Next MCMS post-SP2 fix correcting 3rd browser problems has been released today.


Postbacks on Firefox and Netscape browsers do not work correct


This will only happen if the <base> tag rendering using the RobotMetaTag control has been disabled. As a workaround either enable the <base> tag rendering or (if this is not an option) add the following javascript code behind the form tag of your template:


<script language=”javascript”>
    if (window.navigator.appName.toLowerCase().indexOf(“microsoft”) == -1
    && typeof __CMS_PostbackForm.onsubmit == “undefined”)
    {
         __CMS_PostbackForm.onsubmit = null;
    }
</script>


The hotfix to resolve this problem has been released and can be requested from Microsoft Support as KB 914782

    Hi Stefan,
    We are getting the following validation error in W3C Markup Validation Servicev0.7.1:

    Error Line 14 column 101: reference to entity "NRORIGINALURL" for which no system identifier could be generated.

    for the URL:

    <meta name="ROBOTS" content="FOLLOW,INDEX">
    <base href="http://10.112.26.181/CDM100/templates/history_default.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRORIGINALURL=%2fEN%2fCDM100%2fhistory%2f&NRNODEGUID=%7bAF30FB8C-51AE-47A8-9DAE-1CFBFD51B518%7d&NRCACHEHINT=ModifyLoggedIn"&gt;

    Can you tell me how to solve this problem.
    Thanks

    Chinmay,

    More than likely you just need to HTML Encode the &’s in the href value to &amp;, e.g.,

    http://10.112.26.181/CDM100/templates/history_default.aspx?NRMODE=Published&amp;NRORIGINALURL=%2fEN%2fCDM100%2fhistory%2f&amp;NRNODEGUID=%7bAF30FB8C-51AE-47A8-9DAE-1CFBFD51B518%7d&amp;NRCACHEHINT=ModifyLoggedIn%22%3E

    I had hoped that MCMS SP2 would address issues like this.  Oh well.

  3. Hi Chinmay,

    I did not see your earlier post before I got a notification for the post Chandy added: you would need to address this with a custom RobotMetaTags control.

    Something like this:
