    I’m finding images placed in the content area of posts and pages and wrapped in a link (so the image appears in a PrettyPhoto popup window) are being compressed horizontally when viewed in Internet Exploder 8 for Windows.

    Here is an example link:

    The images appear normal in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome.

    Is there a way to fix this? Thanks for any help you can provide.



    You include an IE fix stylesheet on your css folder.

    Including the IE stylesheet fixed the problem.

    I placed this in the /wp-content/themes/coherence/header.php file above the </head> portion of the code:

    <!–[if lt IE 9]>

    <link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”/wp-content/themes/coherence/css/ie8-and-down.css” />


    And this is the CSS content of my ie8-and-down.css file:

    p a img {

    max-width: none;


    Thank you Ismael for the tip.

    However I’d like to recommend a more permanent IE8 compressed image solution be added to these themes so we don’t have to individually troubleshoot and fix them in the future.


    Glad you resolved it.
