Hi guys,

I have run into a painful issue with IE on a silverstripe site.
I am using the jcarousel plugin to load in some html content via AJAX and a PHP file.

Now inside each html file that gets loaded in I have another plugin
(using layouts/ image based countdown timer)

Now in IE if I go to:

the countdowntimer works loads and displays, but if I go to:


the countdowntimer DOESNT SHOW UP on the screen! It says that all the js files are there, but for whatever reason IE is not display this thing on these last 3 conditions!

My <% base_tag %> is:
<base href="http://localhost/mysite/">

My .htaccess is
<Files *.ss>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from

<Files web.config>
Order deny,allow
Deny from all

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /mysite

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^(.*)$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule .* sapphire/main.php?url=%1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L]


My setup loads fine in all other browsers safari, chrome, firefox and it doesnt matter if there is a trailing "/" or not.

If anyone knows anything, please let me know

Kind regards,

Hello ttyl its all versions of IE but I am yet to test it in IE9.

Any idea why? (I did find I had a trailing "," in one line of code, but that didn't fix it.
