    Calling all frames...

    I want to be able to link to a specific page in another website (written with FP4) that uses frames (standard top and left index and main).
    For arguments sake, the 'complete' page is '<font color=blue>default.htm</font color=blue>'. Selecting a link will load '<font color=red>special.htm</font color=red>' into the 'main' frame of 'default'
    What I would like is some guidance for writing code that, if the link points to 'special', the page is forced to open within default.

    (I am assuming that this code will need to be included within 'special.htm' - I'm not expecting the hyperlink to do the clever bit.)

    Does this gobbledegook make sense?
    TIA

    Heya Leif, easy....

    Go to http://www.thewolfmans.com/index2.html and do a View - Source.. I think this is what you want. THe only problem you may have is some site have code that block opening the poage in a frame.

    HI - Mike - thanks for responding.
    Had a look and I'm not sure - either I just can't see what I'm looking for or I explained the problem badly.

    Take 2:

    The link to your site is http://www.thewolfmans.com/index2.html - so I click on that and it takes me there.
    This page is made up of
    <font color=448800>http://www.thewolfmans.com/mainlinks.html</font color=448800> on the left and
    <font color=448800>http://www.thewolfmans.com/main.html</font color=448800> on the right.
    If I click on your webcam link, <font color=448800>http://www.thewolfmans.com/webcam.html</font color=448800> replaces your main page.

    What I am after, is to be able to link directly to that view. But, if I take that last url and create a link like so: webcam - it will open up on its own.

    What I want to know is what code you would need to put on that page, if it detects it has no 'parent' frame, to force a view as if I'd 'fingered' my way from your home page, with your mainlinks on the left.
    (Love that - reminds me of the Adams family)

    Do you see what I mean?

    Re: Calling all frames...

    ok, i think i got it, if you go to www.thewolfmans.com/webcam, you want it to go to the frames page instead of non-framed window.... I'm going to have to look, thats a toughy... if you put frames in every page, you'll have double frmes when you click on links. Lemme see what i can find...
