  1. Hi there, I do think your web site could possibly be having web browser
    compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your
    site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening in IE,
    it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, great blog!

    • Hi Simon,

      I am aware of a few issues. Unfortunately I am crazy busy at the moment during the days but I do try and crush a few bugs each evening. If you have the time, can you please log the IE issues (or any issues you find) on the GitHub repository – WDW GitHub. The more details you provide the better.

      Thanks again for taking the time to notify me.

      Greatly appreciate it!

      Cheers,
      Jake
