Breaking Out of Frames : LUSENET : B&W Photo: URL Review : One Thread

The first post made me aware that if you link to a url from within a message on this forums, it opens up in this frame--the info in the top frame from B&W World stays so it seems the outside URL is part of B&W World! Quite annoying.

I'll see if I can get that changed. In the meantime, the best thing to do when following a link within a posting is to right-click (on a pc) or click-hold (on a mac) until you see an option menu come up, then choose "open this frame in new browser" option.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Alternately, when entering the html for the link, include a "target=_top" within the tag, as in <a target="_top" href=><a&# 62; If I've done this right, it will break you out of the frame when you visit my site.

Oops! the last sequence there has # & 6 2 ; and it should be a greater than sign like this </a> (i put the # before the & instead of after, sorry)
