    I have implemented this slider on a site I'm working on, and everything is working great great in IE7 and IE9, Chrome, and Firefox... but not IE8.

    Here's the temp link to the site:

    Any help or ideas are appreciated. Cheers!

    The issues isn't that the slider doesn't work, it is that your 'div.banner' element that contains the slider isn't showing up because of some CSS issues. Remove the 'float:left;' from that element and you will see it show up in IE8.

    I've found a solution among the CSS including the float issue in IE8.

    Thanks for the hasty response!

    I'm not saying that removing the float is the ultimate solution, just that you can see the slider working properly when you do. In IE, I believe the solution would be to float some of the parent elements as well, but I will leave that up to you or a CSS expert.

    The solution ended up being to remove the float completely and refine the CSS elements that spoke to the surrounding divs. Thanks again for the responses! If you're curious what the slider looks like in a responsive format, take a look at the mods we implemented here: http://clients.chromemedia.com/rosemount/

    Looks great! My goal for next release is to make the slider responsive by default.

    I'm having the same issue with IE8, but I don't know how to remove the "float:left". Any help would be appreciated.

    I am using this shortcode:

    [promoslider category="home" width="600px" height="337px"]

    Website is http://AtlantaCatholicSingles.org.

    Thanks in advance!

    @larryforlife,

    The issue you have is completely different. I assume you are referring to the images not properly scaling in IE8? Try adding this to line 762 of your active theme's style.css file under the #content img rules:

    width: auto;

    Thanks Micah. I just saw your response tonight. I implemented your solution. My friend is the one having the problem (with IE8). I'll check with him to see if this fixes it. Were you able to test my website with IE8?

    Thanks,
    Larry

    I just checked with him. It works!

    BTW, I'm assuming that the "fix" will need to be applied again when Weaver II is updated. Is this correct?

    Thanks!
    Larry

    @larryforlife,

    You are correct. Since the extra css is added to your theme, an update to your theme would override it.

    Thanks Micah. The fix worked, but it broke after the latest upgrade. The "fix" isn't working now.

    Here is the location of the file:

    /wp-content/themes/weaver-ii/style.css

    I just noticed that v1.2.4 of Weaver-ii is out, so I downloaded that and modified style.css. Didn't fix the problem though. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!
