I just started to create a website and am having problems with the frameset. I have made the framesets but when I publish to my website it only shows the index.html(which is a blank white page right now). Since I am a noobie I probably am doing something stupid. I attached pictures of the screen I see on dreamweaver and the screen I see on my website. Thanks in advance

Yeah, you are using framesets for your website. It is a really bad idea for reasons too numerous to go into right now. Go and research HTML & CSS based layouts and start again.

I tried to do framesets (like this one (http://opensourcetemplates.org/preview/organic-farm-website-template/)) and after I publish it just has the text but no color or layout or anything else. Do you know why. I must be doing something stupid cause I'm new at this.

if you still want that look, and feel equipped with enough understanding, then have a look at

btw you may be better hiring a good designer to make the site for you and budgeting for it properly - unless you can really spare the time and energy to learn it all yourself to a sufficient standard. i don't want to put you off but just help you realise how much work - and fun - it can be ;)

EDIT: that site is only in a frame to show that template whilst keeping the site navigation at the top. if you were going to be 'inspired' by that layout you wouldn't need frames anyway cos it would look like this
