Resized images don't display properly in IE9

Recommended Posts

Images that are resized in wordpress via the Visual editor don't display properly in IE9. They display fine in FF and Chrome, but in IE they maintain their oringinal larger dimensions.

I have tested on multiple computers with the same result on all of them.

This seems to only be an issue in pagelines (for me anyway), I don't have this problem with other themes.

Issues happens in Pagelines version 1.2.4 and 1.2.5.

Is there any kind of fix for this?

Thanks

Which images are you noticing this on in IE9? Looking at your site http://www.eastersealstelethon.org/ I wanted to make sure we're looking at the correct page.

IE9 has a known history of problems with resized images. See this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7909696/internet-explorer-9-resize-image-proportionally

Other themes have the same problem.

There are two possible solutions other than those offered in the link above.

1. Resize the image manually to the display size. You can also keep a larger size which isn't displayed, but may be linked manually.

2. Seek solutions from Microsoft's boards or support. They may have an out-of-the-box answer.

That is a little disappointing to hear. I am currently using pagelines lite to see if it is worth doing all our events sites using this theme, and before I purchase the full version. If I can't have our support staff edit their own pages, and use the visual tab to resize their photos it is a bit of a deal breaker. It kind of defeats the pupose of building the site in a CMS.

Unfortunately, we cannot control how WP and IE9 interact. Please consider that PageLines doesn't resize the image. That's a WP function, so theoretically, this question is best raised at wordpress.org. Since IE9 displays the resized image, it's also a Microsoft issue that should be addressed with them. PageLines isn't the only theme having this issue.

Perhaps if you set standards for the size of images, the staff would be able to deal with them without resizing or error display. Just a suggestion, of course.
