Steps to reproduce

I’m using the Meetup website to view individual events of several groups that I belong to. When I try to view an event, the browser flashes the event for a fraction of a second, then goes blank. I’m able to view the same event URL from Chrome without problem. This issue occurs consistently for every new event across several different Meetups that I belong to. This had worked correctly for many months. It first started occurring a couple of weeks ago.

This is one example:

    • Seeing this on a friends computer. Windows 7

    • I am having the same problem… How was it resolved?

    • I have had the same problem for a few months

    • Me too for a month.

    • I have also had same problem are you dealing with it?

    • Same behavior happening for me too, using Internet Explorer: 11.165.17134.0

    • Mine too

    • So has this been resolved. mine has the same problem.

    • I just posted this, but not sure if it will appear here also, so here it is again. Sorry if this is duplicated.

      I have had the same problem accessing the individual Meetup pages and the answer is that the Meetup website no longer supports Internet Explorer. This is really upsetting as I have been a member of several groups for many years and will no longer be able to access the info. I am not going to install any other browsers on my computer. I came across this problem on another website also - a job website - and will no longer be able to use that either. There does not seem to be any way around this except to install one of the browsers that Meetup supports. Has everyone complained to Meetup? I have many times.


      2.Technical Issues
      1.Site Issues
      What browsers does Meetup support?

      Right now, Meetup supports the following browsers on the full site:
      •Chrome – The newest version here.
      •Firefox – The newest version here.
      •Safari – The newest version here.
      •Microsoft Edge – The newest version here.

      While using the mobile site, the following mobile browsers are currently supported:
      •WebKit based browers – Default browser on iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod) and Android phones
      •FireFox Mobile for Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod)
      •Opera Mobile for Android and iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod)

      If you’re using a new beta version of one of the browsers above, the Meetup site will probably work, but you may run into snags. We make sure our site is compatible with official browser releases, but beta testers using newer, not-yet-official editions might have a little trouble every now and again.

      If you’re using an older version of any of the browsers listed above, your best bet would be to update it or try a different browser.

      If you’re surfing the full site on a mobile device, certain mobile browsers might cause the full Meetup site to function incorrectly.

    • Don’t know why the type is extremely large. I didn’t format it that way. Sorry.

    • In IE, click on the Tools gear in the upper right corner.
      Select Compatibility View Settings.
      In the Add this website box, type: meetup.com
      Click Add and then Close.

    • This is such a pain. I can’t understand why Meetup suddenly doesn’t support my browser. And seemingly nothing can be done about it except to intstall Chrome or whatever?

    • Previously to today, putting meetup.com into the Compatibility View sites solved the problem. Today (1-16-19) it is back again. This is in IE 11.0.105, Windows 7 x64.

    • I don’t have a problem with this in the Edge Browser, just in Internet Explorer.
      When I click reload the page, and then hit the red x once the page is redisplayed, it shows the page. However, as soon as you click on something again, it goes to a blank page. A script must be running on their webpage.

      1. Just upgraded Firefox to version 66.0.2 64-bit. Now I have this same problem, except the meetup event page may display up to a minute before it suddenly goes blank. Refreshing the page brings it back, but it will disappear again like the first time. This happens on various meetup event pages; it’s not just a single event where this happens. This never happened before the browser update.
    • It’s reproducible. It happens all the time.

    • I’m also using Firefox browser. Since updates being installed a couple of days ago I’m experiencing exactly the same problem with the Meetup website. When I attempt to go into the event page of different groups the page just freezes and doesn’t load beyond that point. This has never happened before and is so irritating. I’m using Windows 10.

    • Having exact same problem Brian G. describes above (Mar 29, 2019). Presumably a Meetup problem, not a browser problem?

    • Reported problem to Meetup. They have replied:
      “I’ve updated our engineering team about your experience and we’re working to fix this as quickly as possible. It’s a high priority right now, but I don’t know the exact timeframe of when it will be fixed.”
