I am a self-taught designer looking for a few tips on what to do or not to do when it comes to different types of design.
My major question is about frames. I know they aren’t the best option, but I have a site that I am working on right now that seems like there is no other option. I need the sidebar to be fixed and the content to scroll. Can this be done in CSS, or am I stuck with frames? And are frames as bad as they used to be?May 12, 2008 at 7:51 am #47395
You could use a position: fixed; on the sidebar that’ll follow when you scroll. Alot of people tend to instantly dislike a website if it uses frameset, even though it’s totally valid. But then again position: fixed; won’t work for users on IE5.5/win (haha).

When it comes to the issue of using framesets nowadays, I would try alot of things before I’d turn to them (again, like back in ’97). They’re not just good for you. Like a cigarette.
