Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
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

I pasted the code for my Java Facebook badge into a text widget on left sidebar. Displays in Firefox, but not IE. I'm running WP 2.7.1. Site: http://leslamb.ca

Looks like IE isn't executing part of the Javascript. Could you turn on the "default theme" for a moment and see if it's working there, to verify whether this is IE alone or a combination of Atahualpa & IE?

Turned it on, and it works fine in the default theme, as well as Inove.

Those two are XHTML transitional, Atahualpa is strict, it may be related to that

It's working on my test site, see http://wp27.bytesforall.com/

Change the content in the Facebook text widget to the correct version

HTML Code:
 <script type="text/javascript" src="http://badge.facebook.com/badge/514693422.570.1242595448.js"></script><noscript><a href="http://www.facebook.com/people/Les-Lamb/514693422">Les Lamb's Facebook profile</a></noscript>
(Note the added "type=...")

You also have a wrong <br> tag at the top of the twitter tag

</br> should be <br />

If this doesn't help, try changing at the top of header.php
HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
HTML Code:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
just to see if this would help. This should make IE less picky about other errors that may be on your site

Thanks, Flynn. I did all this, but it's still not working, despite the fact that my badge appears fine in IE on your test blog from my computer.

About the twitter break tag, I actually don't want a break there anyway, so I just removed it altogether. Thanks for going above and beyond.

Any other solutions for my Facebook badge? By the way, now that I've pasted the revised code for my badge from this page, could you please remove it? I'm concerned someone may be able to use my ID number from that code and gain access to my Facebook account with it. Not sure if that's possible, but I wouldn't want to find out.

I removed your badge from my page. Could you try to remove the twitter plugin/widget and see if your Facebook badge works then? Also try removing other plugins or Javascript code you've inserted somewhere for a moment to help tracking it down.

Thanks. I've removed the text widget containing twitter code. I'm not aware whether any of the other widgets would operate on Java or not. At this point, the facebook badge still doesn't display properly in IE. Let me know if there are any other widgets you'd like me to remove.

Hey, Flynn....just checking in with you on this, as there was no reply to my last message. As I mentioned, I did remove the text widget containing twitter code, and nothing changed. No other widgets that I have control over are using Java, to the best of my knowledge.
