Click the javascript:void(0) link and do not expect loading

Post by fastviper » Wed Sep 28, 2011 10:35 am

I'm having a problem with a link:
<a onclick="MagicThumb.expand('product_details_zoom_image');" href="javascript:void(0)" class="link_style_1">See large view</a>

It focuses a layer with product image preview. Yes, focuses existing, hidden layer (effectively: jQuery("...").show('slow')).

iMacros expects page load after TAG TYPE=A and it does not ever happen. Adding "SET !ERRORIGNORE YES" only makes it hang after timeout.

Is there a way to click any link, not expecting any GET/POST action? Changing the link to href="#" of course fixes the problem. But I don't own this page...

Hi fastviper,

What exactly happens after iMacros attempts to click this link? Can you provide the URL for the page so we can attempt to reproduce it?
