This is my first post on here and I'd just like to say what a brilliant Forum.....so much information.

My question is this, I'm creating a website with all page at a fixed size 800 x 600 each page will look the same except it will be different colours.

The lower right hand side of each page will be text discribing different parts of the business i.e. Production, Projects, CAD Design and so on, some of the pages will have more text than others but I don't want the page size or layout to change, I want two arrows to the right of the text i.e. Up & Down and I want the text to scroll up and down but not the rest of the page.

I hope this makes sense!

My skills are very basic Frontpage and some simple HTML, I have used a bit of ASP but only by the copy paste method.

Thanks in Advance

Woody

Welcome [webmasterworld.com] to WebmasterWorld, woody!

This sounds like a job for an iFrame. There are many online resources that will explain iFrame usage for you, a simple web search will do the job.

An iFrame is basically another html page embedded in a document, which you can allow to scroll within it's width and height parameters. It has reasonably good cross-browser support, although for full support you can use an iLayer hack for old Netscape browsers - again a search will do the job.

A few WebmasterWorld discussions on iFrames:

[webmasterworld.com...] (tedster show the iLayer workaround here).

Thanks for the quick reply I'll give it a try. I was looking for something abit slicker i.e. with out the scroll bar. Just a couple of arrows which when you hover over scroll the text.

There is another way of doing this using dHTML and JavaScript. A search for scrollable layers will give you a few results.

This will allow you to get the effect you want with just two arrows and the text scrolling.
