    Hi, I’ve been using the Maparaan Theme for over a year and it always works great on FireFox but it’s performance on Explorer is spotty. It often comes out disjointed. Is it possible to fix this or is there another of your themes that works better with both browsers? Thanks!

      Hi Kate,
      We do try to make the themes work across as many browsers as possible. Unfortunately, IE has been known to give web developers a “big trouble”. If you really need to get it to work on IE, the best possible way to fix the issue would be to upgrade it to a higher version, like at least IE8.
