Support » Plugin: User Avatar » [Plugin: User Avatar] Not working in IE?

  • Hi, love the plugin, but sadly this isn’t working in IE for me.

    When you click on the Change Avatar link it actually brings up a ‘The webpage cannot be found’ screen.

    In firefox it does work but not as a light box (opens in a new tab).

    Anythoughts? I saw that theme my login does some silly things to it, I have theme my profile active instead, might be a similar issue?? Just guessing.

    Any help would be great.

    Hi KateM82

    Can you tell me if the light box appears in IE. Since the lightbox is not appearing in Firefox. I am guessing there is a JavaScript bug causing the script not to run that makes the light box not open up.

    What version of jQuery do you use? Do you have any plugins enabled on your blog?

    Hi Enejb,

    Yes, I have quite a few plugins on the blog (about 30!) not sure which ones are using jquery though.

    And no the light box doesn’t show up it just opens a new tab.

    Hi KateM82

    Do you have a set up where you can test. A place where you can disable all of the plugins and see if user- avatar works…

    You might find out which configuration breaks the plugin.
    That would be very helpful in the whole debugging process

    I don’t actually… and all my other plugins are essential.

    Any way I can change the code to not open a light box and just open a new window instead? thanks.

    To open it in a new window just click on the update photo button by middle clicking it.
    you don’t have to change the code.

    Actually I want to change the code for the users not me.

    Sorry that makes more sense…

    The line you have to change is 730 in the user-avatar.php
    what you need to change is where it says class="button-primary thickbox" change it to

    and comment out the lines
    37 and 38 by adding a // infront of them
    Hope that helps

    Hi, sorry only just got around to trying this now, it didn’t make any difference. Still says the link is broken when I click on update image.

    It should, the css class “thickbox” is what triggers the overlay without it there is no overlay.
