There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

"Add to cart" excerpt buttons not displaying in IE8.

Hi there,

I was hoping someone might offer some insight into an odd problem I'm having with excerpts displaying in IE8.

I'm using WP Simple Paypal Shopping cart with WP3.0.1 and Atahualpa 3.5.3. I'm using posts as shop items and the "shop" page displays the excerpts of all posts with the category "shop".

To enable to "Add to cart button" in the excerpts, I went to ATO>Configure Excerpts and put these exceptions in the "Don't strip tags" boxes: <p><img><object><form><input>

So far so good, but I've been developing in Chrome. I checked it in IE8 and none of the "add to cart" buttons show in the excerpts - only when you open the post up itself.

I've tried installing the "Advanced Excerpt" plugin and stopping the excerpts from being stripped of any html and shortcode, but still nothing.

It works in Opera, Chrome and Firefox - just IE8 doesn't display the links. I've looked at the source in the "shop" page with the excerpts and also within the actual post itself to see if there was any other tags I was missing. The only difference between the two is one of the input types shows a different location as value:

"shop" category page:

<input type="hidden" name="cartLink" value="http://www.thedarkasylum.com/sfa/shop" />

Item post:
<input type="hidden" name="cartLink" value="http://www.thedarkasylum.com/sfa/2010/shop/cream-alpaca-wool" />

But I can't see why this would make a difference to whether the button displays or not. The URL for the site is: http://www.thedarkasylum.com/sfa/shop

I'm still working on it and if I manage to get a fix, then I'll post it. I'm sort of hoping (fingers crossed!) that someone sees this and might be intrigued enough to help a poor but grateful noob out!!!

Many thanks,

Here are three things to try. Check after each to see if the buttons are showing in IE
  • Set the front page to show full posts
  • Turn off the fading headers
  • Try %pages instead of %page-center
These are all things that have caused "issues" in the past.

Hi Larry,

Thanks for the suggestions - tried all these but it's still not working. I seem destined to cursed by IE!!

I've just worked around it by not having the buttons show on the excerpts now but if anyone does hear of anything I'd be grateful. I've got to start developing in IE as I've had several issues with it but unfortunately the vast majority of my customers use it as default.
