    EDIT: somehow i miraculously fixed the problem.

    Hey there,

    I'm building a web-site right now for an acquaintance of mine. It's made in Joomla with a modified template. It works fine in Mozilla/Safari, but there seems to be an error in IE8.

    The thing I'm talking about is a tabs manager, meaning that if you click on a tab it 'slides' to another picture or something else. (It's on the right part of the screen, next to the large picture slideshow).

    The site is http://www.jemaghetzeggen.nl/main3

    The error message is as follows:

    Code:
    Message: 'null' is null or not an object
    Line: 65
    Char: 363
    Code: 0
    URI: http://jemaghetzeggen.nl/main3/media/system/js/mootools.js
    

    I tried googling and I think it's a javascript conflict somewhere between two modules/components/plugins. I have no idea what causes it. If someone could please take a look I would be very grateful.

    EDIT: It does work (sort of, the layout breaks a tiny bit) in IE compatibility mode. Don't know if that helps.

    Kind regards,

    Arganos0

    PS: I know the site is ugly. But my friend wants it that way, I can't help it. It's not something I would have made for myself, with the screaming banners etc. The copyrighted images are just placeholders for now. Don't kill me.

    That's too much JavaScript to go through and the files or minified so that makes it that much worse. I'd recommend using Firebug Lite, which I think has a JavaScript debugger. You can use that to set a break point and try to isolate the problem.

    It's very possible there is a conflict between all of those JavaScript files. I've run into issues with jQuery and Dojo, which both use the $. Take the names of libraries you are using and search for combinations of them along with the word "conflict" to see if others have hit this issue.
