Got a question, hope someone can answer... What is the best windows iPage web hosting company ? Hoping for any answer or 2. Second question.. I am having trouble linking to another sites frameset with out breaking it. Does anybody know the code to linking to a frameset of a framed site. Here is the iPage site I am talking about.

:.

Http://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/SKULLS.HTM.

Now I know I could just link to that, but I want to link directly to each link on the framed sites navbar while keeping the frameset intact. The problem is the address stays the same and I am having trouble figuring out the source(html) code..

Here is the iPage site that I am trying to link from:.

Http://pub84.ezboard.com/balumniouskullscom.

About halfway down on the navbar on the lef you will see what I am talking about. The links to the framed "Active Site" have been left blank because if I just link to the specific page in the iPage site it will not bring all the frames just the specific one..

Any ideas on the code for my situation? Thanks in advance and sorry for the long windedness..

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

As far as I know, you would need to create your own frameset document and plugin the URLs of the iPage site you are trying to link to. But unless you have their permission or it's your own website, that would be very uncool..

Those skulls look familiar, maybe an aunt or uncle of mine......

Yeah. I have permission. Its my buddies site. How would I go about doing that as far as creating my own frameset?..

Comment #3

Here is the code of your buddies frameset document:.

You would need to make one similar to it but use the full URLs to the pages instead of the "short" URLs (src="Footer.htm"). Add or modify exisiting frames to suit your own purpose..

Right. that is about as far as I got. But how would I apply that to one link coming from outside the site? I don't see how making my own frameset from an ezboard will help. Sorry to sound ignorant and unwilling. I don't want to come off sounding like it. I am just trying to understand.



Here is the code as I have it set up now:.

<a href=h**p://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/Welcome.htm><font size=-2 face=verdana>Welcome</font></a>.

This of course just brings up the welcome page and not the three other frames that go along with it..

If I typed this:.

<a href=h**p://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/Welcome.htm><a href=h**p://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/Header.htm><a href=h**p://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/Side.htm><a href=h**p://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/Footer.htm<font size=-2 face=verdana>Welcome</font></a>.

Is that what you mean by long hand?..

Right, I've had a look at both sites and I think I know what you're getting at. The menu on the left of the Skullz of Ohio iPage website is also included as part of your ezboard. When someone clicks on one of these links on the ezboard you want it to open the Skulls of Ohio iPage site with the relevant pages in the frames..

I think the only way you can do this is to create several framesets, one for each link. For instance, for the Events link you want the iPage site to open with the events page in the main frame, so you would create a frameset and specify that the events.htm file opens in that frame..

What Kevin meant was instead of using.

Events.htm.

In the code you would use:.

Http://cscwww.cats.ohiou.edu/~skulls/events.htm.

This method is going to be very messy though and I'm not sure that it would work very well..

Can you not just have the one link on the ezboard that takes the person to the Skulls of Ohio iPage site main page? From there they can navigate to the different areas using the menu on the site. It would save you an awful lot of work and would make things so much less complicated...

Comment #6

Yeah. Of course I could. I just thought I would match what I was doing with the Alumni iPage site for reasons of continuity..

I do appreciate all your guys help. Maybe I can convince my buddy not get rid of frames...
