Widgets breaking in IE6, IE7, and IE8 :S

Hi everyone,

I have a problem - I’m embedding widgets on a page, located on an external domain to my Piwik installation.

The embed code is failing in IE6, IE7, IE8 - but works in IE9. Here is the code - taken from the Piwik Widget page, and pasted in “as is”


I’ve swapped the domain to say example.com. Does anyone know why this isn’t working? Flash player is up to date in all browsers, and I have a crossdomain.xml file installed on the external domain.

The above code works in FF, Chrome and Safari (I’ve yet to test in Opera)

Kind regards,


Maybe a problem related to IE security and P3P headers? can you try different security settings in IE?

Hi Matt,

Thanks - sorry for the delay in replying to you. I’ve taken your advice, and lowered the security settings to accept all cookies - and turned off everything which could be blocking things… Alas, flash still fails to load.

IE 6 through to 8 fail. IE9 and all other browsers are ok. I am taking the code “as is” from the piwik api widget page.

When embedding as an iframe - this works… when embedding as flash, it doesn’t work. Really starting to pull my hair out on this one…
