Request.ServerV ariables("HTTP_ REFERER")

JW
I use Request.ServerV ariables("HTTP_ REFERER") to get the URL of the referrer
page.

However, if the page that has Request.ServerV ariables("HTTP_ REFERER") is in
a popup window then the value is blank!!

Can anone assist as to how to solve this problem.

The requesting page is at http://www.theexperts.co.uk/error.htm

The ASP code is:

<%
TheirURL = Request.ServerV ariables("HTTP_ REFERER")

sVar = TheirURL

aVar = Split(sVar, "/")

sDomain = aVar(2)

If Lcase(Left(sDom ain, 4)) = "www." Then
sDomain = Right(sDomain, Len(sDomain) - 4)
End If

Response.Write sDomain
%>

Thanks

I'd guess it because you are not clicking a link to get to the page.
Javascript is making a new request for you. You'll get a blank referer if
you type the target url into your address bar.

To get around it I'd suggest that you append the requesting url to a
querystring value to the called asp page and extract it from there.

a href="#"
onclick="(windo w.open('http://www.compasscomp uting.co.uk/error.asp?'+loc atio
n.href, 'Error',
'width=400,heig ht=575'))">Plea se click here to report web site errors, thank
you.</a>

In the error.asp page if you can't find a HTTP_REFERER check
Request.QuerySt ring("fromPage" )
