IE8 Reloading Issue

My Wordpress blog works just fine in Firefox and Google Chrome.

I just realized, though, that in IE8 it keeps reloading and reloading after the header loads.

Sometimes it reloads in the same window, other times it reloads and opens new windows.

What could be causing this?

Welcome to the forums, Chris.

It is a very strange symptom. I've never run into this problem before, but I do have an educated guess.

The reloading and new windows might be caused by some kind of javascript that's misfiring in IE but not in the other browsers. IE does use their own version of javascript.

Thanks. After three hours of pulling my hair out, I finally figured it out.

I recently tried out a new caching plugin...WP-QuickCache. I tried using this instead of WP-Super-Cache. Turns out deactivating the QuickCache plugin cleared things right up.

I deleted it and won't be trying that plugin again.

If anyone has a Wordpress blog, I am now using the DB-Cache plugin which seems to be ten times better than WP-Super-Cache.

Thanks.

Awesome - thanks for sharing the fix here, too.

Did you discover what WP-Super-Cache was doing that made so many problems for IE8? I imagine that just having the fix was your main goal, but I am curious. Such a strange bug to have for the most important browser. Funny that the developer didn't catch that!

Actually, WP-Super-Cache was fine in IE8, I just didn't think it was speeding up the site all that much.

That's why I tried switching to WP-Quick-Cache. That's when the problems began with IE8.

I have since ditched them both and am now using DB-Cache plugin. Site is flying now!
