  • I thought twice before posting on this particular thread just because of the above user’s web site url… … …

    But, this is an issue I am currently experiencing with the plug in as well. Seems your JavaScript file is not working in IE7 or 8. Can anyone confirm that to be untrue? I have not modified any core files of the plugin and definitely have not touched the JS file, though I plan to if I don’t hear anything back.

    This is definitely a great plugin, and I want to continue using it.

    Just kinda a curious why the URL would matter when posting a bug report! Did you think you would get cooties just by posting on the same thread?

    @markusdrake if you’re willing to take a look at the JS that would be great! If you find the error please post it here or make a pull request on GitHub:

    @deenorris the url issue is likely due to spam concerns. To be honest, the first time I saw the post I thought it was spam as it consists mostly of an auto-generated error message. The error message is very helpful mind you, so thanks for providing it and sorry for assuming it was spam. 🙂

    I found the issue, it’s actually a pretty simple error but it relieved the issue I was having with IE 7 and 8 and now allows the script to run completely.

    When including multiple functions it’s normally okay to do this:

    function name(){}, function name2(){},

    However leaving that last comma on the end throws exceptions in IE. On Line 25 you have a close function for your dialog – you want to remove that last comma before line 26 and commit the changes.

    I removed the comma on Line 25 of connect.js and it works correctly now.

    The line now reads:

    close: function(){$(document).unbind('click', overlay_click_close);}

    Thanks deenorris, it solved the errors on my end as well. I should have posted the actual line like you did too.

    Markus – You did the hard work. I just posted the edit.


    I guess once they post a working update, we can close this thread.

    Thanks a heap Markus. This fix is now in the development version and will be in a public release on soon (awaiting on a few other changes to be finalised).

    On a different subject, is anyone else getting spam (I assume)through Social Connect? I have reCaptcha on the normal login and it works a treat. Went through a lot to get SC working with Hostgator so I’d like to keep it. Any suggestions?
