If I am understanding you correctly you are going to force your subscribers to place a link on their page that will load your licensed page into an IFRAME? No offense, but that is poor design. Imagine how much advertisment dollars would be lost if the user had to click a link to load X websites advertisment's.

Same thing here, unless I am specifically going to Bob's site to view your licensed page, I am not going to take the time to load the page into the Iframe.

I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.

Yes, you have understood correctly - that is exactly what I am going to do. However, you are now off-topic, because the issue you raise is totally connected to the particular application that requires the technique. As I said in my original post, I am not going to discuss the application (purpose). What I suggested above is most certainly not poor design within the context of the purpose I require.

P.S. Some web sites contain a "main menu" of links on a page, with each link loading different content into a single iframe within that page. My link will be, in essence, similar in function to one of the menu links. From a design point of view, it's fine (aside from the usual considerations regarding SEO, bookmarking etc. which won't be an issue for my application.)

Agreed, but from my stand point if i am paying XYZ company for XYZ service I want that service to be there all the time regardless or not if the user clicks on X button. Maybe its just me from doing this years upon years, just my 2 cents =]

I don't follow your logic. Your own web site does not have every page "there all the time" without requiring the visitor to click links to them. Ths issue is completely purpose-dependent, so it is impossible to generalise about what is appropriate or not. In *this case*, doing what I describe is fine.

For the record, the following code snippet...

----------------------------------
<iframe name="theFrame" width=300 height=300></iframe>
<script language="javascript">document.all["theFrame"].src="xxx.asp"</script>
----------------------------------

...will result in the iframe page immediately appearing (without requiring a user-click) AND the loaded page will show the top-level page (the one that contains the iframe) as its referer.

lol...oops!

On a simple test, looks like this also does the same anyway...

<iframe name="theFrame" width=300 height=300 src="xxx.asp"></iframe>

Thanks for the help of your previous posts, but it looks like you have forgotten that this forum is used by others who want to look up answers to similar questions. That is why I have contributed what I have discovered. The idea of entering into a "pissing contest" (whatever that is, and I don't appreciate the vulgarity) never entered my head. From the tone of your last post, I do get the impression that you are now being egotistic rather than helpful. Please do keep your posts courteous for the benefit of all. Thanks.

Of my 676 posts 99.9% of them are helpful and to the point; I am not discounting your method and/or ideology in how you are developing/deploying your application I was merely stating that it is not how I would deploy an application; thats the beauty of programming though, right? How you may do something is not necessarily how I may do it and vice versa.

As far as being an egotist, I am the farthest thing from and I am not quite sure how you gathered as such but so be it.
