Hi,

I have created my first page with dreamweaver.

There is one frame up the top, going horizontal. Then 3 vertical frames below.

I need to have one scrollbar on the right hand side of the page that allows you to scroll down the page, covering all frames.
But I cant get this to work. I have been looking everywhere, no luck.

Can anyone help me out.

best advice i can give you is drop the frames and never look back.

well make a standard page without trying to emulate frames or is there some really special reason for using frames that makes it still worthwhile considering everything said here http://apptools.com/rants/framesevil.php ?? (post a url if there is).

either use a table(s) (if you haven't got to grips with enough css - cascading style sheets) or preferably use divs to split your page up and make it the way it should be made ;)
