Mood:  irritated
Topic: HTML Questions
I am trying to get a "status bar" script working on my mother's website that I copied from the Angelfire section. When I hit the preview link it works fine but when I save it then try to view it through IE nothing happens!!! I know it has something to do with the tag but I have tried everything I can think of but can't get it working. Can someone look at it and email me with a solution???

your script is ok it is the extra <html> and head tags stopping it...
remove them and it will work...

look for code that looks like the following and remove those HTML AND HEAD TAGS there: aand also move the title up and place it after the HEAD tag that is at the top of your page....

<body bgcolor="#000000" text="#ffffff" link="#000000" alink="#ffa500" vlink="#ff0000">
<basefont size="3">

Well see i failed to remember(a senior moment) that the onload script code does not work on bannered sites when I troubleshooted this poster...

so the status bar script doesn't work on free sites with AF banners....but I tried script without the 'onload' function and that didn't work either....

anyone here know of a status bar script that is working on your site with AF banners.

Dean I see you didn't fix the body tag like I mentioned to you via e-mail...where did you go? lol
