Lovely theme. I’m working on a site for a friend (www.papertrail.org.uk) and the site functions normally on iphone / Firefox / Safari etc but when viewed on IE8 it looks a real mess. Featured images don’t re-size, the header is chopped off. My frustration is that the University my friend works at only uses IE8 so it’s the reason I got this template. Any suggestions as to what might be wrong?
This is indeed something that needs fixing, even though it’s still a bit sad that the places where the future of the society gets educated are using the crappiest browsers in existence :) I’ve managed to correct the background resizing feature for portfolio items, yet I am not sure I understood the header issue (the header looks fine in my IE8 emulator). Could you provide a screenshot illustrating the problem?
Regarding the background fix – I’ve included it into the upcoming theme update (to version 1.2), along with several new features and other bug fixes; the new version should be live within 24 hours, but if you need the fix faster, I can send you the files and explain what to do with them.
Thanks for responding so quickly and I appreciate the update. I managed to find out that if the images are sized only slightly larger than the size of the portfolio boxes then IE8 responds normally with the template.
