    IE7 and Frames

    I have built a simple HTML-only framed site that works on all other browsers tested - but not IE7.

    The frame is set to have the side navigation point to the main frame with <FRAME NAME=MAIN SRC="home.html"> and each other page has <BASE TARGET="MAIN"> so that links will appear in that same frame. Instead all links appear in the first mentioned left nav.

    All other browsers include IE5.2, Safari, and Firefox....
    Any hints? This is driving me insane.

    Can you post the code?
    (Don't forget [code] tags ...)

    Re: IE7 and Frames

    In the index html:

    HTML Code:
    <FRAMESET COLS="137,2,*" framespacing=0 frameborder=0 border=0 border=off frameborder=off>
    	<FRAME NAME=NAV SRC="nav.html" SCROLLING=NO MARGINHEIGHT=0>
    	<FRAME NAME=SPACER SRC="spacer.html" SCROLLING=NO MARGINHEIGHT=0>
    	<FRAME NAME=MAIN SRC="home.html" SCROLLING=AUTO MARGINHEIGHT=0>
    
    </FRAMESET>
    (there are some NOFRAMES info placed before end FRAMESET - but I didn't add here to save room)


    All other pages have the <BASE TARGET="MAIN"> in each HTML.
    I tried to post the direct link but this site won't let me before 5 posts.

    Does this help at all?

    You may post the url just do not link it, or just leave off the http://www.

    Try putting the base tag within the head tags and not after.

    Re: IE7 and Frames

    Hi Dave,
    I decided to try this before heading off finally....
    that simple change works!

    I only changed the base target placement in the <nav.html> page -- would you suggest I change in each and every page? I only ask because I have hundred's of pages.

    Regardless.... thank you!!!

    Re: IE7 and Frames

    Remember all the other pages still have the code improperly placed between the head and body.
