FrogJS 1.1

The script works fine in latest versions of firefox and safari but does not work in Explorer (not the latest version)
The first image loads but not any thumbnails - what am I missing here?

This script was written before the advent of IE 8. I had several cracks at getting it to work in that browser, but was never successful. Unless someone else comes up with a working version for IE 8, I'd say that the script is a lost cause.

However, you can try this one workaround that I haven't looked into yet as regards this script. That is forcing IE 7 mode for IE 8. To do so, put this meta tag as the first thing before your page's title tag and any other meta tags that might be there:


<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7">

But it has been my experience that even if the page already works in IE 7, though this may help it in IE 8 if there are problems in that browser, it doesn't always do the trick.
