    Arrow Header frame on my portfolio page

    Hi all,

    Sorry to be one of those guys that just signs up and straight asks a question but I have spent 2 days Googling this and trying various things without success.

    I'm trying to create a portfolio type page for my companies website. I would like to link through to the websites in the portfolio but still have a navigation panel along the top similar to these 2 examples:

    Code:
    http://www.shopify.com/examples/browse
    Code:
    http://themeforest.net/item/paradise-premium-wp-theme/full_screen_preview/155505
    I prefer the Shopify example as I like the idea of having a signup/pricing button as well as navigation.

    Any help would be HUGELY appreciated.

    Many thanks

    That's a fairly standard use of frames. Unlike iframes, which are inline frames-- elements on your page like text or an image, frames are setup using a frameset which is a special kind of HTML page that essentially splits up the page into a rectangular grid and then loads specified pages into each rectangle within the grid. This way, you load your navigation page into the top frame (a very short frame/page, but it's "complete" within itself) then this page determines what URL is loaded in the other frame by the dropdown menu. You can do this using a serverside language like PHP or you could also use Javascript (for those visitors who support Javascript-- most but not all).
