Hi,

In the link configuration there's a "Target" option (in the other tab I believe, there are several tabs on the top of the configuration form), you can choose it there.

I could not find any target option for the links anywhere without changing them before I upload my site!  Also how can you use the target option if the program does not let you define a given name for the iframe, look at the source it is not linked to the program!  I am about to use another editor this one seems pointless to do simple iframe targeting from links!  This program is missing basic functions required to do standard iframe functions in my point of view!

Is this what you fail to find (attention to the tabs on the top)?

Concerning "given name to the iframe" etc., I am not sure what you are looking for. If you want to open different pages in an iframe on clicking different elements on the page, it's rather simple to do.
If for example you have one iframe on the page (element External page or added manually with a Visual Code Block), and 2 elements of any kind to be clicked, add for the element 1 Properties->Custom Classes "button1" (without "") and for the element 2 "button2", then add a Code Block Source type Javascript:


$(function(){
  $('.button1').click(function(){ $('iframe').attr('src', 'http://site.com/page1.html'); });
  $('.button2').click(function(){ $('iframe').attr('src', 'http://site.com/page2.html'); });
});


Any newcomer can do it in 2 minutes following these instructions, I think.

Okay, let me start over!  If you are familiar with iframe-sets?!, then this should be easy to understand where I am coming from.  On my page I have 3 external iframes, I have an iframe on the top for the banner/logo, on the bottom half, I have separated into two sections.  On the left side iframe I have a menu, on the right side I have the body/main page!  I am trying to click on a link from the menu page and target the destination onto the body/main page.  The code you provided does not allow that, only to link to the iframe it is in, not any other iframe.  I know that if you define a name for the iframe and use the target option common in all links(not sure why it is not an option?), you can accomplish this!  Like I said originally there are common features most designer web sites offer that this one misses such as a simple link, name and target feature for iframes!

If you need to specify the name, use Code Block Visual instead of the integrated External page element, and write the iframe tag the way you need, like here for example:

http://www.trans4mind.com/personal_development/HTMLGuide/iframes3.htm

You can then set size, position (and style though it's probably useless) to each Block.

P.S. The target attribute on links is not freely editable, but it can be relatively easy achieved with jQuery. Put Custom Class "iframe1" onto all links targetting iframe 1, "iframe2" to those targetting iframe 2 etc. Then, the Code Block Source type Javascript:


$(function(){
  $('.iframe1  a').attr('name', 'name_of_your_iframe_1');
  $('.iframe2  a').attr('name', 'name_of_your_iframe_2');
  // etc.
});


OE doesn't have - and does not try to have, as it evolves all the time anyway - integrated options for all possible needs, but it usually lets to add a bit of code where needed while keeping the layout visually editable.

I'm good!  I have moved on something better! I will be searching for a WYSIWYG editor that suits more of my needs.  OpenElement is not for me!  Thanks for the help!
