I have a web site with a number of families - this acts as a "wrapper" for a number of Narrative reports generated by Genopro.

Everything has been fine until I generated a report using Genopro 2016.   The tree I have now does not allow the index frames to close when an entry is selected or when the "Close this Index" button is pressed.

Oddly if I browse the data on my local PC (i.e. using file:// protocol rather than http://) things work fine.

The effect can be seen at the Website - extra.bccy.org.uk the first six Family Histories from the LH Sidebar are the old ones which work as expected - it is the last one (Crabtree, Livesey, Starkie etc) that misbehaves.   Follow the "Explore the family trees..." link from the main Crabtree page to see the problem.

I've tried using Firefox and Chrome in Windows plus a couple of Linux browsers.

Narrative Report 2014.08.14 is the last one that worked for me - is there a copy somewhere that I could try with Genopro 2016 ?

Hi BobC,
Yes the inter-frame communication in the Narrative Report does seem to go a bit awry when its frameset is embedded in another as is the case with your website.

I have had to employ several techniques to try and get all browsers to talk between frames. I will see if I can tweak it again to get it working in your situation but in the meantime I have attached a copy of the skin you wanted.

So it's the way my Website is set up that is fooling things.   That explains why it works o.k on local browsing , i.e. when I just view the files off my local disk as then they aren't wrapped in the websites frames.

Thanks for the earlier version - I'll give it a whirl and see how it goes.

In the light of what you have said I have decided to modify my Website so that the Genopro generated pages open in a new window/tab  - I've changed the coding for the Crabtree ones and will do the others as I make changes to the data and regenerate the Genopro pages.

It actually makes sense as it allows more "screen estate" for the Genopro stuff, particularly the genogram pages.   At the moment it's not too bad for me with a 16:10 aspect ratio screen but when I try to view it on a tablet or phone it is too cramped anyway.

Unless there is some other compelling reason it doesn't seem sensible to change the report generator code to accommodate the problem I was having.

Many thanks    BobC
