Javascript errors in Admin CMS

I just got done developing a site with silverstripe 2.3.0 stable. It was working fine on my local MAMP PRO (default setup) server. As soon as I moved it over to the live web server apache (hostmonster, shared) I started getting javascript errors in the cms. When I click on a page in the site tree it just hangs there. I tried a fresh install on the hostmonster account and I get the same issues in the cms. So I am figuring this must be due to a server setting.

What server settings would cause the javascript (particularly the ajax calls) to not work correctly? Or is there something else I should look into.

Thanks, Ryan

"Javascript errors" is probably a bit too vague to expect any meaningful response. Please post the specific error (you can find it in your browsers javascript error console or through

Having similar errors. This happened on a previous site I was working on, then seemed to stop. This time I lose the scroll bar on the right and have to tab through content, which gets messed up too. Attached is a screenshot of the stuff that happens. I would love to get this figured out.

Wow, that looks pretty messed up - can't say I've ever seen this behavior... Can you replicate this on a fresh installation as well? Might be inconsistent sitetree records causing markup breakages. You didn't overload any CMS templates right? Do you have any modules installed? Can you please try admin/?flush=1?

I still need the actual javascript error from your javascript console or firebug though...
