View Full Version : frame-link issues

10-17-2007, 06:01 AM
hey this is my second topic but everyone seems to have ignored the first so here it goes again, does anyone know how to dynamically adjust a page on load via js, etc so that only external links load in the window, but internal links load in the frame?

any help would be much appreciated...

Nope. Manually.

Or, I suppose, you could write a javascript thing that would run through the source code and guess which links should be external (ie starting with "http"), but that seems like a hassle.

that is what i was thinking, i want to know if you can use js to specify links outside my domain and recode them to open in the window instead of the frame

edit1: i dont know js so a tutorial or samples that i can work with would be great...

edit2: i dont know how hard it would be, but i want the js to sniff through the source and say apply a attribute to each of the links not starting with http://www.mydomain.net/

edit3: that isnt my domain its an example but w.e it can link lol i am cool with that...

thanks for the input, but I don't want the links to open in a new window, i just want them to open outside of the frame...

i would do this myself but the site encompasses a forum so i want a script to do it automatically when people view any links the users post...

edit1: after looking at that file i think i can change it a tad and it will accomplish what i want...

thanks for the help tech_support

edit2: never mind it didn't work out like i was thinking... if you look at the script it has a thing to specify what attribute you apply... i thought _top would force it out of the frame but not out of the window... so much for that.

it could also be that i didnt place the script where i need to... i put it in the html file that seems to contain each messages body and title..
