OK, I created an iframe. And below it, I created two navagational buttons; one's "next" and the other's "previous".I also have pages and pages of information that should show up in the iframe. So my question is: how do I make it so that when I click my "next" or "previous" button, it would go page after page? So far I only managed to view two pages....And I'm also a beginner at this stuff, so it shouldn't be too hard.Thanks to anyone who offers help!

You need to add the name attribute to your iframe, like this:

<iframe src="page.html" name="something"></iframe>

And your next/previous links need to target the iframe, so:

<a href="nextpage.html" rel="next" target="something"><img src="next.gif" alt="Next" /></a>

(I assume you are using images)As for previous:

<a href="previouspage.html" rel="prev" target="something"><img src="prev.gif" alt="Previous" /></a>

Of course you need to change the previouspage.html and nextpage.html to the actual pages, and I assume that the images are called next.gif and prev.gif. But that should be sufficient to remedy the problem.

I think his problem is that because the "next" and "previous" links are hard-coded and only change once (at load time) after he clicks "next" the second time it is clicked the same page will load again...You could, as webspider said, use JavaScript to dynamically load the page, so say your pages to be loaded into the iframe were called page_1.html, page_2.html, page_3.html, etc.

<script type="text/javascript">	function movePage(sign) {		thisPage = parseInt(document.getElementById('page').innerHTML);		thisPage = thisPage + sign;		if (thisPage < 1) thisPage = 1;		document.getElementById('page').innerHTML = thisPage;		document.getElementById('iframe').src = "page_" + thisPage + ".html";		return false;	}</script><iframe src="page_1.html" id="iframe"></iframe><br /><a href="#" onclick="return movePage(1)" id="prev_button">Previous Page</a>Your current page is page <span id="page">1</span><a href="#" onclick="return movePage(-1)" id="next_button">Next Page</a>
