    simply stated above.
    Please let me know or point me to another post or direction to how I could get this resolved.

    Hi. The blog linked to your username is empty and uses Titan. What’s the address of your Twenty Eleven blog? (http://)

    Hello again,
    I have checked your site using IE8. I do not see an image at all I only see this text in a huge whit space “Featured Post”

    Using Firefox 6.0.2 I see an image and this text:
    Featured Post
    Changes Trending to Extinction



    Hi, can you give us a bit more information? Which version of IE did you see the issue in? Did you try a different browser, and a different computer?

    I looked in IE7, IE8, and IE9 and didn’t see a broken layout.

    (Forum volunteers: if the layout is broken it could be a bad HTML in the content of a post, it’s probably not the theme:



    Hi Lance,
    I’m using IE8 and all I see is a large white space just as I stated above.


    Just as timethief have pointed the format/picture/heading/title should appear as shown when tested on firefox 6.0.2, however on ie8 the “featured post” is blank and compared on firefox you’d know exactly what’s missing/wrong. (she basically stated what’s wrong, thnx again!)

    I’ve tried a few fixes from that support link you’ve provided (settings > reading > “blog pages: show at most 1”), but to no avail. I dont think it’s a sidebar or tag issue.

    any other suggestions?



    I’m out of ideas, and I can’t help troubleshoot it very well since I can’t repeat the issue in my testing. :(



    Hmmmm … :(



    Well at least it’s a friday. :D
    …so Ill table it for tomorrow and fiddle around a bit and report.


    I’ve updated to IE9(.02) and it seems its working now. Not quite sure whether it was an IE version issue, but I guess i’d have to note that somewhere on the blog if it is.

    Thanks all for looking into this!



    ok confirmed, it is indeed an IE version issue. (still blank on IE8)

    This is actually quite an inconvenience seeing IE9 is only for Win7! (work computer is IE8 due to using XP and I’m sure it’s the case for all other people’s work place computers)

    So is there no work around for those unable to upgrade to IE9?



    Hi @vetrallaimports, I was able to reproduce the issue in my testing and made some fixes. Can you take a look at your site in IE8 now and let me know if you see any difference? Thank you.



    windows XP & IE8
    All I see is a large white space with this text on the upper left corner. “Featured Post”



    Great news! I clicked “compatibility view” and I can now see the header image – woo hoo! :)



    @timethief: Glad it works for you.



    Hopefully clicking “compatibility view” will work for vetrallaimports too. :)
