    Is this a retina display image? Make sure that if they are that under “Appearance” “Theme Options” That you have selected to downsize the image on normal screen devices or it won’t show up.

    I had it unchecked. Just checked it off and it didn’t help.



    Hmmm try adding this to your css

    #site title {
    width: 100%;


    missed the hyphen make sure its #site-title not #site title

    It worked!!! Thanks so much!

    Could you please let me know the reasoning behind it? I have some other issues in IE8. Maybe if I know the underlying issue I might figure out the other problems.



    I believe the issue lies within the browser itself. IE8 has a hard time with multiple css3 images. It doesn’t render them correctly. So by adding the above css3 we forced it to show the image at a certain width. I could be wrong about this, but from what I have read it is just that IE is not so good css3 images…same goes for IE7 oh well!

    This was a great help. I also had category icons on each of my posts that were not showing in IE8. So I added the same style to that image and they showed perfectly.

    Thanks again!

    Now I need to fix the border, shading issue and I should be all set! I wish people just used the latest browsers by habit!



    On your wrapper? What is the problem?

    From what I understand, IE up to 9 doesn’t understand css3 styling for border-radius or box-shadow which I am using a lot. The wrapper, sidebar menus, comment boxes etc. You could see the differences if you look at my site in chrome for instance. I found a plug in for it (IE CSS3 Support) but have trouble making it work, getting some denied access to the plug in files error.

    The plugin relies on the CSS3 styles to be within the style.css file – Is that why it’s not working?

    They are in my css style sheet and I have linked it to the parent as well as child sheet.

    The error I get is the access to the actual plug in files, like below.
