Re: trouble with Javascript Pop-up

Ah, no the page itself is not centered. I kept it to a small width, to avoid
issues with visibility on other systems. (ironically) The issue seems to
have been that I had my monitor set to 120 dpi, everyone else in the office
had it at 96. This actually affected how the program generated the HTML.
Doesn't solve the overall issue: I'm sure the website will look odd on a
different set-up, but, as far as I can tell, this is unavoidable to a degree
with Pub2003, and WSYWIG progs in general.

Don't yet have a test-page URL. The page is strictly in-house at this
point, since it really doesn't have content yet. I'll post back when I've
uploaded to the host. Thanks, David.

I was talking about some script to center your page on the monitor, vs. it
being left justified as by default...not your new window.

Are you using a laptop, and your friend a desktop with different
resolutions? A number of people have complained about the wide aspect
laptops, and viewing Publisher sites. If you are using a desktop to produce
the site, can you view it with another desktop? Is the resolution the same
on the two computers that you are using?

I guess the next step is to post the URL of your test page. Tell me where
the text link is supposed to be located on your page.

Let me clarify:
What works: the text link itself, the pop-up window generated
What's wrong: the location of the text link on different monitors (on my
coworker's monitor, for instance, it appears half-way down the page from
where it does on mine.)

Here's the text link code, which appears twice on the main page (and
"wanders" in different browsers):
<a href="testpage2.htm"

Here's the script for the pop-up:
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
Author: Eric King
This script is free to use as long as this info is left in
Featured on Dynamic Drive script library (
var win=null;
function NewWindow(mypage,myname,w,h,scroll,pos){
else if((pos!="center" && pos!="random") ||
// -->

There is a centering code, but in the script (for the new pop-up window),
not the text link, yes?

What I've done:
-placed text link in different locations, the only one that doesn't shift
different monitors is at the very top corner of the page
-placed the text link both layered over another object and in free space -
no effect
-used a script that linked an image instead - same problem, except now its
wandering image.

And no, no master page...learned that lesson my first time here!

I have never been able to layer a fragment box over any other design
element...surprised to hear it worked at all. The page generated should
fixed as far as width. Are you trying some sort of centering code? I have
seen text boxes lengthen when the text size is changed in the browser,
otherwise the user's monitor shouldn't make a difference. Perhaps if you
explained that in more detail.

You might play with the size of the fragment box...and you aren't using a
master page are you?

ARGH...happiness the link text seems to wander all
page, depending on the user's monitor settings. From a search of this
and some tests, it seems that this is partly due to layering the
over a text-box, but even then, when I move it to the open, the link
placed far down the page, as if making room for items above. Kinda
how to fix.

I grabbed and modified the following script from the publishermvps

<a href="BLOCKED'testpage.htm','windowname_window','toolbar=0,location=0,directories=0,status=0,menubar=0,scrollbars=0,resizable=0,width=428',

I inserted this code fragment into my document, published to web, and
likewise, published-to-web the document called testpage. Both the
webpage document (called index-test.htm) and testpage.htm reside in
folder on our network server. I assumed I could test this fragment
before actually putting the documents on our website, but the link
work. I get the hyperlink on the page (More...) but when I click on
nothing happens. I'm a bit confused.

Side question: will pop-up blockers be a problem for this code
actually have trouble on this site with that - this posting window

Thanks in advance for your help.
