I downloaded a premade template for my blog. The problem is, that I found out that it doesn't work correctly in all browsers. I tried to go to the site I downloaded the template, but there is no support offered. I also asked Blogger Support, but they referred me to a form that specializes in HTML/CSS support. So here I am. Is there any way someone can help me make this template cross browser compatiable?

I realized I had a problem when I was trying to post a test comment. It goes through the process but doesn't post the comments. It does in FireFox but not in IE (Which is the browser I tend to use most.). Making my blog functional is the primary concern. However...I did notice that the graphics look much better in Firefox as well and would love (while not as important as function) to have it look the same in all browsers.

You will have to have a different design for each browser compatibility issue if its a concern. and use a code at top of PHP or javascript that figures out which browser your site visitor is using, and direct them to the proper code snippet for that section.

Using something such as a PHP include or handler file for only the sections of your page that has browser compatibility issues. rather than coding multiple landing pages.

If you go this way, then make sure something reasonable happens when you encounter an unknown browser, when JavaScript is disabled/unavailable, or when a server-side script receives no user-agent string.

Hm. Sounds like browser sniffing could be the cause of the current problem...

FYI the template doesn't work in older gecko either. When I try to comment the Comment As options aren't available.
