I am working with Dreamweaver 8.

My temp website is at http://s198640998.onlinehome.us/bb/ 

When I click on Search Houses I want to open  a FRAME in the yellow area on the right that automatically links ot another site.

At the moment Search Houses linkd to a new html pages with 3 frames.  It does not Automatically link to the other site.   If this is the way to do this...how to I clear all the frames off the screen when the user clicks on Home?

Glenn,

I have done a realty website recently that does pretty much the same thing.  You're going to need to do the site in a a frameset.  You'll put your menu on one page that displays on the left (for example called menuframe).  Then for each link, you'll need to link to the correct page and designate the "target" for the link as mainFrame (or whatever you called the yellow area when you built your frameset.  This will cause the external link (I assume for MLS services) to show in the yellow area.  Hope this helps.

Here's an example I just threw together using a small picture with a hotspot (you could use a flash button, etc). It's linked to an imaginary service at http://url.yourmls.com.  BUT it's displaying in the mainframe seciton of the frameset

<area shape="rect" coords="2,3,165,88" href="http://url.yourmls.com" target="_mainFrame" />

Hope it helps.

Thanks, but it all seemed overly complex.
I did more digging and learned about iframes (new to me).

I can create a single frame on a single html page, in the exact spot I want.
