A few customers have recently contact me about their internet window opening without the menu bar or scrollbars.  The reason is that if you use Typepad's way of attaching a link to a picture, it adds extra code that you need to replace.

Meaning, for example, you add an image of a tutorial or product you want to sell on your blog.  Then you double-click the image in the post or page and the Image Properties Window appears.   Here is where you can enter a URL or Link.  And if you click to Open In a New Window, then undesirable code is added.  

Instead of the traditional

target=_blank or target="blank"

this is added

onclick="window.open(this.href,'_blank','scrollbars=no,resizable=yes,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0'); return false"

So, you need to go to Edit HTML, find the name of the image you just inserted, and replace the ONCLICK code (you see above) with the TARGET code (above) and save.  Then it will all work fine and "normal".  Meaning, when the image is clicked, it will open a new internet window with the toolbars and scrollbars and look more normal to you.

Have fun blogging,
