Submit Comment> "javascript: void(0);" issues

Hit and miss using IE8 when posting comments under articles. Hit the Submit Comment link and it does nothing, for example here-,8752.html

However I have no problem posting a comment here-,8753.html#BOM_comments
or here-,news-4751.html

even with errors on the page.

I can post a comment to the first link ( using Google Chrome, so would this suggest IE8 not loading the script properly here and there? Also, is there a way to make it function properly using the debugger, since it's evidently a browser-related problem?

Thank you for any suggestions/info, it's much appreciated.

  1. Hi,

    Is this happening today? I noticed a server problem that might be causing the linked javascript files not to load properly.

  2. Yes, it's still happening with IE8. I can post with Google Chrome, and IE8 works as well on other article comments, but not that one for some reason.
  3. Hi,

    So that is the only one you are having problems with? Just let me know if it continues on anymore.

  4. I am having script problems on the main site with the page select buttons numbered 1,2,3 and 4 under the forums. They won't work until you reload the page a half a dozen times, and this has been going on for about 2 weeks?
    I take that back, it is does not show a javasrcipt error now, they just simply won't work?
  5. What browser? It works in Firefox.
  6. I can't ask any questions because I don't see a submit button anywhere on the page. However, this page has a quick reply and add a reply button. What is going on. I have an error on page on the bottom left of the screen.
  7. I really don't think IE likes this site much.
  8. I've been getting the javascript void(0) error nearly every time I visit tom's on the news feed page buttons (1,2,3,4) and while trying to post a comment on news articles for about 2 months now...I was also using IE8, which doesn't sit well with this site
    google chrome from now-on when visiting tom's :(
  9. I received the void error in IE8, but submitting a comment to an article worked in Firefox. I was able to post a reply in a Forum in IE8. Weird. Hate this sort of intermittent problem. Not worth the time to sort it out since there is a workaround.

    If Tom's would like me to try and help them sort it out let me know and I'll make the effort since I really appreciate the work they do to keep this site up to date and valuable. The info here has saved me a lot of money and solved many of my computer problems. Thanks!!
