I have one particular catagory that is causing this error to appear ........... any ideas why ?

Response object error 'ASP 0251 : 80004005'

Response Buffer Limit Exceeded

/shop/shopdisplayproducts.asp, line 0

Execution of the ASP page caused the Response Buffer to exceed its configured limit.

it usually happens because the html on the page being generated is too long; it's possible that one/more of the products in that category have a large number of sub-items/details to display (or there are too many products on the page, eg records-per-page is very high)

try the following:

1) in shop$db.asp, change:




(that'll force the server to return the html to the browser as/when it gets worked out rather than waiting for the whole page to generate before sending any of it back)

if that doesn't fix it, then temporarily add this to shopdisplayproducts.asp:

just above this line:

add the following new line:


(that'll output the current buffer and then clear it again)

if you do that, it should then display and you'll hopefully be able to spot which product(s) are overly long. You can keep those lines in there if you like; they shouldn't do any harm.

We have had some customers report this issue since the addition of new code to allow translation of text in templates.

If you have any ~ or ^ characters in your product records, try removing them and the issue should go away.

In 6.50, we have replaced the use of ~ and ^ with a new template function, to stop these types of issues occurring.
