    Cool Novice on web page designing

    Hi
    I seem to be experiencing difficulties with getting my work displayed in my frames, just keep getting the page cannot be displayed view. Here is my code
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>carbootersheaven</title>
    </head>
    <frameset rows="100,*">
    <frame src="top.html" NAME="top">
    <frameset cols="160,*">
    <frame src="guide to carboot sales.html" NAME="guide to carboot sales">
    <frame src="traders and the law.html" NAME="traders and the law">
    </frameset>
    </frameset>
    <body>



    </body>
    <noframes>
    <a href="your main page.html">Click Here</a>
    </noframes>
    </html>


    I think I must of overlooked something, all my files relating to my web page are on a floppy disk. They are all saved as Html.
    Please Please as anyone any ideas I only have another week left to finish this assignment, so any help would be appreciated

    Hi!

    A quite uncommon way to deal with html files. You would better copy them to your harddisk. Anyway, try to put 'file:///a:/' (if it is drive a) in front of your filenames. You might also face problems because of the spaces in the filenames. If so, rename your files and modify your code accordingly.

    If the files are in a subfolder of the floppy's root directory, don't forget to put that into your frames' srcs as well.

    Good luck - Pit

    Page names should NEVER have imbedded spaces. If they do, they must be encoded.

    Arrow thanks

    I have now renamed my files to pageone.html and pagetwo.html, but this still doesn't make any difference,please help I could do with someone to talk me thru it step by step, starting with the docs and where to store them. I have read so many help files that my head feels like it may burst. I am not normally this thick, just got my first I.T Telematics exam done today so I might be able to concentrate a bit more.
    So if anyone can help I would be very grateful

    Hi!

    It seems you didn't read my pm which I sent in reply to yours yesterday. The information I gave you there should help.

    Regards - Pit

    just read it

    Sorry about that I have only just read it, had to revise last night for my exam this morning.
    I have done all you said, I have even moved the files now from floppy to My documents. I am using win M.E and can only use windows notepad to create my webpage.
    I have viewed what I have done, when it opens up I get a web browser, divided by the frameset, but not my documents. I have done a practice one and that worked, I have copied the code but just changed the names of the docs which doesn't work.
    Oh dear I am afraid I am running out of time with this assignment, can You help pretty please

    Hi!
    I have viewed what I have done, when it opens up I get a web browser, divided by the frameset, but not my documents.
    If that is the case, the frameset document and the files to be displayed in the frames are not in the same folder, but according to your code, they ALL have to be in the same folder.

    Cheers - Pit

    here's what I have done. created a folder in My docs called it Practice1, inside that there are two sub folders named menu(to appear on the left side of screen)and main (to appear on the right). In each of these are the docs I need to appear as appropriate. Then I have my frameset doc.
    So when I view my file in explorer named frameset all I get is the frameset and no docs
    Can send you my docs if you want
    Thanks

    Hi!

    Please - no subfolders!

    ALL THE FILES HAVE TO BE IN ONE AND THE SAME FOLDER.

    Cheers - Pit

    Hi!

    Well, I only see one chance to help. Create a zip with all the files, including the frameset and post it as an attachment.

    Cheers - Pit

    Hi!

    OOOPS!

    Your frameset's frames
    <frame name="menu" src="menu.html">
    <frame name="main" src="main.html">

    The files, you sent apart from the frameset document and the image are:
    CARBOOTERSHEAVE1HOME.htm
    pageone.htm
    pagetwo.htm
    venues.htm

    Can you see, why it doesn't work??

    In your frameset, you obviously have to put the correct filenames as the frames' srcs. Example: if you want CARBOOTERSHEAVE1HOME.htm to appear in the top frame, this should read like that:
    <frame name="menu" src="CARBOOTERSHEAVE1HOME.htm">

    Hope, that helps.

    Good luck - Pit
