    Hi,

    I'm am linking e-commerce headlines to their stories on another website and would like when someone clicks the link for it to open a new browser window and have a small frame at the top where my company logo is and a link saying something to the effect of, "Click here to return to MerchantSeek" then the rest of the page continues on with the news story.

    An example would be like how Hotmail has their's setup, where when you click a link a brower window opens and at the top Hotmail has their little frame that says your visiting a site outside of Hotmail, click here to return.

    I think about.com has something like this, also.

    Can anyone help me to accomplish what I'm after?

    I'm doing this so I can attempt to not lose any visitors.

    Thanks,

    On the links page:

    <a href="path\to\frameset.html?url=http://www.domain.com/page.html" target="_new">link</a>

    The 'frameset.html" page will contain:
    > a frameset consisting out of two frames: the top and bottom
    > a script which will put the value of the 'url' variable into the location of the second frame

    You could use PHP, ASP or CF for this.

    Tell use which language(s) you can use and we'll be able to provide you with an example script or a more detailed explanation if necessary.

    I have a current PHP script.

    it has 2 support:

    1) with frame
    2) without frame

    both logs all user requests to a site. ( but thats it..not cookie settings etc. for advanced statistical purposes. just hit counts )

    if there's a frame, there are 3 buttons..
    return home ( my site )
    report dead link ( report any dead links )
    exit this frame ( refresh site without this link ).

    a seperate script works with this, which has an auto submitting feature for reporting dead links. ( i call it the Multi-Purpose Form [MPF] )

    okie.
    if you want an example, go to:
    http://nortiq.com
    click on any of the nortiq associates on the left navigational menu and you'll experience it.

    1 of them has a frame, and the other without a frame.

    if you're interested, contact me.
    its done in php and programmed by me.
