Hi there,

My client insists on using internet explorer (SOE environment).
Silverstripe CMS (2.41) freezes after every save in Internet Explorer (v7 and v8)

Unfortunately most of the business world still uses IE exclusively.
Is anybody aware of a patch or other solution?

Yeah I wish people would take our "recommended browser" line seriously... but in your case I'd a try 2.4.2 / 2.4.3 and more importantly get/give some more information. "After every save" - what does this mean exactly? Exact steps to reproduce... if this is a page object in the site tree then are you using widgets? which ones? what customisation has been done? etc...

Hi, i think Spyk problem is like the one described in this thread:

On some pages and on some tab, after u save the page, u can't edit any of the inputs in administration anymore..

And the workaround here doesn't work in my case..

Has anyone found a resolution to this? The workaround doesn't work for me - I'm not sure if the fact that the tab the CMS is freezing on doesn't have a title field has anything to do with this?

I'm on Silverstripe v 2.4.4
