View Full Version : a... frames problem?

02 Mar 2005, 01:32
No idea if this was something i caused on installation, or what. But the installation went smoothly, the templates were added to each and every style.

Everytime i go to the vBChat.php page it loads, but before the chat window itself loads, the "vBChat.php?&do=chatFrameBlank" suddenly takes over the entire page. Causing it to go completely blank (with the page's background colour).

Any solutions? Because I'm 120% certain the templates are the way they came, and installed on every style (The result is the same on every style).

I'm running 3.0.5, btw, although I can't see how that'd make a difference on this sort of problem.

Thanks for an amazing hack.

The frame which loads "vBChat.php?&do=chatFrameBlank" is supposed to, that is a blank frame, a hidden iframe load then to put data into that one and another blank iframe, this way you dont see the chat frames refresh.

If nothing is happening it's possible you may have javascript turned off, or your browser is unable to support the javascript. The chat has been tested on IE & FireFox (latest versions) and it works successfully.

I really wish you were right, but I can very safely assure you this isn't a browser issue. I've tried it in IE6, Firefox as well as Opera, all to the same effect. I've also got about 25 members that all confirm the exact same operation. It's the sort of thing you have to see to believe, so... http://www.coalitionforums.com/forum/vBChat.php. Take a looksie. If you can sort this out, I will almost certainly pay for this hack. Except for it not working, it's very nice ;)

I found your problem, you have:
<script language="javascript">
if (top.location != location) top.location.href = location.href;

Either in your skins or somewhere in your code files, since the chat uses iframes, this javascript causes them to fail.

Take that code out and it shall work :)
