Are you trying to open the 'Play audio (this will open in a popup window)' link, 2legs?

If it's any help, TRig, Firefox's error console gives me:

What did it mean? I always think it's more important to look like you're being helpful smiley - winkeye

'unterminated string literal' - that's an infinitely long bit of twine, and not a metaphorical one, either.

I think it must be tying the window closed, or something. That's why it won't open.

My geek friend (the one who actually works in web design) was scratching his head over that for ages, but in the end we had it done.

And then I came home and found that a previous version of the fix -- a version that doesn't work at all -- was in place. And then I went to bed. Sorry.

I'll see if I can remember the way it was working earlier. Because before we only had a problem with Rad, but now none are working.

If you look at the HTML source of the page, you'll see that there are two popup windows, one of which is commented out with <!-- ... -->. It was the wrong one. That was all.

You can hear an 'unterminated string literal' on Parisian Walkways by Gary Moore. It means a situation where the string vibrates unterminatedly. Literally.

I'm trying to record an unterminated string noise at the moment on my latest tune, damn hard it is to just to get the right amount of unterminatedation on the string... Perhaps I shoudl try an alternative tuning for the guitar first smiley - dohsmiley - winkeye

The popup windows (audioplayer and videoplayer) wouldn't work where there were apostrophes in the titles. We fixed the audioplayer first, because there was an apostrophe in Rad's Imaginary Holiday. The videoplayer was less urgent. No one complained about it.

This implies that no one cares much about the Beginner's Guide to Cricketing Terminology. I fixed the videopl last night.

I'm sure everyone wants to see the Cavendish Cavaliers in action. Especially their star batsman in the silly hat. Don't they?

Nice job fixing it, TRiG! smiley - ok

I needed help with that javascript. And my friend, who works in web design, was confused by it too for a long time.

Fixing the videoplayer afterward was easy, because I just copied the code for the audioplayer.

Well, five weeks on, we no longer have separate audioplayer and videoplayer pages. There's just the one popup player. Neater all around, really.

And all the links are working!
