My company's client website seems to make Safari (3.2 OSX) think that it's all in a Frame. If you view the website in Safari, the title is just the website's URL as opposed to what you'll fiund between the <title> tags.

Then if you right click the page, you can view Frame source?

I'm a little confused, is this my mistake of a Safari bug?

There seems to be an pretty ugly solution to make it accessible from .co.uk-domain.

The source code of the page:

<html>
  <head>
    <title>hapsburgabsinthe.co.uk</title>
    <META NAME="description" CONTENT="">
    <META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="">
    <META NAME="revisit-after" content="5 days">
  </head>

  <frameset rows="100%,*" framespacing="0" border="0" frameborder="0">

    <noframes>
      <body bgcolor="" text="">
      <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>  
      </body>
    </noframes>
    <frame name="main" src="http://www.hapsburgabsinthe.com" scrolling="auto">
  </frameset>
</html>

Considering this, there is no wonder the URL is displayed as title :)

The "real" site is here as you can see: http://www.hapsburgabsinthe.com/

The co.uk domain should point to the .com but through DNS or header redirect .

It appears to be in a frameset. You can see it in firebug. The page is in a frame within the frameset. Perhaps this is done by the server/CMS

Thanks guys, seems that either the client or one of my guys inhouse decided the best way for the website to be on both domains was to frame it..

Got confused becuase I'd been doing all the work on .com, and then today forgot the domain and went to the .co.uk domain and found that.

Cheers!

  • it's probably the way they set up web forwarding for the domain - check with the domain name registrar control panel - look for non-framed web forwarding. Tony Crockford over 7 years ago
