Support » Fixing WordPress » Shrunken images in tables in IE 8 and earlier

    I’ve done a search (admittedly not exhaustive, as that looks like it would take forever) of the forum and have not found a solution to this specific problem.

    I’m redesigning a website that was initially designed with CMS Made Simple, and now a lot of images that are displayed in tables appear horizontally shrunken when viewed in Internet Explorer 8 or earlier versions of IE. (This problem does not appear in Firefox, Safari, or IE9.) The equivalent pages on the old site do not have this problem. Here is an example of a page on the old site and on the new site:

    Old site:

    New site:

    I’m using WordPress 3.1.4 with the Suffusion theme.

    The cause of the problem seems to be that there is no width specified for the table cells in question; table cells with a specified width display correctly. I could solve the problem by specifying a width for all of the table cells that currently lack it, but it would take an inordinate amount of time to edit all of the image tables on my site that way. I’m hoping that someone can suggest a global solution, since it seems there’s something about the WordPress or Suffusion settings that has created a problem that didn’t exist before.

    By the way, I’m acutely aware that my HTML/CSS skills are minimal, and I’m sure my code is ugly as sin. I’ve had to learn how to do a thousand things for our company on the fly and have not had the luxury of taking time to learn how to code properly. However, the HTML for the pages above does check out ok on the validator.

    Any help with this problem would be greatly appeciated, since I need to get the new site up and running ASAP.
