Support » Plugins and Hacks » [Plugin: Translate This Button] Error on IE8
5 years, 7 months ago
First off, thanks for this amazing plugin. It works like a charm on Firefox, Chrome and Opera browsers, however on Internet Explorer 8 there is no button (just a link) and I got the following error:

I’m surprised there’s not been a fix for this yet, it’s a fantastic plugin… but it doesn’t work with Internet Explorer.
I thought it was just on my site and that something was conflicting but the problem exists on the translateth.is website too.
Has anyone managed to fix this?
Find this line in translate-this-button.php in plugin folder:
For some reason if you download that file, and put it on your server.. then update the SRC accordingly… it works.
Don’t understand why…
Hmm… actually.. just realised this has caused more JS errors which only appear on rollover of the Toolbar.
Translation does work now though so it’s an improvement…
