Default GAL doesn't like iframes

Gal doesn't like iframes, but who can blame her? I don't either.

However, I'm forced to use them with my Amazon affiliate program and I thought, "Wouldn't it be cool to have these in GAL popups?"

Well it is a cool idea, but when you mouseover any part of the ifram, it closes the popout as if you were mousing out of it all together. Therefore a user can not click on the Amazon links anywhere because the GAL popup closes.

I'm sure you can tell what the Amazon part is. Is there anyway to prevent GAL from closing on the mouseover?

Thanks,

so your GAL popup is an iframe? If so - i realllllllly like the idea.

If I got you right, the iframe is firing the GAL box's onmouseout which is causing it to close? I think the Iframe needs to have a onmouseover and onmouseout then that keeps the gal box visible.

Am I on the right track?

you can put HTML or bbcode - so yes

FF seems to fire off the mouseoff event when the iframe gets the focus (even though the iframe is IN the container). Im playing around with some ideas as I think this is very cool.
