View Full Version : IFrame timeout blanks the page

07-11-2008, 03:29 PM
1) Script Title: IFRAME Scroller

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/iframe-scroller.htm

3) Describe problem: Hi. New Guy here. Apparently when the scroller times-out in the external.html page, the host page goes blank and has to be re-loaded to work.

1: Has anyone else encountered this problem?

2: Can the timeout be bypassed or can the script be set to a continuous loop.

Many thanks.

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.
It already has a loop on it, so when it reaches the end it just restarts.

Hi Nile,

Thanks for the response.

Yes, I know the Iframe loops. But only for a certain amount of time. After about 2 hours the entire host frame goes blank and the page has to be reloaded to work.

Here's the test page.

You sat there for 2 hours watching your page!?

NO! LOL !!

Shut down the site went for coffee and when I came back the host page was blank. Reloaded it and it came right back. But the problem persists.

After a period of inactivity - of after a certain number of times through the scroll, the host page goes blank.
