[resolved] Comments don't submit in Internet Explorer. -.- (5 posts)

    Ugh. Okay so here's the deal. I just set up a nice new template and everything was going great! I've been using WordPress for quite some time now and feel pretty knowledgeable about everything... However I have bumped into a problem, and I'm having trouble... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's the deal. When I go to submit a comment in Firefox I have no problem. A user alerted me that their comment wouldn't submit, and after checking anything in moderation I realized that when you hit the submit button in IE nothing happens.

    Here is my comments.php code, anything else you need that can help me resolve this I can provide. Thank you!

    <?php // Do not delete these lines
    	if ('comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
    		die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');
    
    	if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there's a password
    		if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) {  // and it doesn't match the cookie
    			?>
    
    <p class="nocomments">This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments.
    
    <?php
    			return;
    		}
    	}
    
    	/* This variable is for alternating comment background */
    	$oddcomment = 'class="alt" ';
    ?>
    <!-- You can start editing here. -->
    <?php if ($comments) : ?>
    <?php if (!('open' == $post-> comment_status)) : ?>
    <span class="closecomment">
    <?php _e('Comments are closed')?>
    </span>
    <?php else : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    <h3 id="comments">
      <?php comments_number('No responses', 'One response', '% responses' );?>
      <?php _e('so far')?>, <a href="#respond"><?php _e('want to say something?')?></a>
    </h3>
    
    <ol class="commentlist">
      <?php foreach ($comments as $comment) : ?>
      <li <?php echo $oddcomment; ?>id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
        <h5><cite><?php comment_author_link() ?> </cite> <?php _e('says')?>: </h5>
    
        <?php comment_text() ?>
        <small class="commentmetadata"><?php the_time('M') ?> <?php the_time('d') ?>, <?php the_time('Y') ?>, <?php comment_time() ?> </small>
        <?php if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?>
        <span class="moderate"><?php _e('Your comment is awaiting moderation')?>.</span>
        <?php endif; ?>
      </li>
      <?php
    		/* Changes every other comment to a different class */
    		$oddcomment = ( empty( $oddcomment ) ) ? 'class="alt" ' : '';
    	?>
      <?php endforeach; /* end for each comment */ ?>
    </ol>
    
    <?php if (!('open' == $post-> comment_status)) : ?>
    <p class="nocomments"><?php _e('Comments are closed')?>.
    
    <?php else : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    <?php else : // this is displayed if there are no comments so far ?>
    
    <?php if ('open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>
    
    <?php else : // comments are closed ?>
    <p class="nocomments"><?php _e('Comments are closed')?>.
    
    <?php endif; ?>
    
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php if ('open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>
    <h3 id="respond"><?php _e('Leave a Reply')?></h3>
    <?php if ( get_option('comment_registration') && !$user_ID ) : ?>
    <?php _e('You must be')?> <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?redirect_to=<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php _e('logged in')?></a> <?php _e('to post a comment')?>.
    
    <?php else : ?>
    <form action="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-comments-post.php" method="post" id="commentform">
      <?php if ( $user_ID ) : ?>
      <?php _e('Logged in as')?> <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-admin/profile.php"><?php echo $user_identity; ?></a>. <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?action=logout" title="Log out of this account"><?php _e('Logout')?> &raquo;</a>
    
      <?php else : ?>
    
        <input type="text" name="author" id="author" value="<?php echo $comment_author; ?>" size="22" tabindex="1" />
        <label for="author"><small><?php _e('Name')?>
        <?php if ($req) echo "(required)"; ?>
        </small></label>
    
        <input type="text" name="email" id="email" value="<?php echo $comment_author_email; ?>" size="22" tabindex="2" />
        <label for="email"><small><?php _e('Mail (will not be published)')?>
        <?php if ($req) echo "(required)"; ?>
        </small></label>
    
        <input type="text" name="url" id="url" value="<?php echo $comment_author_url; ?>" size="22" tabindex="3" />
        <label for="url"><small><?php _e('Website')?></small></label>
    
      <?php endif; ?>
      <!--<small><strong>XHTML:</strong> You can use these tags: <code><?php echo allowed_tags(); ?></code></small>
    -->
    
        <textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="80%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea>
    
    <button value="submit" class="submitBtn"><span>Okay, I'm done.</span></button>
        <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="<?php echo $id; ?>" />
    
      <?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?>
    </form>
    <?php endif; // If registration required and not logged in ?>
    <?php endif; // if you delete this the sky will fall on your head ?>

    EDIT: I realize that it might help to also have a link to my site so here you go: http://damienk.com/brand-new-look-340/ Submitting a comment in IE on that page (or any other) does not work...

    The most obvious culprit would be a comment-related plugin. I see that you are using WP Ajax Edit Comments. Try disabling it to see if the problem goes away. If it doesn't, disable the rest of your plugins and see if the problem goes away.

    I disabled WP Ajax Edit Comments and anything else really related to the comments and no luck. I continued on and disabled all of my plugins and nothing changed... Any ideas?

    I know the template does some fancy effects when you submit a comment in Firefox, like the page does a smooth-scrolling effect and the comment appears... Anyone, anyone at all?

    NEVERMIND:

    I managed to fix the stupid IE bug by replacing

    <button value="submit" class="submitBtn"><span>Okay, I'm done.</span></button>

    with

    <input name="submit" type="submit" id="submit" tabindex="5" value="Post It!" class="submitBtn" />

    Buttons don't work in IE I guess?
