Internet Explorer display problem


Recommended Posts

I've just installed OSC and it was working fine in firefox.


I tried it in Internet explorer and it doesn't display properly at all. There are no images and nearly all of the links don't work.


What is the problem?


I've tried it on different PC's and it's still the same.





PS the site is www.inkcartridgeshoponline.co.uk

This is happening because Firefox has better error handling capabilities than IE - in other words it tolerates sloppy configure files and 'assumes' what the base href will be, whereas IE won't.


If you look at your includes/configure.php file you'll probably find that it did not get written to by the install and that it is missing much of the essential information it should have.

<base href="/">


The server is acting up, asserting ssl, common problem.


In: catalog/includes/configure.php


For now set the https lines the same as the http ones.


define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://www.inkcartridgeshoponline.co.uk/'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'http://www.inkcartridgeshoponline.co.uk/'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.inkcartridgeshoponline.co.uk');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'www.inkcartridgeshoponline.co.uk');

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');

Hi , A similar problem has occured on our OS commerce cart and I have read this thread and checked the :

includes/configure.php for the errors pointed out (the cart was setup by Cpanel) .


There are no errors in the config file and yet Explorer definitely has the problems pointed out by other users .


As this thread / board seems to be relevant and recent . Has anyone any other suggestions how to solve this Explorer problem ?
