Hi Everyone,

This will be my first post to greetings to the users of this forum!


What I would really need your help with is basically on what type of coding I need to use in order to update only the "WHITE" portion of the following web site: www.global-uniforms.com , what I mean by that is I have about 70 items I would like to display with the help of a previous and next button. Two items will be displayed at one time...

Unfortunately I'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to HTML or JAVA, I was told a JAVA script or frames could be used...(I'm not too interested in scroll bars, don't find them too nice..)

Thx
Lat

Your latter suggestion seems more sensible. This is what iframes (inline frames) are for. The syntax:

<iframe src="external_page.html">
P.S. please read the signature.

I can live with that, does that mean every 2 items will be a new sub-page? Also, how can I format (Size) or Locate the frame right over that white spot I mentionned earlier?

One last questions, how can I "Link" the next and previous buttons to new sub pages like you mentionnes?

Thx again

Also, how can I format (Size) or Locate the frame right over that white spot I mentionned earlier?width and height attributes are supported, although CSS is preferred.

I can live with that, does that mean every 2 items will be a new sub-page?A new page, in fact. You can link them together like a normal site, but it will appear in the iframe instead of a browser window.
