Bushey's Webcam?


Recommended Posts

 

does anyone else get the effect in IE7 that it appears to refresh the page every 5 secs but shows the same timed image, but in firefox it shows the new timed image

 

Yep, I am getting that too. Hadn't noticed as I use FF as my default browser but summat seems broken with IE7!

 

 

it does include the disclaimer in the html though

"Knocked together in under a minute so excuse the rubbish markup!"

 

 

does <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5"> need to be in the body not the head ?, and is it terminated correctly ?

:o:)

Looks fine and it needs to be in the head and not in the body.

All META elements go in the HEAD and they aren't terminated in HTML4. It may have been knocked up in five minutes but I do have a bit of pride in my markup: it does validate to HTML4 Strict ;) And no, the rest of the site isn't done by me!! I went with the META REFRESH element over Javascript as it was quicker to code and browser support should have been a little better over the spectrum, I guess I need to have a look at some alternatives if lots of people are going to be hitting it with IE7.

 

On further investigation, it appears IE7 has META REFRESH disabled by default. See here for how to turn it back on:

thanks for the response, I have had a look at my IE7 settings and meta refresh is enabled, so it's not that

OK, here's one in java script:

If everyone could test that in your browser of choice -- IE5/6/7 tend to be the awkward ones -- that'd be ace, as I don't have access to my testbed at the moment. If that works for everyone I'll replace the main page with that and keep the dial-up page as the META REFRESH, non-JavaScript one.

 

Cheers!

 

EDIT: The forum keeps re-writing "JavaScript" to "java script" for some reason. Gah.

EDIT2: Now using the JavaScript version as the main link.

Stef if your still reading this, can you get rid of the TAS Suzuki banner from the lighting bar as it blocks off 1/4 of the webcam view.
