SOMEcontrast IE issue solved

Finally, the IE problem not displaying SOMEcontrast.com posts was solved yesterday. Let me take you into a brief of what exactly happened.

At the beginning, SOMEcontrast was attacked by a web trojan that promotes other websites through code injection techniques. The code was injected into almost 400 PHP files I have found in the backedup files Yousef have provided to us (Hamad, and Me). So, the plan was to get a new more secured hosting plan, trasnfer SOMEcontrast.com to the new host, install a fresh copy of WordPress latest version, migrate both posts & comments database and finally images and templates.

Hamad did the hosting and domain part, and I handled the data migration part. And since I was using FireFox, everything seemed ok, I jumped to google chrome just to confirm the template compatibility.. and TADAA.. everything is OK.

SOMEcontrast goes live, and two days later I got a call from Yousef telling me that his readers cannot view posts via IE.. and only IE! I did a little research and found out that IE actually had a million billion trillion issues with WordPress! DAMN YOU MICROSOFT! I did everything as adviced in the WP support forums, but still no use… that was through almost 4? 5 weeks?!

And yesterday… I got another call from Yousef while I was packing my stuff and getting ready to leave my office..

Yousef: Nasser 3endek explorer?
Nasser: ee 3endi.. laish?
Yousef: ba6lah o desh somecontrast.. shoofa yeba6el wela la?
Nasser: ok la7tha.. *tik tik tik* !! ba66aal!!
Yousef: hahahahaaaa
Nasser: Shesalfa?! shlon?!
Yousef: code ghala6 eb wa7ed min el flash Ads!
Nasser: LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.. 7asset nafsi ghabi…

Seriously guys… I felt stupid for not thinking about a “MISSING SEMICOLON IN A JAVASCRIPT CODE” while I was scanning every single character in 600+ php files…

That’s it… :\
