IE 's XDomainRequest is not compatible with XHR #3112

Error with Internet Explorer stats not being captured in Piwik 1.7. I followed the instructions at [] to set the information request from GET to POST. All browsers except IE record a POST request, however IE shows a GET request, causing a 404 error. Have tested this through IE9 and emulated through IE7 & 8 via dev tools with the same results.


(In [6210]) fixes #3112 - drop support for XDomainRequest; Microsoft's implementation is broken



(In [6211]) refs #3112 - update jslint


Where can I download these revisions?


Can confirm that change has fixed this error. IE now accessing piwik.php via POST.


(In [6214]) refs #3112, refs #2321 - XMLHttpRequest Level 2 spec (draft) supports CORS; clean up comments

  • Safari 4+
  • Firefox 3.5+
  • Chrome 2+
  • IE10
  • Opera 12 (CORS support enabled in Presto/2.10.232)

So, we won't restore support for IE's broken XDomainRequest, ever. (Tracker.php already implements the CORS response header.)
