plezWorld Down? SiteMeter Crashing IE Sites!

for some reason, on August 1st, i could not access plezWorld. get a weird message that Internet Explorer cannot access my page.

BLOG UPDATE (08/02/2008 11:00AM EST):
my good friend over at Electronic Village, scooped me with some info that it was the blog counter that was generating the error.

All websites that used the javascript code for are currently inaccessible from Internet Explorer 6.0 and 7.0. Here is the site that has a fix for the error.

Basically you need to do one of the following:

  • Remove all javascript for from your site (i have a counter on each page, so there can be over 100 references on my blog)

  • Go to Internet Explorer Tools and restrict access to SiteMeter:
      Click on the menu Tools -> Internet Options.
      Click on the tab Security.
      Click on the icon Restricted Sites.
      Click on the button Sites.
      Under Add this website to the zone:
      Type the text "http://*" (without quotes).
      Click the Add button. Click Close. Click OK.

  • i'm going with the second option, so that WHEN fixes the problem, i can quickly un-Restrict the site. so far, it is the best way to track the traffic that goes through plezWorld.
