    Address bar URLs not updating

    About the only practical way I can explain this is by reference to the website on which it is occurring: http://gloucesterdialaride.org.uk

    When you click on the various tabs for the services, the URL in the address bar doesn't change. But if you right-click on a page, and choose Properties you get an address like http://www.glosdar.plus.com/about.html (which is what the website used to be called), as it indicates in the source.

    What would be the best way of getting the address bar to show http://www.gloucesterdialaride.org.uk/about.html instead of the glosdar.plus.com (and similar for all the other web pages)? Rename the website on the web host and change all the URLs within each source page?

    Thanks

    John

    glosdar.plus.com appears to be hard coded in the frame set.

    Re: Address bar URLs not updating

    The address bar does not update as the whole site is contained within a frame.

    All the links use relative paths (all that i have looked at anyway) so all you have to do is grab all the files currently at http://www.glosdar.plus.com/ and put them at http://gloucesterdialaride.org.uk/ .

    Depending on the exact home page name convention at each host, the home page from http://www.glosdar.plus.com/ wll become the home page at http://gloucesterdialaride.org.uk/ .
    Regards

    Re: Address bar URLs not updating

    Some web hosts do this: your domain name appears in the address bar, but frames are used to refer to your user account's pages. That could explain the set-up, and may indicate that there is really no new site to move the pages to!

    Thanks to everyone for their responses, which I've passed on to the organisation, to get their web person to sort it out!
