I'm using the Nivo Slider WordPress plugin ( HERE: at the top of the page.

Each of the 4 slides are linked and work properly in all browsers on my MacBook, but in IE 7, 8 and 9 on my Windows PC, the images aren't linked.

Can anyone see where the conflict is? I'm not seeing a javascript error...?

    I am wondering if it has to do with previous division. You are missing  few closing anchor tags (</a>). Add the closing tags and see if that helps. Gregg

    <div class="social_media">
      <img src="" alt="Tag #ErieArt" class="tag_erie_art" />
      <br />
      <a href=""><img src="" alt="Facebook" />
      <a href=""><img src="" alt="Twitter" />
      <a href=""><img src="" alt="Instagram"></a>
      <a href=""><img src="" alt="YouTube" /></a>

    Open in new window

    Turns out, this is a "known issue" with the Nivoslider plugin for WordPress. (Ugh!)

    Thank you though, gregg_s, for catching those!! I missed those closing anchor tags and will clean them up!!
