The page doctype in not supported

Nov 25, 2009 8:11 AM

Hi,

 

I've ensured that the page doc type is that which is supported,  AND that it's the first line of code.

 

I have the following doctype:-

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" >

 

Yet the error in Internet Explorer (only) persists:-


You cannot edit or duplicate this page.

The page doctype in not supported

Contact your web developer

 

I have also tried

 

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"  "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

 

The page does not contain framesets.

 

This error does not occur in Firefox nor Safari however my client has only Internet Explorer available so this represents quite a pain in the proverbial for both my client and for me.

 

Can someone please explain how to resolve ?

 

Many thanks

    InContext Editing can only edit pages with valid HTML mark-up with any of the following doctypes:

    • "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    • "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    • "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    • "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN”
    • "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN"

    Is there some problem posting a link to the site for the forum to take a look at?? Perhaps its a top-secret site??

    Your includes files appear to be outdated (for starters). To correct this and update to the latest version of files follow these steps:

    1. delete the entire folder from your site's server
    2. Goto InContext Editing Administration Panel
    3. Goto Manage Sites--> Manage Users & Settings--> Configure Site
    4. Press the "Save" Button

     

    You should receive a message saying that files needed for editing your site have been copied to your site folder.

     

    See if that works out for you.. Also of note, I would suggest using an absolute path to your includes folder such as:

    <script src="http: //www.yoursite.com/includes/ice/ice.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

     

    Also, change your character set to

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    Explanation for that located in this thread:

    Question marks replace apostrophes and quote marks incontextediting

     

    Good Luck,

    -Tommy

    Adobe InContext Editing is ONLY supported for the US version and does NOT support other top level domains other than .com

    If you are using another such as .ru, .biz, .cz, .ie and so on... ICE may not work as expected.

    I believe it may be possible if you could get one of these Adobe engineers to write you a specific js file for your includes.

     

    Good Luck... sorry

    Please PM me with a link to the page and I'll check what's going on.

    The DOCTYPE declaration should be the first thing in the page, otherwise Internet Explorer ignores it.

    Unless there's something different about your server configuration... it should work.

     

    Your code works fine on my server... and ICE is editable.

    Adobe would have to get in through the back-end and check it out.

     

    ***UPDATE***

     

    I would invite Don Popa as an Administrator on your site, then PM him with the details.

    He's an Official Adobe Super-Engineer... he'll fix it

    Cool then... sometimes you just have to stir the pot a bit here to get it cooking.

     

    Have you tried moving this site to another server all together ( a different hosting company preferably ) and see if that same code works there.


    Like I said, it worked for me. I sent the code off to another guy and it worked on his server as well. Makes me to believe that is the issue.
    Two servers are Dreamhost & GoDaddy (as I stated in other threads, I prefer to test on them)

     

    Either way, good luck.. let us know how it turns out.

    Well, good then.. glad I could be of assistance.

    I was nudging you toward the _draft issue, but thought if I pointed out the "before" & "after", that you would realize the two versions of the same file.

     

    There's one less headache for you anyway.

     

    Any other issues, don't hesitate to post.

     

    -Tommy

    **EDIT**

     

    Ohh wait... was this the character encoding or Doctype issue? Or did that fix both issues?

    I am having this problem, too. My header file has the doctype: 

     

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

     

    This wasn't a problem a couple of months ago. Everything was working fine. I use this for a small, very poor school and the teachers are hoping to get another school year out of it. I really don't want to switch from ICE to something else until I have no other option. The web site is www.saintjohncatholicsc.org.

     

    The first several lines in my header.php file are:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:ice="http://ns.adobe.com/incontextediting">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
