Create the Hyperlink

  1. In FrontPage 2003, select the text where you want to create the hyperlink, and then click Hyperlink on the
    Insert menu.

  2. In the Insert Hyperlink dialog box, click to select the page that you want to link to.

    The page name appears in the Address box.

  3. Click Target Frame, select an item in the
    Common targets box, or click one of the rectangles in the graphic, and then click OK.

  4. Click OK to close the Insert Hyperlink dialog box.

Modify Hyperlink Properties

  1. Click the Code (Show Code View) tab.

  2. Locate the hyperlink tag that you created in the "Create the Hyperlink" section earlier in this article, for example:

    <a target="rtop" href="SomePage.htm">SomePage</a>
  3. Insert the following onClick attribute between .htm" and > in the anchor tag:

    onClick="parent.frames[n].location.href='URL';"

    where n indicates the number of the frame where you want the resource to appear and URLis the Uniform Resource Locator of the page that you want to appear in that frame, for example:

    <a target="rtop" href="SomePage.htm" onClick="parent.frames[2]
    .location.href='AnotherPage.htm';">SomePage</a>

    Note that because frame numbers start at zero, parent.frames[2] indicates the third frame in a collection.

    Note You may receive an error message if you copy the examples directly from this article and paste them into FrontPage 2003. The angle brackets (< and >) may appear as escaped HTML code (< and &gt). To work around this behavior, paste the script into a blank Notepad document, and then copy it from Notepad before you paste it into FrontPage 2003.

  4. On the File menu, click
    Save.
