HTML gurus...

What's the best way of using frames to hide the URL of the page you're actually looking at.

I'm tryng the way that seems the most obvious, but I get a horizontal scroll bar if my content goes beyond the bottom of the visible screen!!!!

*tears hair out*

Try loading Nic's website in your browser and view source :)

As you know, that uses URL forwarding :)

This might work: <frameset rows="1,100%" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0" cols="*"> <frame name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize src="blank.htm"> <frame name="mainFrame" src="yourpage.htm"> </frameset>

You can stop the scrollbars by either adding 'scrolling="no"' to the <frame> element in the frameset or by setting the style, 'style="overflow: hidden;"' on the <body> element of the actual document you want to hide the URL of.

Of course the user can just right click the document and click "Properties" to see what the URL is, and most likely it will popup in the status bar while it's loading..

If you want to discuss this further I'm on MSN as 'jwhiskers_@hotmail.com'. There are better more secure ways to achieve what you want. :)

Cheerio! :)
