Thread: Multi Layout Region

  1. #1

    Default Multi Layout Region

    I have been using NOF for a long time now but am still confused as to how to use the Multi Layout Region and how to make each layer visible via a link or something. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to how to use this? Thanks

    I to am having trouble activating a specific tab in a multi layout region, from a link.

    The suggested format of /html/page.html#LayoutRegion4LYR doesn't work.

    And while /html/body_page.html#LayoutRegion4LYR does select the desired tab, I lose the button bar in my master border.

    Any suggestions how to link to the page with a specific tab selected in the multi layout region would be much appreciated!

    sounds like you are using frames? if so, I would try "target body" in link options dropdown

    but I would not use frames to begin with

    Thanks Anton, but unfortunately it has to be linked to from outside, such as a return link from Paypal, so 'target body' isn't an option unless there is some way to specify that in a standard link.

    Yeah, I have been wondering about ditching the side frame for a while now. I guess this may be the trigger!

    <a href="http://www.yoursite.com/html/page.html" target="_body">Link_Title</a>

    Will that really work when linked to from outside my site? Such as if I specify a 'return to' link in the Paypal button setup?

    I understand that's the way to specify it from within my site html, but I need to link to a page on my site from a different site that I don't have control of, other than specifying a 'return to' web address..

    try it, create a test external link from your own site and target the body of the desired page, then do a local publish and test

    I don't have your url so can't try

    It turned the link into this:

    http://192.168.10.100:8001/html/%3Ca...on4LYR%3C/a%3E

    Which definitely didn't work.

    I also tried it as a Paypal return address, but Paypal said:

    ERROR INVALID INPUT:

    successful redirect url:Sorry, the link you gave us isn't working. Please double-check it to make sure it's correct. The link must begin with 'http' or 'https'.

    But abandoning the side frame fixed the problem, so it's all good now.

    abandoning frames is the best idea
