/*With the code below it seems to work again*/

$(window).load(function() {
    var btn  = $(".erp-edittable");
    var link = $(btn).parent();
    var href = $(link).attr("href");
   $(btn).click(function() {

Can you provide a bit more context? The file you changed, and the line number, or better yet a diff, so we can better understand the fix? Thanks.

Also, please expand on "doesn't work" ... are you seeing a javascript error?


-- GeorgeClark - 16 Nov 2016

Also, what version of IE are you using? And what version of Foswiki?

-- GeorgeClark - 16 Nov 2016

Sure I use Internet Explorer 11 and edited the erp.uncompressed.js file, afterwards exchanged erp.uncompressed.js with erp.js.

With does not work I mean, that if you hit the button then nothing did happen, there was no javascript error. In my opinion Internet Explorer does not understand if a button is child node of a hyperlink tag, it just ignores the href.

We use foswiki version 2.1

Thanks for the patch. We'll get it applied for the upcoming 2.1.3 release.

Are you sure the diff is correct, and you don't have other changes to the file? The file shipped with Foswiki 2.1.2 is only 689 lines.

Could you try to fit your patch against the version here:

Or, please attached your patched version to this task and I'll try to figure out why the diff isn't matching.
