i have been stressing for 2 days now about a set of frames , i followed what the books and online sites tell me and i have tryed changeing things up on my own but nothing works. i have 3 frames made on a page but i can only get one of the frames to display its page.
<HTML>
<FRAMESET rows="40%,*">
<FRAMESET cols="30%,*">
<FRAME name="leftframe" scr="NAVIGATOR.html">
<FRAME name="banner" src="BANNER.html">
<FRAME name="mainframe" scr="MAIN.html">
</FRAMESET>
</HTML>
i can get the banner to show but nothing else , what can i do to make these pages show ?

Well, I'm sure a lot of people might suggest that you stop using frames and try CSS positioning instead...

<FRAME name="leftframe" scr="NAVIGATOR.html">
<FRAME name="banner" src="BANNER.html">
<FRAME name="mainframe" scr="MAIN.html">

But when we get stressed, it's sometimes very easy to forget to...

i tryed changeing

...Check our syntax.

Well if this is the entire page, you are missing some parts of the code. Granted frames are not recommended, but its your choice.

Your frames are also defined for only two...I moved the one frame up to what I think you meant.


<html>

<frameset rows="40%,*">
<frame name="banner" src="BANNER.html">
<frameset cols="30%,*">
<frame name="leftframe" src="NAVIGATOR.html">
<frame name="mainframe" src="home.html">
</frameset>
</frameset>

</html>

Then just change the sources for the frames. The link I posted has all the info about frames.

Also, you could try to persuade your client to use better practice, there are a lot of reasons :thumbsup: I have clients who want flash intros to their sites, and I tell them no. Of course I talk to them about some of the statistics of how many visitors can be lost because of a landing page like that and they listen :)

I agree with Jeremy. It would be better for you to convince them, than have another web publisher do so, later on. Ideally, you want people to come back to you. Yes, it's their choice, at the end of the day, though they might appreciate being informed of their options.

One more thing. At the risk of sounding dreadfully sententious (I hate pedants) but I feel it would be a terrible shame to perfect your syntax and web standards, only to let yourself down on the spelling, punctuation and grammar, which is so essential to publishing.

That's meant to be helpful, by the way. Sorry. I hope you are not dyslexic; in which case, I'd understand, though I suspect you think text-speak is acceptable, outside of an environment which charges by the word.

Best wishes
