    Default Need help with NOF 7 design....

    Hello:

    I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to create the following kind of interactive display / window and get it to work in NOF7 ? This object would be in the content area of a web page. When you click on the various text links at the top of the object it would load a new image and brief write-up in the bottom area. Clicking on the text only changes the image and brief text in the box below, so users get a bit of a "preview". A new web page would not load until you clicked on the "Click Here to Find Out More" in the bottom area, then it would typically open a PDF file in a new browser window or sometimes take the site visitor to a new page. The object would have to be this approx. size (could be taller or shorter but the width is where it needs to be).

    I can't get the "Manage Attachments" function to work properly here so I am including a link to the image file...

    Image Link: http://www.nbfsc.com/LayoutArea.jpg

    This new interactive object would be used in the center content area of this page: http://www.nbfsc.com/html/main.html

    It needs to something that will be very easy and quick to update because the client will want to make weekly updates for about 6 or 8 months out of every year. We would be doing the updates / changes "in-shop" at the request of the client.

    We do not do Flash or Swish "in-shop" so we simply cannot pay someone to update it in flash or swish every week. Is there a better solution, perhaps a scripted option someone knows about?

    Does anyone have any ideas? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    You could use a targeted iFrame which would be the easiest to maintain since an iFrame calls in a separate HTML document.

    To change the contents all you would need to do would be to upload a different document (using the same name) and the trigger would call what ever document was the same as the name in the routine. Updating would be 2-3 minuts to change the content on the targeted document and a couple seconds to FTP it to the domain/folder

    I guess I need a little more clarity on the reference to a "targeted iframe" and how it relates to the top text links, etc. Can you help me with that? Thanks.
