  • Creating, editing, or submitting items gives the error "Object doesn’t support property or method ‘addClassName’"
  • Campus banner does not appear on the login page
  • Tabs do not appear in the top frame once logged in


These issues are caused by Internet Explorer Compatibility view being enabled.

   2.  In Compatibliity View settings -> "Websites you've added to Compatibility View" , select the entry for "" and click the "Remove" button
