View Full Version : DW CS4 - Rollover Help Please - Due Tonight!

12-09-2009, 01:56 AM
Greetings folks. Being the procrastinator that I am, I have a project due by
midnight which I did not think would be a problem. But now I have a problem. This pertains to roll
overs & wanting to get a page to load in a particular cell.
(When looking at the site you will see where the new page should be loading, instead of opening up a new page.)

Could somebody please advise me what I need to do to make these pages load in the main frame cell instead of a new page?

Again, I'm using CS4.

Sorry but you're probably screwed. You could use an iFrame (some info here: http://www.w3schools.com/TAGS/tag_iframe.asp) but that wouldn't get you very far in my class.

Thanks for the reply DWCourse...... however I was able to do it back when I was using CS3. Here is a link to a previous assignment from a previous semester using CS3: http://www.webrevamps.com/adwclass/a6/index.html

Did they remove the capability to do this with CS4?

Thanks again for the reply.

what are you showing as the target for the link? (blank, parent, etc)?

ok I just realized how I did it in the past. But it wasn't how I would of liked to of done it as described in my first post. I had to make a new page for each rollover link.

It's a shame you can't direct pages to load in individual cells so as to avoid new pages for each link.

Thanks for the help guys!

Hi Motley,

Thats very similar to what i was trying to achieve in my site.

I asked the same question but was advised against the use of iframes. Have a look for my topic and see what was said

You can't direct pages to load in individual cells of a table, that requires frames, and neither method is a good way to go about designing webpages. And creating sites that are all graphics is also a bad practice.

If you're not learning to use CSS and divs to create your page layouts, I hope you didn't pay much for that class.

You can, but web pages aren't really meant to be built that way. Use established standards instead. Like DWcourse mentioned it would probably get you in trouble if you had taken your course elsewhere and it would make it harder for you got get a job doing this imho.

When all that is said; Good luck in your course and ask you teacher next time about Web Standards :)
