View Full Version : Iframes please help

02-21-2009, 07:34 PM
Hi all,

I have created a frameset which has three documents. One of the documents has a iframe embedded in it. I want to link to the embedded iframe. I can't figure out which code I need to put in the frame set to link to it. Please help. I'm very new to html and really need an answer quickly.

Thank you.

We really need to see your full code. We can't work properly without it.
Use the [ CODE ][ /CODE ] symbols (without the spaces) to enclose it.

Generally speaking, it is better not to use frames.

your iframe should have a name:

<iframe name="any_name"></iframe>

:Your link(s) should target that name

<a href="http://Domain_Name.com" target="any_name"">

Never had a problem with frames. Love them when they are absolutely necessary (usually NOT :p).
