Hi everyone: I'm using the feature page for the landing, and have 3 rotating items for the left side but i keep the right side (my logo) static. It looks mostly fine in firefox and chrome (a slight flicker upon change), but appears to pulse in a distracting way during the transition in internet explorer. Any ideas how I can resolve this? Thanks! Jason

Hey jasonp, Do you have a live link I can refer to? IE is always the problem child :(. I'll see how I can help you.

IE hates .png images inside of the Javascript transitions. (it can't handle multiple transparency effects) The solution is to find a way to use a .jpg or .gif image.

Hmm. But neither of those support transparency, am I correct? Would have to recreate the exact background to visually work together. This is very helpful though, thank you Andrew.

Andrew -- just following up. What about my original idea about simply prohibiting changes from occurring on the right side of the feature in the first place? The left looks great and the right I want static...can that be done? All the best, Jason

Can be done, but probably not easily. If I were you I would just duplicate the background, and match the predefined dimensions so it looks seamless. You can probably achieve a great looking result that way. plus this way, if you want to go 'dynamic' with the media area later you can :)

This is actually exactly what I've done!! The issue (see the top of the posting), is that internet explorer makes it look pulsating during the transition. Chrome and Firefox have otherwise treated it quite well...but since much of my audience are on old corporate computers with IE, this unfortunately becomes a real issue I need to figure how to fix.

don't use a transparent .png. Instead duplicate the background and include in a .jpg.

Hi Andrew: My designer has tried everything he knows how based directly on the website to replicate the background but unfortunately he keeps falling through. At first the images were too big and then they were too bright when shrunk to the appropriate size. Do you have the exact specifications of the background in that space that you could please send or point me to? Thanks! Jason

The size of the feature media box is 640x310. If you send me your logo at hello@pagelines.com I can make you the image and send it to you. :)
