First, thanks for taking the time to help me out!
I am developing a client's website where I am implementing the Avia Slider slideshow. The slideshow functions great when viewed in all browsers except for IE 8 & 9. In IE 8, the slides are loaded directly under where they should be with the loading .gif visible all the time. In IE 9, I see the two instances of the loading .gif without any of the slides showing at all.
The site is not live to the general public yet, so can I contact one of your support people through email privately to grant them access? I will surely post the solution here when it is reached!
