Thread: Pull Down Menu As A Separate Frame?

  1. #1

    On my site I have a pull down menu on every page but this means editing each one every time a page is made so I would like to ask:

    Can I have to pull down menu on a separate frame so when a link is chosen it opens the page in my other frame?

    Yep. Check out this page: http://www.thesitewizard.com/archive/navigation.shtml

    The only difference will be that, where it says "location.href", you'll need to change it to "[frame name].location.href". Replace "[frame name]" with the name of the frame where you want the page to load.

    Or you can keep it on the same page and using Dreamweaver select the menu and put in it the library. Replace all of your other menus on the other pages with the one in the library. Now when you make changes to the menu in the library, Dreamweaver will automatically change every menu in th site to match.

    Or you could use frames. Just make sure the target is set correctly

    ok, the site is confusing and so is dreamweaver, lol.

    <script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
    <!-- Begin
    function formHandler(form){
    var URL = document.form.site.options[document.form.site.selectedIndex].value;
    window.location.href = URL;
    }
    // End -->
    </SCRIPT>

    <center>
    <form name="form">
    <select name="site" size=1 onChange="javascript:formHandler()">
    <option value="">Go to...

    &#60;&#33;-- Option 1 -- To have the pull down menu go to your own pages, change the URL within the quotation marks and the link name. --&#62;
    &#60;&#33;-- Option 2 -- You may remove or add entire lines to increase or decrease the number of links. --&#62;
