    frame breaking codes

    Hello everyone!! My name is Rebecca and I am having some trouble with frame breaking codes. I have set up a website through godaddy and trafficg wont let people view my site because I have frame breaking code script???? I have tried to do some research, but im so confused, I can't even figure out what the heck frames are, not to mention, I have no clue how to disable them. Any suggestions??

    Re: frame breaking codes

    Are you using a JavaScript to "break the frames"? Some people attempt to basically put someone's else's website / content on their own website using frames (thus stealing bandwidth, etc).

    Some webmasters will put a break frames code to prevent this.

    I see you have the frame break code on your website. This has a genuine purpose and I suggest leaving it in place. TrafficG...avoid these silly traffic gimmiks

    Re: frame breaking codes

    So I should just leave it alone? What about web traffic?

    Depends - why do you want it there? I usually tend to try to avoid any / all JavaScript when possible because of potential problems with browsers.

    I have no idea about TrafficG personally - never used it and agree with the above user, sounds like a gimmick and could potentially cause you other problems later

    I was very surprised to see an admin, on a website, actually post this response.

    What about respecting the traffic, that frame busting javascript steals?

    In netiquette terms framebusting scripts are actually a big no-no.

    There are many genuine, and innocent reasons for using frames, or iframes, and it's not only very easy, but incredibly common, for code, especially url's, to be inserted either legitimately, or illegitimately, into a page within that frameset, that leads traffic intentionally or otherwise, to another page that rather rudely then breaks the frameset, and steals the traffic.

    The correct netiquette approach for a webmaster to use, who doesn't wish for his material to be displayed in a frameset, whether it was done intentionally, or unintentionally, is to make a redirect script to a top page, that displays a message informing the surfer that the page requested was not intended to be viewed in frames, and should they wish to view that page then they can view it at an url, that is then linked, to open in a new tab, or browser page, which doesn't break the frameset, and steal the original sites traffic, thus allowing the surfer to make the choice themselves as to where they actually wish to surf.

    I know this is an old thread, but it comes up very highly on a google search into this subject, so I felt it was important enough to sign up here and try to offer an alternative, to those receiving bad advice, and a rather disrespectful policy, from this website.

    I doubt the OP will ever comeback and read this thread, but I hope anyone stumbling upon it, from a google search, will rethink the use of such code, and put in a more social, and polite solution, that doesn't arrogantly steal traffic.
