Support » Fixing WordPress » Error on IE8 webpage related to jquery

  • Hi

    I am getting the following error in IE8 (not in Firefox):

    Webpage error details

    User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; GTB6.3; Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) ; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.5.21022; OfficeLiveConnector.1.3; OfficeLivePatch.0.0; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; InfoPath.2)

    Message: Invalid argument.
    Line: 12
    Char: 12949
    Code: 0

    What could be wrong? Could it be a plugin that I am using that’s causing conflict?

  • Opera complains about an error in wp-includes/js/thickbox/thickbox.css?ver=20090514

    I have not installed a thickbox and have uninstalled and deleted all plugins that might make use of a thickbox, but still I am getting these errors.

    Please help!

    The same problem. I use “Smells Like Facebook” theme.

    I changed the minified jquery.js to developer version from

    Then I got better error message on row 4456. I added this debug code before that error line:
    alert( elem.tagName + " -> " + name + "=" + value );

    It resulted that the last alert before the error was:

    DIV – line-height=NaNpx

    I tracked down the element (by element values alerted before) that really were making the error and added some line-height value to it’s CSS. Maybe you could get more information from your elements, but I didn’t have id or title information on those..

    Now it works and I changed back to original minified version.

    jackyah — did u manage to pinpoint where was the error and the fix? I’m using the same time and getting the same error msg.

    Pls share. thanks

    @kpelto — sorry, i meant i’m using the same theme smells like fbook. what element what that error referring to?

    I’m not 100%, but I think it was in styles.css and

    input[type=text], textarea {
            color: #777777;
            font-size: 11px;
            padding: 3px;
            line-height: 11px; /* this */

    Thanks! That actually got me past that error!
    Now the next error is:

    Message: ‘attr(…)’ is null or not an object
    Line: 96
    Char: 4
    Code: 0
    URI: /themes/smells-like-facebook/script.js?ver=2.9.2

    Hmm still googling trying to fix this… any idea?

    This problem is another error. Not related to jQuery – the topic.

    No idea. Try to update WordPress and/or reinstall theme.


    I have a problem with JQuery, and I can’t figure out what’s wrong with it.

    Please see here:

    Stick that into IE8 and it’ll come up with a message like below:

    Webpage error details

    Message: Object doesn’t support this property or method
    Line: 166
    Char: 6
    Code: 0

    And the code it stages is:

    Even if I deactivate the flickr plugin (which, the site worked before I installed it), the page still only shows half of it, the scrollbar won’t go down far enough….

    Any ideas what this might be? I’ve been working on it for hours…


    It appears that this code is the conflict with the scrollbar:

    If I remove that, then the transparency goes but the scrollbar is fixed in IE. But I still get the error message with that Jquery code…

    If I change the theme, it seems to work – the Flickr that is…
