Pages with AJAX don't work

From AniDB
Jump to: navigation, search

Since revision 0.1.3x AniDB uses AJAX in some pages, the anime page, mass-add file and add file pages to name a few.
Sometimes the XHTMLRequest will fail to return a node, if you enable seeDebug and get an error message saying "Could not get root node" please check some settings in your browser:

  • Use HTTP 1.1
  • Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections

By definition AJAX requires HTTP 1.1, so if you try to use a page that needs to fetch data using AJAX and it doesn't work, check your settings first.

Generally whenever you have issues with AniDB you should first try another browser.
Recommendations:

You shouldn't use Microsoft Internet Explorer or any of its derivatives (i.e. MyIE, Maxthon or stuff like that) for this site (or any other site on the Internet, for security reasons).

Note Microsoft Internet Explorer is not supported by AniDB!
AniDB may work with it, but that's untested and unsupported.
