Some web pages are actually composed of two or three individual web pages, arranged in 'frames'. You might often come across a 'navigation frame', providing links to key areas of a site, that will remain on screen as you browse the site of which it is a part. Some apparently framed sites actually create the impression by using tables instead of frames.
Something you'll find on Internet Web sites that are long on style and short on content. I ( Charlie) prefer to waste bandwidth on useful things like hyperlinks to cute sneakers, graphics, and even text in decorative fonts.
An HTML coding for making a website appear to have more than one windows within one browser. Most search engines do not like these types of sites because there is no content on the index page of the site. Many search engines read this as a site without value. If you are going to use a frames site, you need to remember to use a no frames tag.
In creating a Web site, frames is the use of multiple, independently controllable sections on a Web presentation. This effect is achieved by building each section as a separate HTML file and having one master HTML file identify all of the sections. Last Reviewed: 2003-04-19
An HTML tag construct for making a website appear to have multiple windows within one browser. A frame with links can remain static while clicks cause a different frame to be updated. Most serious websites stay away from frame usage because of browser compatibility problems and search engine problems. Most search engines will not index a framed site.
frames divide a web page into different areas, each of which can be updated independently of the others. A typical use of frames is to provide a navigation bar that does not vary in one frame, while presenting the desired content in another.
Web design technique which divides the screen into multiple windows, each window displaying a different page. Frames can be troublesome in certain situations, because a framed page is actually 2 or more pages together, not just one. Bookmarking and search engine visibility are a couple problems for frames.
A means of coding a web page so that it is divided into 2 or more independent parts. Visually it is not always clear how many frames a web page contains, but it is important for a screen reader to be able to distinguish between them.
The ability to divide up a browser window into multiple windows, which scroll separately. This is controlled by the HTML from the server. Traditionally frames have a number of serious usability problems, including lack of bookmarking and user navigation.
An HTML feature, supported by Netscape Navigator 2.0 and above, Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 and above, and other similarly enhanced browsers, that allows a browser window to be divided into sections, each of which displays a separate HTML page.
Two or more separate HTML documents may be combined within a single web browser screen. By using multiple windows (or sub windows) web pages may be generated with many interacting documents. Unfortunately, many search engines experience problems with framed web sites and as a result may not be indexed correctly. Search engines can only read text and will often index only the part of a framed site within the "noframes" section. It is important to make sure this section has the most relevant text specifically for indexing purposes. If your site uses frames, consider creating a page that has the same content but is not separated into frames. This page can be submitted to the search engines for indexing.
These enable the separation of a browser window into separate areas (frames). Each frame can display content in a self-contained page. It is a useful feature for separating navigation menus from content. However, many search engines still have problems correctly indexing sites which use frames.
A feature supported by the latest versions of web browsers than enables the web author to divide the browser display area into two or more sections (frames). The contents of multiple frames are displayed as different web pages and may be opened individually in a new browser window.
When web pages are divided in to multiple windows, each window is called as a frame. Each window or frame contains a separate page. When one window is scrolled, others can remain fixed for other purposes.
In HTML, providing the ability to break a Web page into multiple, separately scrollable areas. Frames present a number of problems in terms of accessibility, printing and bookmarking. Because of these problems, the use of frames is discouraged by our firm.
Introduced by Netscape for the 2.0 version of its browser and now part of HTML specifications. Each frame can display a separate HTML document, allowing content and navigational elements on a web page to be displayed concurrently.
when separate web pages are combined into one, each potentially with its own scrollbar. You know you're on a framed website when part of the page scrolls while the rest of the page stays in place. Frames frustrate people because much of the time when the person tries to bookmark a specific page, it doesn't actually work but instead bookmarks the "frameset" page which is typically the home page. Search engines don't like frames. A framed web site is at a severe disadvantage compared to non-framed sites in terms of search engine marketing. Most search engines support frames, but only, as Google says in its FAQ section, "to the extent that [we] can." Searchers clicking through to a framed page from search results sometimes end up on an orphaned page. [ edit
A format for displaying two different pages simultaneously in a web browser. For example, a menu may remain constantly on the left or top of a web site, while a user clicks through multiple pages. Frames were popular in the early days of the web, and are still useful in limited instances. In general, however frames are now discouraged for a variety of reasons related to accessibility and navigation. Graphical User Interface A display that includes a variety of text, colors, and graphics. The original IBM PCs would only display text characters in a linear format down the screen. Since the advent of the original Macintosh and the mouse, users were freed from this text-only restraint. Interfaces today often rely on such graphic items as icons, graphical menus and the mouse or other method to move a pointer around the display.
