I just launched a site with this theme for a client, but had just noticed these issues:
1 – in Chrome, the slideshow section does not expand the fade overlay with text effect to 100% width and we lose the transition effects from one slideshow image to another. http://screencast.com/t/nNHrWiufo
2 – the google fonts, OSWALD, is used as H1 on the slideshow, there seems to be a bug that causes the font to change from OSWALD to a standard font (like Arial or Helvetica). This occurs sporatically. When it does occur, text on the image becomes cut off. Not sure why it doesn’t stick to OSWALD 100%.
Before (desired look): http://screencast.com/t/RmyaOGMfQnlJ
After (bug with google font): http://screencast.com/t/oNIfvS5CXw
Any idea why these issues are happening now?
My plugins are very limited. FYI.November 13, 2012 at 3:19 pm #97014
We’ll need to take a look at both issues live to get an idea of what could be causing it. If you can provide a link here we’ll check it out and move forward from there :)

The issue is that your caching plugin is saving the IE6 version sometimes and then spitting that out to anyone visiting the site. If it gets refreshed when a Chrome or Firefox user (even IE9) it gets the html class for that browser cached which is why sometimes it seems to work and sometimes not.
Unfortunately, I don’t believe there is any setting for any of the current cache plugins out there that save a different version per browser and the fixes that get applied to make the theme compatible for each browser are done via this class.
So disabling WP Super Cache should fix the issue for you.

That is strange, the Super Cache plugin that was installed was disabled all along. I just deleted the plugin alltogether and clear the cache on my browsers. Hopefully, that will do the trick. Will keep you posted.November 14, 2012 at 12:47 pm #97018November 14, 2012 at 6:59 pm #97019
After the deletion of the plugin, looks like everything is back to normal. Thank you for your awesome help.November 15, 2012 at 2:56 am #97020
