    I am working for a client who wants a "splash" page or opening page added to their web site, he wants to be able to navigate to most of his site through here. The problem I am having is, his existing site utilizes frames, if I make a link to any particular page how can I get that page to come up inside the one frame with the menu on the side in the other frame.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Each frame has a name. For example if the menu frame is called 'menu' and you want to open a page named frame.htm in that frame you need to link to <a href="frame.htm" target="_menu">

    Thumbs down Frames!!!

    You should advice your client that frames are not the best option - especially for a splash page. Splash pages are useless and excessive anyway, but beware a lot of search engines will have problems indexing you if you have frames - especially on the front page.

    I agree...frames need to be useful very carefully.

    They can look good at times, though...see http://www.TheOrioles.com for an example.

    Actually, check this site out for confusing navigation.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    PRESS RELEASE: NEW SITE AND SYMPTOMS FOR GERI, THE SPICE GIRL WHO WAS TOO SUCCESSFUL

    London, England: A new sickness, called "Gerihalliwelli" has been discovered by doctors at the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, GA. This so-called disease is generally brought into action when one visits Geri's new site, geri-halliwell.com. This Web site offers a revolutionary new way to contact Geri, code-named "E-mail" by Igiv Egoboosts, the site's main designer. The new Web site, being called "is ... not ... repulsive ... and annoying" by the SitePoint Tribune and "just really, really ... not ... boring" by the LA Times. Over 450,000 visitors have visited Geri Halliwell's revolutionary new site (which now offers so-called HTML to view images. Right now HTML does not offer text capabilities, that's why the site doesn't contain any boring text), some commenting "what the hell were you thinking when you ... [ma]de this site??"

    If you have been found to be infected by this so-called disease, please visit http://www.photo.net for simple design that works. Warning: photo.net uses propietary solutions to send data, often called T/CPIP and W/W/W.com:http//.

    Geri Hallwell is a singer who recently retired from the Spice Girls because she was too successful for them. She is now a young singer just starting her new career. Her songs have been deemed "[the opposite of] really really really BAD" by CmdrTaco at the International Movie Database (warning: this site violates Web style by only opening one window at a time. We know better so we open twelve).

    MORE INFORMATION: press@geri-halliwell.com DISPUTES: Geri@localhost

    {I know that was slightly offtopic, I just felt I had to put my comments on GH in a creative way..)

    I think Commish was thinking of http://www.orioles.com/ which actually in fact does use frames. Just a guess.
