I’m sorry is this is a repeat question, but I don’t really know the best search terms to look this up.
As far as I know this issue came about after updating to WordPress 3.2
On this site: http://sideeffectsdesign.com/ the background behind the text in the slider is not showing in IE9. It displays fine in Firefox, Chrome etc. I am not sure about IE8 because I do not have it on my machine.
Can you suggest a fix?
we released an update for Twicet some time ago which should fixes IE9 bugs (slider, cufon headlines, etc.). You can download it at http://themeforest.net
An update, this did nothing to fix the problem in IE9 or IE8. Can you give me any other suggestions? I urgently need to get this fixed.
Comparing the CSS, I must have added the background box behind the featured text myself using a GIF. I just added it as a background to featured_text. The effect seems to work fine in every browser but IE. How can I achieve the same effect in IE?
Ok, I figured this out from a tip I found on a forum. To get the same effect across all browsers, I used this code in the style:
/* Fallback for web browsers that doesn’t support RGBa */
background: rgb(0, 0, 0) transparent;
/* RGBa with 0.6 opacity */
background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
/* For IE 5.5 – 7*/
/* For IE 8*/
-ms-filter: “progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr=#99000000, endColorstr=#99000000)”;
Damn sorry for another update. Solution above does not work in IE8. Still trying to find a way :(
