I got the ImageGallery module installed and working perfectly firefox ... however in IE8 it's not loading properly, you can click on the gallery, see the albums fine, but when you click on an album the images in the album don't appear. It has the loading icon showing, and you can scroll over where the images should be and get the background colour defined in a:hover, but nothing happens.

With some fiddling with IE's settings I managed to get it to produce a script error message which says:

Any ideas on how to get it working?

imagegallery_init.js is a really simple script... I think it's only 4 or 5 lines long. Can you do some trial and error and let me know the line that is causing problems?

I've been getting this with IE7 as well.

Issue seems to be that IE gets confused as gallery variable is also uses as an ID elsewhere. I changed mine to:

// We'll avoid relying on any specific JS framework to keep this open.
window.onload = function() {
	if ( opengallery = document.getElementById('gallery-list'))
		opengallery.className = "gallery-layout loaded";

and seems to work ok now
