My javascript is not great.

I use this to open a window

function popup(url, dimensions)
{
      newwindow=window.open(url,'name', dimensions);
      if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}
}

with the links

<a href="javascript:popup('delivery&returns.php', 'height=450,width=270');">delivery&returns </a> |

<a href="javascript:popup('contact.php', 'height=300,width=350');">contact</a>


The problem is if I click on one then another the new page is put in the 'old' window wich is the wrong dimensions. any ideas?

Hi roscoeh23,

You have to change the 'name' for each popup, otherwise the same named window will be reused.

function popup(url, dimensions,what)
{
     newwindow=window.open(url,what, dimensions);
     if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}
}

with the links

<a href="javascript:popup('delivery&returns.php', 'height=450,width=270','big');">delivery&returns </a> |

<a href="javascript:popup('contact.php', 'height=300,width=350','small');">contact</a>

<script>
function popup(url, dimensions,name)
{
     newwindow=window.open(url,dimensions,name);
     if (window.focus) {newwindow.focus()}
}
</script>

change the name for different window

<a href="javascript:popup('delivery&returns.php', 'height=450,width=270','test');">delivery&returns </a> |

<a href="javascript:popup('contact.php', 'height=300,width=350','test11');">contact</a>

THis will always work for you :
function popup(url, dimensions,what)
{
    day = new Date();
    id = day.getTime();
  newwindow=window.open(url,id, dimensions);
}

with the links

<a href="javascript:popup('delivery&returns.php', 'height=450,width=270','big');">delivery&returns </a> |

<a href="javascript:popup('contact.php', 'height=300,width=350','small');">contact</a>
