Super frustrating.iframe, firefox, and IE.
Need some help...

 4:45 am on Jan 7, 2009 (gmt 0)

Here is the site I'm building <snip>
It's being a pain. I'll start with the biggest problem, I'm using an iframe. If you go to the page (in either browser) the iframe won't go where it's supposed to, and changes positions when the window is resized. I need it to stay over the white washed box area...

Then in IE, the iframe only shows as white, while in Firefox it is correctly transparent. That's the only problem I see in IE.

In Firefox, the Flash Menu sticks to the left of the screen instead of centering with the rest of the content.

So, basically, I need you to build my site for me :) Not really, but the last time I built a web-site CSS, PHP, etc. were either non-existent or brand new. Help would be much appreciated, thanks.

Do you have to use an iframe?

There are other approaches which may not bring the same problem.

Is it really a css problem?

I don't necessarily have to use the iframe if there is a better way, as far as it being a css problem I don't know. I'm a bit rusty with the whole thing, I'm a newb all over again.

Well, let's start with this ... why do you want to use an iframe?

Hopefully I won't get banned for trying to work around things - it's just much easier for everyone to see what they're working with.

Hi Dillankid

You seem new here (as am I), so I don't think you'll get banned, but I can see that being snipped pretty soon :-P

I built a dynamic site using an iframe to display all of the content with the navigation static in the index page around it. I've got to say, I'm thinking of re-doing it to remove the iframe.

iframes have been around for ages now, but it seems they're like the #*$! child of the control set! They are a nightmare to control the behaviour of between different browsers, and forget backwards compatability! I thought my site looked good in Opera, firefox and IE, then I found a computer with IE6 and I nearly choked!

Your page looks quite good, but I would use standard divs and CSS to position that text. Or an un-editable text box with all the borders etc drawn out for the scrolling? I'm more the type of guys that'll just play with it untill it looks about right, so I can't really say for sure what'll work :-P

Anyway, good luck!

Use fixed width tables.

They render perfectly in almost all browsers and the majority of folks today are on broadband so the big-issue of load time is a moote point.
