View Full Version : Pop-up Window Stopped Working

11-13-2004, 02:49 PM
I'm not sure why my pop-up window just stopped working. I'm using a simple code - here it is:

<script type="text/javascript">
function openpopup(popurl) {
winpops = window.open(popurl,"","width=650, height=400, left=45, top=15, scrollbars=yes, menubar=yes, resizable=0")

<a href="javascript:Openpopup('http://www.geocities.com/omatkd/HolidayCelebration.htm')">Click here
for more info...</a>

Any ideas? Thanks!

The function is case sensitive, you need to use either Openpopup or openpopup, in both sections.

Actually the reason why the "O" in the second openpopup is in caps is because when I was posting this message the purple smilie face keeps appearing rather than "o" so I changed it. But in my acutal code both are the same....

Hmmm.... IDK what to tell you, i just used it and it worked, i just changed the "O" to "o" and like you said, the one in your script is an "o" well, got me, sorry, but it works ok for me..

Well I checked your site and the popup worked for me, using Firefox. I also tried in IE and it worked. The only problem I see is that 2 of your links (Math Trick, What's Your Sign?) have a semi-colon at the end of the javascript:
<a href="javascript:Openpopup('http://www.geocities.com/omatkd/[page].htm');">
If those 2 popups are the ones causing a problem, try removing it. If not, what browser are you using?

Thanks for your response. I really don't know why it wasn't working at the time but now it is! Thanks again!
