Done, But With Errors on Page

Friday, December 7th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

When I visit certain Web sites, I often get the error message of “Done, but with errors on page.” What does that mean and is there anything I can do to fix it? Please help!

Well, to begin, this error usually only shows up in Internet Explorer and it mainly has to do with JavaScript. If the Web site you’re trying to view uses JavaScript, you may run into a script related error, which triggers the “Done, but with errors on page” message. It is usually generated by an error in the site’s code and unless you have access to that code, you probably won’t be able to fix the error yourself. Once the problem hits a Web site’s code, only the developers of the site can get in and fix it.
It looks like this, by the way:

However, when that error pops up, you should still be able to see most of the site. Just keep in mind that some of its parts may not function correctly. You might have a missing image or animation here or there, but most of the site should still be visible. Now, I know some of you may be worried about the error affecting your computer. You may be thinking that it’s going to harm your PC. Well, I assure you it won’t. The problem lies within that Web site only and there’s no way it could damage your computer. Plus, if you go and visit other sites, you’ll see that they load up just fine. And once the creators of the other site fix their code, that one will be viewable again as well.

In addition, if you’re a Web site designer or editor yourself, you’ll want to keep an eye on your site and make sure the “Done, but with errors on page” message doesn’t pop up at any time. If it does, just go in and look through your source code. The problem usually comes from an improper syntax, an incomplete code or a script that is placed in the wrong HTML section. Just take a look at those things and you should be able to fix the error rather quickly. Then your site will be back up and running the way it should be.

As you can see, this error message isn’t one to panic about. It’s unfortunate that it happens, but there’s not really anything you can do about it yourself. If there’s any way you can contact the designer of the Web site, do so. They may not even know there’s a problem, but if you tell them, I’m sure they’ll get it fixed right away. Otherwise, you’ll just have to sit tight and keep checking back until the problem is solved. Luckily, it’s not an error message that can ruin your whole day. At least it shouldn’t!

    Sometimes the following trick works.
    1.right click.
    2.Click on `Back’.
    3.When you will see the previous action,once again right click and click on `forward’. That’s all.
    Or, try this one:
    1.Right click
    Even though it is not permanet solution,I have succeeded so many times by applying it.
