workaround for IE7 bug with frames
« on: Nov 30th, 2006, 4:15pm »

As you may know, IE7 has (at the time we write) a serious bug with frames and the BASE tag.
Basically, while since HTML2.0 it is perfectly legal to use this particular code both within HEAD and/or within BODY, IE7 ignores it if within the BODY.
 
A workaround is to add, for each page, with "Insert >HTML >At page start" this code:
 
<BASE target="_top">

I have read it three times - and had a go, but where do I find "page starts" within "insert" in order to paste: <BASE target="_top">

Open EasyWebEditor or 1SITE.
 
From the main menu, choose
"Insert"
from the list, click on
"HTML"
then choose
"At page start".
 
These indications are not valid if you are using a different software for your Web site....

If I use this code to make the site compatible with ie7. will the site still be compatible with the other browsers?

Yes, this is just a duplication of a code that already is on the page. IE7 needs it replicated.
The other browsers will just ignore the duplication.

Thank you for this info! So this "fix" should be inserted after the initial metatag data and after the <head> - correct?

yes the <base....> must be inserted in the "Format >Page properties >Script/Meta"
if you have some meta tag, you can insert the <base > after them. Or before. It's the same.
 
please notice that <head> is inserted by the program automatically, you must not insert <head> or it will be a duplicate

Great! Thank you for the info. I keep telling people to go back to Explorer 6.0, as 7.0 seems to be a monster and reeking havoc with 9 out of 10 people. Thanks again fo rthis fix. It saves from having to redo an entire website.

I inserted the tag in the Index page. My son, who has IE7 says it still does not work properly. Do I need to insert the tag on every htm page?

Hello,
 
I have seen the workaround solution for the IE bug; and have applied it to all pages, however it doesn't seem to work!?
 
I have done what it says, such as:
 
From main menu, I chose "Insert > HTML > At Page Start"  Then I pasted  "<BASE TARGET=_TOP">  in the large box, and clicked OK.  
 
Am I missing something??  Please Advise!!

Hey there - I did it and it works!
You got the formula backwards
<BASE target="_top">  
 
and on every page, too! I have some 200 of them!
 
Go for it

It is
 <BASE target="_top">  
not
"<BASE target=_top">  
 
On all pages (you may use CTRL + and CTRL - to span pages).
 
Also, you must republish all the website after the change (to force a complete republish, press the All button on the bottom left before pressing the big Publish button)
 
Last but not least you may have to delete the browser's "cache" (internal memory), i.e. force the browser to reload the new pages  (SHIFT + Reload button is normally sufficient; Reload button: between the address bar and the red X stop button)

Hi,
 
I appreciate all your help!!
 
Actually, I did have the formula correct, as I pasted it in - I just mis-typed it in my question.
 
I also did click on the "all" button prior to publishing, so it must be the browsers "cache" that needs to be deleted.  
 
I have never done this, and I'm having some difficulty, what page do I find the reload button on?  
 
Sue
