Click Here To View All Answers...

First question I got is What year did Express Page (iPage web hosting) begin? Hoping for any answer. My 2nd question... I tried a variety of scripts to hide the destination of a hyperlink (at the bottom-left of your browser), including the well-know javascript.

: onMouseOver = window.status etc..... But it just won't work, I get this stupid eror message concerning a missing ';' and ****......

Is there any other way to hide my hyperlink destination or does anybody know how to prevent the error message?.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Hmm, well if his customers are anything like mine they panic when they see anything that doesn't say "Ahh rosy rosy forsooth the next page is loading" as opposed to "http://123.54.565.12/index.asp?marathon=false" which just tends to overexcite them...

Thats one of my pet peeves, I almost never visit pages that I can't see the destination URL first, but thats just me.....

Not really the best way to debug - dismissing error messages as 'stupid'. The interpreter is telling you you're doing something wrong, and don't take it guess is a problem with quotes. Somebody.


Help if you'd show the JS....

P.s. the best way to 'prevent' error messages is to prevent errors (although you can suppress them with.

Window.onerror = function(){return true;}.

And the newest versions support more sophisticated error handling)..

Thanx Pixelmonkey, but I've done that and it just won't work... I build my iPage site with FrontPage and I actually don't no anything about Java or JavaScript. I found this script on a regular javascript-copy/paste-site. I can't give you the script now cause I'me at work. But I'll give it to ya soon. How do I use an 'onMouseOver script' in Frontpage anyway? I think it's my lack of knowledge that's the problem but I just can't get it working...

PS: The reason to hide my URL is this... I've got a '.com' site, but it's not my real URL. It's linked to an other free provider with an URL like.


It just doesn't look professional to show that when you've got a '.com' site...

Ok, I understand... but what happens when the surfer sees the address in the location bar? They are going to see.


Anyway. And, the location is always on top.... so your not really any more professional...

No Dr. Web, you're wrong about that... When someone visit a site/page via a hyperlink on my site, the URL remains.


........ Try it.....

But, can anyone tell me how to use javcascript with frontpage (I know you don't like frontpage at all, but it suits me)..

Comment #7

Ahhh yes, frames..

So you've fooled half the people... the ones who never click a link, and the ones who pay no attention to the status bar...

Man I love that song Dazed. Very Blink 182ish. Wont be suprised if I hear it on the radio soon =).

You guys just need a little work on main vocals and lead guitar but the rythm section is just about perfect. Sounds great...

<a onmouseover="window.status='You are now visiting another page';return true;" onmouseout="window.status='';return true;" href="">My Photos!</a>.

Keep it all on one line! change the 'You are now visiting another page' to whatever text you would like to display, and the.


To the url you want to link to. as for the My Photos!, change it also..

Have fun with it!.
