Not quite frames but

Ok here is the problem. I want to have my website have frames but I dont want it to be controlled by its own scroll bar.

Its like I want to be able to load websites (like frames) but instead in the cells of a table. That way the whole page expands in size depending on the size of the website loaded and everything is still controlled by one scrollbar.

Is this possible?

Here is an example of what it should look like: . See how they use frames but everything is still controlled by one scrollbar?




I doesn’t look like frames to me. Looks like Flash… ?!?

ok, im am going to forget that comment.


did you gave a shot with ssi files?

ssi = server side include

it works that way:

1 - program your page layout in the html editor of your choice, your page should look like the image attached;

2 - then you cut the elements that would make a ‘frame’ like:

> [COLOR=DarkGreen]Top menu[/COLOR]
> [COLOR=DarkRed]Contents[/COLOR]
> [COLOR=Navy]bottom barr[/COLOR]

3 - in a new blank file (with no code at all) paste the codes that make the [COLOR=DarkGreen]Top menu[/COLOR] and save as [COLOR=DarkGreen]top_menu.ssi[/COLOR];

4 - do the same for the [COLOR=Navy]bottom barr[/COLOR];

5 - then leave the [COLOR=DarkRed]Contents[/COLOR] in this file along with the page´s code, and name it according to the contents subject.

6 - in that page, were was the other elements ([COLOR=DarkGreen]Top menu[/COLOR] and [COLOR=Navy]bottom barr[/COLOR]), you place a tag like this:

<!--#include file="top_menu.ssi" -->


<!--#include file="botton_barr.ssi" -->

the codes for the page and the includes should look like this:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<!--#include file="top_menu.ssi" -->
<table width="100%" height="300"  border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#990000">
    <td>contents goes here</td>
<!--#include file="botton_barr.ssi" -->

Top menu INCLUDE:

<table width="100%" height="100"  border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <td bgcolor="#006600">top menu goes here</td>

Botton barr INCLUDE:

<table width="100%" height="100"  border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#000066">
    <td>botton bar goes here</td>

hope it is what you´re looking for :wink:

Lol. It’s Flash!
As far as doing it with table cells go though, you might want to create a table with 3 columns and use a tag like this for the TD cells:
<td valign=“top”>
And this way, all your content for each cell with be aligned along the very top kinda like a newspaper and the whole page will scroll at once.
