    When I visit my website using Google Chrome is working pretty good but when I use any other Internet browser the pictures will resize the text will remove itself and it look terrible. What should I do to fix it?

    Maybe there are no really any problem, because blog templates are now made to fit for any browsers. Did you try to refresh the page?

    Just tested and everything is fine in firefox, chrome, IE, and safari. Try clearing your cache/history and seeing if that helps.

    Have you tried using a different theme? Looking at the source, I can tell you that you're not using XHTML fully, which is what you need for things to look primarily the same on different browsers. You should start by looking at what the W3C validator points out:

    http://validator.w3.org/

    You have paragraph's </p> where there is no opening, you have close divs </div> where there is no opening.

    Fix your code and if that doesn't work, then try a diff theme...

    PS. The site works with Chrome and Firefox but the third box moves to a 2nd row (under the Basic Package) with IE9

    Looks fine in IE8 and FF... Just a heads up, you may catch some heat for posting your link.

    I did clear the cache/history but still nothing - Visit the site http://youtubestore.net/test-page/ via Google chrome and you see that the images and the PayPal buttons are in the right position and look pretty good but then I use Opera the images and the PayPal buttons moves to the right side for no reason or when I use IE the images will resize :(

    I did also ask for help in the Word Press forums and someone told me I need to Validate the site but don't know where to go and what to do as I'm not the best one as on codding.

    I have this same problem for a site I've built for a friend using wordpress. Chrome shows a lovely looking layout, with a nice shadow effect on the slider; whereas it looks dull and crappy in IE. Can't for the life of me work out what it is. Cross browser testing is a nightmare.

    Lol... it's funny cause it's MUCH better now than it was! I still remember the nightmares with HTML2 and trying to get something to look the same between Internet Exploder and Netscrape... lmao and what was even worse was that they didn't even render the same between different versions of IE! We'd try hacking our code, trying to find the balance that would give us what we wanted people to see and look the same on the different browsers. Sometimes we'd give up and created a javascript to detect the browser and display different pages depending on which one they were using. Really happy I don't have to worry about that nearly as much now!
