Hello. I am having an issue with my website populating an XML table. The XML table is located in the root folder and is called song_catalog.xml

The webpage that has the XML table on it has the following code. It used to populate just fine then all of a sudden it stopped. I tried to fix it and could not. I have no idea what is going on. Any help is appreciated.

The following is the html code from the webpage, then the XML data (or rather a portion of the data since it is a huge file, well 800kb huge) .

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" ""><html xmlns=""><!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/sitetemplate.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" -->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

<style type="text/css">
.catalog_genre_head {background-color:darkGray;font-size:24pt;color:white;font-family:Impact;}

.catalog_row0 {background-color:lightGray;}
.catalog_row1 {background-color:white;}
.catalog_row_end {background-color:darkGray;}

QUOTE(Mfortney @ Sep 28 2016, 05:39 PM) *

Hello. I am having an issue with my website populating an XML table.

Hello. Is the contents of the XML table written on the web page after making a selection in the dropdown menu? The following looks strange:

<div onClick="getSong(document.myform.genres.value)"> <select name="genres">

Clicking a DIV element around a SELECT menu (with no other content than the SELECT) is not the usual way to retrieve the value of a SELECT menu dropdown. Instead try using a button:

<input type="button" value="Search" onclick="getSong(document.myform.genres.value);">

or perhaps an onchange event in the SELECT menu itself:

<select onchange="getSong(this.value);">

(but the latter can be annoying to users).

The retrieval of the XML data seems to be done with the javascript in "js/songscript.js", which we may need to see as well if the above doesn't help.

There are some other issues with the HTML, such as the Spry menu code being inserted outside the BODY section, but they may not be related to the XML problem.
