This article has been archived and is no longer updated by Apple.

Download and install the Mac OS X Server v10.6.8 Update or later.

You can resolve this issue in Mac OS X Server v10.6.7 by creating a Javascript file to each of the folders inside /Library/Application Support/Apple/WikiServer/Themes .

The content of the file is:

var PosterMovieFix = Class.createWithSharedInstance('posterMovieFix', true);
PosterMovieFix.prototype = {
    initialize: function() {
        $$('img.posterimg').each(function(img){if(!img.outerHTML)img.outerHTML=XMLSerializer().serializeToString(img);if(IEFixes.isIE&&img.alt)img.alt+='# '});
    }
}

 

Stop the Wiki service, then restart it.

Note: If you ran a script previously attached to this article called "fix_poster_movies.sh" or "fix_poster_movies_2.sh" you do not need to perform any additional steps. Just update to Mac OS X Server v10.6.8.
