    Unhappy CGI + iFrame = Frustration (solution?)

    Ok. I have set a website using html, flash navigation and 2 iFrames. Normally what happens is; when a vistor clicks the flash nav Frame1 loads a new page and Frame2 loads a new image. Works fine.
    Enter: CGI Guestbook.
    Once the guestbook page is loaded in Frame1 clicking the Flash Nav only loads a new image in Frame2 (nothing changes in Frame1)
    sorry - I can't send you to demonstration. I don't have this guestbook publicly available because of this issue.
    Any suggestions? Or what additional information can I provide to target issue/resolve?
    Thanks in advance ... jag

    Re: CGI + iFrame = Frustration (solution?)

    it sounds like a problem with the "target" setting in your html, or your javascript (if you use it)

    can you send the source? it would make it 100x eassier to help out!

    Re: CGI + iFrame = Frustration (solution?)

    Thanks for the reply ...

    Flash Menu Buttons Utilize:
    Code:
     
    on (release) 
    {
    getURL("media.htm","F1");
    getURL("_template/sidebar03.jpg","F2");
    }
    Code in Head of Main HTML Page:
    Code:
     
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    body {
    margin-left: 10px;
    margin-top: 10px;
    background-color: #3399CC;
    }
    -->
    </style>
     
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    <!--
    function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
    var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}
    }
    //-->
    </script>
     
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="_template/style.css" media="screen">
     
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    <!--
    function MM_reloadPage(init) { //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
    if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
    else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();
    }
    MM_reloadPage(true);
    //-->
    </script>
    iFrame Codes in Main HTML Page:
    Code:
     
    <iframe name="F1" id="frame1" src="news.htm" width="450" height="420" marginwidth="1" marginheight="1" 
    border="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="yes"> the mystic underground says your browser does not support the iFrame 
    format used by this site</iframe>
     
    <iframe name="F2" id="frame2" src="_template/sidebar01.jpg" width="220" height="450" marginwidth="1" marginheight="1" 
    border="0" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"> the mystic underground says your browser does not support the iFrame 
    format used by this site</iframe>
    The Main HTML Page can be viewed here:
    http://www.themysticunderground.com/main.htm

    The Guestbook can be viewed here:
    http://themysticunderground.com/cgi-bin/guestbook/guestbook.cgi

    I know this is a lot of information, and I usually like to figure it out on my own but I haven't been able to and will sincerely appreciate any help ...

    Re: CGI + iFrame = Frustration (solution?)

    After some tinkering , I have determined that it is the Flash navigation that is causing the problem. I removed the Java script in header and there was no improvement. Added text navigation links to the Main HTML page and everything worked fine. *arg*

    that is nice to hear... i find it is much eassier to find the problem if you cut out all the "fluff" (suff that is not neccessary).

    Re: CGI + iFrame = Frustration (solution?)

    UPDATE: thought i'd share the resolve, incase you guys ever see this question again ... would you believe the whole issue wasn't really an issue at all! I decided this morning to load the pages to server side and see what the response was and everything worked fine. Obviously it had something to do with testing the pages on my pc. *i feel like a moron* Yes it took me a week, and tons of forums reads .. and while i am embarrassed to admit it to you guys ... now you have the simple answer for the next blonde who posts this question
    Add - thank you ALL for baring with me while i look at the trees .. instead of the forest *lol*

    lol , it is usually the simple things

    Anything that requires a server side language (perl,asp,php...) either you must have it installed on your computer or you must upload the page to view it.
