View Full Version : Linking bookmark to text

10-17-2008, 05:39 PM
I have read a lot of the forum, I have done the tutor viedos have link iframe and made bookmark. I am missing something, you see when I link the iframe the info box is always present, so now it takes up space and not plesent to the eye. I have bookmarked the page, just what I want. Only problem is the bookmark opens in a new window not on the same page. If I change code the site opens new page and goes to bottom left corroner. I know it must be simple because I am not getting it. All I want is when I click on the text awindow opens with the text I want, but it does not show till I click on the title text. Just like a drop down but not right under the text. Looking for help please and thank you.

Well I guest I try a little hared to explain:
I have my webpage; and on the web page I want to click on the "we believe" text. After I click on that text I want a text window to open with what we belive. My problem is I open on a new page and not on the same page were I add my bookmark.


I don't know how much beter to explain it.

when i click on the link above it brings me to the home page and on that page it has "We believe" prayer link. when i click on that link it brings me to the We belive prayer so it would appear that the link is working. now you have We believe prayer set up to open a new page with a book mark. where is the page for the We believe prayer. it is not necessary to use a bookmark tool if all you want is to link to the "We believe" prayer - just link to the new page and if you want to open in the same window use the _self option. if you don't have any links on the "We believe" prayer page how will your visitor get back to your home page. i think you should plan out your site a little more.
do not hesitate to contact me if you need some more help here

You are only telling me what I all ready know. I don't want the me believe pray to open in a page of its own, hence no links. in stead I want it to open in a drop down iframe (on the we believe page with all the links) thats apears just below the text. I am very thankfull that you take the time to look I only wish you understood what I am trying to do.
If you look at this site:
when you firs look there is no box under the text then click on the "call to serve" and on the same page just under the text apears the information. than click on the text above the call to serve and new text apears in the same window and on the same page.
hope this explains what I want to do again I want that on my page at:

Hi, are you looking to have this page “webelieve.html” open under the text “What we believe” on your about us page when you click on the blue text link “What we believe”
If so! You need to place an iframe on the page under the “what we believe” text.
Now click on the iframe to get to the properties box & name this iframe if1. Now place a url of the 1st thing you want to see when the about us page opens. (Maybe an image) But this must already be on your server.
Now to make your we believe page show in this iframe after clicking on the link, you will need to highlight the “What we believe” text & add a url page link from the insert hyperlink button. When you have the properties box open for this, you can enter the url http://www.rockcrusherchurch.com/webelieve.html & then type in the target box if1
Now press preview & click on the what we believe link & it should show in the iframe.

What you are doing isn't a bookmark.

Thanks Chris, I agree with your idear. I tried that but the iframe is always visibile, can the ifram be hidden till I click on the we believe text? I done it that way before, than my other choice was to clnoe the first site and have clone open with the iframe. I just thaught it was possible to keep first site page active.

You can't do what you want, there is no such thing as a dropdown iframe.

You have two problems:
1. You had not defined the "what we believe" link target, that's why it opens in a new page
2. You don't have the frame there.

What you ask for is possible but through Ajax, and it is really hard to explain and achieve through BV.

The Iframe can be made invisible: select No border and No scrollbars.

i think i understand your desires now. see if this will work for you. go to
click on the we believe link and you get the new page
if this is what all i did was use the about us page, linked the "We Believe" to a new page and put the we believe prayer in place. this way no iframes or special coding etc....
hope this helps.

Mrmagoo I have all ready did the clone page and add the iframe looks as that is where I have to leave it.
navaldesing idea of removing the boaders was more pleasent to the eye.
Still will BV have a invvisable iframe? one that becomes visable when clicking on text. Either way you help me alot thank you

As i said, this is achieved if the iframe is set NOT to have border or scrollbars.

Usually, to make it completely invisible, the initial page that opens in the iframe should have the same background color as the main page.
