Hi,
I copied your source into notepad,replaced your file names with one of mine, saved it as a .html file, opened it, and got a note - created in easy designer... nothing more.

So in your code I deleted everything from the <body> down to, but not including the <p> just above your frames info (see below) - and then it worked, my file showed up in the 2 frames, each with scrollbars. Is that what you'r going for?

By the way - your page isn't coming up - just AOL hometown - but that happens alot on AOL.

I should have looked at the link above. Are you trying to have 3 frame areas in your page - one across the top and then the bottom section divided vertically? If so - you need to have 4 files - the frameset file that specifies the frames and the source files, and the 3 source files which show in the 3 sections.

im sorrie hehe ,i might have confused my self and you there for a moment..at first i wanted just two frame files..till i found out i can do three (one on top and two divided like you stated)...could u help me out on doing this ? :thumbsup: thankz if you can!:D :o ,mostly im having trouble w/the one that combines them all..but any help is appreciated

okay, the code below is for the actual frameset file, this is the file that specifies the size/shape of the frames (sections), and specifies the other files that will appear in each frame section. The code below is all you need in that file - It's the same as the code on the "so you want colored frames", only with different source files specified.

copy & paste this code into a file & save it as whatever.html,

then create the other files, file_a.html, file_b.html, and file_c.html (or rename your files, or change the filenames below)

be sure tohave them all in the same folder, as no path is specified

then when you open the file whatever.html, you should see file_a across the top, file_b on the bottom left, and file_c on the bottom right.

here is it:

<FRAME SRC="file_c.html">

by the way, AOL has a tutorial that will walk you through putting together a frameset step by step. I'm not crazy about AOl in general, but their HTML tutorial is v-e-r-y easy to follow.

when you go into aol, to the upper left of your screen, click on the "keyword" button.

in the box that appears type in html

in the new window, to the left is a box with 4 tabs across the top, choose "basic HTML", and then choose "step by step", scroll down the list that comes up - the last item on it is "working with frames" - and you are there! Have fun.

I never used the easy designer on aol, so I don't know anything about it - but the 4 "files" are only making 1 "page" - again, I just don't know. When I had my own page on my aol server space I wrote my code in html in notepad and uploaded using the "my ftp" on aol (use keyword my ftp to find it), and there were no page limits, only space limits. Sorry not to be much help - and my experience with aol is that they are not either!:)

Hey have u ever heard of AOL Press> some dude or girl had told me to download it ..its an "old school" editor tho :D ..its supposed to make frames much easier, im not sure tho..this is all just like Jibbal Jabbal to me :rolleyes: ;) :o ,hehe

if you go through the basic html tutorial on aol it won't be jibble jabble anymore. Once you learn it - it's really simple. I deliberately learned html instead of using those other things. I don't mean to be "not helpful", but that's really the best advice I can give you.

I didn't scrutinize the code, but but here are a few things to check right away - are your html files in the same folder as the frame page? Also, the aol servers are very fussy about upper & lower case in file names & extensions-however you have them in the actual file name is exactly how you must have them in your code (which is why I make my file names all lower case - less to remember). Check these things first. Oh yeah, that link only brings up the aol hometown "site not found" page.

Schools just have alot to write about. Plenty of people, stuff going on, issues, events, and then you automatically have an audience interested in your webpage.
