    Changes to Call Sign Pages

    QRZ is announcing today that the availability of certain features pertaining to the display of user biography pages will be undergoing changes that promote greater security and better uniformity between listings. These changes will affect the way in which customized user biography pages are shown. Most users will not be affected by these changes, which affect only those who have elected to use features provided by the Expert Options and CSS Styles menu and in particular, those who have styled the upper part of the call sign page.

    What is Changing?

    Call sign pages on QRZ are shown using a Tabbed interface that overlays a few different sub-pages of data for each call sign. These tabs include Biography, Detail, Logbook, and possibly Web Contacts. The changes announced today affect only the data shown in the Biography tab, and only if you have made use of certain Expert options.

    Call sign pages are typically spread across two distinct parts of the page. There is an upper area, called the Callsign Data Block followed by a tabbed section which holds the Biography, Detail, Logbook and other features. With this new security update, the information shown above or outside the tabbed section will be restricted to QRZ Use Only. This means that users will no longer be able to style, apply colors, background images, or other enhancements to the part of the page that lies outside of the tabbed area. Inside the Biography tab, users will be able to stylize their pages as before, including the use of Expert options and CSS.

    These new page layout rules affect ALL users, regardless of their subscription status, including LIFE Members as well as QRZ Staff.

    What You Can Expect

    You probably won't be affected by these changes. Most users have traditionally avoided the Expert options because, well, they are for experts. Still, there are sufficient numbers of expert users to make this announcement necessary.

    If you are an expert user and you have styled the Callsign Data Block, then you will notice that your styling has reverted back to the default, non-styled look. The rest of your biography should still look the same, just as it was before the changes.

    If you are a Custom Page Design customer you may also notice that the upper part of the page has lost its custom styling. Our page designer is standing by to help if some items may need to be moved down the page.

    Technical Notes for Expert Users

    For those Expert users reading this who are conversant in HTML programming, please note that the entire Biography tab will be enclosed within an IFRAME element which will constrain all user CSS styling options to affect only items contained within it.

    If you have incorporated your own IFRAMES within your QRZ bio, we cannot guarantee the results. These IFRAME within IFRAMES will probably work, but we won't guarantee them. You are responsible for making sub-IFRAMES work, if that's what you need.

    You may also note that all forms of JavaScript are prohibited, including embedded action keywords within HTML. Just don't try it because you will end up frustrated. JavaScript cannot be supported for user pages.
