View Full Version : Fairwell window launcher script

This script is supposed to open up a window as user exits site, yet no matter where i place the Onunload script it also pops up if user presses internal links. Question is how do i make it only operate when user leaves site? i.e. Please how do I exclude mysite.com?

Fairwell window launcher script code

function openpopup(){
//configure "seeyou.htm and the window dimensions as desired

function get_cookie(Name) {
var search = Name + "="
var returnvalue = "";
if (document.cookie.length > 0) {
offset = document.cookie.indexOf(search)
if (offset != -1) { // if cookie exists
offset += search.length
// set index of beginning of value
end = document.cookie.indexOf(";", offset);
// set index of end of cookie value
if (end == -1)
end = document.cookie.length;
returnvalue=unescape(document.cookie.substring(offset, end))
return returnvalue;

function loadpopup(){
if (get_cookie('popped')==''){

Onunload script

<body onunload="loadpopup()">

Just for the record is what im suggesting from the script impossible?

No, just fraught with inconsistencies across browsers and likely to be blocked anyway in those browsers that would support it by their default pop up blocking settings. In addition, it is generally considered obnoxious to do something like this anyway and not a topic (judging from the response you've received so far) of much interest to folks in these forums. Nothing personal.

What would be even better than a popup window would be a clingy girlfriend who grabs you as you try to leave her website, crying,
and begs you not to go out with the boys again tonight.
