Using FP 2003, how do I go about opening up a browser window within my web page? So if a user clicks a link on the site, the result of the click displays in it's own little browser window, so that the user does not leave my site?

Thanks for you help!

RE: Browser window inside my page


Ok, if I get this right, you just want a hyperlink on your website page and when someone clicks on the link, your page remains but a new browser window opens in front?

All you need to do is highlight the text, create a hyperlink, and where it says "Target frame" change this to New Window. Save your page, ftp or upload it etc, refresh and that should be it.

Hope that helps.

Yes, thank you, that kind of did it and perhaps it's a better way to do what i need, however it brought the link up in another browser instance.
I found that if I insert an Inline Frame, I was able to set that frame as the target for the hyperlink. Then when I clicked the hyperlink the site came up in it's own little window right on the page.   

Either way I think should do the trick. I would not have found the inline frame and target info, if not for your reply. So thank you.

Great, glad it helped. Of course if you want to put information from one website into a page on your own, you can do something like this (an example we use to embed live flight departures/arrivals into a website):

CODE

<table>
<td width="50%" valign="top" align="center" height="15" colspan="2">
<iframe width="100%" height="220" src="http://www.flightstats.com/go/weblet?guid=c228b59beca1b817:-5d94a859:111bc637823:352&weblet=status&action=
AirportFlightStatus&airportCode=FAO&airportQueryType=
0&language=English"></iframe>
</td>

</table>
Good luck to you
