Keep in mind, that if you follow Woz' suggestion above, you may have problems getting the page indexed by some of the simpler search engines, so make sure that you have lots of text in the <NOFRAMES> area. A question: If you want the whole thing to scroll, is there any particular reason why you want to use a frameset? Wouldn't a table work for you?
Sure, I know that those files are saved in the temporary internet files folder but I can still notice that it takes some extra time to load, with a 56k modem that is. I don't think those with cabel connection etc. would have a problem.
I tried to make one page and then load the rest of the frames in that one but it didn't get a scrollbar even if I inserted scrolling="yes" in that one and scrolling="no" in all of the other frames.
It just seems to me that you would have far more control, easier file management, and the ability to utilize a caching system. At most, try to use a Meta tag to control the pages expiration date ensuring it will reload effectively…
Maybe I’m just ranting, but in terms of SEO, usability and so on. . I think that using a complex frameset in your type of situation is like asking to be banned or buried from any and all directories/engines.
Just MHO kicking in. Good luck though with whatever you do decide.
To load all those subframes into one frame didn't seem to work. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but I don't think so. Is there perhaps another way to do it?
Maybe with a java script or something?
<IFRAME name="name" src="URL" width="x" height="y"></IFRAME>
The scrolling attributes are as per the <FRAME> tag.
You can place this source in a table to achieve the layout you require. They only work in IE5 & NN6 (maybe Opera, dunno) but they are an excellent way to achieve pagelets and I think they'll become quite popular.
