    I've build a site the couple 2 days and today I wanted to check how it looks in different browser. Surprise. Explorer 9 doesn't show like it should...or at least like Firefox, Chrome and Opera.

    Any ideeas how to fix this? If there is some quick fix pls help me with some resources. I don't want to change the theme as it looks like I want

    There 's no one fix catches all. Could be a multitude of things. Use the debugger to see what 's going on and fix accordingly. While IE9 is much better in terms of standards compliance, it 's not perfect.

    If you are using javascript libraries, make sure they are IE9 compatible.

    I went with a nulled theme as I want to keep costs at minimum untill the site makes some money. Might this be the reason?

    if it is a new theme - IE9 might not correctly display/handle HTML5 elements and/or CSS3 - there are javascript librarys wich provide a fallback: modernizr and html5shiv.

    did you check the paid version of the theme out as well? Quite often paid themes have a demo...

    What exactly is not displaying correctly?

    cheers

    That was pretty funny. But it is still used by a bunch of idiots worldwide and that is bad for bussiness.
    I installed a operating system yesterday and the idiot told me 4 times to install a chat messenger. For God's sake, it takes 30 sec to install it urself. It wasn't the biggest issue to think about ever never..ever. You just type donwload shit in google and it pops up.
