View Full Version : Inserting an HTML file in a layer

05-23-2007, 06:56 AM

I am very new to this forum and am only a recent user of Dreamweaver. I have managed to get the rough design of my site and chose to use layers instead of tables.

I have created a number of HTML documents and am now in front of the challenge to link the buttons (or text: About us, Contact us,...) to the corresponding files (About us.html, Contact us.html,...). The problem is that when clicking the "About us" page appears in a new blank browser.:confused: Of course I want it to appear in the central layer that I have desinged in my website.

Any clues how I can do this, if this is possible?:roll:

I hope you can help me out here, Thanks!!

rather than trying to make new "page" appear in a layer just make the link to a new page with target _self.
to do what you want would involve frames or a dynamic database.
make a template with all the repeating elements and just change the content for each page
