    Hi Guys

    A little question for you brainy types...... :D

    just setting up a frameset and i was wondering if it was possible to use a

    [code:1:f4fc21c6be]&lt;noframes redirect&#40;&quot;www.btinterent.com/sirdragon/noframesventure/index.htm&quot;&#41;&lt;/noframes&gt;[/code:1:f4fc21c6be]

    or would that be

    [code:1:f4fc21c6be]&lt;noframes&gt;redirect&#40;&quot;www.btinterent.com/sirdragon/noframesventure/index.htm&quot;&#41;&lt;/noframes&gt;[/code:1:f4fc21c6be]nah that cannot be right its gotta be inside a tag..... :?
    or would i have to enclose it all in a server tag???

    [code:1:f4fc21c6be]&lt;noframes&gt;&lt;server&gt;redirect&#40;&quot;www.btinterent.com/sirdragon/noframesventure/index.htm&quot;&#41;&lt;/server&gt;&lt;/noframes&gt;[/code:1:f4fc21c6be]

    in order to redirect to alternative site if the user doesnt have frame capabiliity. rather than having to add all the alternative data between the noframes tags.....

    any ideas

    You could just include a simple java-script redirection between the &lt;noframes&gt; tags.

    [code:1:0a28d87600] &lt;script language=&quot;JavaScript&quot;&gt;
    self.location.href='www.btinterent.com/sirdragon/noframesventure/index.htm';
    &lt;/script&gt;[/code:1:0a28d87600]

    I've not tested this but is should work, although its very unlikely that anyone would be using a browser that doesn't support frames anyway.

    HTH,
    Si

    I thought frames were old hat?

    Well our web services team forbid them.

    Your comments please :eek:

    the Tutors :alien at NITLC sort of frown :noway on using frames...so i want to set up the &lt;noframes&gt; aspect in pure :angel html code if at all possible.

    my original site called for frames so I did that in Dreamweaver, whilst I was doing the Advanced Access course.

    Now I am doing the HTML course I am banned :banned from using dreamweaver... :cry: .so i figure that the &lt;noframes&gt; part of the site would be a good challenge. You know getting the &lt;noframes&gt; to look the same as the frame site. its nearly there (well as near as I'm going to get) but its the redirect that is causing the problems.

    A normal &lt;a href&gt; wouldn't work but maybe a &lt;onload &gt;attribute might, failing that it will have to be javascript, (is onload javascript??) its not exactly cheating as it isnt ON the actual HTML site as such........ :lol: although i may be spliting hairs there.

    If you use this HTML action in the Head of your document this will cause a 0 second refresh to an alternative URL.

    [code:1:5bd408854f]&lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;REFRESH&quot; content=&quot;0;url=http&#58;//www.btinterent.com/sirdragon/noframesventure/index.htm&quot;&gt;[/code:1:5bd408854f]

    EG:
    [code:1:5bd408854f]&lt;!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC &quot;-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN&quot;&gt;
    &lt;html&gt;
    &lt;head&gt;
    &lt;title&gt;Your Page Title&lt;/title&gt;
    &lt;meta http-equiv=&quot;REFRESH&quot; content=&quot;0;url=http&#58;//www.btinterent.com/sirdragon/noframesventure/index.htm&quot;&gt;&lt;/HEAD&gt;
    &lt;BODY&gt;
    Optional page text here.
    &lt;/BODY&gt;
    &lt;/HTML&gt;[/code:1:5bd408854f]
