Hi guys...

Ive searched the forum but an't seem to find a solution for my problem.
I have a site with a reasonably simple layout. Left column for menu and then central section where the data / words are displayed.

Problem is the site is written coded to have IFRAMES. The left menu opens the link in an ifram in the main section of the page.

Of course now google is not indexing the iframe pages.

Is there a way or CSS that I can use to still use this baisc layout so that the menu remains on the left and the main section opens the link / seperate file?

Please excuse me if it sounds dumb but I am not expereinced in this kind of stuff so its a bit hard for me.

I have learnt most thing from grabbing a template of the web and then tweaking the hell out of it...

Thanks

There's probably a good chance that you can but without seeing the code it's hard to say. Pages with iframes are often coded with tables, which is a poor basis for a layout to begin with so if this is the case I would recommend just starting fresh.

In any case though, have a look at this layout page and see if it suits your needs: http://matthewjamestaylor.com/blog/ultimate-2-column-left-menu-pixels.htm

And then there is always this layout if you want a fully "fluid" layout of the same type: http://matthewjamestaylor.com/blog/perfect-2-column-left-menu.htm

These should be time-savers unless you have a lot of customization in your page already. If so, please either post your full HTML and CSS or better yet give us a link to you live page so we can take a look. Welcome to the forums!
