An Odd Quirk

On August 16, 2011, in News, by Patrick Hester

Huh.  Weird.

After posting the interview with Charles Day, I received a message from him that he couldn’t actually see the post.  I looked in Firefox and Safari, the two browsers I use the most, and everything looked fine.  Assuming this meant he was using Internet Explorer, I checked out the post there and was stunned to see that the post was completely blank/broken.  In a panic, I clicked on past episodes to see if they, too, were broken in IE, but they weren’t.


Then I looked at the post itself.  Nothing weird that should break a browser.  I changed a ‘&’ for a ‘and’, saved it, checked the post in IE – still broken.  I played around with the text and the layout.  Still broken.

What the hell?

On a lark, I added a test post.  Our theme uses a next/last link at the top of each post, linking to the next post or the last one.  I don’t know why I thought that might effect things, but I was willing to try anything.

Sure as shit, when I added the test post, the episode appeared in IE.

What an odd little quirk…
