Link_to issues with I.E

I have a problem with I.E 6 & 7

I have a link with :popup => true, and sometimes (but not all the time)
the window will pop up in a new window and open up in the same window.

You can check it out http://www.showsinlasvegas.com/pages/show

It works fine with fire fox, opera and safari.

Any ideas would be awesome.

I forgot to mention, that after you go to
http://www.showsinlasvegas.com/pages/show
you have to choose a show, then click the seating chart link on the
right side.

I’m using:
<%= link_to(‘Seating Chart’, { :controller => ‘pages’, :action =>
‘seating_chart’, :id => @show }, :popup => true) %>

to generate the link.

Hi, could you post the relevant code snippet for people to better assist
you?

Thanks,

It sounds to me like you are re-using the window object. Try opening the
popup with a unique window name, possibly derived from the object id.

For example:
link_to “Open Show”, { :action => “view” }, :popup => [@show.id,
‘height=300,width=600’]

Make sure the window name is _blank

                <%= link_to(foo.name,
                  { :controller => 'foo_controller',
                    :action     => 'foo_details',
                    :id         => foo
                  }, :popup => ['_blank', 'width=720, height=250'])

%>

Sweet. your my new best friend. That worked.

There an alternative that worked for me:

                <%= link_to(foo.name,
                  { :controller => 'foo_controller',
                    :action     => 'foo_details',
                    :id         => foo
                  }, {target=>'_blank'})
