27-08-2010 - Problem with iShoutbox in the Opera Browser
« on: August 27, 2010, 12:00:51 AM »
A problem was discovered where the shouts inside iShoutboxes were only visible for a second before reverting to an empty shoutbox when loaded in Opera browser.  :shutup: It seems that Opera does not handle browser return code 304, and therefore showing a blank page. This was confirmed by a bug report at:

http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=676132

I have added tiny piece of detection, where the ajax refresh only works if the browser is anything other than Opera. This means that people using Opera (about 2%) will not enjoy an automatic refreshing shoutbox  :(

This will be removed once Opera plugs the bug.
