Trouble Viewing With Internet Explorer vs Firefox etc | Forum

I have the 'Graphite and Sidebar' template and have installed the 'Advertising' plugin for my banners. However, there are problems
when viewing with ie.

Check out both firefox vs ie


The photos and banners do not show at all and thought it may be a permissions error but all seems to be ok.

Is there a fix for internet explorer? I'm currently running ie8 in
windows XP

Can anyone else see the pics/banners using ie??

Thanks in advance

I clicked on the compatibility button but nothing worked. However, I did a bit of searching and found this :-

ie fix : Tools -> Internet Options -> Security tab -> click on the Internet Icon -> click Custom Level -> scroll down to "Display Mixed Content". If you choose ENABLE, IE8 will display...........

I then restarted ie and cleared the cache. Opened up ie and clicked on compatibility button and 'voila' pics appeared.

Only now the users avatars on the left are vertical rather than horizontal but hey... at least it's now showing the pictures [but NOT the advertising banners on the right sidebar].

Are you using IE7 or IE8?
