[resolved] FireFox fine, not working well in IE (6 posts)

    Hey guys,

    So, I decided to take a look at my website using IE, and discovered that when I look at my comic ( http://www.zomgrofl.com , if you want to take a look), and click the thumbnail, the picture does not increase in size on Internet Explorer, but on FireFox, the website works fine. Because I don't want to leave a lot of visitors in the dust, is there a way of fixing this?

    Normally if you go to a file ending in .jpg the browser would expect a jpeg. For example in IE . . . http://zomgrofl.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/cache/db1b4524064686d0ea47014374883d7c.jpg
    leads to your image. But your ".jpg" file is actually php and html. I don't think that will work.

    I think the page name might be the problem. Which explains also why it can't be validated and might help explain the long loading time.

    Hmm.. what do you suggest I do? I am using the AWSOM PixGallery plugin, and I don't believe (or I may have overlooked) it gives me a lot of options to choose how the images go from thumbnail to full view..

    I posted a separate topic asking if there was a way I could have two different series going on at the same time.. like one series for my blog and another series for my comics, that way they can be in separate categories and pages without my blog interrupting their series..

    I keep my hi-res or larger images in a different folder and just link to them from a smaller picture or thumbnail. I don't put them on a Page but that would work as long as the page does not end in .jpg.

    Maybe it is just an adjustment in your permalinks that needs to be made.

    Some stuff will not work right on IE so I decide it's not worth it. Even though IE sux you are better off finding designs that work as best as possibile in both. I'd prefer to have a lot of stuff on mine but I don't because IE screws it up.
