    Unhappy Frames Mayhem,

    I'm completely stumped about the issue I'm having with the website. I cannot get the right side frame to change to anything else but the index html even if I click the links in the left side frame.

    Could someone look at the source of the page and show me what I'm doing wrong? I'm banging my head on the desk in frustration.

    While this attachment is pending approval, why are you using frames? they were deprecated by the W3C and are shunned upon their use these days. There are too many accessibility and usability issues with them to mention and they play havoc with your visitors browsers and search engines!

    Hi,

    As Alex said above no one uses frames these days

    If my memory serves me right you need to give the frames a name and then target the link to that frame.

    e.g.Your index page code should look something like this (with a frameset doctype of course.)

    Code:
    <frameset rows="*" cols="21&#37;,79%">
        <frame src="frame2.html" name="frame2">
        <frame src="frame1.html" name="frame1">
    </frameset>
    <noframes></noframes>
    Then to link form the sideframe into the main big frame you would have links like this:

    Code:
     <a href ="http://www.nwmmarketing.com/Faq.html" target="frame1">Commonly Asked Questions</a>
    Think hard before you go with Frame pages as they are generally accepted as bad practice these days.
