Hi-
I have 2 pages. page 1 has 9 links and page2 has an inline frame which shows the pages that coorrspond to the 9 links. So if i choose link 2 on page1 i want to goto page2 and have the page in the inline frame correspond to link2 on the previous page

Ok, several things -

1) Why are there two pages? Why isn't the iframe in page1?

2) This should probably be in the HTML forum. No biggee though...

3) What you need to do first is make sure your iframe has a name -

<iframe name="iframe_name">

Then in your links, add a target="iframe_name"

<a href="yourpage.html" target="iframe_name">

Again, the iframe should be part of page1, not on a seperate page.

The reason i have two pages is because the first page is the intro page to my product catalog. Once you go to the 2nd page, theres no point to return.
However, is there a way to change the source of an inline frame from a link from another page

Personally, I would forget all about iframes period.

I have very rarely seen any real use for them at all.

However, if you are going to use them, it would make the most sense to simply have the content of page1 (minus the links) in the iframe. When you click a link, you simply load the page into the existing iframe.

Oh, I think what he's saying is, page 1 links to page 2, and then page 2 must load the correct page in its iframe.

This can only really be done with links like:

page2.html?load=something.html

and page2.html can use the location.search property to get "something.html", and then load that in the iframe.

But I'm with DL here that you should avoid the usage of the iframe if at all possible.
