Frames question

Hi, I have a design question:
My home page checks if a user is logged in. If not already logged in,
it displays a login form; if already logged in, it displays a table
with some links. When the user clicks on any link in that table, I want
to open a page that has a set of frames, one called "mainFrame", in
which I want to display the page related to the clicked link.

I am not sure how to set up this thing so when user clicks on the link,
it opens up in the mentioned frame.

The framed page has some elements, such as stats and navigation menu
that I do not want to be displayed unless user is logged in and has
clicked on a link.

You'll need multiple frameset pages, each displaying appropriate content in
the name="mainFrame" frame. Your links will go to these frameset pages,
rather than to the framed content pages.


But I recommend that you just get rid of the frames. See
