    Aussiefrogs website problem

    Lately when I have been viewing Aussiefrogs, the pages keep reloading. It seems that once a page has finished loading, it refreshes itself . This is quite a pain, especially if the page has a few pictures on it. It started happening after the new menu was put at the top of the page.

    Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?

    I have had the same problem (on MSI explorer). More pronounced on my iMac at home than the PC at work.

    Ah...

    Internet Explorer 4.0 is a bit "old" in the internet world. I don't think 4.0 properly supports DHTML (which is what the menu at the top of the forum is using) which is probably what is causin the problem. Internet Explorer 5.5 and newer has full support for DHTML... so you really need to download version 6 from:

    <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/ie" target="_blank">http://www.microsoft.com/ie</a>

    or

    for a nicer browser with a smaller download, try Opera

    <a href="http://www.opera.com" target="_blank">http://www.opera.com</a> and direct download from <a href="http://www.opera.com/download/index.dml?platform=windows" target="_blank">http://www.opera.com/download/index.dml?platform=windows</a>

    Happy downloading

    Derek

    Interesting isn't it gibgib?

    I've used the site at work (XP Pro, IE6 SP1) with no worries, and on Safari, Camino, Netscape and IE5.2 on my Mac, and IE6 on my mother's machine with XP Pro and IE6 SP1 but there aren't any issues.

    I get regular calls at work telling me 'your site doesn't work'
    Our site leaves a temporary cookie which isn't properly supported in older browsers (it has to to track what people put in their trolley/cart). After talking people through a browser upgrade the problem is solved.

    Gibgib does the forum leave a Cookie do you know? To track user sessions? I'm assuming it would. If people have security settings on "highest" in Internet Explorer, the cookie may be blocked causing the site to refresh and keep trying to place a cookie on their machine.

    Can those with the problem check that setting? In Internet Explorer it'd be under Tools, Internet Options, and click on the Security tab. My PC's run on 'medium' and have no problems.

    Thanks Derek... but we have the problem occuring in at least three browsers: IE4, IE6 and AOL's browser, whatever that is. You others who also have the problem - has it just started recently, ie, since the new menu bar has appeared at the top?

    I've tried to download Opera several times (including today and about three months ago), but I can never get their website to load .

    AOL owns Netscape so I'd imagine it'd be a 'customised' version of Netscape.

    I know the menu bar doesn't display on Apple Safari. I get

    Have you checked whether your browser is allowing cookies? (whoever came up with that name, I don't know.....)

    yeah it has only happened since the new menu bar.... it happens quite inconsistantly though, sometimes it wont happen at all where in other vists it may happen 3-4 times depending on the length i am logged on.

    is annoying when you halfway through reading something then the page refreshes

    IE6 and it's happening here.

    Seems to happen just after I've opened the page and I start scrolling down.

    Derek.
    The "refresh" thing happens to me sometimes using Safari as well Derek (the latest version, I didn't notice it with the beta). For me its usually when I'm in the middle of writing a reply. Moreover anything that I've already written disappears when the refresh happens. The same thing happens with Safari if I use the back and forward buttons when writing a reply. Anything I've typed in disappears. This doesn't occur with IE.

    As you say, the "menu bar" doesn't work in Safari, either. Pity, because its way faster than IE on my PB12"

    Cheers

    Pretty serious problem. Thanks for raising it.

    OK, I have left the DHTML (title bar up the top) on the main forum summary, FAQ & search pages only. This should minimize annoyance & losing your typing.
    A refresh on the above pages shouldn't be of any harm.

    See how that goes cheers!
