I have a site that is enclosed in frames. Someone tried to link to my site by having it load into a new window when the link was clicked. So, I decided to see what I could do to prevent my site from being a popup. Here's what I did:


<script language="Javascript">
// works with ie5.5 on a PC with Windows 95
// but doesn't work with Netscape 4


// works even if opener is undefined


if (top.opener){
top.opener.location.href = "http://www.preservestaffnow.org";
parent.window.close();
}
</script>
