Javascript popup problem

Post by shasha » Sun Mar 28, 2010 5:47 pm

If you click on a picture it's supposed to open a little window with a larger picture of the item. It only opens up the window and never shows the picture. It also does this in IE8.0 so it's probably not an AB problem, but I'm kind of stuck.

It does work for me at my office which isn't really good since the boss probably doesn't appreciate me shopping online while I am there.... :mrgreen:

I can get it to work in FireFox which I am not a huge fan of. AB has been my main browser since it first came out.

I did install the latest java and flash hoping that something would help, but no dice.

I wish I could be more of help shasha. Clicking on picture on the site, does enlarge here with Avant 11_0 build 46.

It appears that there is nothing wrong with the site.

That site only works correctly in IE7 compatibility mode view. Please do the following:

- Open the site in IE8 and select "compatibility mode" (click the button shown in the image)

- Go to Set Avant to use IE 8 Rendering Engine, download and run IEMode, select "IE8+"
- Restart Avant, the page should now work in Avant and IE8

Thanks for the tips. I got it working in IE8, but even with the compatability tool it's still coming up with no pictures.

I tried it holding the shift button while clicking IE8+. I also tried IE7 mode.

Strange.

Strange indeed, because the IE7 button should force all sites to compatibility mode.

Did you remember to restart Avant?

Have you renamed avant.exe to anything else? If so, run IEMode with the name as a parameter (IEMode newname.exe -or- IEMode c:\path\newname.exe).

Failing that, set it back to IE8+ then in IE8 go to Tools >> Compatibility View Settings >> Add guitarcenter.com

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, I wanted to make sure that I went through the steps properly.

No dice, avant.exe was never renamed and it's in it's default location. I am pretty sure that the mode switcher is working because it repaired the GMail issue with the buttons I was having.

I did the compatability setting in IE8 and it works in IE8, but not in AB.

I did notice that the background color for the popup window is white in IE8 and it is gray in AB. I wonder if that's got something to do with it.

I've also disabled IE8's popup blocker and AB's popup and adblocker and added *guitarcenter* to the exception list. Still doesn't work.

Have you restarted Avant since changing the IE mode? You need to for each change.

Also clear your cache in case you are viewing a cached page: Tools >> Clear Records >> Clear All Records

Yeah, I've restarted the application as well as the computer several times and I have all the records cleared on each exit of AB.

Anything ticked on your Tools menu - such as "Disable Scripts"

It's definitely a flash problem. I can't even load this site in AB: http://www.dimarzio.com/site/

Works fine in IE8.

EDIT: It's the ad blocker. I disabled it a few times before and it never worked, but now it works...strange.

I guess it was OHS....operator head space. #-o
