Use the TARGET attribute in your link using either the frame name of your mainframe or "_self".

e.g.

<A HREF="url" TARGET="mainframe">Link Name</A>

or

<A HREF="url" TARGET="_self">Link Name</A>

You mean that you load an external page (which is on another server or another domain) into your own frame? Right? I am sorry but this cannot be done. The only thing that you are able to do is to give your frame the same name as the other page is using.

That way you will be sure that the page is loade din the correct frame. Check out the source code which framename it uses. if it does not use any frame but just opens, then you cannot achieve your goals at all.

If you mean that it goes full frame instead of staying in your frameset, that is becuase the page contains code to break out of the frame.  

Some sites do not want their pages framed by other sites, and it is their right to protect their content.  The solution is to open it in a separte window.  Then when the user cles it they will be back to your page.  You cannot force a page from another domain into your frame if they have frame breaker code on their pages.

WordPress Tutorial 2: Terminology

An important part of learning any new piece of software is understanding the terminology it uses. Thankfully WordPress uses fairly simple names for everything that make it easy to start using the software.

no, its still my page and resides on the same server.
i want to call this other page so one way of doing it is
to use a hyperlink

<A HREF="url" TARGET="mainframe">Link Name</A>

<A HREF="url">Link Name</A>

try,

<input type="button" value="Click Here" onclick="window.location='http://www.google.com'">

if still that doesn't work, then we need to see your source - the frameset page and the mainframe page.

Another alternative is:


<button name="Click Here" type="button"
  value="SELFHTML" onClick="self.location.href='your_page_being_linked_here'">

any explanation for the "C"???

i guess you're not familiar how the grading system works. read this carefully,


How Do I Know What Grade to Give?
Although we use an A-D scale here at Experts Exchange, it works differently than, say, school grades. If one or more Experts' proposals are accepted as answers, they should usually be given an A or B grade, since they have taken the time to provide you with a working solution. If a possible solution is incomplete - ask for clarification or details before accepting the answer and grading it. People should not be given lower grades because of incorrect grammar or because you just accepted their answer or comment to close the question. Keep in mind, your question and any follow-up comments should be focused so that there can be a specific answer. The following is a good guideline to follow when grading:

A: The Expert(s) either provided you with a thorough answer or they provided you with a link to information that thoroughly answered your question. An "A" can also be given to any answer that you found informative or enlightening beyond the direct question that you asked.

B: The Expert(s) provided an acceptable solution, or a link to an acceptable solution, that you were able to use, although you may have needed a bit more information to complete the task.

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question. Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support.

kittlou,

I have posted a complaint about this grade, and your history of abandoned question.  I expect you will hear from a moderator or admin shortly.

Could you please explain why expert third only received a "C" grade for his answer? Please provide feedback if you are not happy with an answer and our experts will try to clarify their comments.

third gave you the guidelines for EE's grading system already, so please give us more information.

Thanks

You logged in today but apparently you don't care about this question anymore. I will change the grade to 'A' now.
