IE7 script error (4 posts)

    The plugin (both previous release and v0.56beta) seems to be giving me a script error in IE7 only:

    "Line 25 Expected identifier, string or number".

    Anybody else have this?

    Are you using CAPTCHA and/or Validation?

    If so, try turning both off and see if it works. I looked into an IE7 compatibility problem for someone a few months ago and as I recall it was the jQuery Validation plugin I am using that was causing the problem. There was also a slight syntax that was valid Javascript that IE7 didn't like but I am pretty sure I have folded that fix in already.

    Debugging IE7 problems is a challenge. WordPress issues a warning about using IE7 on the Dashboard - I realize that some people are stuck with it for compatibility reasons but it is hard to spend much time chasing down things like this.

    No, not using Captcha or validation.

    The error is on the front end, not in WordPress.

    I'm not too worried about IE7 these days but I'll see if I can find the cause, but like you say, IE7 is a nightmare to debug!

    Thanks for your response.

    Is it a form you created recently? If so, it may be some new Javascript Google is now including in their forms. They are using a client side Javascript validation library (but not jQuery Validate). In my testing the code they include doesn't hurt anything but I never bothered to look at it with IE7. That would be my guess based on your description.
