Frames help needed
I have a 4 frame page. split into a left, top, bottom and middle.
I want a scrollbar on the left frame only, but theres not one on the page. How do I get a scrollbar to show up for the left frame only. Second, I'm using the left frame as a menu and I want links to open up in the middle frame, how do I do that?

Hi Bimmer. Welcome to the forums!
First off, link targeting and scrollbars are covered in the frames tutorial on the left of this page. You may well find your answers in there.
If your still stuck, please post a link to your page, or some source code, so that we can try and help.

Pay special attention to the NAME= and TARGET= attributes used in the frames launching and frames referencing files, respectively.

When you create the frame within the <frameset> set, you give each frame a name ( name="left" eg ) .
When you make your link, you specify a target. If your link was in the frame called 'left' and you want it to open within teh frame called 'main' , you would use
<a href="blah.html" target="main">Blah</a>
