Date: August 5, 2012 Author: ang Category: How To Blog Tutorials Tags: , , Comments: 0

There is an easy way to fix most problems your Tumblr blog might be having with Internet Explorer. IE tends to be a problematic browser and sometimes your Tumblr blog won't display correctly in it like it does Chrome or Firefox. Using the code snippets below, you can force IE to emulate a previous version of itself. In other words, you can make IE9 emulate IE8, IE7, etc. This can solve many Tumblr Internet Explorer issues because chances are, the Tumblr template author designed the theme to work in IE8 meanwhile everyone's using a different, more current version of IE.
