I keep getting this message when trying to access certain pop-ups on certian
sites. Sometimes it just just an address in the address bar at the bottom of
the screen but it does not access the page and sometimes it has a yellow
error symbol. Most of the time, it does not work and is annoying! I have
checked that scripting is allowed in internet options and it is. Plain and
simple answers in English please as I do not understand javascript at all.
Thanks in advance.

javascript:void(0) is a dummy function. It's part of the way java
programming works.

[[The javascript:void(0); calls a function that does nothing (actually it
evaluates 0).]]

[[When a link is clicked it takes the user to the page specified in the URL
of the HREF attribute. To prevent this from happening, use
javascript:void(0) as the value of HREF.]]

Java is not JavaScript. They are completely different languages but your
answer is correct.

I knew I was gonna get some kind of comment about my lack of knowledge on
this. ;-) I actually just forgot to type script on the end of java.

Obviously, I am no programmer. Research Librarian might be a better term.

I always wondered why I saw javascript:void(0), but never bothered to see
what it was until this thread.

I click on the item on the screen which is supposed to initiate a further
popup but nothing happens. I still do not understand any of these responses!
I'm not trying to use the instruction - it is an error that I am encoutering.
Is this an error with the particular website?

Oh ok I thought it was unwanted windows that just pops up, those could be
bad and lead to spyware infestation.

I'm not trying to use the function. It is an error that I am encountering!
When I click on the options to open certain pages, their address at the
bottom of the screen shows this error. What can I do about this?

I'm using this forum to test if I get this error here. I'm getting this error on an article. There have been additional comments since I first tried to comment so the problem must be with my settings.
