Hello,

We have a frameset like this

L    Top Frame
E
F
T

F    Bottom Frame
R
A
M
E

Right now, all the links we put into the left open ONLY in the top frame.  How can we designate the links to open in EITHER the Top or Bottom Frames?  Also, currently our Frameset code is this:
<html>

<head>

</head>

<frameset cols="229,*">
  <frame name="left" scrolling="auto" noresize target="rtop" src="lef.htm">
  <frameset rows="56%,*">
    <frame name="rtop" target="rbottom" src="to.htm">
    <frame name="rbottom" src="botto.htm" target="_self">
  </frameset>
  <noframes>
  <body>

  <p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.</p>

  </body>
  </noframes>
</frameset>

</html>

What should we do?  Help!

Thanks,

Yunkaa

Change this:
<frame name="left" scrolling="auto" noresize target="rtop" src="lef.htm">

to this:

<frame name="left" scrolling="auto" noresize src="lef.htm">


When you use the target="rtop", it means that all links will open in that frame...

Then the links in the left frame now become:

<p><a href="to.htm" target="rtop">Link One</a></p>
<p><a href="botto.htm" target="rbottom">Link Two</a></p>

Just so you follow,
Adding the "target" attribute directly to the links in the left frame, as opposed to inside the framset - mean you can control what link opens where...

try appending target parameter to the links

eg:

<A href="url1" Target = "rtop">TEST1</A>
<A href="url2" Target = "rbottom">TEST2</A>

I'm glad I could help - just so you know for the future - it's not a good idea to accept duplicate responses...

Thanks,