This term has many different uses but by far the most frequently used is in relation to web pages where the web page being viewed has a number of independent boxes or frames. A common application of this is with a search engine where in the left-hand frame you enter the information you want to be searched & the results of this search are presented back in the right-hand frame. Frames hurt search engine exposure due to the complexity of the programming involved. Most major search engines can index pages in frames. However, they will index each frame as a separate page, causing bits and pieces of the page to show up separately in the index.
A method of dividing a browser window into multiple pages, which can be scrolled and navigated independently. The idea is outdated and has serious drawbacks in relation to search engines and bookmarking.
Frames are a technology that allow Web designers to break the browser window into several smaller windows, each of which can load different pages. This means Web designers can create navigation bars and ads that stay with you as you click through a site or scroll down a page.
Web browser feature that enables a Web page to be displayed in a separate scrollable window on screen. Older browsers do not support the frames feature, and many Web sites have a frames and non-frames version of the site to accomodate them.
An extension to HTML developed by Netscape that allows the browser to be divided into discrete rectangular spaces, each of which contains separate files. Links in one frame can target the resulting file to another frame.
An extension to HTML from Netscape. Frame extensions enable web page designers to split their clients' browser windows into multiple, independently scrollable panels, with separate documents in each panel. On framed web sites, hyperlinks in one frame can be programmed to update the content of adjacent frames, making it possible for web programmers to incorporate intuitive, visually pleasing navigation interfaces into their web sites. Frame extensions also make it possible to launch multiple browser windows and to control the contents of each window through hyperlinks embedded in other windows. Although Netscape's frame extensions haven't been officially accepted by the WWW consortium as a standard part of HTML, their widespread use throughout the Web community has made them a de facto standard.
A feature available on the World Wide Web that presents text, links, graphics, and other media in separate portions of the browser display. Some sections remain unchanging, while others serve as an exhibit of linked documents.
HTML frames allow authors to present documents in multiple views, which may be independent windows or subwindows. Multiple views offer designers a way to keep certain information visible, while other views are scrolled or replaced. For example, within the same window, one frame might display a static banner, a second a navigation menu, and a third the main document that can be scrolled through or replaced by navigating in the second frame. If the user agent can't display frames or is configured not to, it will render the contents of the noframes element.
Today's Web browsers allow site builders to divide the browser window into two or more sections called frames. Each frame is filled with a distinct Web page, but the appearance is of one cohesive page. Frames can be troublesome if you are trying to bookmark or print a certain chunk of data
A way to allow more than one HTML document, or multiple windows, to appear within the same web browser screen. This makes site navigation easier for users, but makes tracking more difficult for spiders.
The simultaneous display of several HTML files on a Web page. A Web page that has frames normally will display a navigational tool bar that remains constant through an entire site in one section of the page and content in another section.
In web design, providing the ability to break a web page into multiple, separately scrollable areas are known as frames. Because some search engines cannot follow links in a framed web site care must be taken in using this functionality.
Frames allow different web-pages to appear in different parts of the browser window. They are useful for keeping a menu displayed in one frame at all times, while other web-pages are displayed in another frame. They are also useful for playing background music, no matter which web-page a person is looking at within your web-site.
A technique used in web site design to divide the page into multiple windows called frames. Each frame contains a separate web page. Benefits of frames are that one part of a web page can be scrolled or changed while other parts remain fixed for such purposes as keeping a menu in view all the time. Disadvantages are that users cannot easily bookmark your site and sites with frames are at a disadvantage with search engines.
