I usually check this site as soon as I arrive home from work. It was running good when I opened it as usual, but not until I opened it again in the evening to write a post. How would you feel if you meet this spooky message when you open your site:
Internet Explorer cannot open this site http://sitename.com
In addition to probable solutions found regarding this problem, those who are using Firefox are not affected by this. You have the reason to continue browsing sites with Firefox. I also have Firefox installed so I could prove it right. But I feel comfortable with Internet Explorer and don’t ask me why, cos I don’t know exactly why.
This should not be my post today, actually. And I could have replied to comments by now. But due to this unexpected abnormality of my site, I felt compelled to bring out this relatively provoking problem that other site owners may encounter.
Goodnight for now…
ganyan tlga ang IE. naisulat ko na yan nung december pa. kung IE 6 madugo ang errors. pero sa IE 7 mejo improved na. yup, i tried opening your site and i can’t open it. minsan kasi pag slow ang server mo o may errors sa php config nila nagkakaganyan. don’t wori, since i drop by here daily, i’ll let you know kung ano observations ko.

My solution goes like;
[1.] Make a simple notepad file
[2.] Name it LOGBOOK
[4.] Whenever you see such a problem like one explained above then do one thing just start reversing the actions backward and one by one. For example remove last action, Clear your cookies, check again your site, see if the problem exists then move on to remove the next action you did (previous to the last one), refresh your cookies again, and see if the problem still persist
[5.] If you see on removing/reversing any action the things goes absolutely fine then you must under stand this action is culprit and creating problem, remove it permanently and start putting back all the other actions in line as you did before.
[6.] Remember, if you are not very good at php, java, html then you must keep the record of your actions in a LOGBOOK, it helps a lot believe me.
[7.] It will also help you when you need to replace your site theme with absolutely new theme.
[8.] Frequently back your WordPress posts.
Ohh I feel I have written a whole new post here :-), anyway, keep blogging everybody.

I’ve had in the past a few problems accessing some of my blog buddies sites but they eventually came back online, so I guess they must have sorted it out. But it’s good to now these problems exist and at least I can be aware of them in the future.
Tried just now your blog can be open with IE ~
I think I missed that post of yours, Jessie, as I did less bloghopping last December. Or I just forgot you had it posted. Thank you, fren, for the concern. Yes, that script had slowed down this site, too.
Shanker, I should give you my password next time, haha! Thanks for this very little info, I will try this Logbook, too.
I’ve also encountered this kind of problem when I viewed some sites, Nick, but I didn’t expect it to happen to my site until now.
Marlene, I didn’t notice that problem since I am using Firefox. I hardly use IE.
