IE Prevents running scripts

  • # June 5, 2008 at 1:06 pm

    I’ve made a page with drop-down menu’s and when opening the page on IE, it displays the caution:
    "internet explorer has restricted this web page from running scripts". this prevents my drop-down’s from working properly.

    It’s possible to allow blocked content, but i’m afraid some users won’t know to do it. Is there some sort of code that i can insert that will deem my website as "safe" in order to prevent this warning from ie?

    Is this on your own pc? Because IE blocks javascripts and other scripts on a local machine. Try to upload it to a host to see if it works.

    That usually only happens on your local machine. If you’re getting the same message off of a server, try adding this line to the top of your document:
