    For some reason, whenever I click a link on my website the address bar doesn’t refresh. Essentially what I get is an increasingly long address.

    Wondering is anyone can help?

    Give us the URL to the page you're having problems with and maybe I can give you some suggestions. Are you using frames for your site?... are you using database driven content that is appending URL variables to a CGI "query_string" ???

    I am assuming that it's not something silly like all the hyperlinks being relative?

    ie. href="./mysite/x/x" or even "mysite/x/x" ?

    Thank for your reply.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

    My hyperlinks look like this for example:

    <a href="../welcome.html" target="_top" onMouseOut="window.status=''; return true" onMouseOver="window.status='My welcome to you'; return true">

    It's funny that this seems to work when testing the page on my computer but when I upload it that's when the problems start.

    Sorry,

    The URL for my site is:

    http://users.froggy.com.au/sdrmb/ind...l/welcome.html

    Yes, I am using frames. But I'm not using any database driven content.

    I didn't have time to look into it too deeply, but your problem has something to do with the fact taht you're using frames and targeting the "_top" frame... try targeting the frame that you want to change the content for ("mid")... and only make one frameset for the whole thing... not sure exactly what you're doing with this whole thing.... looks like a jumble.

    Micheal... your page has a few issues... let's start with the first...

    Frames - are a pain in the *** and do very little for your website. They also can really hurt you in the search engines...

    That being said, if you MUST use them... you have to do a few things.

    1. Lose the <BASE HREF=""> tags from your pages that define your framesets. Your relative links are building on top of them that's why they keep expanding.

    2. Don't use new framesets for every page. (again this is where I'd tell you to just use tables)

    3. Fix your links in the top navigation... Make them look like this...
    <a href="about_mike.html" target="mid" onMouseOut="window.status=''; return true" onMouseOver="window.status='Everything you wanted to know about me'; return true">

    see how the link points to the "mid" frame and loads the content html file rather than pointing to a whole NEW frameset?

    Hope this helped
