Are you using same color text on same color background? Possibly without realizing it?

No biggie on the rules, lots of folks miss them. I still need a link to or a copy of your problem page pasted in a message to help.

Well, that went well. Code works fine. I meant your page that you have trouble with. If that same page doesn't work on your server, it means it is likely that your server is adding something (like a script) to the page which conflicts with the splash script. If that's the trouble, I need a link to the page in a location where it is behaving badly. You don't have to put it up and make your page look bad, set up a demo in a side directory or stick the page up on your site and call it problem.htm. Once again, need to see the problem. BTW who's your host?

oh the reason I put the one from the Dynamic Drive Website is because thats exactly how it looks on my site except I changed what it says. My host is Yahoo Geocities. and it works it just wont show the text. BTW thanks for all your help.

Geocities huh, I happen to have experience, trouble shot a page on there for another person. They have lots of scripts they stick on there. In particular, they use the variables 'i' and 'j'. I see 'i' is used in this script but not 'j', try this modified version:


<html>

<head>
<title>Intro Screen...</title>

<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#FFFFFF">

<div id="splashcontainer" style="position:absolute;width:350px;"></div>

THANKS VERY MUCH it worked fine.

parmenti
04-07-2005, 08:07 AM
can I get this script to work on versions of IE above IE 4?

I have IE 6 and it just forwards to the redirect URL

Anything that can be done?

Or... is there a similar script that works on all newer versions?

Thanks for your help
