hi there,

I have a question regarding a Frameset and link between the frames - I wonder if it is something that can be solved with some CSS or is the design flawed because of the nature of a Frameset......

I'm a Designer but a relative novice to coding/XHTML/CSS

I designed this page as I have no knowledge of Javascript/Ajax but have encountered a flaw and wondered if anyone could offer some help (very much appreciated).....

Ok here's the link: http://kierankelly.net/dansitebuild/indexframeset00.html the problem arises when for example you click on "Graphics" and then view "02" in the menu, this will activate a page in the "main frame" then if I change the category to "identity" it changes the top frame but the "main frame" which I want to change back a blank page remains the same "02" page - this basically mean the structure of the site is knackered? or is the trick to assign a Div tag to link to launch x2 at the same time? and thus refresh both frames?

I know this is not a strict CSS question - but I've had some good help on here beforre so I thought I'd give it a shot,

thanks for your time

kie

Oh, it isn't so happy in FF either, with the menu jumping around.

That really means you goota go to the maestro, stu nicolls. All the way to Milton Keynes (unless he has moved Smile )

His main site is at cssplay.co.uk and he has some bootiful gallery pages.

would you be upset if I told you to lose the frames? They're quite old and not used much (except by amateurs). Look into includes.

What's this downer thing

What's this downer thing with js? Very few folk disable it. Java disabled, oh yes, but not javascript. I mean, I'm fully loaded with rotweiler security, but even I have it enabled.

As wolfie isn't online right

As wolfie isn't online right now...

If you have server side includes on your server, like php or asp, you can include one file or bit of code inside another file. That way, you write the code once and include into many pages. Juts search for something like this:

<?php include ('header.inc.php');?>

But you DO need to change the filenames of your html files to php extensions (or asp for asp)

We should organise a CSSCr

We should organise a CSSCr get-together some time. We did it all the time on the MagicTricks forum (since shut down) and now the MagicBunny forums, nice way to meet the real people Wink
