hyperlinks not working...help please

#1 Post by motdaugrnds » 2013-10-23 15:27

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong with this scripting?
I'm trying to turn four (4) Iframes into one Iframe with several hyperlinks on my "index.php" file.

On that page I have a table with 2 columns. I'm only working now with the widest column on the left side. I placed this coding between the <head></head> tags in my index.php file:

<HEAD><TITLE>farm-sales</TITLE><script type="text/javascript">function showPage(typeName) {try {var lstrPageName = '';switch (typeName) {case "antique":lstrPageName = 'antique.html';break;case "finejewelry":lstrPageName = 'FineJewelry.html';break;case "costume":lstrPageName =
'costume.html';break;case "loose":lstrPageName = 'loosestones.html';break;}document.getElementB---('mainFrame').src = lstrPageName;} catch (e) {alert('There was an error while trying to load the page: ' + e);}}</script></HEAD>

Then I placed this coding into the table. (You can see it by "view source" if you want.)

[ <a href="javascript:showPage('antique');">Antique Jewelry</a> | <a href="javascript:showPage('finejewelry');">Fine Jewelry</a> | <a href="javascript:showPage('costume');">Costume Jewelry</a> | <a href="javascript:showPage('loose');">Loose Stones</a> ]<br /><!-- This is coding for the Iframes. !--><iframe src="antique.html" width="100%" height="1200" border="0" scrolling="" id="mainFrame"></iframe><!-- Above is the coding for several Iframes. !-->


I did get the one Iframe; however, the hyperlinks don't work. What did I do wrong?

Reason: You should know already it is not allowed to post such links here, at least not in a clickable format.

Well, now that was great information; however, without knowledge of those "simple links", I'm still pretty much stuck. :(

The problem is, we don't deal with website code at all, only FTP. You may not get much answers here, the better option would be asking in a dedicated HTML/JS forum.

Thank you. I had thought this forum was for "all things html"; and I don't know of any forum where I might get an answer.

This forum only exists so the HTML questions don't clutter the main forums. Additionally, there are chances (albeit low) that someone skilled passes by and answers your question.

Here is the HTML forum's description (most people seem to overlook it):

Edit: I will combine the topics. Edit 2: Done.
