Hi,
I am developing a site using dreamweaver - the site is frame based having banner, navigation and content frames. In addition the pages behind the scenes are asp / vbscript driven.

I want to achieve the following but don't know how:

When a user clicks on a link in the navigation frame I want to display a page in the content frame - I'm ok with this. However, I also want the navigation frame to change what is displayed when the content frame loads. For example, I want the end user to be able to choose from a variety of links on the navigation frame, but when their choice loads in the content frame I THEN WANT THE NAVIGATION PAGE TO DISPLAY LINKS TO WHAT IS IN THE ARTICLE which would be other pages within the web site.

Can anyone help?

Thanks GB

Hi GB,

You can do this with scripting.  Here's links to a javascript tutorial:
