    I am VERY new to this, I have no HTML editor and am trying to write everything by hand. I want to create a contents bar down one side of a framed page, to appear on every pageof the site. Each individual selection should be a labelled button. What is the best way to do this ?

    (Sorry if this is a dimwit question. )

    I'm confused; do you mean a navigation frame on the left of the window that, when you click links in it, loads pages in the right frame?

    Here we go:

    Put this in index.html:
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Page Title Here</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    </head>
    
    <frameset cols="250,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" rows="*"> 
      <frame name="nav" noresize src="nav.html">
      <frame name="content" src="default.html">
    </frameset>
    <noframes><body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
    Your browser doesn't support frames, which are necessary to view this page.
    </body></noframes>
    </html>
    In nav.html:
    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Nav Bar</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    </head>
    
    <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
    <ul>
      <li><a href="link1.html" target="content">Link 1</a></li>
      <li><a href="link2.html" target="content">Link 2</a></li>
      <li><a href="link3.html" target="content">Link 3</a></li>
    </ul>
    </body>
    </html>
    Then put whatever HTML you want in link1.html, link2.html, and link3.html; those pages will load in the right frame.

    A million thanks, It works ! I was sort of getting there but in a more roundabout way I think ! I can understand the "how" once I see the source code and it makes it logical then !

    I'm trying to avoid shelling out 120 for Front Page which is probably the "easy option" and seeing if I can batter the underlying rules into my skull first !

    Thanks again.

    Get Dreamweaver, not Frontpage

    Either way it is good starting out learning the language itself and not "cheating" using a WYSIWYG editor. I use Dreamweaver mainly because I do very complex layouts now and it's hard to read table code in HTML.

    Either way, just post threads if you have some questions
