[Plugin: WP Nivo Slider] Doesnt seem to work in IE8?

  • I’m not using this as a plugin but rather as part of a theme (it’s build into it). I ended up finding this plugin in exploring to see if there’s a fix for this problem. I have the same issue…doesn’t work in IE8. Love the way it looks within the template but I’m going to have to move on if I can’t be seen by the folks using IE8. Would love to see a fix for it.

    In my tests it worked perfectly in IE8.

    I’ve fixed it since this post, but thanks 🙂 Someone sent me instructions for a work around and I let the template developer know about the problem and the fix.

    ->lisaisball – I’m having the same problem, any way you can post the workaround that you got?

    Here’s the workaround I received:

    open the file
    jquery.nivo.css
    (it’s in the public_html/wp-content/themes/potassiumific/css folder)
    at the top of the page you’ll see the code:
    #slideshow img {
    position:absolute;
    top:0px;
    left:0px;
    display:none;
    }
    you just need to change display:none to display:block and it should fix it.
    you’ll need to access the file using FTP as it is not editable via the WP admin area.

    This worked beautifully for me – but again, I wasn’t using the plugin so not sure if it plays out the same using it or not. I love my theme now after getting this little problem fixed, after years of struggling with the look of the site I have finally been able to focus on content and fine tuning.