The new frames feature of Netscape Navigator 2.0 is a sophisticated page-presentation capability that enables the display of multiple, independently scrollable frames on a single screen, each with its own distinct URL. Frames can point to different URLs as well as be targeted by other URLs - all within the same screen. Developers can now incorporate banners, ledges, tables of contents, and display panels into their designs, allowing users to scroll through multiple sites simultaneously, submit database queries in one frame and receive back instant results in another and even freeze regions of the screen in place while the user scrolls through information on a page.
Aframe is a bordered area that acts as an independent browser window. There can be a number of frames within the same page, and they can be separately scrolled, linked, and viewed. Sometimes a frame can be used to view an entirely different Website without leaving the original site that contains the frame. To view a page that has frames, one must use a WWW browser that supports frames
a Web site design method whereby two (or more) Web pages are viewed as one page divided into distinct areas or frames. Usually one frame remains static while the other changes. Often used as a Web site navigation method.
A method of coding a Web page to divide the layout into two or more independent parts. Technically, it is the simultaneous loading of two or more Web pages within the same browser screen. For certain kinds of content frames are an excellent way to organize information on a Web site.
Building a site with frames will make the site seem to have multiple windows within one browser by using a certain HTML format. It is recommended that frames are not used in the design of a site because they can cause browser compatibility problems and because many search engines can not index a site designed in frames.
A system for dividing a website into multiple pages. Usually, selecting from a menu in one frame shows the contents of the selection in another frame. The system was developed to keep certain sections a site permanently visible and reduce the amount of time required to download new pages. The speed of modern internet connections and the negative problems with identifying frame-based sites in search engines has rendered the use of frames as virtually obsolete.
Frames are a way of dividing a web browser window into two or more smaller windows, each displaying different HTML content. Frames have the advantage of allowing some parts of a web page to remain stationary while other parts can be scrolled. They do however have several disadvantages, as they are not supported by all web browser software, they can be confusing for search engines and they can be too complicated for some users (especially those using text only browsers such as the many users with disabilities).
Frames divide a web browser's display into two or more separate areas which can be scolled independently, effectively allowing two or more web pages to appear on the screen at the same time. Most commonly used for navigational purposes.
Frames divide a web page into sections allowing for only home page data to be read by search engines. This type of structure works as a barrier between the search engine spiders and the content within a site.
Multiple HTML sources (pages) that are displayed in the same page-view by a browser. The visitor will see a single page displayed that can contain top, bottom, left, right, and middle sections (the frames). Search engine spiders generally do not like frames.
A web page uses frames when it's divided into two or more parts. Clicking on a link in the smaller part (usually a column on the left) will change what's displayed in the larger part. Usually there are two sets of vertical scroll bars, one at the right of each frame.
This technique can allow the display of more than one page on a user's screen at the same time and is often used to keep a common directory or index to the site on the screen throughout. Not considered to be a good web design option for an number of reasons.[Go Back] freeware Non-copyright software made available free for public use by the author.[Go Back
A technique for combining separate HTML documents within a single web browser screen. A framed web site might cause problems for search engines, and may not be indexed correctly, yet some search engines do support framed pages.
This is the HTML technique that creates a fixed element to a web page, usually containing navigation buttons for the website that will be constantly visible. Frames were a popular technique several years ago but can cause problems for search engine optimisation as they restrict the ability of some crawlers to index the site. However, frames are not as big an obstacle as some people will make out and may also offer advantages when optimising a website. | Free Website Assessment
An HTML technique used to make a more effective web pages, with multiple windows or sub windows. A framed web sites could cause problems for search engines, and may not be indexed correctly on most search engines. Search engines will usually index just the part within the NOFRAMES section, so this section should include the text relevant to the thematic of the web page. In general, they should be avoided if possible.
A technique used in Web pages that allows one "window" on the screen to be scrolled or changed, while the surrounding "frame" remains fixed. Frames enable items such as banner heads, logos, and menus to remain in view all the time. Some older browser versions do not support frames.
