Getting the Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Site Operation Aborted error on your WordPress blog? It might be your theme...

Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Website Operation Aborted
If you're getting the "Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Site Operation Aborted" error on your WordPress blog or website like I was it might be the WordPress theme you're using.




"Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Site Operation Aborted"error...


...was happening on my CpTimes.com blog about the top-selling products online -- I noticed it when I finally popped over to IE to check out my site (I'm more fond of Firefox as a web browser) and was horrified to hear the beep and see the box pop up first saying "Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Site" and then even more pissed to see the "Operation Aborted" box force any website visitors trying to get to my site be forced to close it down -- instead of buy the product they wanted!

So I did some Googling around -- and that's how I found Lyndi's Nice2All themes and read that she makes sure that her themes work on WordPress blogs that have a lot of pages, like mine did.

It was time for a change anyway, so I downloaded one of her themes and tweaked it around like I like it (gotta put those post titles before the blog title so you'll get a better click-thru rate on Google -- and put your post titles in h1 tags) and voila!

Have mercy the "Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Site Operation Aborted" error went away, and my web traffic went back up.

So don't forget to check your website on many different browsers for the "Internet Explorer Cannot Open the Internet Site Operation Aborted" error and make sure your theme can handle your WordPress website.

This is one of the reasons I am all for having a standalone domain that I can add the plugin wp Super Cache to. http://ocaoimh.ie/wp-super-cache/ I agree that it can be the theme that is not compatible but it can simply be the code of the blog as well.

When I test my blog I look at it in IE, Firefox, And Safari to be sure that everything looks good.

I prefer Firefox but sometimes its revisions can wig out on assorted internet applications too. Like Glen said it's all in the testing when you make revisions.

By the way Paula, claim your Lemonade Award on MartyBLOGs today. Have a good one.
