Website frames not opening correctly

 

Our website is organized with three panes: a banner at the opt (toppage.html), and index column on the left side (sidepage.html) and variable pane on the right.  The content of this pane is specified by link in the index column or in a URL intended to go directly to a specific page.

 

The general address of the website is

http://tmn-cot.org/index.html

 

That general address is supposed to open the three-pane opening page.

 

For the past few days the general address has linked directly to one of the variable pages or to "This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them".  But it doesn't open the three-pane opening page.

 

This happens inconsistently depending on the computer being used.

 

Please advise.

Re: Website frames not opening correctly

I do see some errors in the code, it should work like this.

 

<html>
<head>
<title>Texas Master Naturalist Cradle of Texas Chapter</title>
</head>

<frameset rows="180,*">
  <frame name="banner" scrolling="no" target="contents" src="toppage.html" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
  <frameset cols="180,*">
    <frame name="contents" target="main" src="sidepage.html" scrolling="auto" noresize marginwidth="5" marginheight="5">
    <frame name="familyday" src="homepage.html" marginwidth="5" marginheight="5" scrolling="auto" target="_self"> 
  </frameset>
  <noframes><p>This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them. &nbsp; <a href="homepage.htm">Click here</a> to view homepage without frames.</p></noframes>
</frameset>

</html>

 

But it is important to note that frameset is now obsolete.  It is at the browser developers discretion how long they'll support this legacy HTML code.
