View Full Version : Browser validation
04-07-1999, 10:24 AM
Is it possible to pick up a copy of AOL's browser, for use in site development? I am getting a couple complaints about a feature on my site, but am not sure how to go about troubleshooting it, without seeing it with my own eyes.
The site is www.cgspouses.net (http://www.cgspouses.net)
The feature in question are my graphical "categories" at the top, with the mouseover function. They are all SSI's and called up using the "include" command - I suspect this is part of the trouble. User states that the categories "disappear" under the main logo graphic underneath.

SSI is done 100% on the server, before the user (or the browser) ever sees it. That will have nothing at all to do with a browser problem.
AOL's browser is just IE 4.0 with AOL's interface. There shouldn't be a difference. Looking at your site, I don't see any obvious problems (looks nice, too http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif)
How many AOL users have had this problem?

Thanks for the info on the AOL browser, I didn't know that! Makes me *relax* a little about not checking it specifically there - anyway, this is ONE AOL user, on a Mac . . . (and thanks for the nice words - it's a redesign, just went live with it about 10 days ago!)

Make that two users- the problem also occurs with IE for the Macintosh.
What's happening is that the smaller images are getting overlaid by the CGSpouses.net banner.
How do you fix it?
<a href="http://www.cgspouses.net/people/" onmouseover="filter('b513','b263')" onmouseout="filter('b513','b25')"><img src="http://www.cgspouses.net/graphics/people3.gif" name="b513" border=0 width=43 height=23 align=right></a>
<a href="http://www.cgspouses.net/" onmouseover="filter('e431','e201')" onmouseout="filter('e431','e913')"><img src="http://www.cgspouses.net/graphics/main.gif" name="e431" border=0 width=45 height=23 align=right></a>
<-- add this
<img src="http://www.cgspouses.net/graphics/logo_main.gif" width=599 height=64 border=0 align=left>
I hope that helps! http://www.aota.net/ubb/smile.gif

Jacob, if we get to nominate our favorite Macsters, you're my guy!!
I think we're all set . . . I had tried to sneak that by with one BADLY placed
tag, and it was a no-go!
Thanks a bunch!
