I am having a problem figuring out the frames. I have A frameset with a top a left and a main frame. I just want to be able to keep the top and left the same and change the content of the main in subsequent pages. If anyone could help I would be very grateful.

RE: frames and using them with a template basis

There are a lot of things that can be said about frames, so perhaps you can try to look at the link below first, and then come back when you have more questions.
Your question is quite "basic" (no offence :-)), so i reall y think this tutorial will help you out great (as it has helped many ppl out here).

Good luck, and come back if somethings dont work out fine.

RE: frames and using them with a template basis

Ok Dale, i am curious to see how it works, and to see your site. Great discission to get rid of the frames-thingy. Unless frames are built quite professional i dont think any lay-out (with HTML) can beat normal tables. :-)

RE: frames and using them with a template basis

I have a website that uses frames simply because the site was for Avatars and gestures for the Excite Chat program. The reason for frames was because when people went to my website while they were in excite chat the frames kept all the people in the same room and still be able to go to the other webpages at my site. Before i switched to frames every time they went to a different page they would go to a new room also. I had people complaining about that until i switched to frames.
