Support » Plugin: AddToAny Share Buttons » [Plugin: AddToAny: Share/Bookmark/Email Buttons] Having strange issue with IE not loading any pages

  • I’m having a weird issue when I enabled addtoany where no pages of my site load in IE8. I don’t have this issue on FF or my Mac. It starts to load then it gets stuck. and I get some kind of a loop error saying that IE stopped the processes after 2 attempts.

    When I disable addtoany the issues goes away.

    There is a message that the tab was restored and then I get to this url:

    Any ideas whats going on?

    So far this issue hasn’t been reported by anyone else and I couldn’t reproduce it. I looked into the error message you’re receiving, and it seems that there’s a slew of possible causes.

    One thing to note is that the error seems to be related to iframes and AddToAny does use a tiny utility iframe to remember your visitors’ sharing preferences, though it’s a common technique used by 3rd party scripts to work across domains.

    Have you tried disabling all IE add-ons? Have you tried resetting your IE settings back to the default?

    Point us to your site and that might help us reproduce the issue.

    Thanks for the reply. After doing some more tests it seems to also occur if I disable your plugin and enable another similar service like addthis. So it may be something else causing it and not particularly your plugin. I have to run out for the day so I won’t be able to work on it till tomorrow… but I’ll report back after testing a few things. For now its just disabled and I am manually including the addthis script from their website pasted into my template which seems to be working well. Not ideal but working 🙂

    BTW. I forgot to mention that I was working in 3.3

    I’m having a similar issue. In IE when I click the “+”, it looks like it’s trying open and then the tab disappears and I get an IE encountered a message and is closing. I can’t get the plug in to work in Firefox either so I will keep trying for a bit



    Just a follow-up from me. I could not find the conflict – I know it must be a plug-in but I don;t know which one so I had to disable the plug-in and am using really simple share which is working.
