If you are experiencing internal link problems from a single Industrial Buildings or Industrial Site page while using any Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, first go to the Industrial Buildings or Industrial Sites, click on the link to the desired site or building.  Once you have done that for any site or building, all drop-down links to individual sites or buildings should work.  This is a security issue with IE when dealing with embedded websites that have internal security settings.

If you are still experiencing internal link problems from the Industrial Buildings and Industrial Sites pages while using any Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, you may need to add http://www.edpa.org and http://headlandalabama.org as a trusted site. There are instructions below on how to do this. This problem does not happen if you are using FireFox, Google Chrome or any other Mozilla based browser. It should work fine in Safari on Apple computers. This seems to be a problem with many embedded links with Internet Explorer due to a permissions issue. We have been working with the personnel at EDPA.org but so far have not found a work-around. However, we have been able to get the links to work properly by adding the two sites as trusted sites in Internet Explorer.

ie_trusted_site_0 Click the Tools link at the top of the page. If you do not see the Menu bar, then right-click on a blank area on the top bar and click the Menu Bar so it will be displayed. On the Tools drop-down, click on Internet Options.
ie_trusted_site_0 On the Internet Options window, click on the Security tab.

On the Security tab, click on Trusted sites and then click on the Sites button.

 

ie_trusted_site_0 First, if the 'Require server verification' is checked, uncheck it. On the Trusted sites window, type http://www.edpa.org in the 'Add this website to the zone:'. Then click the Add button

ie_trusted_site_0 Type http://headlandalabama.org in the 'Add this website to the zone:' and click the Add button.

The http://headlandalabama.org is now shown in the list of Websites in your Trusted zone. Click the Close button to close the Trusted site window and then click the OK button to close the Internet Options window.

Hover over the Economic Development link on the HeadlandAlabama.org website and then click on the Industrial Building link. Click on one of the available building links that is displayed.

You should be able to view that building data page. If you cannot view it, then close Internet Explorer, open Internet Explorer again, navigate to the HeadlandAlabama.org website and try again. If it still does not work, then try another browser, preferably FireFox or Google Chrome.
