Website forwarding problem.

  phil 18:41 24 Apr 2003

I've just made up a small site for a friend and am having a few problems with forwarding.

The site is a simple 3 page affair in a frameset.

He has a name, click here bought through and he wants it to point to his free space at Blueyonder.
When I set it for forwarding through 'frames masking' it shows up in the address bar with his domain name but loses my frameset.

ie. When it first comes up the full site is there but when you click to another page it loses the frame, even the home button does this.

If I set it for forwarding through 'non-frames masking' the site address comes up as click here but the site then works perfectly.

So a) why am I losing the frameset when I forward it through 'frame masking' and
b) why does it work perfectly in 'non-frames masking' but loses it's domain name.

Normally that is set up by the company you buy the name through. Look on their site (could be in the members only area) for Web Forwarding and normally you just login, specifiy which website you want to forward to and it will keep the purchased domain name in the address bar while showing the webiste located in the personal webspace:

i.e., keep www. in the address bar while showing the visitor the site located in www.

I hope this helps

The site you looked at before was set as 'Non-framed web-forwarding'

In this you get to see the site as it should look but without the name being masked.

I have now changed it to 'Framed web-forwarding'
and if you take a look now you'll see that the way it works has all changed.
Click a button to see.

It does keep the proper name in the address bar though.
