IE8 bg-gradient

    Hi,

    I am struggling with the background gradient in IE8 (no problems in other browsers). Even disabling the backgound gradient image leaves me with a solid (whiteish) background and not the proper graphene background which appears underneath.

    Any help greatfully accepted.

    Thanks

    I’ve checked with the default Graphene theme, and the problem doesn’t occur. Probably an element on the homepage is messing up with IE8 (in)ability to render transparent PNGs.

    How do you disable the background gradient image, via CSS background: none?

    Thank you very much for having a look.

    I think it is being caused by something in my functions.php, an older version I have does not cause it. So now to work through but I haven’t got a clue what I’m looking for that could be causing this.

    Thanks again

    Jon

    It was a jQuery problem. Solved it by loading Google’s version 1.3.2

    You might want to be careful with what version of jQuery you’re loading, as a lot of scripts and plugins depend on it. Using other than the standard WordPress-bundled jQuery (vresion 1.6.1, I believe?) may present compatibility issues somewhere.

    But if all looks fine, then why not 🙂

    I hadn’t realised the default was 1.6.1. Searching I found this http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/9440 which talks about strange background behaviour in IE8. I have now set my site to load 1.6.2 which I think only has a few bug fixes from 1.6.1 and hopefully will not cause any problems.

    Cheers
