Disappearing frame

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Lorenzo Thurman, Oct 19, 2004.

  1. I have tow frames generated using this code:
    <frameset rows="75%,25%" frameborder="1" border="3" framespacing="0">
    <frame src="topFrame.cfm" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0"
    name="topFrame.html" scrolling="auto" title="topFrame">
    <frame src="bottomFrame.cfm" name="bottomframe" marginwidth="0"
    marginheight="0" scrolling="auto" title="bottomframe">
    </frameset>


    When I view this in a browser, both frames show up initially, but when
    the browser finishes rendering the pages, the bottom frame disappears.
    The link in the browsers location field shows the URL for the top frame.

    What do I need to do to get this to work? I remember doing frames some
    time ago, but don't remember having to do anything special. Can someone
    help me out?

    TIA

    Oh dear. Frames are very rarely a good idea.

    You have failed to provide a URI to display the problem. My guess is that
    the author of the document you load in the top frame didn't want it to be
    framed and took steps (with JavaScript) to prevent it being so.
