Frames Question

By DSlife ·
New to the board so I hope I am in the correct topic area.

My question is if I am creating a website in frames in which the static frame is the companies navigation, and want to create a direct link for other users to access a specific page, how do I do that so that the navigation frame will show up as well.

Hope this is clear and I appreciate in advance any help on this question. Have a great night.

Create your frames page with some sort of dynamic language. Take one parameter in the querystring as a page address, then load up frames with your navigational bar and the specified page, or an error message if the page requested isnt available.

HTML Frames

by JGlennCRP In reply to Frames Question

If I understand correctly, you want to create two (or more) frames, one of which always is dislayed.
The easiest way to tell you is to show you - go to http://johnglenncrp.0catch.com/ . View the file source from the browser menu bar (not by right-clicking - that display's the page in the frame). Note the coding, particularly

<FRAMESET COLS="80%,20%">

<FRAME SRC="index1.html" name="main">
<FRAME SRC="toc.html" name="toc">


The "name" attribute is the key to filling the frame with other files.

Now, place the cursor on the index page's "gold" frame (titled "inside"). Right click and select VIEW. Note that each entry references the MAIN page

<P><A target="main" href="http://johnglenncrp.0catch.com/articles.html">Articles, Book, & Citations</A> </P>

<P><A target="main" href="index1.html#contact">Contacting John Glenn, CRP</A> </P>

I learned HTML by looking at others' code and suggest you do the same; my pages may provide the information you need. My pages are strictly HTML; no Java/JavaScript, VB, etc. Very simple. Hope this helps.
