Recently issued Windows Update offered me to update Internet Explorer; now I've got skinny-puppy version 7 with refreshed interface and the gold bar appearing each time when I click on "Image Link" or "URL Link" buttons above the message area, if I want to insert picture or www link in my post.
The reason is in Internet Explorer 7 the window.prompt script method is blocked and the gold Information bar is displayed by default in the Internet Zone. This was employed by Microsoft to help prevent websites from spoofing things such as the logon screens of other websites. This is a new security enhancement for Internet Explorer 7. MiniBB uses the window.prompt script to open the dialog where users may enter their URL data for the outside picture or link.
To enable these options working, follow these steps:
- Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools
button, click Internet Options
, and then click the Security
- Click Internet
, and then click the Custom level
- Scroll down to Allow websites to prompt for information using scripted windows
, select Enable
- Click OK
until you return to Internet Explorer.
