In short, good concept, bad implementation. Google "server side includes", or "php include file" for a Frameless solution to your problem.DaveNF2G said:Frames keep the overall size of the website down because the navigation is in one document instead of hundreds.
You shouldn't! That is, unless you want to be more helpful then a robot that posts links to your homepage. It's irritating just how simple this is to do right, either help someone out with an exact answer (like the frequency they are asking for), give them an exact link to the page on your site where they can find the answer (like I did for d_strong), or simply don't answer. You are always within your rights to just skip the posts that annoy you and move on.DaveNF2G said:Why should I type information in here that I've spent years gathering and maintaining already at my existing website (since 1989 for the web version)? I don't need to do the same work every time somebody fails to use any initiative.
That's funny Dave, because I like to think of it as someone who had the initiative to seek out the most popular site on the net for radio frequencies/discussion and ask it's knowledgeable userbase for help. As opposed to say, searching Google and finding some obscure personal site that may or may not have the right information. Considering the ratio of personal sites out there that have old or incomplete data on them "ask someone at RR first" sounds like a very intelligent solution.DaveNF2G said:My initial posting in this thread, by the way, was not triggered by irritation. I was more bemused than anything. Here is someone posting question after question someplace where the answers are not instead of doing a little searching and finding where the answers are.
Most modern editors (even some free ones) have mass find and replace functionality across multiple files and folders that could be used to update every one of the files on your site with the additional navigation in less then a min. So I'd say that solution is still quite simple. Just try it, it's easier then it looks. If you need help feel free to PM me.DaveNF2G said:Geeze. Go count the number of HTML documents I'd have to edit, then tell me how easy that solution is. I also work for a living.
I think it had something to do with his bad attitude toward d_strong? A rude comment that chased the guy off as a matter of fact. That caused me to actually look at his website where I noticed a major design flaw (It's hard not to notice mistakes from the 90's still being made in 2006). I was even helpful and offered up information on how to fix the problem, numerous times, but I would hardly call that bashing.MB said:so why are you bashing him for it? Why?
