Our Sidebar Was “Wonky”

October 12th, 2005 | by Mike |

Now that Hell Yeah Bitch! .com is one of the huge throng of sites that are hosted on Dreamhost, I decided to go all out and enter us in the “Dreamhost Site of the Month”. All was good, untill I was reviewing the comments and I noticed that someone wrote: “Your sidebar is wonky.” I thought our sidebar was about as unwonky as a sidebar could get, but oh well each to their own.

That is until I looked at the site in Internet Explorer. Somehow I missed the fact that the sidebar was in fact wonky if you are visiting via IE. Damn, a little html add fixed it well enough, but it pissed me off for a few reasons. 1. Our sidebar was wonky, I didn’t realize it, and it cost us a higher rating on a contest that no one really knows or cares about. 2. I pride myself on making sites that are the same in Firefox, Safari and IE. This one wasn’t. 3. All the 39% of the people that come here via IE didn’t bother to tell me that the sidebar was wonky! Come on people, you can’t really think I wanted the sidebar to look like that can you!? Damn!

Anyway, the sidebar has been de-wonkified and I have officially typed “wonky” more than I ever thought I would in my life.
