Attachments not available in Internet Explorer

Attachments not available in Internet Explorer

#1Postby semicolon » Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:38 pm

I created a test newsletter while in Firefox with a PDF attachment. I then opened the same newsletter in Internet Explorer using a different log in. The newsletter is there, but the attachment link will not expand to provide access to attachment. Firefox works fine.

I saw that image uploading was limited in IE but not the opening of attachments in an existing newsletter

Using
Firefox 11.0
and
IE 9.0.8112.16421
Update version 9.0.5

The problem with IE expanding the attachment bar is caused by a JavaScript error:

Code: Select all
Message: 'console' is undefined
Line: 27
Char: 4
Code: 0
URI: [URL]https://beta.lds.org/member-news/resources/script/member-news.js[/URL]

I was about to report the very same problem -- the expand feature for seeing the attachments doesn't work for IE 8, but it does in Firefox 7. I tested that as an Admin, Publisher and general user.

This is listed in the "Known Limitations" page: http://tech.lds.org/wiki/Known_limitations_with_Newsletter

When uploading images, you must use Chrome or Firefox (rather than Internet Explorer).

Actually, it's not listed there. That simply says that uploads are not supported with IE. But this thread is discussing downloads, which are inaccessible in IE for a totally different reason.
