I created a website and have used the genesis featured posts on my home page. In Firefox they are perfect, in internet explorer they are stretched and look terrible! I had set each image to display at 478 x 382, but IE displays modifies them to 226 x 382!
Anyone have an ideas? Please tell me there is a fix....November 28, 2012 at 10:20 pm #2214
First, can you supply a link to the site?
Now here's the thing about IE - MS refuses to accept that they aren't back in the 90's and no longer dominate the development of technology; with that said, I still pay attention to IE.
Here's the problem - you need to look at the version of IE you are using (pay attention to MS supporting that version) because MS isn't even standard between it's own versions (9 is almost usable, 8 , 7 are ok, 6 forget about it - no ROI on the conversion Time X Cost) . Long and short of it is this. Which version of IE and is it a supported browser (example IE 9 isn't available on XP). If you want to support older versions, best solution is to custom code a style sheet just for ie (also pay attention to compatability view vs regular view).
If you are using IE 9, search on css for IE 9 and you will find some items aren't supported that are in all other major browsers.
BTW just so you know, I hate MACs, did tech support for them for over a decade and user friendly is only as good as the user - A.K.A. my response isn't anti MS.November 28, 2012 at 10:52 pm #2221

I despise I.e. everytime I finish a website and everything looks good in firefox, safari and chrome, i.e. always lets me down and I have to add more time to fix stupid errors!
I am using i.e. 8 on a windows platform... not the newest version but the one before it.
I think I will just create a custom widget using text and an image link to my portfolio pages instead.... this is good work-around and much faster.November 28, 2012 at 11:00 pm #2222
Well based on what I saw, any OS using Ie ( Vista, Windows 7 &, Windows 8) looks good. It's compatibility mode where the issues crop up.If you or the client need it to display better for IE 8 or older, focus on ie css that impacts margin and padding.November 29, 2012 at 9:03 am #2272
Thanks for your input, I will create the same effect but use html within a text widget to display an image and link to the page. I know exactly how to do this, and the other could take forever!December 29, 2012 at 11:43 am #8179lucyfelthouseMember
I'm having a similar problem, whereby IE is making the featured images a very strange shape.
Also, when you click through to the post itself, it's not showing the images at all.
Here's the site: http://longandshortreviews.com/index.phpDecember 29, 2012 at 3:47 pm #8214
Did you import your content from another WordPress site, or are you using multi-site?December 30, 2012 at 4:02 am #8321lucyfelthouseMember
Hi sahdow - the posts themselves are imported from Blogger, but I've had to add the featured images manually.
I've also noticed that when you click on an archive page (in another browser, too. I use Chrome.), for example: http://www.longandshortreviews.com/category/book-reviews/ - it's displaying the thumbnail as well as the image within the post.
Can you advise?January 16, 2013 at 9:16 am #12297SunilMember
Ok. I've been reading all the above posts on their problems with the IE browser. Same case for me too. Safari, Chrome and Firefox has no issue.
Here is the problem with IE. The slideshow doesn't appear on this browser at all. My site is http://adultacnetreatmentreviews.com.
Is there some IE bug I need to fix? Its worrying that the majority of users are still using IE for surfing the internet.
Can someone help here?
