Support for non-JS browsers (simple fix) [DONE]

Post by windmage » Wed Jun 08, 2005 6:13 am

I have a quick request for support for browsers with no JS. Most of AniDB is accessible without JS, but there are a few features that don't work, and it would be really easy to fix them. Basically all the problems are of the form:

<a href="#" onclick="javascript:popup(...)">

If the link inside popup() were also included as the href, things would seemlessly fall back to opening the page in the same window, rather than making it totally unavailable like it is now.

The examples of this that come to mind are comments/ratings for particular groups' releases, and the new category system.

I asked for this months ago and it was refused on grounds that I can't remember (although I think they had something to do with opera) and certainly can't be bothered to find the thread for. A <script></script><noscript></noscript> system should be fine, however, but hasn't been implemented.

What's wrong with target="_new", as used by all the other popups on AniDB?

I'd much prefer target="_new", but I expect there's some lame js code to disable the menu and such on the new window..

Don't need JS to disable menu, &nonav=1 does it.

I think he's talking about browser's menu.
