Javascript in posts (12 posts)

    Question from javascript and php newbie....
    Why does my javascript work in a plain html page (see http://www.zygosis.co.uk/wp/java.html) but not when I enter the same code in a post?
    Thanks for any help - it's been driving me silly tonight trying to figure it out.

    Because a plain html page just outputs what you input.
    WP sends what you write through filters and such.
    This has been asked before - how to get it to work - but I can't recall an answer. A search should turn stuff up though.

    That URL should of course be http://www.zygosis.co.uk/wp/java.html
    Here's the same script in a post http://www.zygosis.co.uk/wp/index.php?cat=16. clicking on the link does nothing.
    Thanks

    I did try searching on 'Java' and 'Javascript' before posting without throwing up the necessary help. Anyone point to the previous relevant posts?
    Thanks

    Looking at what you want, why not add a 'target="_blank"' to the link ?

    What I'm after is a new window but without the menu/toolbars and with a fixed height and width (the links will be to some images that look cleaner in a simple window that matches the image size).

    Can anyone help? or point me in the direction of relevant resources?
    I'm always keen to learn how as well as be handed a solution on a plate!

    Nope. That don't work either - see http://www.zygosis.co.uk/wp/index.php?cat=16
    This is really disappointing.......
    Thanks though for an elegant suggestion.

    Attaboy. That's what I wanted.
    Many, many thanks!

    Spoke too soon....Works fine as long as I only want it to happen once per page. If I add others (I want a series of pop-up images from posts on the same page) then every one defaults to the first link entered.
    Can anyone add a further refinement?

    Drat it. Of course the answer is to include javascript in the 'head' section of index.php!
    Sorry to take up airtime - hope my tortured path helps someone else.
