View Full Version : page containing iframes

24 Nov 2005, 05:13 PM

I am designing a web page containing 3 iframes. The iframes refer to data within each other. Although iframes are working well, the overall design of web page is not very attractive. I am looking for ways to improve the overall design of the web page. Any suggestions appreciated.
The web page is something like this:
[tab1][tab2] ...[tabn]
[subtabs ...]




I was also thinking of having the iframes move over each other. So I should be able to drag an iframe to swap positions (something like personlized google homepage). What is the best way to do this?

Any other suggestions into design and layout (or examples or references) greatly appreciated!

Don't use frames. They are bad design solutions that cause endless problems for users.

Having a web page that is drag and drop customisable is going to be very complex coding and probably not worth the effort. But it could probably be done using CSS for the layout (not frames) and allot of javascript.
