Hi all,

I have posted this question in http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Q_21090635.html but so far no one has been able to help me. Basically, I have two frames, Frame A and Frame B. I have a page in Frame B with  a link to http://products.danahermotion.com/?danaher=ServoMotors2. this URL should also appear in frame B. Having <href="http://products.danahermotion.com/?danaher=ServoMotors2"> or <href="http://products.danahermotion.com/?danaher=ServoMotors2" target=_self> should do it but a dialog box  about cookies come up. If I do <href="http://products.danahermotion.com/?danaher=ServoMotors2" target=_blank>, it works just fine.

Why is this happening and are there any workarounds?

Thanks,
T

The path=/ won't allow the frame to read the cookie...

<html>
<script type="text/javascript">
      var tmpcookie = new Date();
    chkcookie = (tmpcookie.getTime() + '');
    document.cookie = "chkcookie=" + chkcookie + "; path=/";
    if (document.cookie.indexOf(chkcookie,0) < 0) {
            alert ("This website requires cookies to be enabled. Please enable your browser to accept cookies and try again.")
            history.go(-1)
    } else {
            document.location.replace('defaultpage.asp?danaher=ServoMotors2')
      }

</script>
<body onload=document.location.href='defaultpage.asp?danaher=ServoMotors2'>
</body>
</html>
