Hi there everyone!
<verylongstoryshorter> I'm designing a social voting system for submitted links. I tried creating a content strip at the top for my voting system and then embedding the submitted link below in an iframe. I quickly realized that many sites do not want to be embedded inside an iframe. curl and fsockopen opens up huge cans of worms when trying to display page content. So my next attempt will be two open two sized and positioned windows. One small strip across the top for my stuff and the rest of the real estate for the submitted url.
To give you an example of what I mean, SearchTempest does such a thing. In direct results mode, if I click:
"Open Results Window"
Then it opens a control window as a long strip along the left side and the content window on the right.
I would like to do this very thing, with the previously stated exception of it being oriented one above the other. Unfortunately, I'm not sufficiently savvy to do it on my own and ST's page source has so much stuff in it, I can't decipher what's going on.
Could someone help me achieve this?
Thanks for your time!