(website design) a technique for dividing up a window displaying a web page so that separate areas can scroll independently and load new pages independently. Frames are useful when something needs to be on-screen all the time, such as navigation bars or advertising, and may sometimes improve download time. However, generally frames are not a recommended technique in website design for a large number of reasons. Typically they result in user confusion from a number of interface problems with navigation, bookmarking, printing, and so forth.
frames divide the web browser window into several separate areas, each of which contains their own web page. For example, you may come to a site that has a double layout wherein one frame provides the navigation elements of the page (say, on the left side area) and the other frame provides the web page content. Some browsers do not support frames and cannot read them. Sometimes, you will see if you do a search on Google - "this page uses frames but your browser does not support them". When you do click on the web page, you can still see the page.
Some sites you visit will want to show you more than one page at once. They solve this problem by putting their pages in frames, or different sections of the screen. When you use frames, you can keep one part of the screen open all the time while you look at other things in the other part. An example would be a page about animals that lists mammals in one frame. When you click on "deer" information shows up in the other section of the page while the list of mammals remains the same.
A way of dividing up a web page so that different content can displayed in sections simultaneously. This page uses frames; a side bar at the left, a top frame and the main content frame that is displaying this document.
A formatting device that allows a Web page to be viewed in separate, independently scrollable windows. Since each houses its own HTML document, frames allow multiple documents to be viewed within a single browser window. (NOTE: Frames are not supported by older browsers.)
A Web browser feature that divides the Web page into sections. Each frame's contents come from a different Web page. Some search engines cannot read content frames. These search engines require special SEO strategies to gain search positions.
The sections into which your computer screen can be divided so that you can do different things in each section. A common use is to put the navigation in a static frame at the top and/or side of the content.
multiple, independent sections used to create a single Web page. Each frame is built as a separate HTML file but with one "master" file to control the placement of each section. When a user requests a page with frames, several files will be displayed as panes. Sites using frames report one page request with several panes as multiple page requests. IAB ad campaign measurement guidelines call for the counting of one file per frame set as a page impression.
An HTML technique for combining two or more separate HTML documents within a single web browser screen. A web site using frames often causes great problems for search engines, and may not be spidered and indexed correctly.
A feature supported by most modern web browsers enabling the author to divide the browser display area into two or more sections known as frames. The frame contents are delivered from a different webpage. Frames provide speed and consistency in designing webpages, as items such as navigation bars and header bars can be repeated on each page, but tey are the bane of web promoters as they are supported unevenly by seaarch engine browsers, anf their meta content is often not recorded.
Frames allow the HTML designer to break up the browser's viewing area into two or more discrete panes, each of which can have its own scrollable content. Additionally, you can make links target a particular frame in the browser, so a list of links in its own frame could be made to display their content in a different "display" frame.
Coding that allows multiple HTML documents to be presented as independent windows (or sub-windows) within one main browser window. This allows the presentation of two or more documents at the same time.
An HTML tag construct that allows designers to display two or more web pages simultaneously. The general perception is that frames can greatly improve site navigation, but they are browser -dependant and not search engine friendly. Most search engines do not index framed pages correctly. For a more detailed look at the problems with frames and possible solutions, please refer to the Search Engine Yearbook .
A feature supported by most modern Web browsers than enables the Web author to divide the browser display area into two or more sections (frames). The contents of each frame are taken from a different Web page. Frames provide great flexibility in designing Web pages, but many designers avoid them because they are supported unevenly by current Browsers. Frames make it near impossible for Search Engines to accuratley link toWeb pages. Frame-based web sites are also not Accessible by impaired users.
'Frames' are pages that are displayed within an HTML page. Frames behave like a separate window with their own menus, scroll bars, and content. Frames let you keep your logo and menu for example fixed on the screen while simultaneously displaying another page, even somebody else's website, inside your web site.
A format for web documents that divides the screen into segments, each with a scroll bar as if it were as "window" within the window. Usually, selecting a category of documents in one frame shows the contents of the category in another frame. To go BACK in a frame, position the cursor in the frame and press the right mouse button, and select "Back in frame" (or Forward). You can adjust frame dimensions by positioning the cursor over the border between frames and dragging the border up/down or right/left holding the mouse button down over the border. (4/99)
A format for web documents that divides the screen into areas that can be formatted and controlled independently. Often, one frame is used to select a category while another frame shows the contents of that category.
