    So basically this is what I was doing

    domain.com (PHP Redirect - Notice I put SSL)
    Code:
    <?php
    header( 'Location: http[COLOR="Red"]s[/COLOR]://www.domain.com/folder/file.php' ) ;
    ?>
    This is the content of domain.com/folder/file.php
    Code:
    -CODE REMOVED-
    
    IE8 got me, hate if all other browsers got me too :p
    I put the referrer checking site as a test.

    IE6, IE7 and Firefox 3 are loading my page fine with this setup. But IE8, as shitty as hell, never loaded the page, it shows the "navigation to the webpage has been cancelled".. but ironically, when I remove the SSL and change https to http in the address bar, the page loads fine.

    Any idea why IE8 is acting lyk this shit? I just realised this and God it hurts conversion ratio of IE8 users obviously. Any codes that will work with IE8?

    Thanks. Answers will be thanked or repped!

    Because it is made by Microsoft. The shittiest software company when it comes to QA in existence. :p

    If framed-meta refreshes work in IE8 I'd try that. (Though they probably would not since they don't in IE6--but I have not tried it in IE8 personally.)

    This has probably something to do with the security settings of your IE8. Did you try iframes instead of frames? Don't think this will work, but it's worth a try.

    True.

    U noe when I was searching for this solution i found an article saying IE8 is the safest browsers right now. I might agree with that if i found no solution to this, i mean lets face it, what im trying to achieve is kind of blackhat, I want people to arrive on my ssl thinking that my ssl is the ssl of my advertiser.

    If it's my security, then that sucks, coz this is default settings. And I've tried on my 2 other machines with IE8, same outcome.

    Iframe? I tried many codes actually, have any simple iframe code in mind? yeah it's worth a try.

    EDIT: hey how about the iframe code from your browser history cs? How do I modify that code so that instead of loading it in the background, the iframe loads in a full page?

    I find it hard to believe that IE8 is safer than the most recent version of Firefox, considering Microsoft's track record, even with things they claim are 'secure.'

    Basically take a standard double meta refresh and try framing it and see what happens...

    Just set the height and width right. If 100% does not work in all browsers, take the exact values.

    dude im not sure u quite get me.

    what im trying to achieve is not to blank referrer, but to have https to load my external site (offer) in a frame in IE8.

    Oh, my bad, I thought you were trying to blank the referer via SSL. So you're trying to frame another page in your SSL page so it look secure, gotcha. I am not really sure of the best way to do this, sorry.

    There very well may be no way around it--it is probably an IE8 security thing to stop you from doing exactly what you're attempting. :sad: I would recommend filtering the user agent for IE8 and throwing them to another offer. Beats simply losing them.

    yeap, that's why I was quoting about that article that says IE8 is the safest browser right now.

    there's one solution left now. I read about prosper202 install on SSL and someone claimed it worked on IE8 for the setup of https + cloaking.

    I wish prosper202 isnt so complicated, im not doing ppc for this particular campaign and im not familiar with prosper202 campaign setup. i would just be doing a simple linking. worth a try? what do u guys think?

    Everything's worth a try. In the worst case scenario it won't work, but you'll then be familiar and experienced with using prosper202 and know what it can do for future endeavors.

    problem solved.

    i'm using jabbidoo's user agent check, if ie8 redirect to non ssl, else redirect to ssl. dude others would sell those type of scripts, kudos to you man! also thanks to you im getting familiar with complicated php scripting..

    I'm testing this across few more major browsers then im running my campaign. thanks for the help guys!

    edit: Since I had to give up and drop ssl for IE8 users, I would have to say I*E8 is the safest browsers at the moment :p hahaha.
