    frame name problem

    ballo666 Community Member
      i created a simple 3 frame webpage. 100 pixel top frame, a 100 pixel left frame and a main frame in the middle. All my pages (that open within the main frame) and the 3 frames are titled, however when i try to preview it says "untitled document" for everything that is opened within the main frame. if the pages are opened by themselves there is no problem displaying the titles. any help on how to fix this problem is much appreciated.

      also i downloaded the frame jammer extension in an effort to see if it would correct this but im not sure how to use it properly.

      thnx

          Framed sites get their title from the FRAMESET page - not from a page
          displaying in a frame. Your 3 page framed site actually starts with 4
          pages. The page displaying in the top frame, the page in the left frame,
          the page in the main frame, and the frameset itself. You need to add
          your title to the frameset page.

            The reason for using or not using frames should be based on a) your site's
            needs, and b) your willingness to accept the potential problems that frames
            can create for you as developer and maintainer of the site and for your
            visitors as casual users of the site.

            I am down on frames because I believe that they create many more problems
            than they solve.
            Judging from the posts here, and the kinds of problems that are described,
            the kind of person most likely to elect to use frames is also the kind of
            person most likely ill-prepared fo solve the ensuing problems when they
            arise. If you feel a) that you understand the problems and b) that you are
            prepared to handle them when they occur, and c) that you have a need to use
            frames, then by all means use them.

            As far as I know, the most comprehensive discussions of frames and their
            potential problems can be found on these two links -
