    i have created a portfolio with this plugin. But in Internet Explorer you see the small images sqeeuzed in eachtother. So you don't see the nice little picks you see when you use for example safari or firefox. What did i do wrong and how can i resolve this?

    Thanks a lot!

    Hey itsamodesign - I'm also using a theme from Elegant Themes. I just posted in their support forum under the Aggregate theme topic if you want to watch that one.

    Additional info: the problem only exists with compatibility view disabled, at least for me.

    I had this same problem a while back. For me it was only on Internet Explorer 8. I HATE Internet Explorer! It works fine on IE9. Unfortunately if you are running Win XP you can't upgrade.

    Here is how I solved the problem. Forgive me but it has been awhile and I don't have all the details fresh in my mind. I had to add some code to the Stylesheet (style.css) file.

    .ngg-gallery-thumbnail {

    This basically forces the browser to allocate space for the thumbnails. The code says 208px but I am able to make 800px thumbs for my panoramas at this setting.I have the Mantra theme so all I had to do is add the code to the Custom CSS box on the Mantra settings page.

    You can see the results on the link below. Before I added the code these images were all on one row with each image scrunched to about 10px wide.
    (I am reworking my site so this link may only work for a few more days)

    I hope this helps you. I'm not well versed in PHP or CSS but I dug around and found this workaround.

    Good Luck

    neildon - I mean this in the least creepy way possible that a guy can say this on the internet to someone he's never met:


    I've dug for a workaround for a few days and couldn't come up with one. This worked flawlessly!


    PS - Great photography. I particularly enjoy your wildlife shots.
