Thanks for this info, I’ve successfully installed your theme and checked it on my end, but the only thing I’m getting is that square thumbnail on the top left corner that acts as a featured image of that blog posts; the broken thumbnails in the related posts section — unfortunately — not appearing on my end.
But that doesn’t change anything, I’d still like to help you out here. If possible, I’d like to get back to you tomorrow with some more results and — hopefully — a viable solution. If possible, please bear with us.
And do let me know if you find something else (an extension or a plugin) that might be interfering with your thumbnails, or any other information that might help us figure out what’s actually going on. We really appreciate any feedback possible. Thanks!
Since we haven’t been able to replicate the problem on our end (we managed to get that square featured image on the top-left corner of our posts, but no broken thumbnails in the related posts section), I’d like to ask you, if possible, to list me the rest of the extension that your IE8 browser has installed, or what are the other plugins that you have installed on your WP Dashboard.
We really don’t know how to replicate your problem on our end, to be honest, but it is crucial that we do so, in order to fix the problem. Any additional feedback is more than welcome!
