Lesson 9. Creating Frames > Creating Noframes Content

Creating Noframes Content

In Dreamweaver, you can create content that will be ignored by frames-capable browsers and displayed in older and text-based browsers or in other browsers that do not support frames. The NoFrames content you create is placed in the frameset file. When a browser that doesn't support frames loads the frameset file, the browser displays only the NoFrames content.

1.
Select the frameset.

This is the page the browser will load initially, so the NoFrames content will be specified here.

2.
Choose Modify > Frameset > Edit NoFrames Content.

The document window changes to display the NoFrames page, and the words “NoFrames Content” appear at the top.

3.
Create the NoFrames content in the document window.

Create alternative content of your choice in this document. This content can contain elements from a standard html page and will be enclosed between the <noframes> and </noframes> tags. Only browsers that do not support frames will see this content. The content should be relatively simple—browsers that do not support frames are likely to not support JavaScript, image maps, and other types of complex elements. Some Web sites use NoFrames content to provide simple alternative pages or to direct users to a text-based version of the Web site; other sites use NoFrames content to display a message to users that the site is only available to frames-capable browsers.

4.
Choose Modify > Frameset > Edit NoFrames.

The document window changes to hide the NoFrames content and returns to the normal view of the frameset document.
