Hi All,

I have installed UncleCheese's Image Gallery module for the first time. Working well on FF and IE6 and IE7.

However, in IE8, I get a javascript error when I click "Add Images to {Album Name}" button on the "Photos" tab.

The error is located in facebox.js, line 192:

var preload = [ new Image(), new Image() ]

"Object doesn't support this property or method"

There are a few follow on errors after this also.

If I choose to not debug, the upload popup is shown within the original window, not as a popup. This still seems to function fine, until it comes time to close, after which the entire CMS needs to refresh.

Sure enough, the images have been uploaded and are displaying in the correct place, it just appears to be some sort of bug in the popup function.

Any ideas or known bugs?

Noooooo!! I knew it was only a matter of time before IE8 caught up with me. Not sure how I can test it. I'll have to figure out a way to get a Windows machine set up with IE8.

Be sure to post DataObjectManager and ImageGallery posts to the DataObjectManager forum. I use the RSS feed like a bug tracker of sorts.

Confirmed that Facebox is not IE8 compatible. (yet)..

May have to fix the problem using the "EmulateIE7" meta tag.
