Vulcho - I have the thumbnails showing up, but they aren't linking/working in Internet Explorer... Plus as the main image shows up (a PNG) it's drop shadow is super chunky in IE when it loads. any solutions?
That is because the way of IE renders CSS. Earlier versions like IE7,IE8 are suffering of lack of CSS rendering. That is the reason that the drop shadow looks super chunky in IE. I can't recreate the issue with the wrong linking , everything seems to work just fine in my IE7,8&9. Probably clearing your IE cache will solve that issue.
