"This page requires JavaScript to display properly." Yahoo Sitebuilder
Why is this phrase coming up?

 4:53 pm on Apr 8, 2006 (gmt 0)

Another day, another bug in Yahoo Sitebuilder.

Everytime I load up my page, "This page requires JavaScript to display properly" appears. No matter how many times I delete, it still returns when I reload the page.

Has anyone got any ideas how to remove this please?

I contacted Yahoo two days ago and still no reply.

I have the same problems and get many complaints from visitors of my websites.
I contacted yahoo yesterday and when I get a response I will post it here.

Hi mate

thanks for your reply

by chance I found what the bug appears to be 2 days ago

basically if you have your pages "centred" then this javasript error comes up

you have to untick this box to get your pages left justified

then you have to delete the text box that has this javascript error coming up

i did not have these problems until i had to upload a newer version of yahoo sitebuilder

funnily enough, yahoo couldn't care less about this

Thank you for the solution! I will follow your instructions as yahoo hasn't answered yet...

I did as you suggested -- "uncentered" the page and deleted the Java message. That worked. But when I re-centered the page the message returned. Must I leave the page un-centered? Not good!

Yes you have to leave it uncentred!

It's such a piece of #*$! but then again I am only paying $12/month for hosting.

They couldn't care less

Bad news. But thanks anyway. What's the best way to complain to them? Maybe if enough folks complain they'll fix the problem. Dream on, I guess ...

You have to send an e-mail but they normally send an auto reply. then you have to reply to the autoreply.
You get what you pay for i expect!

I got an answer and they say they are working on it. Never had problems in the past with yahoo sitebuilder, but this problem is indeed quite annoying.

I just got a reply from Yahoo! They said to download the latest version of SiteBuilder at [webhosting.yahoo.com...] After installing, re-publish. I did and it worked!

I gave up trying to fix "Their problem" I redid my ENTIRE site using and struggling with Dream weaver.
Now I have the site completely done the pages are sometimes 45k less then they were with site builder.
Site builder is so bloated with extra code!

that is a bloody disgrace to be honest

i had to redo 100 of my pages... a pain in the butt


 12:07 pm on Apr 19, 2006 (gmt 0)

That really stinks!
I hope if you went through all that work, you used a different editor. If so what did you use?
I would hate to do 100 pages!
(My 87 pages were bad enough)
