- Form Not Posting in Frame in IE7

I have a new problem I've never had before since upgrading to IE7. My
form doesn't seem to send any data. Firefox and Safari work fine, and
even IE worked before version 7, but now that I've upgraded to 7, I'm
Is anyone here aware of IE7's inability to transmit form data when
posted inside a frame? Is there an advanced setting I can change?
PS -- Yes, I know frames are outdated. But since this is a page for me
& my employees only, and the only alternative is to spend hours upon
hours learning how to plug in to the USPS's API and then programming
the interface, I think I'll stick with the 5-minute frame solution.
Re: Form Not Posting in Frame in IE7
Unfortunately I can't because it's an admin area of the website.
However, it doesn't seem to be a coding problem. The following code
would produce the error:
<form method='post' action='page2.asp'>
<input type='text' name='variable1' value='abcdefg'>
<input type='text' name='variable2' value='abcdefg'>
Page2.asp code would be:
<% Response.Write Request.Form %>
You don't have to know asp... The code on the second page would simply
spill out the entire contents of the form. Or at least, it should. And
it does, as long as the form is in its own window. If it's in a frame,
however, the form contents are empty.
This is not an asp issue, since Firefox and Safari both work fine, as
well as IE6 and below. It has to be something about how IE7 sends form
Thanks for your help.
