The new Canvas template seems to only work properly in Firefox (pc or Mac) and Safari. When viewed in MSIE the thumbnails are not clickable. In a way this is oddly refreshing in a world where so many web pages only work in MSIE.

Too bad because I quite liked it.

That template uses a very sophisticated code for a rather simple effect. It uses semi-transparent PNG images to show that drop shadow around the border. Firefox can handle these images but not IE. Therefore a special script is used to make that shadow effect work in IE as well. Unfortunately that has a small side effect, the thumbnails loose their link function...

Open the template file index.html in a text editor and delete this line:

<script type="text/javascript" src="assets/bgsleight.js"></script>

Now the gallery work fine but you see the ugly white borders. I recommend to edit these PNG files in Photoshop and change the transparent color to your background color.

The next step would be to do the same for the media pages, otherwise the prev/next/index and IPTC and EXIF links do not work. In addition there are some script errors when you open the IPTC and EXIF fields...

Most of the new super-cool css templates look pretty ugly in IE on a PC. Looks like they only test with Macs...

But now, how to change the background color?

I tried body bgcolor=#999966 but it's not working.

Thank you!

Most things are defined in an external style sheet, a so-called CSS file. You can find it in the assets subfolder. Here is the one from the sample gallery:
