  • I would appreciate any help with this….

    There must be more to this?

    http://www.shadowvillepro.com/subscribe.php works fine from IE (I also tried from FF successfully).

    Is your wordpress installed in the root of your website or in a sub-directory?

    It’s installed in the root of the website.

    And it’s not working with any of my computers using IE 6.0.

    Ok… Now that’s just weird.

    Would you be willing to share the complete contents of your .htaccess file here? (if it’s huge, put the contents in pastebin or a text file in your blog and just post a link here).

    I once tried Drupal till I realized Godaddy doesn’t allow locking tables. So I deleted the Drupal files….but I have no idea how to clean up the Drupal stuff in .htaccess…I’m not too knowledgable with tampering with .htaccess and don’t wanna mess things up 🙂

    Chris_K

    (@handysolo)

    Eeks.

    Well, the WP part is easy to figure out. I dunno if ALL of that above is for drupal or if some of it is just generic to your host.

    Because I’m a daredevil…

    I’d back up that .htacess (copy it to .htaccess.bak or something similarily clever) and then I’d remove everything above
    # BEGIN WordPress
    and see what happens.

    arkane8

    (@arkane8)

    Nothing happened. And I mean nothing…no changes, no difference, still can’t access this page.

    Also I used to have a users-online.php file that used to be in the root directory, but didn’t work either after I changed from IDs to permalinks. I fixed the problem by calling the function using <?php ?> embedded on a wordpress Page.

    But I can’t do that with subscribe.php as the functions are considerably more complex and needs its own .php file to function.

    Any other ideas?

    (@handysolo)

    I, for one, am rather stumped. Hopefully one of the smart folks will wander by and offer some thoughts!

    The page displays fine both in IE and FF.

    I can see the subscribe page just fine.

    Anyway, all you need in .htaccess is that stuff after the # BEGIN WordPress, like Handy stated.

    arkane8

    (@arkane8)

    I scrapped everything before #BEGIN WordPress…and it doesn’t change much.

    The IE version that doesn’t see the page is:

    6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519
    Running Windows XP Professional on an AMD 64 Athlon processor.

    This applies to also the same version browser on two different Windows XP Home machines running on P4’s.

    Moshu and Otto:

    I can confirm I don’t see the pages with ie6. I do see the pages with ie7b3, FF and Opera. Weird.

    Shows up in IE6 for me. FF too. Don’t have IE7 or Opera.
