  • iframes help

    Hi everyone! I'm new here! I just have a few problems with a layout i'm making. I'm trying to make an iframe layout using an image as a background (see http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y37/emmajh/bg2.png )

    Anyway adding 1 iframe in dreamweaver was easy but I when I try to add more they just don't show up. I need a total of 4 iframes for this site. I know there is an easier way of making iframe layouts by slicing up the image in photoshop. I have the image sliced but the tutorial has gone from the site!

    I don't know what to do! Eek! E-hugs and e-cuddles to anyone who can help out ... and maybe an e-kiss if you're lucky :P

      Please, no hugs or anything

      Here is your layout using Tables. It's not the latest and greatest way but it's going to be easy for you and doesn't use iFrames or framesets. I have no idea why you're needing iframes in that layout. It's a frameset you've drawn.

      Tables: (take out table border for use. I just put one on so the cell boundries show up for ya)
      <table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="770">
      	<td width="200" valign="top">Left Cell</td>
      	<td width="570" valign="top">
      	<!-- Right Cell -->
      	<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="570">
      		<td>Top Right Area</td>
      		<td>Middle Right Area</td>
      		<td>Bottom Right Area</td>

      But if you have your heart stuck on using a frameset you better learn how. This will get you started. Of course you'll need to make actual pages for the src="" values in the frames.
      <title>Index Page is Frameset</title>
      <frameset frameborder="0" framespacing="0" cols="200,*">
        <frame src="leftframe.html" name="left_frame" scrolling="no" scrollbars="false" noresize frameborder="no">
        <frameset frameborder="0" framespacing="0" rows="130,70,*">
      	<frame src="toprightframe.html" name="top_right_frame" scrolling="no" scrollbars="false" noresize frameborder="no">
      	<frame src="middlerightframe.html" name="middle_right_frame" scrolling="no" scrollbars="false" noresize frameborder="no">
      	<frame src="home.html" name="bottom_right_frame" scrolling="yes" scrollbars="true" noresize frameborder="no">

        That works, but you could always resort to the basics of iframes as div tags and create multiples in that format. for more info just msg me
