View Full Version : URL masked with splash page iframe

11-13-2009, 10:36 PM
1) Script Title: Splash Page

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex3/dynamicsplash.htm

3) Describe problem: I have a splash page set up with a form so I can capture e-mail addresses. Upon submission of the form or clicking the "skip" button you are taken to the next page. The issue I have is that the URL stays the same the whole time, even upon further navigation through the website.

I'm wondering how to eliminate the iframe that masks the url upon navigating away from the splash page.

Page with splash code: http://iowademocrats.org/live

Your page is in violation of Dynamic Drive's usage terms (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/notice.htm), which, among other things, state that the script credit must appear in the source code of the page(s) using the script. Please reinstate the notice first.

I love the Iowa Dems. My best guess at the moment (it's late) is that on your splash.htm page, where you have:

<a href="http://iowademocrats.org/live">skip to live stream >></a>

Make that:

<a href="http://iowademocrats.org/live" target="_top">skip to live stream >></a>

That should take care of things if someone chooses to skip. However, if one submits an email address, that probably won't help. For that (submitting an email) I would try changing (on the splash.htm page again):

<form method="post" action="contact.php">


<form method="post" target="_top" action="contact.php">

This issue is possibly complicated by one or more of the other scripts involved (both client and server side), of which (one or more again) apparently have an error(s) which may or may not be impacting this situation. But, the advice I am giving you is the most straightforward method available for resolving this current issue.

My apologies for not having the disclaimer on there. I'll be sure to add it.

I'll give this a whirl next time we put a splash page up. Thanks very much for the assistance and I'm glad you like us!
