IE + Blogger
Mmm.... I hadn't been having any critical issues with my blog. But lately, I've got some queries from my readers that Disqus, the comment system implemented on my blog, wasn't fair enough for them. My apologies to everyone who had the issues, but they were kind enough to come back and comment again too. How loyal and supportive they are? :)
I've been testing my blog on different browsers and ran through the source code, as I can't stand when I hear about issues. It took me several hours until I find Internet Explorer seems to play hide and seek with me. The problem was, at times, Disqus wasn't loading at all.
First, my thought was, it has something to do with Disqus alone. Then I've found that Disqus already addressed the issue too. Eventhough all the web browsers compatible with Disqus, Internet Explorer needed a real fix.
Let's Dig It!
Actually, Blogger has no problem displaying content on web browsers. You can refer to browser compatibility chart to find what kind of browsers and operating systems works with Blogger. But issues may come into play when you incorporate third-party tools or services with your blog. Mainly if they require different prerequisites.
Currently, when users view Blogger blogs through Internet Explorer, Blogger templates are instructed to render content in Internet Explorer 7 mode by defining below rendering mode meta tag.
Even if you don't have any issues with your Blogger blog right now, you can go ahead and apply following fix. If you intend to do so, make sure everything is working properly after applying the fix. You can always revert back by pasting the one line of code. It does the magic.
