Howdy,
I wonder if anyone can help with the following problem I'm having with framed web-forwarding please?

My site is http://www.softladwallpaper.btinternet.co.uk and I have opted for framed web forwarding using my http://www.softladwallpaper.com domain name.
The problem is that when the http://www.softladwallpaper.com link is clicked and the page changes to http://www.softladwallpaper.btinternet. ... nFrame.htm the URL also changes in the address field.
I would like the URL to read http://www.softladwallpaper.com/mainFrame.htm instead.
I have opted for framed web forwarding at the site I obtained the domain name from however it doesn't appear to have had any effect.

Anyone know if there is there any way I can have http://www.softladwallpaper.com stay constant in the address field instead of changing please?
Is it a coding issue or is the supplier of my domain name at fault?

Many thanks in advance.

If I understand what you are saying...

Your domain handler really doesn't work that way. What you are asking to to do,
is mask a url it has no control over.

what you've gotta do is make your index a frame also. that way no matter what
page is loaded into it, it will always have the original url. This will allow you to
avoid using the domain handler altogether.

make sense? :wink:

Many thanks for the reply, it's appreciated.

The impression I got from my domain provider was that they would somehow frame the page needed. I'm fairly new to site building so I'll have to go away and ponder. I can feel the headache coming on already.... :D
