Q2034 How do I make sure my site does not get framed?

You are here: irt.org | FAQ | HTML | Q2034 [ previous next ]

This is a tough question. There's even been web sites going to court, because their site got framed by another site.

The HTML answer to the question, is to add target="_top" to every link. This would make your links look like the below example:

<A HREF="main.htm" TARGET="_top">The Main Page</A>

This will make sure, that when a user clicks on a link, he/she will jump out of any possible frames. If the page is not framed, the user will not notice a difference.

There's also a JavaScript solution to the problem, and you can learn more about this in the article Redirecting access within frames #2
