Dreamweaver MX Frames Help
I've never used Frames before because I never understood them. I figured that I would be able to understand it, but for some reason it's not working. When I open my frameset it seems to beworking (in Dreamweaver at least), but when I upload my files to my server (using Verizon) they don't show up. I'm not sure if this is something that I'm doing or maybe I"m not uploading my files right.

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks. I really want to get these frames working becuase it would make my site that much better (and that much easier to set up!)

Sure http://mysite.verizon.net/aremes/str...dia/index.html

so far nothing works it tells me that none of my files exist (which is possible because this is also my first time publishing via Dreamweaver).

Oh, this is a simple one

In your index.html file's code, dreamweaver has placed a / before all your file names, causing IE to look in the wrong spot.

eg
Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/frameset.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<frameset rows="65,*,47" cols="*" framespacing="0" frameborder="NO" border="0">
  <frame src="/logo.html" name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize >
  <frameset rows="*" cols="134,*" framespacing="0" frameborder="NO" border="0">
    <frame src="/navbar.html" name="leftFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize>
    <frame src="/indexbody.html" name="mainFrame">
  </frameset>
  <frame src="/webmaster.html" name="bottomFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize>
</frameset>
<noframes><body>

</body></noframes>
</html>
Remove the / in each frames src

eg change:
Code:
frame src="/logo.html"
to
Code:
frame src="logo.html"
do that for all of them, and you're golden

WOOHOO .. Thank you so much!
Is that something that Dreamweaver did on it's own ... or do you think I did something a little dumb!

Dreamweaver did it.

Because a / means to look for the file at the root of the domain.

So your html was searching for indexbody.html at
http://mysite.verizon.net/indexbody.html
instead of
http://mysite.verizon.net/aremes/str...indexbody.html

Ok so I tried to do what you said ... and when I save it ... it automatically reverts to the "/indexbody.html" and it won't let me take the / out!

Ok, where are the dreamweaver experts?

I know HTML, just not that tool, someone should know how to get it to behave. Let me try and find someone...

Thank you so much. It looks like it's taking it from my local directory (if that helps at all) might be the way I set up my Publish settings!

probably...what options do you have in the Publish settings screen?

Or can you take a screenshot of those settings...then I would probably know what to change

it does sound like a publish setting problem... do you have the files saved on your computer the same way they will appear on your site.. with the same folders, directories, etc...

I don't have DreamWeaver here in front of me... so I can't remember all the exact terms it uses... but...
check your Site Settings(??) and see how you have your root web file set up... like Gib said.. send a screenshot of that.
