Question I have... Help with Yahoo iPage web hosting ordering by credit card please? Thanks for any answer or 2. Another quick question... Greetings.

Im moving my iPage website from Bravenet to Yahoo Geocities, my last iPage site I built in frames with a sideframe for a menu bar and one mainframe for a text frame. I put buttons in the menu bar the desired effect was for the buttons/links in the menubar to open up in the other frame without collapsing the frameset. The links/buttons worked but when opening the page it would collapse my frameset..

So my question is how do I target so that the links will open in the mainframe? (This is how I did it previously) maybe there is a mistake in it..


<head><base target="main">.


</head><body bgcolor="black">.


<img src="">.



<a href=""><img src="" border="0" width="125" height="20" alt="Articles Section!"></a>.

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Ok so target each individual link when I make my buttons?.

I was told you could skip that if you just added that tag into the heading of the document..

Im gonna experiment with it now..

Look at the page in question then maybe you can understand what I'm talking about..


I tried it just like you said and it didnt work ill cut and paste the code..

</head><base target="main">.

<body><body bgcolor="black">.


<a href="" target="main">guestbook</a>.

<a href="" target="Beit.html">Second Attempt</a>.


The name of the mainframe is just "Main" just like I tried in the first link...

Comment #5

On your frameset, you've got.




There. put them both inside a full set of "quotes"..

In sideframe.html, you've got far too many <body> tags. do this instead:..

Thanks for correcting the link..

No major problems with your [.

Tag needs to be moved, and you also need to cater for frameless browsers..

A couple of [.


] to fix on one of the frames:.


<base >.

Tag is in the wrong place, and you have a duplicate.



A [.

Lot of work.

] is needed to fix up the code in the other frame. There are a lot of errors..

You have duplicate.




Alt="some text".

To every.

<img >.

Tag. On unimportant images, like spacer elements, and bullet-point images, a minimum of.


Is fine. Search engines do index the.





Tag is.

Browser specific.


Closing tags never have attributes, so stuff like.

</font size></font color></font face>.

Should only be.



Check for missing tags, or tags nested in the wrong order, or closed in the wrong order compared to the opening. Nested tags are supposed to be closed in the.


Order to which they were opened..

Code like:.


Is wrongly spaced, and has quotes missing. it should be:.

...on94/small-mosaic.jpg" width=.







Correct the.

Greetings Giz.

Yeah that wasnt the best of news after looking at all the errors in that HTML validator, ive never used one I'm really quite new to HTML to begin with, I guess the simplest thing to start with would be the Font Tags I wasnt aware that </font> would close out all tags without listing the attribute, I guess thats where i'll start that would be the easiest, the frames section is what is the most baffling I need to study frames more, theres no time limit to building my iPage site I'm doing it so I can learn plus I'm soon to be in school for web design at the local community college that shoule help some..

I figured I would go through all the mistakes in the validator and read each little tutorial..

I'll start tonight with the Font Tags and the Image Tags that would seem to be the easiest route, then figure out frames..

You said Marquee font is browser specific? what browsers is it compatible with?.

I'll save the Javascript for last..

Well what do you think as far as the design and layout goes not including the coding errors, "remember I'm a newbie".

Peace out for now, from the other side of the pond..
