    Can you post the relevant code? This network security is so tight that your site is being blocked, so I can't "View Source" the code.

    Hey thanks for replying.

    I worked out that it is a "reveal-modal" issue - which means when the user clicks the button the screen goes dark and only the email capture field remains.

    I cant figure out why it wont work with IE.

    Not sure which bit of the code to post though b/c it seems that it is all releveant, the css, the javascript etc....i apprecaite the help thou....

    Attached are the errors in see in IE9.

    You don't have an element with id of 'fb'. IE is less forgiving of JS errors than other browsers.

    Add an element with the id of 'fb' (perhaps hidden) to see if it then works.

    Thanks -

    I tried that and yes, it was hidden (i.e. the facebook 'fb' like button) but no, it didnt solve it....

    Kinda weird this thing...

    I really appreciate you taking a look thou. Not sure what more I can add to help solve this. No code has been hidden.

    Did you fix it? - it worked fine when I tried it in IE, gave the same popup as other browsers.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    Thanks - yeah, i kinda fixed it - i just re-built it! It was a lot easier than having to figure out the problem.

    Thanks everyone.

    I should add that I just followed this tutorial and code - works great (i didnt update the page that is used as an example at the top of this thread however).
