Popunder problem in Netscape

They insist on popping over, not under

A couple of years back, there was discussion on this topic here:
[webmasterworld.com...]

I have been unable to persuade popunders to pop under in Netscape. Yes, I know they can be irritating, and people block them :-) But I find about half my site visitors still receive them, AND I get about 25% of newsletter subs from the sub form on the popup. So I am happy to continue.

However, Netscape is designed not to allow popunders, but there seem to be workarounds. Is there a workable solution. The comments from 2 years back don't work for me!

Best wishes

Hi Tony - Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

The following is part of a pop-under script I'm still using. It ain't too elegant, but does pop-under properly in IE, Netscape 6, Mozilla and Opera:

function loadpopunder()
{
var mypage='http://www.domain.com/popunder_location.htm';
var myname='popup';
var w=400;
var h=300;
var scroll='no';
var winl = (screen.width - w) / 2;
var wint = (screen.height - h) / 2;
winprops = 'height='+h+',width='+w+',top='+wint+',left='+winl+',scrollbars='+scroll+',resizable';
win = window.open(mypage, myname, winprops);
win.window.blur();
window.focus()
}

Not sure if this helps!

thanks so much. Could you give an URL of yours that this is working on?

Best wishes

Edit, Preferences, Advanced, Scripts & Plugins.

Make sure you are allowing scripts to 'Raise or lower windows' - otherwise it'll never work!

function openpopup(){
var popurl="popup.php"
winpops=window.open(popurl,"","width=425,height=485,")
}

openpopup()

This is a script I am using for a popup at the moment... can someone tell me how to turn it into a pop-under? It should be simple but I am struggling!

Thanks

Asher
