1click,2effects/Frame photo-album

Hi, I'm tryin' to create a simple picture album in frames A,B & C.
A frame= menu, contains thumbnails;
B frame= main pic display window when clicks made in 'A' frame;
C frame= should display picture description.
In short, 1 click on thumbnail, displays picture in 'B' and it's description in 'C'.

I could get A & B, but not C.
Any tips will be awesome! Thanks!

Hiya tenzimin,
It would be nice to see your current code, then at leaqst we know what needs to be done.

On another note: Are you really sure you want to use frames for this? It's an archaic html technology that is replaced by server side technologies for the most part years ago.

Hi Klykken,
Following code is placed in iframeA.

<a href="picture1.jpg" target="iframeB" >
<img border="1" src="pic1thumnail.jpg" width="100" height="67"></a>

When the 'pic1thumbnail'  is clicked, the real picture displays in iframeB. What I need is a special 'tag' or 'code', something that could generate the picture description in 'iframeC' w/ that one same click.

I know following codes wouldnt work..just an idea..

<a href="picture1.jpg" target="iframeB" a href="description.html" target="iframeC'>
<img border="1" src="pic1thumnail.jpg" width="100" height="67"></a>

Af forme, frames looks lil' easier then javas..  :) Thanks!

Just add a little javascript to your link like this:
<a href="picture1.jpg" target="iframeB" onClick="parent.iframeC.location='description.html'">
<img border="1" src="pic1thumnail.jpg" width="100" height="67"></a>

That was helpful..u rock!..hehe..okay..I'll increase the points by 50 more and ask one related question:
I dont wanna make 50 different description pages for my 50 pix, I'd rather make one page and have all description interconnected. Eg: http://www.htmlcodetutorial.com/frames/noframesrecipes.html
Where they use this sign '#' to link the description. But I dont want user to click many times. So user should click a thumbnail, & gets the real picture1 + exact #description1. Can you help me on this? Thanks!

hi tenzomin,
This is actually a great example of why you should'nt use frames :-) This gets overcomplicated. Html pages should be *one* page (in my world anyways). But enough of my rant, let's see if we can hack our way through this soyou can make your frames to work :-)

First of all you need to insert an anchor inside your description.html right before each description starts, like this:
<a name="desc1"></a>
Description 1 etc etc
<a name="desc2"></a>
Description 2 etc etc
<a name="desc3"></a>
Description 3 etc etc

Now you need to change your thumbnail links to this, so that each link will link to the correct anchor in your (now) looong description page:

<a href="picture1.jpg" target="iframeB" onClick="parent.iframeC.location='description#desc1.html'">
<img border="1" src="pic1thumnail.jpg" width="100" height="67"></a>

<a href="picture2.jpg" target="iframeB" onClick="parent.iframeC.location='description#desc2.html'">
<img border="1" src="pic2thumnail.jpg" width="100" height="67"></a>

<a href="picture3.jpg" target="iframeB" onClick="parent.iframeC.location='description#desc3.html'">
<img border="1" src="pic3thumnail.jpg" width="100" height="67"></a>

etc

You get the point :-)
