    Help with Frames
    I need some help with regards to framing a site. I have seen some sites using a frame to hide the fact that they are on another website. I'd like to still have my url when they click on a link on my website. They would still see a header of my site 'framed' and the other website below the frame.
    Anyone know the code for this? Thanks.

    The first one to give you the code for that here, is not helping you.

    But I might be wrong.

    It all depends on why you need to hide the fact that they (your visitors) are on another website.

    Good Luck.

    Frames are evil, I hate frames. Surfers hate frames, search engines hate frames.

    Haven't gotten to say that in a while!

    Of course, and there are lots of problems with that. And google doesn't want to server you spiderable content.....

    Your point?

    Content in a framed page that actually resides on another site will not be included as part of the content on your site. Search engines can easily see the frameset link to the other domain.

    Frames are a bad idea. Most of the search engines advise you to avoid using frames because they generally have trouble indexing these sites. You might want to rethink this one.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.

    I saw Frames in the subject here and just wanted to contribute to the anti-frame sentiment that I expected to see. Frames are useless as far as I'm concerned. Maybe they can be used in some sort of tool like Wordtracker, but they aren't good for public websites. Search engines don't index them well, so by using them you'll be shooting yourself in the foot. Ideally you want to open yourself up to getting free traffic and frames will prevent that.
