Important objections to use frames

  • Search engines are not able to handle frames. Search results will refer to the document with the relevant information, regardless if the document is part of the frame set or not.
  • This could lead to the fact that the visitor isn't presented with the menu or navigation that should be part of that document.
  • Bookmarks don't seem to work properly. It is possible to bookmark a sub document separately, but once the page is opened again, the context of the main document is gone.
  • Frequently it's not possible to print a page with frames.
  • Fold out menu's are only presented in their own frame. This leads to the fact that the sub items will not appear in the navigation menu on the main page.
