javascript error


hope someone can help it appears that javascript is off in my copy of IE7 despite it being turned on in options.

Simply on http://www.cookersrus.co.uk on my local machine I see no menu bars but from any other system I do. Bit difficult when you are testing a site!!

If I type <body onload="alert('howdy');"> into a web page and view then I see the message howdy  which I assumed meant java was working.

has anyone any ideas



RE: javascript error

If it's just that one site that's not working, then chances are it's not you that has JavaScript turned off.

Do you have any ad blockers or 3rd-party tools (internet security software, etc) that could be blocking some JavaScript? Does the site work for you in other browsers?

If it's your site, my advice is to not use JavaScript to write out the nav (you've seen why). If it's not, then I'd give up on it and take your custom to a site that works properly without JavaScript.

Hope this helps,

RE: javascript error


thanks for that, if I use another pc then IE7 shows the  site perfectly it's only on my development machine so perhaps I have a corrupt installation of IE7