A Web page layout technique which divides the page into several smaller pages on one screen. Not all Web browsers support frames. In modern web site design, frames are generally considered poor design and are no longer frequently used.
Invented by Netscape, frames break a Web page into separate pieces. Frames have a lot of problems. For one thing, if a page is broken up into three frames, there are actually four HTML documents - one for each of the pages, and one made up of directions to the browser on how to lay them out. Some browsers are incompatible with frames - they can't make head or tail of the directions. Some search engines wouldn't even be able to index the site with their spiders. So, if you want frames on your pages, also include a NOFRAMES tag. This tag will provide text and graphics that let browsers and spiders that can't read the frames bypass them.
HTML technique allowing a web page to be seen on single browser screen, this could cause problems with search engine crawlers where they find it difficult to index properly. Solution to this problem is create a tag and link to it from a sitemap.
Frames are a technique used in web pages to divide the page into multiple windows, where each window is called a frame and can contain its own separate page. The advantage of frames is that one window can be scrolled or changed while other windows remain fixed for such purposes as keeping a menu in view all the time. The disadvantage is that not all browsers support them.
A technical feature that enables webdesigners to divide a browser window into several smaller, scrollable windows, each of which can load different HTML pages. Many webdesign experts advise against the use of frames, since they make for cluttered design and cannot be searched by some engines.
A way to divide the window in a browser into any number of subwindows. Each subwindow may contain a unique HTML document and each document may have links "targeting" different subwindows for displaying relative information.
A feature of HTML that allows several different pages to be displayed in one window at the same time. Lots of web sites use frames to keep a standard scroll bar on screen at all times as you move around the web site.
A term used to describe a viewing and layout style of a World Wide Web site; it refers to the simultaneous loading of 2 or more Web pages at the same time within the same screen. Originally developed by Netscape and implemented in their Navigator 2.0 browser today many other popular Web browsers support this feature. With frames you often have one frame acting as a 'control frame' while the other is the 'target frame' - the results of actions in the control frame display in the target frame.
The use of multiple, independently controllable sections on a web page. This effect is achieved by building each section as a separate HTML file and having one "master" HTML file identify all of the sections. When a user requests a web page that uses frames, the address requested is actually that of the "master" file that defines the frames; the result of the request is that multiple HTML files are returned, one for each visual section. Links in one frame can request another file that will appear in another (or the same) frame. A typical use of frames is to have a navigation menu displayed in one frame and the selected (linked to) files in another frame.
A website design technique used to split the screen into two or more sections. Website's designed using frames are notoriously difficult to promote to search engines without effective website Optimisation work.

In HTML, providing the ability to break a web page into multiple, separately scrollable areas. Because some search engines cannot follow links in a framed web site, a good web designer will contain text in a NOFRAMES-tag and provide a link for search engines to index your site.
An extension to HTML invented by Netscape. Frames enable a web designer to break the main window of the browser into seperate panes or frames that can all be controlled seperately by the web designer. Although frames can be very useful, particulary for holding menus and controls, they can also be very confusing. For example, there is only one location bar in a browser, but if there are three web pages being displayed, what location should it show? It shows the location of the frameset, which defines the frames. Search engines don't handle well with framed web sites.
A method of presenting consistent navigation information on your site in a way that annoys visitors by breaking printing facilities, and stuffing up the back button on older browsers. Divides computer screen into multiple windows in a way that wastes most of your display space.
An HTML technique allowing web site designers to display two or more pages in the same browser window. Many search engines do not index framed web pages properly - they only index the text present in the NOFRAMES tag. Unless a web page which uses frames contains relevant content in the NOFRAMES tag, it is unlikely to get a high ranking in those search engines.
