Anyone here familiar with using frames in macromedia dreamweaver? I just got mx 2004, and I designed our clubs page and all, but I can't figure out how to upload the seperate pages to the webserver as one whole page. Any Ideas? If not I'll probably end up making it a page by page site, as frames is a lot more complicated than I thought it would be... :lol: thanks :mrgreen:

You create a page then create a frameset in the page (Modify>Frameset>"whatever split you want"). You can then drag the border of the frame to whichever height/width that you desire. You will then want to target each frame and give it a name (like leftframe) from with-in the Property Inspector. Now save the frameset (File>Save Frameset). Now you can edit any of the frames to your liking. To save what's inside each frame you click inside the frame you want saved then go File>Save, and save it as an HTM or HTML file, or you can save all frames by going File>Save All Frames.

Hope that helps. If I was too confusing just let me know what you didn't understand.

Yep, I gotcha, thanks for the info :wink: Here's another question though: Let's say I have two frames; one the lefthand side that only displays links and the main frame that displays information. How do I get the links on the side frame to open in the mainframe (instead of in the sideframe)?

Greetings,

I used to use frames when 3600 baud modems were the fastest there were. In todays modern era of 56K and broadband very few sites successfully use frames. I'd advise against it, and simply optimize the graphics you use, and make sure that the graphics you do use help enhance your website rather then detract from it.

Yep, I've decided to forgo the whole frames thing, as it seems its a LOT more difficult than it looks, especially for a novice. Of course, that's the least of my worries when it comes to building the site, since I've forgotten most of the more advanced tags we learned in highschool in html class, lol :roll:

Dreamweaver will do most of those advanced tags for you. Just remember that a website should be clean, neat, have valid solid content, and stay up to date. If the bells and whistles help you do that cool. If they simply distract from the true goals, leave them on the shelf. :!:

I think I'm kinda getting the hang of it! :mrgreen: I pretty much already set up the layout of the website and it looks alright to the rest of the club, just a few more modifications need to be made, specifically on the homepage section.

But hey, I almost forgot. Do you guys know of a tag that will prevent the background image from repeating over and over again? Tried looking it up in the 'help' section, but surprise surprise, it wasn't that helpful, lol :? thanks :D

Put the following in the <head> tag:
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body {
background-image: url(/images/image.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
}
-->
</style></head>


You should have a look at this tutorial, it should help you out:

Not yet, but only because I can't find a good server website to publish it to. Any suggestions?

If you don't mind paying, here are some helpful web servers:
http://www.ixwebhosting.com/index.php/v2/pages.dspmain/aff/opiemarketing
http://www.hostmonster.com/
http://startlogic.com/special_promo.html
and many more are available on google. I personally have had better luck with sites that you have to pay a little for rather than free sites. Because when you pay you get better bandwidth capabilities and and more storage, not to mention the MUCH better support team that you have access to! hope these help a little bit, and all the rest of us techies are more than willing to help ya with any other questions you might have.
