Yahoo iPage web hosted Site Not Updating?

Click Here To View All Answers...

First question I have is Yahoo iPage web hosted Site Not Updating? Hoping for any answer. Second question of mine... Shalom (Hi) I'm new to this forum and this is my first post, ive started building my fist iPage website with and want to add a frame to my main page to add buttons and links into all I really need to know is the code I guess I seem to pick up all the HTML pretty fast..

This is the site:.

I think the color scheme overall is well, I would like to add a sideframe to put in for navigation plus to make it look a little more like a professionally made website.I would like a side frame with a distinguisable border I probably wouldnt need scrolling because it's only about a page or page and a halfs worth of text..

All I really need is the code I figured I can just add the code in or make another page and cut and paste all my text in..

Ant Help would be greatly appreciated..

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

Comment #1

Thats the code ripped from my site, changed to suit your needs. Now all you need to do is customize it...

Comment #2

Oops, forgot to say how to target..

In your <a href="file">text</a> you have to insert.

Target="framename" in the href so the edited code would be.

<a href="file" target=framename>text here</a>.

I dont know if you have to put quotes around the framename but Isometimes and sometimes dont, and they work either way. But I do suggest using the quotes..

This is what I did the first try where I got just a blank page I think I just maybe missed a tag or something or didnt situate right.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">.





<body><FRAMESET COLS="20%,80%">.






Ok I see where the problem is I nested it in the wrong spot under body instead of head.

Be patient I learn slow but when I learn I retain.

I appreciate the help to this is much better than a tutorial.

Ok I have the Frame's up now I need to set my mainpage in the 80%frame. I also need to make a menu page if I assume correctly the page will be forced to fit the 20% and 80%.

I think I have it figured out I'm gonna try now..

Comment #4

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">.




</head><FRAMESET COLS="20%,80%">.



I guess I did this part wrong up above the frames are there I just need to figure out how to load my pages into each frame.






The URL is supposed to go in here? is that correct?.

This is how I did it before <FRAME SRC="Main PAGE URL" name=">.

<a href="file" target=framename>text here</a>.

Im not clear on this part..

Comment #5

<a href="file" target=framename>text here</a>.

^would this be where I put menu or main?.

This is where I got confused the frames are there I got lost with the targeting and page names ill get it eventually.

<a href="file" target=framename>text here</a>.

^or here or is this where I throw in the URL?.

The URL would be.


Im not clear on the targeting once I get that straight I should have the page..

Comment #6

Ok I figured it out thanks dude.

Now heres the next problem my page provider puts ads on every iPage site which shows up in both frames making it look lame is there a way I can make a page in HTML without pop-op ads? and link it to my site?..

Comment #7

Wow, you learned from a couple of posts. Ok..

Your going to have to search for a bannerless host. There are some out there..

When You find it, just substitue the URLs for that page and it will be bannerless..

If you want that frame only bannreless do it this way. But if you want the whole iPage site bannerless, just go to that host...

Comment #8

Might I suggest Angelfire. (.



They have the choice between on page and off page pop up ads. If you have chosen pop up there is a script I have seen places to get rid of pop ups, but forgot where Ive seen it. (not in my head since I am on paid host).

It just a simple little script,blocking ALL popups..

Comment #9

Ok I didnt know Angelfire gave you a choice..

I dont mind the banner on the mainpages, the problem is this.

On the menu page it has a non removeable banner and it shows part of a 100% page in a 20% frame which looks purely stupid.If I can find a host with just pop ups and no banners I can just make my menu page with that and slap it in there or I could move to a better host if I find one..

Im gonna check the angelfire out and see what the options are.

Thanks again.

You are nearly there, but check the structure of the code that Jac83188 first posted, as well as looking at the very first line. A.


Web page must have a.

Frameset DOCTYPE.

, not a.



Run the code through.


And it will quickly show you where you are going wrong...

Comment #11

I found the no pop code.. it's here.



Function open() {return true;}.



Put this in the head..

Comment #12

Giz, no clue what your talking about. I just through my page up in Dreamweave. Thats what it gave me, so thats what I use..

Comment #13


Giz, no clue what your talking about.


Hmm, last time I looked I used the same version of the English language that everyone else does..

The code posted by.


Has the wrong.


In it in every single example. I said to look at the code that.


Posted for guidance..


Should change the line that says:.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">.



Is not to be used for.


Pages. You need this instead:.

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN">..

Comment #14

Ive never really payed attention to that thing. Just to make sure that I had somethin like it at the top...

Comment #15

Does it make a difference or not..

Im new to this so I'm not sure but the page did come up without it what difference does it make exactly?.

So I know for future reference.


Comment #16

Well I made the necessary changes thanks for pointing that out to me I am a newbie to the core but I seem to be grasping it quickly..


Comment #17

Dont worry, youll soon be much better. It just takes time..

Good Luck..

Comment #18



Line tells the browser what sort of information is about to follow. It could be.


Version 2.0, 3.2, 4.01 or something else, perhaps.






Also tells the browser whether the following page is just a regular page, or is one that defines a set of frames..

Make up two test pages, identical except for the fact that one will have correct !DOCTYPE, and the other one will have the wrong one. Upload both of them to your web site, and then run the pages through.


- you'll soon see the results...

Comment #19

Frames have a certain appeal to them, being able to change part of a web page without affecting the rest of it, but they do have their problems, it seems tables or css are the way to go, try having a read here.



Comment #20

I know what it does. Just that I dont run my iPage site through the validator unless it has heavy problems..
