Shared Borders in FP2000

I had a horrible time when I tried to put a shared border at the bottom of the school's website I'm creating. When I put a shared border on the bottom so that I could put the Milonic Logo/Link in I only saw a portion of my menu. I had the scripts in the body just like I've seen everyone suggest and It didn't work. :idea: I found that with shared borders you MUST put the scripts in the header or it won't work. What a bother.

Another problem:
I need to put a menu on the left side of the page that links to all the pages in the site, kind of like the FP Navigation Bar thing. Which would be better, A shared border on the left, or Frames, Both of which seem to give problems to Milonic's Menus. I'm in a bind, HELP :!: :x :!:

Shared border.

Can you give an example? I have the menu on my site, use FP and have no problems. I just simply made a template page with the code in my header and start all new pages from the template.

Got it

FrontPage Shared borders are definately better. After a lot of fiddling (more than I would have liked to do) I have the menu working with Shared Borders. You should be able to see the menu system at near the end of august. If the site has a spinning CH in the upper left corner, it's the old site without any menus.

Version 5.0 has full support for Shared Borders.

The problem with v3 is that you can't embed the menu inside a table. As Shared Borders are essentially tables, this is of course the problem.

There is a release candidate here:

By the way, Shared Borders are definitely better that Frames

We always say to only use Frames unless there really isn't any other way. As there is always an alternative to frames it's a foregone conclusion
