You need a frameset page that creates four frames (maybe named
articles_index.html) containing something like:
Border Collies N Stuff Puppy Tutorial
<frame rows="100,*,200" border="0">
<frame src="header.html" name="header" scrolling="no" resize="no"
<frame src="l_border.html" name="l_border" scrolling="no" resize="no"
<frame src="articles_main.html" name="main" scrolling="yes"
<frame src="footer.html" name="footer" scrolling="no" resize="no"
Actually I did all this before scrolling down to see all the stuff at the
bottom of your page. I made the adjustments in the frameset source above but
you will have a real problem now. In an average 800 x 600 screen (with the
window maximized) you are eating up half of all your real estate with the
header and footer frames. You need to consider condensing this to allow your
main reason for existing, the content to breathe.
Now you need to create the pages for each frame and match the file name to
what you have defined in your frameset definitions, in this case:
topborder.html, l_border.html, articles_main.html, and footer.html.
Basically the title and top row of red dots will go into the header frame
and all the navigation buttons and spacers will go into the l_border frame
and your content into the main frame.
Something to consider about frames. Some search engines have difficulty with
them and your site will not be indexed properly. Additionally if someone
bookmarks the main frame and they return to your site using this URL, they
will be without all the navigation aids you have in the l_border frame.
Finally, I see you have defined the font (typeface) for the title on your
page to a very uncommon face. You need to realize that very few people will
see this unless they have the typeface installed on their systems.
This'll get you started. Good luck, frames can be challengeing at best and a
good gray matter exercise at times.
- Hi Bob:
Thanks I will play with this ... should each navigation button on the left be
going to another frame.htm file which would have the same look but call a
lesson 1 , 2, 3, 4 ,5,6,7,8??? I know there is an easier way ... what I want is
lessons to look like they are coming up between the red dots ...
anyway I think I can accomplish the look that way ... maybe java or css ??.
- I have everything working but .... the bottom row ... can someone see why.. i
can't seem to get it to have two rows and two columns
bottom row ...??
<TITLE>Puppy Tutorial Clinic</TITLE>
<FRAMESET ROWS="87,*" frameborder=NO border=0 framespacing=0>
<FRAME SRC="top.htm" NAME="menu_frame" frameborder=0 border=0 scrolling=no>
<FRAME SRC="bottom.htm" NAME="menu_frame" frameborder=0 border=0
<FRAMESET COLS="120,*" frameborder=NO border="0" framespacing=0>
<FRAME SRC="articles_index.html" NAME="side" scrolling=NO frameborder="0"
<FRAME SRC="http://www.stockdogsaction.com/articles/lesson1.htm" NAME="main"
Your Browser Does Not Support Frames. You can still start at <A
HREF="lesson1.htm">lesson1.htm</A> but it does look much nicer with frames.
Any Help would be appreciated ...
Happy Stockdoggin ......
