Opera 6 and Javascript links

 9:39 am on Apr 28, 2002 (gmt 0)

I just checked a page in Opera 6 that works in every NN and IE version I've every tried. It seems that Opera doesn't like this kind of link:

<a href="javascript:popUp('pic_l.htm')"><img src="pic_s.gif"></a>

I get the error message: "Address type is unknown or unsupported."

The function definition I'm using is:


Does anyone know what's up with that?

tedster, what do you have your Oprea browser "id'd" as? It may make a difference.

It was worth a try, but I get the same results with Opera, IE or Moz.

I know that "onClick" works in the anchor tag with Opera, but some of my older sites used the "javascript:function()" technique. I hate the idea of reparing them all.

f12-> accept popup windows
then reload the page and try the link again...

Egg on my face!

I forgot that I had turned off javascript to escape from a perpetual pop-up window loop on a spammy site.

Clearly I need more sleep. See y'all later.

I get nailed by that one all the time.

The other one that gets me is the referring url. I most always run with referrers off.

I've suffered from "F12 Oversight" on more than a few occasions myself... it all depends on how my coffee pot is holding out. ;)
