Sometimes, when I click on “zoom pictures” on a project page, it doesn’t do the usual zoom function, with the window that appears over the page, with the “next” and “previous” functions; rather, it goes to a new URL showing the first picture enlarged. There is no “next” and “previous”, so I can only see the first pic. Even if I’m looking at one of the others on the project page, clicking on zoom takes me to the URL of the first one. This is happening in Maveric777’s miter key jig: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/31169#comment-673766. The URL of the zoomed picture is http://lumberjocks.com/assets/pictures/projects/134836.jpg .

Not sure, never noticed anything amiss with my puter.

Hang on to your hats, I’m about to get all technical and stuff…

Looking at how the page is constructed, there’s a link to the zoomed image, and then at some point that link is overridden by a programming language your browser executes called “JavaScript”. Having the fallback to that original link means that browsers without JavaScript enabled (mostly something us nerds do) can still kind of use the page.

I can get the results you’re seeing if I right-click and select “Open Link In New Tab”. I don’t know what browser you’re using (I’m using Firefox on Linux), but it’s quite possible that your browser uses control or alt or shift or something else as a modifier to tell the browser to “treat this click as an open in new tab”.

It’s also possible that there’s something about your browser and the JavaScript that, for whatever reason, aren’t compatible on that page.

That’s about as deep as I want to go into the problem… maybe Martin’s watching? It’d probably be helpful if you tell us what operating system and browser (and browser version) you’re using…

Good explanation, Dan.

JJohnston, make sure you have jasvascript enabled in your browser.

I looked into it, and it was enabled. No change. I have had malware problems recently, and my computer hasn’t been the same after some “scorched earth” cleanup.

Yeah, sounds like something in the scorched earth cleanup is messing with your browser security settings.

I haven’t delved into the JavaScript, there’s also a chance that some weird interaction that’s not just on your computer is causing that attachment between your click and the JavaScript code is happening, some timing issue or something, but the lack of people screaming about this suggests that somewhere between malware and internet security applications and whatever else, your browser is killing JavaScript on some pages.

(It could even be that for whatever reason your internet security app is thinking that those pages have malicious JavaScript in them and is killing it just for them)

I never had the problem until today when I looked at Jjohnson’s DD setup. It’s a nuisance when it doesn’t work right. ’;o(

Same thing happens to me SOMETIMES. I have Java Enabled. BUT! I think it might be something else that might or might not have something to do with my Computer. I can look at one Project, zoom works fine, go to the next one, it opens as described above. Next one, okay. etc. etc. The only real problem that DOES Bother me is that you can only get to see the First picture in a Larger Format.

For me, it’s been going on for a Month or so. BUT! It does make “Save Picture” a lot easier (ONLY the First One) ...LOL.. I can do that in Zoom Mode but I have to be Quick on the Click i.e. as soon as the Zoom starts to appear, CLICK! menu comes up, then picture comes in and “Save Picture As” is there. To slow and the “Other Menu” is there.

Hey! At least we don’t have that BS “Pop In” “Your Computer Has A Virus etc. etc.” Man! I close that Page REAL QUICK!! and if you have a Few Pages open it just keeps chasing you.

What can I say. Computers are more fun than TV. All you can do is sit there and look at the Stupid Thing. Nothing Exciting ever happens. ...LOL… ;-}

Now we have a PINK Elephant showing up in Bedrooms for all the guys that should join the 40/40 Club!! i.e.”40% of Men Over 40 Years of age SUFFER from Erectile Dysfunction.” HELLO!! I’m a lot older than that and all it takes to “Cure Me” is a Smile and a Wink from a Lady ....”I’M CURED”!!!!

OOPPS! Is this the Coffee Lounge? Oh my Goodness It’s Not! Sorry Martin! ;-}

It also happens with Craig's workshop (and probably others, too).

Works fine here. What browser are you using?
