Link not opening in frames on using Back button

3 New Member
Hi,

I am a page having a menu and a few frames life below.
The links in menu open in F3 frame. I also have back/forward buttons in F1 frame.
_______________ _________
____________F1_ ________|
| F2 |.............. ............... ... |
| .... |.............. ............... ... |
| M | .............F3 ............... |
| E | ............... ............... .|
| N |.............. ............... .. |
| U |.............. ............... .. |
_______________ ________

The menu links open correctly in the F3 frame as expected. The back button works correctly BUT once the BACK button is used, all the link in the menu start opening in new window. They won't open in the frame F3.

Menu is a Dhtml menu (tagert=F3)
Back button is a History.back( ) function.

Does anyone have any clue what could be wrong?

Thank you,
Swap

The main problem is that a frameset page is open. All pages viewed through the frameset is recorded by the history as a single page. If you use the history.back() function, the browser will try to display the page viewed before the frameset.

My advice will be to use a static link. You might not be able to go to the page previously viewed if more than one page have a link to the page viewed.

Glad to be able to help

That's not quite true. Try it.

It could be possible that F3 is not defined anymore so it spawns a new window.

Below are more details about the page....

Back and Froward are 2 buttons in an html page appearing in frame F1 (F1.htm).
<input type="button" onClick="parent .F3.history.bac k(); value="Back">

F3 is the frame targetted in the links in the Menu.

Below is the main page _______________ _______________ __

[HTML]<frameset id="TopFrame" rows=67,* >
<frame src="F1.htm" name="top" scrolling=no>

Why do you have so many nested framesets?

I am not very good at html. What I am trying to do is make the page look good for various resolutions. Most of the frames just display images.

You shouldn't need to nest framesets just for layout, but anyway, here's a link that should prove useful.

I am working with 2 frames, Left and Right and the main code is in the left frame, which has been attached. Can someone please help me with this code. I am new to JavaScript and can't figure it out. What needs to happen is this: On the left frame you should have a series of buttons, which when pushed makes things happen on the right frame.

OK. After much playing around, I managed to get my frame page this far.. see code below. BUT...there are still errors with it, and what I would like to have happened is this: 1) On the Left Frame (File LeftEx8_2.html) a series of buttons, which when clicked prompt the user to enter information for background color, text color, link color, title and some text.
