forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

Look at this, so strange, when reading the forum in windows mobile, is impossible to read posts

http://img19.imageshack.us/my.php?image=wmojo.jpg

all of the post are replaced with "[object error]"

but, while the browser is rendering the page, is possible to read the posts for a few seconds

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

Hi,

I'm reposting your image here:

My best guess is that there is some javascript problem going on. We use NeatHtml in the forums to protect against cross site scripting and my best guess is there is some compatibility problem with NeatHtml and the mobile version of IE. I will email Dean Brettle, the author of NeatHtml to bring this to his attention. I'm not sure he has a way to test this browser though unless there is some simulator that can be used.

Best,

Joe

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

This does sound like a NeatHtml issue.  What version of Windows Mobile and Mobile IE are you using?  I don't have a Windows Mobile device to test with so I'll need to setup an emulator or something to test.  It could take a while.  You might be able to workaround the issue by disabling javascript in the browser, but I'm not sure whether mojoportal will work with javascript will work.

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

The Windows Mobile 2003 issue is probably because NeatHtml uses document.getElementsByTagName() which Windows Mobile 2003 doesn't support.  I might be able to workaround that and the Windows Mobile 6 issue if I had a test bed.  Unfortunately, I can't seem to create one.  I've installed Microsoft Device Emulator and the Windows Mobile 6 emulator but can't seem to get the emulated device to connect to the internet.  I suspect it is either because I'm not running Visual Studio (I only have the Express version), or because I'm running Windows itself inside a VirtualBox emulator.  Sigh... 

I think at this point I need a volunteer to run tests for me and send me screenshots.  Any takers?

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

i followed this guide to make the windows mobile 6 professional screenshot

http://www.lancelhoff.com/how-to-emulate-windows-mobile-6/

my device is a samsung i600, it is a non-touchscreen device

someone told me it is necessary to have the virtualpc network drivers, someone told me of activesync. Luckily, in my sistem was present both of them

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

I just managed to get network access from the emulator.  Looks like I needed Windows Mobile Device Center installed and properly configured...

I'm working on diagnosing the NeatHtml issue now.  I'll post again when I have news.

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

NeatHtml-trunk.221 (just released) supports Internet Explorer Mobile 6.  Earlier mobile versions of IE can't be supported due to severe DOM limitations.  Those versions will now display "NeatHtml error: browser too old" instead of the untrusted content.

Re: forum posts doesnt show on windows mobile

Hi Dean,

Thanks for fixing this so quickly! Do I just need the new javascript or were there other changes as well?

Best,

Joe
