Website down?

Postby AJW99 » Sun Nov 07, 2004 3:38 pm

I can't seem to access the main web-page of the Stiarway to Hell site (index2.html). Does anybody know if they are experiencing problems? <p></p><i></i>

It does seem to be a little ill at the moment...<br>
<br>
It works, sort of, in Internet Explorer, but displays the side frame as non-html gibberish most of the time.<br>
<br>
Firefox gives me a white screen, having transferred me to a page intended to tell me that I'm not using a frames-enabled browser (lie), but which apparently doesn't work properly either.<br>
<br>
Doh!<br>
<br>
Strange things going on....<br>

It doesn't work for a number of reasons, all contained within index2.html:<br>
<br>
1) There's a missing ">" bracket at the end of the first frame statement i.e.<br>
<br>
Change this:<br>
<br>
document.write("<FRAME SRC='menu.html' NAME='Menuframe' FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 NORESIZE");<br>
<br>
to:<br>
<br>
document.write("<FRAME SRC='menu.html' NAME='Menuframe' FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 NORESIZE>");<br>
<br>
2) The holding frameset is terminated too early so the browser only thinks that there is a single frame in the frame set.<br>
<br>
To correct change this (i.e. move the first </frameset> to after the second </frameset<!--EZCODE EMOTICON START >: --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/mad.gif ALT=">:"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
<br>
document.write("<FRAMESET COLS=15%,85% BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0>");<br>
document.write("<FRAME SRC='menu.html' NAME='Menuframe' FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 NORESIZE");<br>
document.write("</FRAMESET>");<br>
document.write("<FRAMESET ROWS=0%,100% BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0 FRAMEBORDER=0>");<br>
document.write("<FRAME SRC='banner.html' NAME='Bannerframe' NORESIZE SCROLL=NO MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0>");<br>
document.write("<FRAME NAME='Bodyframe' SRC='" + page + ".html' SCROLLING=AUTO FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=5>");<br>
document.write("</FRAMESET>");<br>
document.write("<NOFRAMES>A frames-compatible browser is required to view these pages!</NOFRAMES>");<br>
<br>
to:<br>
<br>
document.write("<FRAMESET COLS=15%,85% BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0>");<br>
document.write("<FRAME SRC='menu.html' NAME='Menuframe' FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINWIDTH=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 NORESIZE");<br>
document.write("<FRAMESET ROWS=0%,100% BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0 FRAMEBORDER=0>");<br>
document.write("<FRAME SRC='banner.html' NAME='Bannerframe' NORESIZE SCROLL=NO MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=0>");<br>
document.write("<FRAME NAME='Bodyframe' SRC='" + page + ".html' SCROLLING=AUTO FRAMEBORDER=0 MARGINHEIGHT=0 MARGINWIDTH=5>");<br>
document.write("</FRAMESET>");<br>
document.write("</FRAMESET>");<br>
document.write("<NOFRAMES>A frames-compatible browser is required to view these pages!</NOFRAMES>");<br>
<br>
3) For some reason the banner frame has been hidden too (maybe I shouldn't be mentioning this as I think that's a good thing) i.e.:<br>
<br>
document.write("<FRAMESET ROWS=0%,100% BORDER=0 FRAMESPACING=0 FRAMEBORDER=0>");<br>
<br>
I think this used to be "...20%, 80%...".<br>
<br>
<br>
<br>
If all the above is fixed, STH should be back to normal...<br>

Cheers for spotting the incredibly sloppy html ... have just modified the root level frameset as per your suggestions, so this should fix the 'Whats New', 'About, 'History', 'Wanted', 'Support Us', 'Links', 'Credits', 'Copyright' and 'Contact Us' pages. They appear to be working OK in Netscape now, which they weren't doing before.<br>
<br>
I'll fix the remaining pages this evening when I get home from work. <br>
<br>
Thanks again!<br>
<br>
D.<br>
<br>
P.S. the banners will be disappearing altogether soon! <p></p><i></i>

Right, that should be everything sorted.<br>
<br>
Rich/Andrew/Melchett: can you confirm that things are looking ok from your end? <p></p><i></i>

Yep - it all works for me now in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. <br>
<br>
AJW99 - try clearing your browser cache or forcing a refresh (in IE CTRL+F5 or Firefox CTRL+R).<br>

Dave, I should say that Oregano 1 seems to work with the site. I haven't yet checked WXL or Netsurf however. <p></p><i></i>
