Script Errors

  • 6

Lately I've been getting quite a few script errors when trying to open topics in Chowhound. For example, a box will pop up with the following in it:

----------------------------------
An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line: 1012
Char: 5
Error: Object doesn't support this property or method
Code: 0
URL: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/823373
----------------------------------

I also just had the exact same error opening topic number 823348.

I believe I've encountered other, different script errors lately; when I find more, I'll post them in this topic.

I'm using IE8 in Windows 7.

  1. Roughly when did you start seeing these?

    EDIT: And is the problem consistent? I've refreshed both pages a few times on IE9, windows 7 without incident. We'll give it a go on IE8 as well when we get a chance.

      I've been seeing them for at least a week, maybe longer.

      The problem is NOT consistent. It happens only once in a while, and not always on the same pages. I can try opening the same page again and the error doesn't occur.

      I just got another one:

      ----------------------------------
      An error has occurred in the script on this page.

      Line: 1019
      Char: 5
      Error: Object doesn't support this property or method
      Code: 0
      URL: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/823413
      ----------------------------------

    2. I'm not sure if this is a script error, but I've noticed problems loading the page when one of the Sprint ads is on it. In fact, one time, all that appeared of the ad was a question mark.

      1. Here's another one I just got (although I should mention that I was opening several topics at virtually the exact same time, through multiple bookmarks):

        ----------------------------------
        An error has occurred in the script on this page.

        Line: 4
        Char: 19577
        Error: 'K05540' is undefined
        Code: 0
        URL: http://www.chow.com/static/2011121521...

        Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

            A shot in the dark, but based on an unrelated problem- you're not seeing a Sprint ad on the pages where this is happening, are you?
