Support » Themes and Templates » My Site Crashes IE9

  • Rae1986


    I’ve been using a modified theme for a while. I am not sure why but my site crashes IE9. It says that a script has stopped the page from loading. I thought it was my goolge ad script so I turned it off. I also tried disabling the twitter and image slider scripts to no avail.

    I then put the site through the W3 HTML verifier. It detected a rogue DIV tag on line 651. So I removed that from page.php of my theme..

    Still getting crashes. Could anyone help me debug this?

    it looks fine in my IE and google chrome though

    I created a site with child theme of Twenty Ten and created two blog pages that query the database for a particular category. This category code is the only difference between the two pages that crash IE9 and the other pages that are straight WP Pages. There is no standard blog page on the site.

    <?php query_posts(‘cat=33&showposts=’.get_option(‘posts_per_page’));
    get_template_part( ‘loop’, ‘page’ );
    development install:

    The two pages are “Blog” and “Industry News” that are crashing. I also have a “Blog Test” menu item where I am testing solutions.

    I tired putting the site in IE8 emulation with a meta tag but that didn’t work either:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" >

    We are supposed to launch tomorrow and I’m just stumped! Any help would be greatly apprecaited!

    After a long night of searching… I found the answer to this. Believe it or not, it was a filter tag in the CSS that made IE8 and IE9 totally freeze! So much for IE9 anti-freezing claims.

    So, if you are having this problem… check your css for elements with a “filter” attribute.
