Lesson 6. Working with Frames > Creating targeted links

Creating targeted links

Although your frames can be used simply to display these three Web pages, they are much more powerful when used to navigate and view your entire site. You'll enable a viewer to change the content of the Main frame by using targeted links from the Navigation (contents) pane to other pages.

1.
In the site window, open Nav.html.

2.
Select the word "Thorax" in the Nav.html file.

3.
In the Text Inspector, click the New Link button (), and then use the Point and Shoot button to create a link to Thorax.html.

This creates a link between the two pages. But which frame will it appear in? You want it to appear in the Main frame, so you must select that frame as the target.

4.
In the Text Inspector, choose Main from the Target pop-up menu.


Selecting Main frame as target


Now, when a visitor clicks on this link in the Contents, Thorax.html will replace Head.html in the Main frame.
