    I am checking out the plugin on many web versions and for some reason I am not getting my content to display on IE8.

    Any idea why it´s not display the text. IE7 and all MAC browsers work....

    Curious :)

    http://b-e-m.org/ - click mailing list on the far right of the menu bar in the middle of the page. Should have a form to fill out with text on top.

    Thanks for the work! Love it.

    I'm not very familiar with IE compatibility of the FancyBox script. I would suggest you try to download from fancybox.net and implement it manually to check that it's not a bug in 1.2.6 (version used in this WordPress plugin).

    An update for the plugin with version 1.3.1 of the fancybox script is also in the works but i can't confirm a release date.

    Sorry i can't be of more help at the moment.

    One quick question. Any idea why I can get it to work on 32 bit Windows IE8 but 64bit windows it gives me issues,

    Is there something with the bit versions?

    I am having the same issue with both ie7 and ie8. as a double check, I looked at Ntarantino's site and I get a blank in both browsers but ff works fine.

    See here for an answer to the IE 8 issue.

    If your browser mode in IE 8 is set to IE 8 and your document mode is set to IE 8 standards, then this will resolve the issue.

    Moskis, are we able to incorporate this fix into the next version of the plugin?
