  1. Hi, I recently used your template for my blog. Everything is fine in Google Chrome. But the blog images are distorted in IE9. Thumbnails in the main page are appearing in full size. Also images are not fitting the width of the posts. Please help.

    I did onnly one customisation for fitting width of images in the template. I added the below piece of code.
    img {
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;
    width: auto\9; /* ie8 */

  2. Hi there - that is exactly my problem, but I couldn't find that line. the only thing I can find relating to this is the following:

    .post-body img, .post-body .tr-caption-container, .Profile img, .Image img,
    .BlogList .item-thumbnail img {
    padding: $(image.border.small.size);

    background: $(image.background.color);
    border: 1px solid $(image.border.color);

    -moz-box-shadow: 1px 1px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, .1);
    -webkit-box-shadow: 1px 1px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, .1);
    box-shadow: 1px 1px 5px rgba(0, 0, 0, .1);

    .post-body img, .post-body .tr-caption-container {
    padding: $(image.border.large.size);

    any idea which parameter might be wrong? Works great in Chrome but squashed to a flat line in IE. most images are fine in any post, it's just that thumbnail code I have to display every post on the homepage with a read more button that squashes the images. My blog is if you care to check it out. Thanks!
