    Need iFrame feedback

    Hi all,

    I'm using a WYSIWYG editor.
    I just made a protype of what I would like
    you can see it HERE. Only the photo link works so far, the links inside the photo page goes to my current website so don't worry about it. also I plan to add button on the left side that would open up in the main page and therefore not use the iframe
    One of the reasons I decided to use iFrame it's because I think the site as a whole would be faster and easier to update. Also I don't really care about having direct links to the iframed pages
    Now I would like to know if it's really BAD to use iFrames that way...does this disturb you in my prototype? how so? I think I've heard it's pretty bad for search engines but I don't really care if my website is top ranked or not so...
    If it's really bad what do you advise me? Also I think I heard PHP might be a solution but...my host does not support it !
    Thanks you

    iFrames are very simple to use. They work almost like a frame does, but can be more customizable.

    You can only view iFrames with newer versions of IE, Opera (sometimes), and newer versions of Netscape.


    Here's a review of Iframes versus text overflowing for scrolling:

    About the only reason given for not using iframes would be browser compatibility... I guess.

    Reverend should be able to chime in more about this issue. He knows a bit on this topic. I am sure some other TZers do as well.
