View Full Version : Links Not Working?

05-02-2007, 07:29 PM
1) Script Title: Image Thumbnail Viewer II

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/thumbnail2.htm

3) Describe problem: I hope that this issue hasn't already been discussed, I didn't find it anywhere. I am using the thumbnail viewer II on our site and it works great! Love it! The only problem I am having is that I am unable to get the links to work to enable the user to click on the small image (gif) to open up a large picture in a new window. There must be something silly I am doing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.:)

I do apologize, as I should have included the url to our website. It is as follows: http://www.oldhickory.com/html/newitems.html

This script doesn't do that. And, as this script does open the larger image right on the page, why would you want it to?

Thanks for the info. My boss wants this script to open the larger images. I guess our reps are complaining. Picky, picky.

What the script can do is open a page onclick of the larger image:

<a href="../catalog/deaconbench.jpg" rel="enlargeimage::mouseover" rev="loadarea::../catalog/deaconbench.jpg"><img src="../catalog/deaconbench.gif"></a>

However, that will not be a new window. It could be made to be one by editing the script here:

imageHTML='<a target="_new" href="'+dest+'">'+imageHTML+'</a>'

Now, this is a bit tricky. But, if you have your rev attributes set correctly as shown in my previous post, you can get the thumbnails to use those as well to open a new window onclick by adding this script right before your closing </body> tag:

<script type="text/javascript">
function link_em(){
var link_func=function(e){
var e=window.event? window.event : e? e : null;
var lk=e&&e.target? e.target.parentNode : e&&e.srcElement? e.srcElement.parentNode : null;
return false;
for (var i_tem = 0, ls=document.links; i_tem < ls.length; i_tem++)
if ( typeof window.addEventListener != "undefined" )
window.addEventListener( "load", link_em, false );
else if ( typeof window.attachEvent != "undefined" )
window.attachEvent( "onload", link_em );
else {
if ( window.onload != null ) {
var oldOnload = window.onload;
window.onload = function ( e ) {
oldOnload( e );
window.onload = link_em;

Thank you so much for all of the suggestions! I will definitely give them a try.
