    Hi, I've got the latest version of both GD Star Rating and WP and I'm not using any other methods to fix the IE6 PNG issue.

    I'm getting a grey block appear around the stars. Any ideas?

    Oh yes, and I do have the "Use IE6 PNG transparency fix." checkbox ticked.

    Unfortunatly this fix is only partial and on some builds of IE is not working at all. Hopefully IE6 will die out soon, and people will either use some normal browser like Opera or Firefox or they will switch to newer IE7 or IE8. Every new thing for web has problems working on IE6.

    The only sure way to avoid this problem is to use gif icon sets instead of PNG. Selection of gif sets is available on the plugin website. Also there is a tutorial on how to make more sets on the wbesite and in the user guide.

    Yes, I'll be glad to see the back of IE6 - unfortunately, at the moment, it still appears 18.5% of the web world seem happy with it!

    When I've downloaded the gifs do I need to set anything up in the Settings or simply add that folder to the GD Ratings folder?

    There is a tutorial about adding new stars set on the website. If you add set into plugin folder, when plugin is updated, you will loose additional sets. So I set up another location for additional sets that will be safe from upgrade. Detailed instructions are in that turorial.
