basically i want to have a site with all the links to the differnt pages on the outer area, and have the different pages to load in a middle segment when the link is clicked. the middle segment is the only thing i want to change in the site and let the border stay loaded the entire time. i have the middle thing set up i just need to know how to do all the links.

If I am reading this right, you are using frames.

In your main page, where you define the frames, you need to set a name for your middle frame.  Such as:

<FRAMESET>
    <FRAME NAME="Left" SRC="blank.htm">
    <FRAME NAME="Middle" SRC="main.htm">
    <FRAME NAME="Right" SRC="contents.htm">
</FRAMESET>

Then in the links on your other pages you set a target like so:
<A href="GoToMiddle.html" target="middle">This goes to the middle frame.</A>

Hope this helps.

That is how you do it...

With the tags I just gave you, when you click on a link in the left or right frame the page for that link will show up in the middle frame.

Give it a try.  If it doesn't do what you want it to do, then tell me what it is doing wrong, maybe post some code, and we'll help you work the rest of the way through...

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Oh and Danson make sure you put that code I gave you on the frame with the links ok? Don't put it on the page that defines the frames of the page! And for more code ideas you can go to www.dynamicdrive.com it's a very good site that has a large collection of cool codes to spice up your page.

Here is your friend's page:
<html>
<head>
<title>Glass Bottom Boat</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<frameset cols="155,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" rows="*">
  <frame name="leftFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="sidebar.html">
  <frameset rows="74,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" cols="*">
    <frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="logo.html" >
--This is where they named the frame-->    <frame name="mainFrame" src="news.html">
  </frameset>
</frameset>
<noframes><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">

</body></noframes>
</html>

============
And the sidebar:
(notice that in each of these HREF statements there is a target="mainFrame" which corresponds with the name that was give it in the file above.

</html>

So, they are doing it the way I was talking about.
If you post the code you have for your pages, I will help you work through why yours is not working the way you expect.

danson34,

You are getting correct code from bvinson, but he needs to see YOUR page so he can determine whay you are having a problem.  The code posted by bvinson is widely used and well know to work so it is probably aminor implementation problem, and they will be able to finish it off for you.

Look let's keep this simple. You declare a FRAME or IFRAME as suggested above, giving each frame a name
eg
<frame name=left src=left.html>
<frame name=main src=middle.html>
<frame name=right src=right.html>

Then with your links in the outside frame you would put
<a href=link.html target="main">

In other words, the target is set to the NAME of the frame you want the link to appear in. Simple.

Danson,

Something else that might help is that you are going to have four pages in total for the first viewed page on your site.  You're going to one (probably index.htm) where you set up the framesets.  Then you are going to have a page (for now we'll call it left.htm) where you have the navbar.  And you'll have another (we'll call right.htm).

index.htm will load and it will load the other windows within itself, so it will appear as if there is only one page.

This is a good site that shows how everything inter-relates.  Sometimes I have to see it before it makes sense.  Hopefully it will help you as well.

Ok.  The layout looks good.  What are you wanting to be pulled from the database, and do you have the database already designed?  If so, is it Access or SQL, or something else?

Thanks.

Here you go:

replace your current links table with this one:

  <table width="140" bgcolor="#CEDADA" border="0" cellspacing="2" cellpadding="2" align="center" height="114">
    <tr>
      <td onMouseUp="location.href=" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" news.htm">
      <b><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF">
      <a href="file:///C:/Documents%20and%20Settings/kyle/My%20Documents/downloads/website%20tools/My%20Webs/news.htm">
      News</a></font></b></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td onClick="target='mainframe'"; bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" about.htm">
      <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF">
      </a>
      <a href="about.htm" target="mainframe">About</a></font></strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td onMouseUp="location.href=" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" downloads.htm">
      <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF"><a href="downloads.htm" target="mainframe">Downloads</a></font></strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td onMouseUp="location.href=" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" Art.htm">
      <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF"><a href="examples.htm" target="mainframe">VB examples</a></font></strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td onMouseUp="location.href=" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" truth.htm">
      <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF"><a href="taghelp.htm" target="mainframe">Help/Tag</a></font></strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td onMouseUp=" location.href=" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" Links.htm">
      <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF"><a href="missing.htm" target="mainframe">Common missing</a>
      files</font></strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
            <td onMouseUp=" location.href=" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="16" Links.htm">
          <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF">
         <A HREF="pics.html" target="mainframe">Pics</A></font></strong></td>
  <tr>
      <td onMouseUp="location.href= " bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="menu" onMouseOver="style.cursor = 'hand'" height="1">
      <strong><font face="Lucida Sans Unicode" size="1" color="#0000FF"><a href="links.htm" target="mainframe">Links</a></font></strong></td>
    </tr>
  </table>

I tested it here and it worked fine w/ no formatting differences.

Hmmm....I don't use FrontPage so it would be really hard for you to decribe what its doing...let me take a look at the code as it is now...could you paste it back in here?  I'll see what formatting changes FrontPage did and see what we can do to fix it.

Strange...it doesn't look like it changed the formatting at all....

In FrontPage, can you select a word and make it a hyperlink?  If so, does it give you the option to specify a target for that link?  I used it a long time ago and think it does...So let's try this:

Copy your original code out of this page and paste in back in to FrontPage...then select the words, make them links and specify the target...perhaps that way it will maintain the formatting.  Make sense??

Thanks!!
I'm glad I was able to help.  The major stumbling block was that you were using an IFRAME rather than a frameset. :)

Good luck and best wishes.

Danson...if your code works....I would be amazed....are you serous or is this a joke?   you just made a mountain out of a molehill.  If this is how you code, I would hate to be the person to debug anything you code....sorry, just being sarcastic because that is crazy.

Do you see why Front Page is crap?  It produces crap
