    Hello Sandlot,

    Greetings and welcome to the forums

    I have a site that does not appear correctly.

    By that do you mean it does not render anything at all, not even text ?

    If yes, then try the below

    <!–[if gte IE 9]> <script type=”text/javascript”> Cufon.set(‘engine’, ‘canvas’); </script> <![endif]–>

    Or you may force compatibility by putting this in the head

    <meta content=”IE=8? http-equiv=”X-UA-Compatible” />

    or update it to the latest here

    Or if you are using custom fonts, generate a new latest here

    I hope it helps

    Cheers

    Hi Sandlot

    Greetings from the WPMU DEV Support Team and thank you for being a member of our community.

    PC gave solid advice there. I have experienced problems with Cufon Fonts on IE9 myself before and after updating I got it sorted.

    Let us know if you need more assistance.

    All the best.

    @sandlot

    I assume you are suggesting to add it to the Header.php file.

    Is that correct?

    Just Edit theme-header.php by adding

    <!--[if gte IE 9]> <script type="text/javascript"> Cufon.set('engine', 'canvas'); </script> <![endif]-->

    after the below code

    // adds support for cufon font replacement
    function cp_cufon_styles() {
    ?>

    @pcwriter : Thanks for noticing that :slight_smile: and Its only you from whom I took the inspiration and found that yes, I can do this too !

    Thanks for being there for us and sharing your valuable knowledge PCW !

    That worked! Thanks so much! Hey, might you know anything about MarketPress?

    I upgraded to WordPress developer to hook up to the gateway for my store and am wondering if I have to continue to pay the 79.00 every 3 months to be able to continue to use it? I can not find any information regarding the continued use of it. Thanks so much!

    I am not too sure regarding this issue, @joe might have some answers on it… To be true, I actually did not get the essence of this question :expressionless:

    Please advise

    Cheers
