Open window problem (Yes, I am a rookie....)


Recommended Posts


hope somebody knows the solution to my problem.


I want to open a photogallery in a new window, after clicking the button on the home page of course.

Now opening a new window is not the problem, the tricky part is to get rid of any and all surrounding elements, such as directory, links, scrollbars etc. etc.

I really want a BLANK window, and it seems to work with the function window.open, although even I set all the params to NO, it keeps showing the "links" bar (the space where you type in the URL) and I cannot get rid of it.


I use the following code (and IE 8 as standard browser):






Please note: see the location=no param? it doesn't do it's job.......


Is there somebody out there with a solution? It would be really appreciated.

Dear Eric,

thank you so much for your contribution. I also tried your suggestion (as I did earlier with the one Stefan provided) but again, your solution doesn't solve my problem and the code is (except for popup.php - which program I do not have) in essence the same as mine.

Could it be my browser (IE 8) or the way it is configured?

Thanks again,

I am, BY FAR, the least experienced one to answer you. You have heard from two of our top experts herein.


One comment: Eric's answer seems to imply working with PHP, which requires a few things. First the document needs to be saved with a .php extension rather than .html. Then it needs to be on a server that offers a "php-engine". (Most do). You can load a program like WAMP (Free.) on to your computer which will allow you to run php files locally on your home computer.


Hope I'm not "preaching to the choir!"

OK, guys. I have PHP on the host server and on my development server here, so I am going to try it again with

the PHP extension.

Thanks for the understanding and all the help sofar.
