View Full Version : One for David - Re I Frames

01-25-2009, 11:29 AM
David I was looking at one of your threads and you pointed someone to one of your sites of a photo galery, which looked perfect for what I need do do next. (I can't find this thread now)

So far I know how to use an I Frame as far as

1 x I Frame
1 x Webpage

Result: webpage now appears in I Frame.

Like you've done in your gallery, I want a series of thumbnails that when clicked display a large image in the same I Frame.

I know I have to create an individual page for each larger image which is fine.

My questions are

1) Do I have to set up the Iframe in any particular way to accept the random images? (Because typically it asks for the http:// of a page)

2) How do I set up the links (thumbnails) so each image appears in the I Frame?

Hi Darren

1) populate the Iframe with the link to your 1st photo page (full url in iframe properties box)
this will ensure that you never have a blank Iframe.

2) Each thumbnail now contains/becomes the link (when clicked or MouseOver)to change the photo in the iframe.
So provide a link in each thumbnail, and just under that link, fill in the "target as" box with the name of your Iframe.

All that now remains to be done is to publish each and every one of your larger photos as a seperate page, then Peek and Tweek.

I prefer to get one of the large photos just right and then use that page as a size guide for the rest.

Happy tweeking Darren................lol
