Like Freddy It's Back

Continuing our saga of the "changing frames" posting - after I thought all the issues had been resolved, it would appear (or least so the client think) that all is not well.

I have checked the site out using Explorer 5.5 and it works perfectly well on all three of my pc's. The client, however, is using Netscape and she says that the changing frames code os not working.

Could anyone with Netscape or other browser systems, please check out the site (ignoring content!!) to let me know what is or isn't working.

Your help in this matter is very much appreciated :)

I just fired it up with NN 4.08 and all I get is a redirect to a wav file. Can't surf the site at all right now.

NN 4.7, and I'm still having the .wav redirect problem. You should seriously test the page without the sound file, and if all is well without it, try to talk the client into ditching the auto-play sound file. They're annoying anyway.

Running NS 4.72, I have the same problem as Oilman. Takes me to the .wav file and leaves me with no where to go.

Hi Tigger,
It won't load in Netscape at all, its the wave file. If I click the link IE will load your framset and then will the wave file loads it kicks me out. To view the site with IE I have to copy the url to a new window.

The function for the wave file names a window and opens the wav file. Then when you set the frames you acsess the DOM and reset the window object. It is confused.

I have never messed with wav files so I don't know what other problem this might cause but, I would put the wav script inside on one of the framed pages and let it load once the frame set is set.

Loaded fine under NS 4.76 and Oprea 5.02 for me.

Morning everyone!
Thanks for all your input, it is very much appreciated.

I have now taken the wav file off completely so hopefully the site is now viewable in all browsers. If any of you feel that you really want to see what the site is about (hahaha!) then I would be most grateful if you could test it again for me just to make sure it works in all browsers.

Thank God it's Friday!!

Cheers, Tigger

Even after I took the wav file off the client still couldn't view it properly so I have abandoned the frames all together and just kept it simple.

Thanks any way

Hi Tigger,
It works perfect in netscape 4.08 and IE 5.5 with the frames. Wonder what version browser your client is using.
