    Internet explorer and javascript!?

    I am building a website for a client and I have come across an issue with internet explorer, the site works fine in Opera, chrome, safari, firefox etc... but when the page loads in internet explorer the main content page disappears it will reappear when you click a link (although some pages do not load correctly) Could any one have a look? Let me know if it is something obvious?

    URL alanis50.com password: ALAN (in capitals)

    Can anyone one see anything that catches their eye?

    <script type="text/javascript">
    <?php $multicheck_auto = of_get_option("autoload"); ?>
    if (window.location.href.indexOf("#") < 0) {
        if ($multicheck_auto['homepage_auto'] == "1") { echo "var appearOnLoad = 1; // show home page content is ON";} 
        else if ($multicheck_auto['homepage_auto'] == "0") { echo "var appearOnLoad = 0; //  show home page content is OFF";}
    else if (window.location.href.indexOf("#") >= 0) {
        if ($multicheck_auto['otherpage_auto'] == "1") {echo "var appearOnLoad = 1; // we're not on the home page, show content is ON";} 
        else if ($multicheck_auto['otherpage_auto'] == "0") { echo "var appearOnLoad = 0; // we're not on the home page, show content is OFF";}

    IDs cannot contain spaces.

    I am still having trouble with this! Which ID's are containing spaces? Would this effect IE only? Works fine in every other browser, The page loads then the page content disappears as the BG loads? Any help would be greatly appreaciated!

    It's hard to debug when there's php scripts intermingled with js. Please post the generated script. And what version of IE are you using? And is there any js error in the console?

    The page loads and works fine in MSIE 9.

    So it's probably yet another old-IE bug. Whether in CSS or JS I don't know.

    Oh, by the way, I RSVP'ed saying there will be 27 in my party. <grin/>
