View Full Version : Need help with iFrame coding in iWeb '09

07-08-2009, 11:33 PM
I am in the process of adding some Flash Components to my portfolio website in Apple's iWeb '09. (Yes, I know it's a "toy." Can you help me anyway?) One of them is called "Dock Menu XML 3.0" which I purchased from FlashComponents.net.

I am trying to use Dock Menu XML as a nav menu in iWeb '09. I got it in there using an iFrame with iWeb's HTML widget tool. However, I cannot get the images/links to open another html page in a second iFrame on the same page.

Here's the code I use to add Dock Menu to the page:

<IFRAME SRC = "http://web.mac.com/jeffweston/flash/digital_dockmenu/index.html" WIDTH="500px" HEIGHT="100px" FRAMEBORDER="0" --if "0" no border, otherwise "1" with border MARGINWIDTH ="0px" MARGINHEIGHT="0px" SCROLLING="no" --"no" no scrolling bar, "yes" show always, "auto" showed when need > Your browser does not support IFRAME </IFRAME>

(Doesn't seem to be a problem there.)

Here's the code I am using for the second iFrame where I would like the links from Dock Menu to open:

style="width:750px; height:538px;

And this is the code I altered in Dock Menu's images.xml file for the first image:

<photo image="images/01.jpg" bigimage="images/big/01.jpg" url="http://web.mac.com/jeffweston/beta/crisis.html" target="_showframe" lightboxInfo="Optional description for image 1"><![CDATAIntel]></photo>

Here's a link to the page I'm working on: http://www.jeffweston.com/beta/crisis.html

What I want to happen: When you click on the first image on the left (the picture of the Army jeep in flames) I want http://web.mac.com/jeffweston/ads/crisis.html to open in the big iFrame above it (with the 2 pt. gray border.)

Once I figure that code out, I can just fill in the rest of the links myself. I just don't know enough about HTML/XML code to have the slightest idea how to get it to work. Any help you could give me would be much appreciated!

Thank you in advance!
