Internet Explorer is driving me crazy one more time :-(
I includer a nice custom styled Anything Slider on a clients new (still under development) website: http://www.frankfurt-spart-strom.de/wordpress/privathaushalte/
Everything works fine in normal browsers. To my surprise It also works as expected in IE9 and in IE7. But it doesn’t do anything in IE8. Neither does the autostart option work, nor do the navigation links for the next/previous slides work.
Any ideas?November 3, 2011 at 1:02 pm #90131TheDocMember
Here is the error if anyone is wondering. Unfortunately, I’m pretty useless when it comes to these things. @Mottie is our resident AnythingSlider expert (and he also handles the GitHub repository), so I’m sure he’ll know what’s going on!

@Mottie – I don’t mean to dump stuff off on you, but you are just too knowledgeable with the slider!November 3, 2011 at 4:38 pm #90141November 4, 2011 at 6:29 am #90175
@Mottie Strange. The site is not protected in any way and works from every computer I tried it so far.November 4, 2011 at 7:53 am #90177
Maybe I’m going crazy? I’ve tried every browser.November 4, 2011 at 9:01 am #90179
@Mottie This is more than strange, since it seems to be a DNS problem.
I have to create a copy of the site anyway and place it on a dev server. Perhaps that works better.November 6, 2011 at 11:39 am #90246November 6, 2011 at 12:18 pm #90249
Ahhh, I was getting an error from jQuery. I have a feeling it’s related to this jQuery bug that happens only in IE8 when there is an object element in the first or last slide (jQuery v1.6.1 can’t clone them). This is a known problem in older versions of jQuery.
So try updating to the latest version, which is v1.6.4, and the slider should start working.November 7, 2011 at 7:09 am #90270
Thanks a lot! In other CMS I always use the latest jQuery version. I should get into the habit of replacing this in WordPress, too, since the jQuery version shipped with WordPress is usually not up to date.November 7, 2011 at 7:10 am #90271
BTW, of course now it works :-)
