First of all Need some advice picking the right iPage web host and setting my website? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Another question on my mind: Ok, relatively new to the wonder that is inline framing, and have a question:.

Is it possible to have a link open an iFrame within.

A single page.

Without completely reloading said page?.

At this point all I can think of is have two copies of the main page, one without iFrame tags and one with, and links from one to the other..

Did that make any sense at all? Hope so, sorry if it didn't... and thanks in advance...

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

All you wanna do is stick the IFRAME tags in one big table..

Use the following code.

<Table width="100%" height="100%" valign="middle"><tr><td>.






This will make the frame center both horizontally and vertically..

I am sorry that I am not quite understanding your question, but I guess your question is similar to djdevil, right?.

Well... no, really. But I.


Thank you for taking the time to try to help, the effort was appreciated!.

The "link" you clicked goes nowhere - true, and yes it does open in a new window, I know. This is a test/in-progress page, I just was putting a space filler for the time being. The target name for my iFrame is moot at this point, once I get the design the way I like it content will follow..

You don't really need </iframe> to enclose the iframe code, so that you can delete the following (...) because they won't have any effect..

That's all fine and dandy as long as you're an IE user, but the .x% of the viewing public who.


Would probably appreciate the alternative link, considering it links to (ultimately) the bulk of my site..

And just an aside, an open tag can wreak havoc on funky browsers, so I'm pretty sure it should be closed anyway, alternative content or no..

My question was/is: is it possible to have a link call an iFrame into a page without said iFrame showing until the link is clicked? If not it's not a big deal, I just want to know if it's possible....

Thanks again for at least trying to help!..

After reading over your question several times, I have come to the conclusion that you want an IFRAME (or at least it's contents sinse you can't see the framing on your page) to 'appear' when a link has been clicked on..

I'm confident this is possible in JS or an even less simple way. I would suggest to explore the document.write tag if you have the time. I'm no JS expert but email me on.

And i'll have a look at coding something up quickly for you..

Thinking about it a simple way to do it would be to have a Div with a white table in it in order to cover up this IFRAM initially, when the link was clicked, you could easily set the visibility of the DIV to false, thus making the IFRAME appear..

I hope this is of use..

Best Regards..

Hi SaraJ.

What your'e asking is possible using javascript as flackers says, not being very good at JS I wouldn't know how to code it though..

But I've just done a search on Google for 'using iframes'.

And came up with this site.


It explains how to open and close an iframe on the same page using the.

Document Object Module.

Thought this may be of interest to you..

Thank you both for your help! Sorry I wasn't better at explaining myself..

I was pretty sure JS could do it, but unless I change my mind/design later, it's too 'involved' and not really worth the effort right now. At least I know that someone else says it.


Work too! The DIV coverup I already tried, but because of how I wanted things layered it didn't work... I still had a box taking up space. The DOM solution looks interesting, but I'll have to wait to read it tonight when I have more time..

Thanks again...
