View Full Version : load multiple frames from homepage

Jun 17th, 2002, 11:50 PM
I created a 'simple (non-frames based)' homepage that links to one of 3 framesets.

However the client now wants to add a partial nav bar to the homepage that allows the visitor to load the frameset with the content changing in the main frame depending on which item they click.

In other words from this homepage I need to load the frameset but be able to specify the contents from one of the frames.

Any of the script I found online dealt with changing multiple frames from the frameset, but not from a document outside it.

I hope I made myself clear, if not lemme know,

thanks for any quick suggestions,

/me would just a link® to 'individual' framesets 'containing' the information where you want it in the just a respective® frames...

there are codes out there that say...hey when you click here load just a this® page n' that one in 'this' frameset...however /me finds its bestest to make 'framesets' for each 'link'...

....sorry but I didn't quite understand you comments. Is there a way to specify the content for one frame without creating separate framesets.....cause I don't really want to create 20 framesets.....

thanks for the clarification,

You could supply a query string in the link to a frameset and use a bit of scripting to determine which content should be loaded in the target frameset. I can't give you an example, but maybe there's something you could use among the Freewarejava-scripts.
Ín the mean time, i'll try and work out this idea a bit more.

I remembered a discussion on the old forum on placing documents which have been bookmarked individually back into frames; the solution for that contains much of the elements you are looking for.
