I’m using the going green template for a blogging site for my daughter (she is going to Africa as a volunteer) . Before I had problems seeing the background images on media like a Iphone or small laptop. So I changed the wrap part in the css as the Studiopress helpdesk adviced me. It looks fine. But now I’m looking the site at explorer 8 and again the background images (under the header, as wel as the red ones at the footer) are missing.
I asked the helpdesk and they said: “IE8 does not support the multiple background code used in this theme to generate this effect so it will not show the top/bottom background.” Unfortunately the whole group for whom I’m designing and building the site uses IE 8 and nothing else.
So I asked the helpdesk again (thank you helpdesk!!) and they said: ” You can create a couple of extra containers and set those to have different backgrounds and set those to have absolute positioning. It will take a bit of customizing to make it have the same effect”
But it stops here for I’m able to do a little bit of css editing, but nothing more (I’m more a designer than a builder).
Can anyone help me out and tell me in simple words how I can do this?
Thanks a lot!January 4, 2013 at 6:26 pm #9621
This may not be helpful, but it would be a whole lot easier on your end to just choose background image/font color combinations that still work when stupid IE8 doesn’t show the background images.
If you could encourage them to use a decent browser such as Chrome or even FireFox, then everyone wins. Both are free.

I wish I could, but I can’t. If it’s just for one customer then it would be much easier. I am making this website for an office where it’s the ICT department who decides which browser they use. I just have to deal with itJanuary 4, 2013 at 6:45 pm #9628

I’m looking for info on containers as well before posting a thread and came across this one. My comment is completely irrelevant to your issue, but I just wanted to tell you I peeked to see if it was resolved and your site is fantastic!
