z-index footer stay put

  • # August 22, 2009 at 3:24 am

    Hi everyone, i am working on a project where i want to have the footer stay put at the bottom like http://www.tutorial9.net and i have no problem laying it out, the problem is how can i make it so when i click a link and loads a new page the footer won’t be affected and does not reload, only the rest of the page loads underneath it?

    For now if you click the link just under the sliding panel its a duplicate of the same page.

    Hey – well you can do that quite easily but to have it not reload is the issue… you would have to start going into frames then and I would strongly recommend not going there. Is there any reason why it needs to not reload?

    Ahh I just saw why – music player.

    Well you can make a frame and put the music player in – work it like the irritating digg tool bar does :)

    Thanks for your reply Robskiwarrior, is there a way of making this work without using frames? Using frames causes alot of functions to stop working.

    I am trying to achieve this same as http://www.tutorial9.net

    Any other suggestions are appreciated

    Edit: I just checked http://www.tutorial9.net again and i think it reloads the ad banner to so many frames is the only option?

    Yup they just have a DIV that reloads, so if you were playing music it would stop. The best way of using a music player without the issue of reload and frames is to not have it working from the main page, but use a new window with the player in. For example: http://undertheigloo.com/

    then you can browse the site, giving the people the option to listen and not have to defile yourself with frames :)
