I need a few people to go look at my blog with Internet Explorer and tell me if you can read the writing part. Friday someone was looking at my blog at work and the writing was so tiny you couldn't read it. I tried it on mine and with Google it reads fine. With IE it was too tiny again and the pictures are smaller too.

If you guys have a problem with it in IE I might have to choose a different blog theme. I looked at other peoples Wordpress blogs with IE and it was fine but they had different themes than mine.

I will check back in the morning here. Gotta get off soon and go put ice on my arm.

I know you didn't ask about Safari, but there are some of us who use it - I was able to read it fine, although it was a little small. Good luck!

I figured I'd take a look at it on Chrome too, to see if it looked the same as on Safari. First time the pictures didn't load and I got the hateful "OH SNAP" message (this is why I despise Chrome, I don't go on for weeks and the first time I do it freezes up). Second time it wouldn't load at all.

Again, not what you asked about but maybe useful to know.

I still need some others to look at this with IE please.

This is how it looks for me, The small print is virtually unreadable.

I had to post twice since I can only embed one photo per post.

Here is how it looks in Google for me, it's readable:

Yes, it is smaller... The attached image is Firefox on the left and IE on the right.

Thanks Amanda. I know you have wordpress also. I guess I'll have to choose a different theme. I'll get you guys to double check me on that when I'm done. If I hadn't been seeing it on someone elses computer I would have gone along no telling how long with some people not being able to read it at all.

Darn it! I liked that theme.

I just looked and it is small text. I have IE.

It looks really nice, I hate to see you have to change everything.

Thanks Barb, did you view it with Internet Explorer?

Carolyn, It's not too difficult but does require some time and work. I usually change my theme frequently because I like so many of them. But I actually liked the arrangement of this one and was going to stick with it awhile.

Thanks for helping me with this everyone.

Sherry did you check to see if the font was customizable? Sometimes it is...

Thanks Amanda. I didn't see anywhere on that one to customize without upgrading.

I know some of them have it, but not that one. I switched to another one for now that had a similar layout so it wouldn't be too much trouble to change. Of course I haven't been able to look at it in Explorer yet.

Sherry I just looked and while the text is smaller than in Firefox, it is only marginally smaller. Barely noticeable!

I'm a day late and I think I'm looking at your new blog because it reads just fine, nice big readable words. I like the new background, it goes really well with the colors you use in your paintings.
