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" />
<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!!!
