    Does anyone know how the makers of this site (or this forum) do to block any links until the page is completly loaded (or stoped)??

    It surely do in the forum's page... when an image is slow to load, you can't follow any link...

    I'll ask waddy about that.

    There is no blocking. Links work perfectly before the images are loaded. I should know sínce the images on NTFS load really slow for me (for some reason) even though I'm on 10Mbit.

    And you can't even block if you wanted to. Unless you Javascripted all links. But that's biiiiitchy.

    The *****y part follows:
    PHP:
    <SCRIPT>
    doneLoading false;

    function 
    jumpTo(url){
        if(
    doneLoading){
            
    location url;
        }
    }
    </SCRIPT>


    <BODY onLoad="doneLoading = true">

     <A HREF="Javascript: jumpTo('http://whereever.com')">Click</A>

    </BODY>
    But I personally think it's a bad and unnecessary idea.

    I'm using IE 6.0... don't know why i'm the only one to experience this... I wanted to know that cause we had a problem (at my job) with a page that feeezed whenever a user was licking a link before the pages were completly loaded... Actually, the programmers who coded that placed javascript in the midle of the body tag and sometimes the user was calling a functions before it was declared... which resulted to page freeze. They reviewed the code and everything works ok now :)

    Thanks for replying!

    Hey Swi - I don't think you are nuts and I know exactly what you are talking about.

    I have had to sit here and wait until someone's "oversized" signature loaded until I could click on a link.

    Okay, maybe not fair - someone's signature that was hosted by a less than optimized (speedy) site - perhaps - anyway I also use IE6 and am on cable - so - perhaps we are the only two?????

    OK, I'll tell you why. It's because I'm running Adshield.
