Oxygen theme not working right in IE8 or 9

  • Author

    I am using the theme Oxygen and it’s looking good in firefox and safari, but the featured images and a few other elements move off to the side in IE8 and 9. Can anybody tell me why this is? It’s a private blog, so you can’t take a look, but take my word for it it’s wonky. Hopefully someone can help without seeing it first hand. Does this theme often not work right in IE8-9, has anyone else had a similar problem? I’m a little desperate for an answer….please help if you can!


    The blog I need help with is blog.sculpture.org.



    The blog is “private” so how can we Volunteers help you with an issue we cannot see and/or witness and/or duplicate?


    OK. I’ve made it public quickly, I will put it back tor private once I hear back. Thanks,


    Nevermind, not a good idea. I can invite somebody to view it.


    So it seems to happen only when I hover over the featured images in IE 8. Does that offer a hint to anyone? Is there maybe a CSS fix or something? Thanks,


    I’ve made the blog public again. Please take a look if you can!


    This is the error that comes up in IE8…

    Does this help at all?
