View Full Version : Netscape e-mail links on my website don't work



07-08-2001, 02:57 PM
I've developed my website in Dreamweaver and my e-mail link doesn't work in Netscape. It works fine in Internet Explorer however. My ISP said my site needs some code which will activate the Netscape e-mail link when it comes across a Netscape browser.

I can't do programming and was wondering if anyone could help?

Thanks a lot.

Unfortunatly this is caused by Dreamweaver not producing standard compliant code, and Netscape 4.x not being standards compliant.
Personally I would recomend getting a good HTML editor (I use VIM), and learning it as programs like dreamweaver make very bloated code which takes a long time to load.

As for your actual problem, I have played with Dreamweaver in the past and I did have an option to test it against NS 4.x, and add compatability settings which weren't too hard to find. Sorry I can't give any details but I don't have it installed.

Netscape should recognise an email link if you add mailto: to the beginning of the email address. For example, mailto:user@provider.co.nz
