The link color does not change after visiting the link

In my homepage, i define in the body both the alink and vlink for the specific link. My home page is defined as frame page. When someone click on the left frame(the links are in orange), he should get the page on the right frame, and the on the left frame, it should change to purple. It works with IE, but not in Netscape.
By the way, my page is www.shleppers.com.

Thanks Alon

put the following in the BODY tag of all pages that are loaded into the right frame (moving.htm, packing.htm):
  onLoad="top.frames[1].location.reload()"

if this won't work, you might also want to try:

  onLoad="setTimeout('top.frames[1].location.reload()', 1000)"

I think it is 'a bug' in NS. When you reload the page, the visited link is changed to purple.
So it works but not immediately, only after reloading the page.
The alink color does work. When you click on the link, it changes to purple, but changes to orange when you are ready with clicking the mouse.

What version of Netscape are you doing it with? I tried it with Netscape 3.03 and the links change to purple after I click on them.

if you insist on refreshing the content of the left frame, try adding the following to the <A> tags:

  onClick="refresh()"

tell me if it works...

BTW, checked the site with Netscape 3 and 4. the latter won't change the link color until a refresh is done.

Just to confirm what Christian said.  The link doesn't change color until the page is refreshed/reloaded.  This is most noticable in frames.  However, the same thing occurs when you click on a link to go somewhere and if you press the 'Back' button you will find that the link color has not changed most of the time.  If the link has changed it is because the page was refreshed automatically do to a Meta tag.

Can u please send me an example for such a line, because I got java error while inserting onClick=refresh() into the <a> tag.

Thanks

Oak,
To refresh/reload your page you would use:

onClick="window.location.reload()" within your anchor tag.  For example:

<a href="yourpage.html" onClick="window.location.reload()">Click Me</a>

sorry about the refresh(), of course it's reload()

The link's color won't change the first time as the page in the left frame isn't fully loaded yet.

So here's another try:

remove all onClick="..." from the left frame, but put the following in the BODY tag of all pages that are loaded into the right frame (moving.htm, packing.htm):
  onLoad="top.frames[1].location.reload()"

if this won't work, you might also want to try:

  onLoad="setTimeout('top.frames[1].location.reload()', 1000)"


tell me if it works...

Your page works correctly for me,
using Netscape 2.02 for OS/2 Warp
(which really is the Netscape 2 "front-end"
married to the Netscape 3 "back-end").