Frames is the HTML extension, originally developed by Netscape to divide a page up into several subâ€“pages. A web page made up of frames is actaully a series of separate files/pages that when viewed together form a complete web page. Due to problems with bookmarking framed pages and accessibility problems, frames pages are generally considered to be "A Bad Thing" and should generally be avoided.
Frames provide the ability to break web pages into multiple sections which allows each section to be scrollable. Because of the Search Engines inability to follow within frames many designers will utilize the NOFRAMES-tag and provide a link for the Search Engines to follow.
Some sites have pages that are made up of multiple HTML pages. Typically the navigation will be on one page and the content on another. You can tell if you scroll down the page and the navigation remains static. Frames are bad for a sites search engine promotion
The use of multiple, independent sections to create a single Web page. Each frame is built as a separate HTML file but with one "master' file to identify each section. When a user requests a page with frames, several pages will be displayed as panes. Sites using frames may report one page request with several panes as multiple page requests. Most audit firms count only the master HTML page request and therefore can accurately report the page requests.
Modern browsers support an arrangement of web pages called "frames". A frame means that a single window is divided up into rectangular portions, each of which holds a separate page. Although frames can be very useful, particulary for holding menus and controls, they can also be very confusing. For example, there's only one "location" bar in a browser, but if there are three web pages being displayed, what location should it show? (It shows the location of the "frameset", which defines the frames.) Many web users wish frames had been done differently, and there is still hope that we may come up with better ways to do the things that frames do.
An HTML program. A frame is a stationary part of a web page that stays put while you scroll through another part of the web page. (That other part is also a frame). Each frame is actually a separate web page. When you see a page with two or three frames, you are actually looking at two or three web pages.
A feature of HTML that allows a web author to divide a page into two or more separate windows. If the frame does not have a title element, or the title element is not meaningful this can cause accessibility issues. In addition, some browsers do not support frames.
A feature of some web browsers that enables a page to be displayed in separate scrollable windows. Frames can be difficult to translate for text-only viewing via ADA guidelines, so their use is increasingly being discouraged.
(a) boxes frequently used in word processing and DTP programs allowing text or visuals to be moved and locked to a specific position on a page or locked to adjacent text. These frames allow headlines to span more than one text column and allow pull quotes to be positioned between columns. (b) In Internet terminology frames are used to subdivide a browser window in order that different files or windows consistently appear in frames along the top, bottom, or side of the screen. Frames permit Web site visitors to navigate throughout a Web site while the firm's logo or positioning statement remains in the same position to enhance branding of the site and all navigation links remain visible.
are ideological viewpoints (mind sets) that become translated into advertising, speeches to shareholders, the training of leaders and workers, and inform the strategic plans (plots) of the firm. Boje (2001a) and Gardner (2002) have theorized and studied the multiplicity of frames (what they call the hybridity of frames) in complex organizations.
Woods used for the frames of upholstered pieces like sofas and chairs. Frame woods must be strong, able to resist shocks, and not twist, warp, swell or shrink. Ash, birch, oak, gumwood and poplar are among the most popular.
Video consists of a number of still image frames which, when they play back over time, give the illusion of motion. NTSC video plays back 29.97 frames per second, and PAL video plays back 25 frames per second. Each broadcast video frame is made up of two fields. This is different from the way film handles frames. A film frame is a single photographic image, and does not have separate fields.
Racks at the back of a Jacquard loom, each holding a different color of pile yarn. In Wilton carpets, two to six frames may be used and the number is a measure of quality as well as an indication of the number of colors in the pattern, unless some of the yarns are buried in the backing.
impart meaning to a given set of circumstances, events or behaviour. Once the frame has been established, the meaning can be defined. As if frame - The process of acting "AS IF" you are what you want to be. Eg acting happy when you feel sad. Discovery frame - The action of suspending expectation, judgement and desire in order to create a mental framework in which to discover and learn.
The individual video images that make up a moving sequence. Video formats and individual clips are typically described in terms of the resolution of the individual frames, and the frame rate at which they are played. See also frame rate, field.
Frames are ways of defining a problem. Some people may define a problem in terms of rights, while others may define it in terms of interests or relative power. These different positions are sometimes referred to as different "frames."
