Hi Ranchers,

What technology is being used for developing this site(ranch)?
By looking at the url's i think they are using cgi-bin.... and not java
web components(jsp,servlets etc....)
Just curious to know why not java?

And whenever i browse this site, i always find javascript error in my browser, which says an object is missing as i am using IE... am i missing some configuration in the browser

If the above questions are being answered already,
please give me the url's to the answers

Regards

Some information on why the forum software does not use Java can be found in the discussion on New Forum Software.

Works fine in IE, too, for most people, anyway. sunil chow, if you tell us the exact error message, perhaps someone could help.

Safari generates a couple of warning messages for each page as well. The details including the exact messages are in this thread.

Thanks, Ulf. That thread went by when I was on vacation and I've never seen it before.

Looks like I spoke before all the facts were in. Those error messages were caused by PithHelmet (a Safari extension) blocking some JavaScripts. With it turned off, no more errors.

Cool. I did a little experimenting and concluded that a proxy firewall blocking *.js files could possibly have the same effect. Anyway, great, we'll file "PithHelmet" away in the knowledge bank.
