    Default How to open external link from another site of my homepage

    Can someone please help me with this. I am not a Java programmer but I know this bit requires Java script. I want to open an external link from another site in my homepage of my site. I have tried the behaviours in Dreamweaver but they don't work. How can I do this? Thanks

    Hello hena,

    I'm sorry but this is a Java forum, not Java Script. Java & Java Script are two different languages.

    I may be able to help you though. I am confused with:

    "I want to open an external link from another site in my homepage of my site"

    How do you mean exactly?

    I may be wrong because I need clarification on what you mean, but look into IFRAMES.

    Thankyou for clarifying the two different languages. I want to link the word 'Brazil' to an external ULR but I want it to open in my website window. So my site is open as well as the external URL within it. I hope you understand what I mean. However I will try iFrames. thankyou

    I think an Iframe is exactly what you need. Using an Iframe, you can display an external URL from within your own website.
