Frames on a website

By Phyl ·
I am currently using dreamweaver 2004 to make a website. How do i make it so both the left frame and the mainbody page changes at the same time when you click on certain links.
I dont mind whether you have the answer in html or dreamweaver. As long as it does the job im happy.
Thanks in advance!

I would recommend just using cells in a template form to create individual pages.

The other way you can try is to use rollovers in the left frame to change the content.

All you need do is set the link code to activate instructions for loading two frames. below is the instructions I have for loading info into two frames from a web page I designed some time back. The best way to provide this isntruction is to have the link opne, but not display another page which immediately opens the two you want loaded.

In this example I have the 'default' page that opens the 'main' page which then opens the two pages wanted. You would need to amend the code of the default page as it is also setting up the two sub frames that are then loaded by 'main'

Default page code


<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>file:///G:/CSC/CIT Students/ClarifyWeb/ClarifyStart.html</title>
<base target="_parent">

<frameset framespacing="0" border="false" frameborder="0" rows="6%,93%">
<frame SRC="http://intact/csc/csc/main/csc_menu.htm" NAME="_top" SCROLLING="no"
FRAMEBORDER="0" target="_main" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
<frame SRC="Default.htm" NAME="_main" FRAMEBORDER="0" scrolling="auto" marginwidth="0"

Main page code

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<FRAMESET COLS="20%,80%">
<FRAME SRC="ClarifyContents.html" NAME="_content" FRAMEBORDER=0>
<FRAME SRC="ClarifySplash.html" NAME="_reader" FRAMEBORDER=0>
