View Full Version : Can I do this without Javascript?????

Hell smarter people : )

I run a small nonprofit org, and am looking to upgrade our site to something cleaner like UNBOUNDARY'S website here:


Don't laugh, but I build our website with Microsoft Publisher, so I don't know any Code or Javascript.

Is there any way I can have this "middle scrolling frame" like they do without having to know code. Perhaps an easy cut & paste code I can embed to give me that middle frame.

Any assistance you can give is appreciated.

Hello laymangroup,
Are you just looking to duplicate the 3 column layout or the way the navigation links on the right scroll you to that area in the text?

The layout is pretty simple, 3 columns floated left in a centered containing div.

Have a look at these 3 column examples (http://www.noupe.com/css/9-timeless-3-column-layout-techniques.html)and see if one suits your need, see #7 in particular.

Thanks so much for your help...

I have so many things to link to, it would be amazing if I could like to sections of the middle frame as they do.

That site is doing it with js
<li class="hns1"><a href="#actonwhatmatters" onClick="javascript:pageTracker._trackPageview('/whatwebelieve/actonwhatmatters/');" title="Act On What Matters"><span>Act On What Matters</span></a></li>

But it can also be done with anchors like this (http://www.**************/anchors.html).

Hmm, wonder why that link gets edited. The board must think it's pron or something.
Easy enough like this -
In the markup you have text in an id like this - <p id="destination_id">Some text in a paragraph</p>

In your menu in the sidebar you have a link like this - <a href="#destination_id">Select here to go to a location in the current XHTML document</a>
