[Plugin: Translate This Button] Error on IE8

  • 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:

    Webpage error details

    Your website domain translateth.is points to google.com

    Thanks for the plugin!

  • 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?

    Fixed it..

    Find this line in translate-this-button.php in plugin folder:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://x.translateth.is/translate-this.js"></script>

    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…
