Title: Internet Explorer 7
Post by: trlbldr on 26-12-2008 21:05:15
I recently installed JoomGallery on a J1.0 site, http://www.acmetreadway.net (http://www.acmetreadway.net); the site opens using Firefox but...Internet Explorer 7 returns an error message stating that IE cannot open the site.

If I unpublish the link to JoomGallery ("Photo Albums") and unpublish the module, IE 7 opens the site as it should.

What is going on? I appreciate any and all suggestions.

Thanks very much!

I don't have a solution for you but I have exactly the same problem.  I installed JoomGallery on a working site yesterday and the site works fine but clicking on the Photo Gallery link when using IE results in errors and nothing is displayed.  The same site and link in every other browser, FF, Opera, SeaMonkey, Chrome and Safari works just fine.  It's only IE that has the problem.

This installation is on Joomla 1.0.15 Stable and JoomGallery was downloaded yesterday so it should be the latest.

Hi 2all,

@trlbldr: sorry for the late reply. Is that the reason for you to change the gallery? Sorry.

@DaveM: could you please give us a link to your site?

I activated the gallery for you to look at but I don't want to keep it active for too long if at all possible since the vast majority of my audience uses IE and it won't work for them.

Hi,

could you please deactivate the Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow?

could you please deactivate the Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow?

I'd be happy to if you can give me a clue to where I might find that.  I tried turning off slideshows completely but it didn't make any difference FWIW.

If seeing the configuration file would help I'd be happy to post it or send it to you.

Hi DaveM,

the Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow is part of your template I guess...

Edit: or change the PopUp from Lightbox to Thickbox3. I think some of the loaded Javascripts don't like each other...

Selecting thickbox3 allows things to work on my local installation but not the production installation (the one I posted the link for). I do use the slideshow in my header but it doesn't explain why a duplicate of the site works locally but not in production. :(  Any other ideas/suggestions?

Hi DaveM,

I disabled all Javascripts using IE Developer Toolbar and your site works and JoomGallery too...

I switched the slideshow I was using in the header real quick and the gallery loads now but none of the slideshow options in JoomGallery seem to work (but only on the production box, everything still works as it should locally which is quite odd).  I'm going to see if it makes any difference with no slideshow at all in my header (though I don't believe it should/will).

OK, I got rid of the slideshow in the header but none of the "Open Original Picture in" options seem to be working now <insert sound of head banging on desk> :)  Things seem to be getting worse instead of better.  I've emptied the Joomla cache as well as the browser cache just in case.  Things continue to work fine in all other browsers too ... just IE that's being a pain :(

Hi DaveM,

I do not know, what's up with your IE, but for me it works.

Yes sir, it seems to be this instance of IE that's at fault.  I just tried it on a couple other machines and it does seem to be fine now. Validates once again why I avoid IE at all costs :)  Thanks for your assistance and patience.  This is a wonderful addition to Joomla to say the least.

Sorry, guys, but I had to uninstall JoomGallery. I use the site I cited <pun!> to let volunteer trail crew members keep up with each other and with crew projects and to recruit more volunteers. I simply cannot afford to have a site that IE, in any flavor, doesn't open.

I can muck around with IE on my PC and turn off Javascript, for instance. The site template depends upon Java, however, and I can't expect site visitors to just know to do the same with the version of IE on their machines.

I really like the design and options, but had to remove the app for operational concerns.

I hope everyone enjoyed a great holiday!

Cheers.

With all the improvements that Microsoft has done with Internet Explorer over the years, why is it that they havent yet figured out how to make new windows open in full open mode when clicking on a link? Every other browser does it perfectly fine.
