JavaScript issue in IE8 - not in IE6 or 7!

Hi,

I have a site which can be found at http://95.131.68.35/~technica/current_vacancies.html 

The list of vacancies is displayed using the jQuery tablesorter plugin.

Everything works as it should - in Firefox (of course) and even in IE6 and IE7.

However, in IE8, when you view this page, there is a JS error highlighted which states the following:

"undefined" is null or not an object ....
jquery.tablesorter.js line 484 char 5

If you perform a search and then view the list of vacancies, the error disappears even though I am using the same code to display the list !!!!!!!!!!!

This error is preventing the table sorter plugin from working prpoperly - it's not sorting on the reference (ID) and you can sort on the page as you shoudl be able to .

Any help in solving this would be much appreciated!

Cheers,

Daisy

No errors in IE8 here at all.

Can you clear the cache to make sure you do not have an older version of jQuery or such?

Hi,

Many thanks for getting back to me. I've re-written the code now so I can't test !! I am using the latest version of jQuery (Google). I'll try another site that's using the same technique!

Cheers,

Daisy
