Hi guys,

I got a problem. I intend to put a background music on my forum and decided to put the music in a popup. So whenever someone enters the web URL, the popup wil automatically pop up with the song automatically playing.

I've done the necessary codings and found 1 problem. In order for the popup to pop up, I'll need to type the URL plus the filename(e.g www.mrlavita.com/index.html) instead of just the URL (www.mrlavita.com). I've editted the javascript for the popup in the index.html file and at the same time has a code which redirects www.mrlavita.com to www.mrlavita.com/phpbb2 where the forum is.

I need the popup to pop up when I'm typing www.mrlavita.com only. How can I do that?

Any help is very much appreciated!

Thanks!

The pop-up is being blocked by a pop-up blocker in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. Because you're using a redirect, the bar that indicates that a pop-up has been blocked disappears. You can either tell the user to allow pop-ups for your site and reload the page or to click a link that activates the pop-up so that the browser recognizes it as legitimate and doesn't block it. That's the price for website authors having abused pop-ups for advertisements.

I've actually input the URL in my firefox and IE to allow popups for this URL.
Seems the prob is ont with the popup blocker.
When u typed the URL http://www.mrlavita.com/index.html, the popup will pop out.But if you type just http://www.mrlavita.com, the popup doesn't pop out.

Seems the prob is [not] with the popup blocker.Okay, I just tried adding “mrlavita.com” to the pop-up blocker exceptions lists for Firefox 1.5 and Internet Explorer 7 RC1. I visited http://www.mrlavita.com/ in both browsers: prior to adding the exception, I would see the bar that indicates that a pop-up has been blocked; after adding the exception the pop-ups were initiated normally when visiting that URI . Maybe pop-ups are only showing for you at the URI http://www.mrlavita.com/index.html because you've been too specific and only disabled the blocker for that one page.

Try adding the mentioned entry to your pop-up blocker exception lists. I'm not sure how you would do this in Internet Explorer 6; perhaps you would add your website to the list of trusted sites.
