I have a WordPress blog site, currently using the Picolight theme, with a header photo and a background pattern on left and right sides of the text area. It loads and displays fine in Firefox and Safari (on laptops and iPhones) but I've been told it often doesn't show up on other phones using Windows Live Mail, and that there are sometimes problems on PCs with Internet Explorer.
On Windows mail the photos show up but the text area is covered with some kind of textile-like pattern, and no text.
On Explorer the photos again show up but otherwise the background pattern sometimes covers the whole screen, so there's no text. I say 'sometimes' because some people have opened it on Explorer and it's shown up OK, so the problem seems intermittent/unstable.
A lot of similar queries on this forum seem to have been due to pasting posts into WordPress from Word. I haven't done this, all the Posts were written directly into WP.
Many thanks for any suggestions
