts look normal on ALL browsers?"

    YES, I can! You need to use WordPress, rather than Blogger. Once you switch, you will wonder how you tolerated Blogger for so long! These kinds of issues can easily be fixed with a WordPress theme that has built-in functionality across all browsers.

  20. I use IE and I'm afraid that there are a few posts that overlap :-( I'm afraid I don't know anything about blogger and so can't help. I hope you work it out soon.

  21. I just looked with both browsers and don't see any overlapping. I hope you're able to solve the problem soon.

  22. I use both IE and Firefox. Your posts look fine to me. I'm using IE v.8 though. I'm using the same Blogger template as you, and I know that it looks odd and a bit off kilter when viewed with older versions of IE. Hope this helps!

  23. The picture location isn't within the white box. But I don't know how to fix that.

  24. Diane, your blog and posts look fine to me, but I am on Firefox, too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. No problems in Chrome. I'm bummed that you had to pull out the angry/frustrated face again so soon. ;)

  26. I use Firefox and everything looks great for me.

  27. Your posts and blog look perfectly fine in Firefox. I know a lot of times people have trouble viewing blogs in IE - that was why I had switched.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I use IE 8 and there is overlapping. But normally I read your posts in Google Reader and they're fine there. But if I click over to comment or something, yes, there is overlapping.

  29. Looks fine to me - in fact, I like your new layout!

    I use Firefox on a Mac.

  30. I use Firefox and everything looks good to me! Good luck getting to the root of the problem.

  31. I use Internet Explorer and the top of the comments do overlap the bottom of your post.

  32. Looks just fine with safari. I just changed to this template, too, and now wonder if mine looks strange to some people...

  33. I use IE and once everything loads it seems to fix itself.

  34. Thanks everyone for taking the time to tell me whether my blog looks normal or weird. It seems Internet Explorer is the problem by what everyone has said. I'm not sure if it's worth playing with as I think most read my blog in Google Reader and that seems fine??

    Thanks again....grrrrrrrrrrrrr

  35. Diane - IE is a huge problem for me too, more importantly, old versions of IE. My blog acts very strange under old IE, but using the latest version and other browsers, I have no problems. Good luck!

  36. This time the overlap moved by the time I read the post but the Wednesday's title came into the later post!!!!

  37. I'm on Safari and they look fine to me.

  38. Diane,
    I too use FireFox and your blog looks fine. Did you use a blogger template or did you work on the HTLM? It could be Blogger's templates do not work well with Explorer.
    If you cannot figure it out let me know and I will ask my wiz of a kid if he has any answers for you.

  39. I'm on FF and your site looks beautiful. We need to start a campaign to wean everyone off IE, including our employers! (Mine is still using IE 6, but they block all social sites, so it doesn't really matter to me anyway).

  40. Hmm, it looks fine to me - I use a Mac and Safari at home.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Firefox and it looks great. I'm sure it is IE and not you!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Looks fine to me... I'm using Firefox.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I use Google Chrome and it looks great. No problem here! I have no idea what's going on sadly :(

  44. Diane, this is frustrating, isn't it? It looks fine to me, and I use Firefox.

    I do know that my website is created on IE and can only be adjusted on that browser...and when I go there with Firefox, just to look, everything is skewed.

  45. Sari--it is a Blogger Template (one of the new ones they just offered)

    Laurel...that is good info to know; thanks

  46. Finally getting to my home computer, which uses IE, to check. On my iPad (Safari), it looks fine, but with IE the pictures are outside the white box. It doesn't bother me though, and I wouldn't worry about it. I've noticed this in a few other blogs and didn't even think about it until you brought it up. Kind of sounds like that's what you've decided too, since it's such a minor issue.

  47. It looks fine to me but I use Firefox. I hate IE ... my blog never looks as good on it.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Did you get to fix this? Old versions of IE screw up our blog appearance. The latest one is fine (though I noticed one commenter mentioned using IE 8 and still seeing overlaps - not sure why it happens). It looks fine in Chrome as well. It's kinda hard to fix this problem unless you keep changing themes and test in all browsers at a time. IE usually messes up a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Aths...it is still an issue with various version of IE, including IE 8. If using IE and you wait until everything FULLY loads, it isn't quite as messed up looking...GRRRRRRRR
