Fixed. Since IE8 doesn't support background-size I've decided to use custom icons for IE8 and add a rule in hack.less to use those images.


Comment: still showing wrong for me

This is what I see in my development server (in IE8): and here's the commit:

I added some assets (twitter_small.png, for example) that aren't in the server:

Maybe that change wasn't deployed?

It somehow indeed did not deploy. Maybe that effects other issues you solved too. It is in SVN and the portal has built since, but it is not in the actual deloyed webapp:
 the old one does exist:

Im rebuiliding the portal, something went wrong in the last deploys

its there:
we had a bad jenkins deploy configuration that deployed to a portal-web context instead of /portal

Perfect. I didn't know that the home page comes from Drupal, so that's why currently there are no social icons in

I'll fix it now.

Comment: I can confirm that the icons look better in IE8 now, but the Vimeo icon looks a bit pixelated/distorted. And can confirm that they behave normally in other browsers when looking at the java side, but missing from drupal side.

Comment: Fixed. The missing icons appear in the drupal site & the vimeo looks better now.
