Target Page?


I'm pretty new to web development.

I've created a site which uses a Microsoft Border for the top and bottom. Top holds the navigation menu for the site.

I then used the "include page" component to add the left and right borders.

My problem is that I only want the left and right pages to load once. Not to reload the left and right pages everytime I change the page using the top border navigation bar. I have target="_default" for hyperlinks.

When I click a link in the main page which has a target="_self" the left and right pages do not reload.

How can I set the target in the top border navigation bar hyperlinks to behave like a link in the main page?

This may be a bit confusing!



RE: Target Page?

Sorry Guys

I think I may have just realised something, I am actually using an IFrame in the main page, when the left and right pages don't get reloaded.

I think I can sort it out now.
