"Still Can't See Amplets when using MAC w/IE4 "

please check my site..http://www.lindenhillartbooks.com
try to add items and check out....the amplets does not show...this only happens in with the macs. Unfortunately the class files are in the root url folder...would this pose a problem ever if i set the codebase to the root folder...eg. https:\\www.lindenhillartbooks.com\ ?

I took a look at your uShop 2.x site, and the only thing I saw that may cause a problem (on any browser) is on your "place-order.htm" page. That is, on the applet on that page:

1) You should add the CODEBASE setting to that applet.... so that it matches the CODEBASE of all of your other applet:

codebase= "https://www.lindenhillartbooks.com/"

2) Also, the scriptpath parameter of that applet should be changed from:

"https:\www.lindenhillartbooks.com/cgi-bin/ushop_cgiscript.pl"

to:

"https://www.lindenhillartbooks.com/cgi-bin/ushop_cgiscript.pl".

(Use two forward slashes instead of one back slash.... just like regular URLs).

As for overall performance of the applets on IE running on a Macintosh, see the following URL for the latest information:

http://www.uburst.com/uShop/macs.html

(Although the testing performed there was done with uShop 3.x... I believe it also applies to uShop 2.x)

Thank you for replying. I inserted the codebase settings in the place-order.htm. Thanks again for that hint. I still can't get the mac browser IE4.5 to see the amplets. I read the stats but unfortunately our customer(lindenhillartbooks) is using a mac w/AOL 4.0. what can i advice then about this mac problem?....any other suggestions?

Unfortunately, until the Mac version of IE is fixed to properly handle "static" classes and "static" variables across pages... there is not much that can be done for Mac IE users. I would just recommend putting a note somewhere on your website saying that "Macintosh users must use Netscape." It's not the best solution, but that's it for now.
