Not seeing links in Front Page site

Jan 17, 2013 11:07 PM

Hi there. 

I use DW.

My wife loves Front Page and its descendants.

On this page of her site:  http://darrowby.com/planned.htm  there are links to other pages at the bottom.  On my computer I can only see the blue graphic dots, not the links.

Do you know why?

 

Thanks.  Sure hope my account, after a couple years, is still set up for "instant notification."

    I'm not sure you'll get an answer because Front Page isn't something most people use as this is a Dreamweaver forum. I can see you have used java applets for the links so it's most likely something to do with that. What though I don't know because I don't know anyone or come across any well constructed website which would use such a method.

    Is Java turned off in your browser?

     

    With the massive push lately to get people to remove Java from their machines due to security issues, it may be best to rethink the way that page is designed.

    >I think java is on.  I use one thing on my sites, for encrypting e-mail addresses,

    >and I can see those okay.

     

    That's most likely javascript, not java

     

    >If there's a way to test that?

     

    Go here and see what it says.

     

    http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

     

    If you don't have java or the web plugin installed it will say this:

     

    "No working Java was detected on your system.
    Install Java by clicking the button below."

     

    But I would not suggest installing it since it is known to have severe security flaws.

    If you have the latest  Firefox (18.0 or 18.1), it comes with Java disabled for security reasons.   

     

    You can read more about it below:

    No Java = no Java Applets.  Which brings up a more serious question,  why is your wife using Java for menus?   Plain old text links would be more web friendly.
