    This is a nice them for modern browsers, but does not work for ie8 as it should.

    Images in posts do not appear in ie8 when they have a link on them. No link then the image shows up.

    Also the featured image that appears on the left as thumbnail on the archive page is distorted in ie8.

    I find the theme very frustrating that is does not work in ie8. I had to add css so that colors would appear instead of transparent areas. the header background, buttons, icon boxes etc.

    theme Version: 1.9.1 and wp 3.6

    Please help fix ie8 issues. There are still too many users accessing websites using windows XP with ie8 for it to be ignored.

    Thank you



    Can you give us a link to the website?

    Please install this plugin to enable use of HTML5 on older browsers like IE8: http://wordpress.org/plugins/html5shiv/

    For the images, please remove the width and height attributes to fix the disappearing image issue.




    I have a similar problem with images in the Blog section in IE8. They are distorted to very tall and skinny. Could you be more specific about what width and height attributes to remove?



    If you added the images using this:

    <img src="IMAGE URL HERE" width="" height="">

    You can remove the width and height attributes.

    Please add this on your custom.css or Quick CSS:

    img {
    max-width: 100%;
    max-height: 100%;




    I removed the width and height attributes to fix the disappearing image issue in ie8 – thank you

    I set css img { max-width: 100%; max-height: 100%; } to fix thumbnail distortion in ie8 on the archive pages – thank you

    The plugin html5shiv made the site display worse in ie8 – I removed

    The latest post widget image – in ie8 displays too small and does not fill the square. Can you tell me what css to add to fix?


    I set css img { max-width: 100%; max-height: 100%; } to fix thumbnail distortion in ie8 on the archive pages

    but just realize it messed up the slider images.

    I changed to this so it is more specific:

    img.attachment-square.wp-post-image {

    max-width: 100%;

    max-height: 100%;


    which does seem to work for just the archive images.

    But i can’t seem to get the latest post widget tiny images to fill square. Also the “you might also like” (related posts) images are distorted. Seems the style above should have fixed – but it does not.

    I am also having issue with the size of images inside of tabs – for some reason they are too large in ie8 and a scroll bar appears.

    Can provide an overall generic style sheet for the ie fixes? It seems to be a lot of work to get this theme to work in ie8. Having to go through all the images and remove the width and height is bad enough but also having to figure out all the css style to change and then only to effect ie8 etc..


    Hi edebe,

    IE8 doesn’t support max-width and min-width as far as I know but it also doesn’t support media queries so it shouldn’t be an issue to make images adapt to IE8 containers.

    If you have an example from your site where there is an issue we can take a look, inspect the code and see whats going on.




    Hey there,

    I’m having the same issues as edebe in IE8.

    Here’s a screenshot of the stretched ‘You might also like’ images and the ‘Recent Posts’ images not filling the boxes correctly: http://i.imgur.com/0vW4EaA.png

    Hi Tom

    You need to update your theme files to the most recent release and bug fixes.

    For a quick guide on updating your theme take a look at this video on updating the Enfold theme via FTP: https:/vimeo.com/channels/aviathemes/67209750
