I have a mainpage with two frames - top and main. the top frame has a main menu and the items point to pages to open in the mainframe. These pages are split into two frames left and mainFrame. The left has submenus and the content is displayed in the main. Even though I rename the mainframe on the other pages the submenu items still seem to look for the mainFrame and thus I get page errors. Though independantly the menus work fine. Any Ideas?

If they seem to look for the frame, they probably are looking for it.  You shouldn't have frames with the same names. Make sure everything has it's own name and every link is pointing to the appropiate frame.

Also, if I am getting you structure correctly, you have a top frame that always stays there, and a "main" frame that eventually gets divided into two. There could be some code breaking your inner frames, but I don't think this is your case. Start by checking the names and the links, let us know how it go.

Best regards,

Hey I got it. It was to do with name framing and the target . Basically had to set the target to parent frame.childframe and hey presto. Thanks for you time.

I fear that my grading of a 'c' may have been unseemly. I did'nt wish to offend and would like this upgraded to a 'B' if poss as, although I kind of sorted it out myself, I was pointed in the right direction and above all given hope that there's someone out there in this big old world to ask. The 500 points ( if I understand the award system correctly ) still stands as it really was an urgent issue..........hey I'm new to all this....I'll get there.
