    referred by another page, but can't find results

    I have the navbar in the top frame of a frameset, but when the menus open they disappear behind the border. How do I fix that?

    You can't. The pages of a frameset are discreet - frames are top-level objects like windows - so content from one frame cannot hang over the lip into another.
    There is a fundamental problem with framesets, and I strongly discourage anyone from using them. If you use this menu you have no need for a navigation frame; simply put the script includes on each page, and any changes you make to custom.js will be reflected throughout. Furthermore, the menu scripts are always cached after their first use, even on html pages which don't cache themselves.

    However if you insist ... it is possible to script a topnav in one frame and then send the menu-building or show/hide commands to another frame. There are scripts at Dynamic Drive which can do that.

    Looks like you need to visit www.dynamicdrive.com and search for the code
    I thinks thats the only way to find the conclusion!

    Good luck

    OR,

    you could go to the "dynamic drive scripts help" forum on here, and ask them.
    Those clever folks will sort you out

    The purpose of this thread is completely unclear. It doesn't appear that you are asking for help and if you are replying to something someone else posted you should have done so in that thread. Right now it appears that you start with a question, answer it yourself, and state supporting facts, such as the fact that there are workaround menu scripts for frames.

    Due to the nature of this thread and that it will draw numerous replies questioning the intention / content, I'm closing this thread.
