    hi

    on my website, i have a radio running. too stop the user to keep having to reload the radio, i put it in a frame at the top, and the rest of the site in another frame at the bottom.

    the problem is, you cant tell what the address of the bottom one is. i was wondering if there was a way so in the users browser it shows the location of where he/she is.

    this is what im talking about:

    /index.php - normal site
    /indexr.php - site with radio

    how can i make so if /index.php?blah in the browser if its framed it will say /indexr.php?blah

    thanks... hope you understand what im trying to say.

    I don't think you can. Because they never really leave the index page (hence why the url stays the same) when on a framed site.

    I guess you could put the radio in a JavaScript pop-up window. So it's a separate window that doesn't get reloaded when the user changes pages.

    Yeah one of the downsides of phishing sites. They have a bad url in the holder. If they could change that than they would do a lot more business. ;)
