    Hi, i have developed a web site which incorperates frames. I have a problem, sometimes search engines point directly to one of the frames and bot to the main index frame, meaning someone will only get the left frame which will just give them a contents bar. (or the top frame which is just a picture)

    What should i do? Should i create a welcome page so the visitors have to enter?

    Thanks for any help. Paul.

    Good reason to not use frames.

    best way is a script that detects if someone has arrived out of frames and autoreloads to put it into the frame set. various of these scripts are available by doing a google search

    or even better don't use frames

    I think frames are being depreciated in HTML anyway, so future browsers probably won't be able to view them. It's best not to use them from now on, in my opinion.
