Lazyweb Help: Busting out of frames post

September 10th, 2009

Normally I don't ask for time-sensitive help on my blog, but since my readers are such gracious bunch I thought I could count on them to help me out.

I have a site for work that uses frames. Oh yeah, it's CakePHP application. Frames are not my favourite thing in the world, but they are part of this particular site. Now here is my problem:

  1. Users must be authenticated to use the site, and when they log in from the front page a bunch of frames are loaded. Then they can click around doing stuff.
  2. When their session times out, meaning they need to get logged back in, I need for the frames to disappear and send them back to front page of the site.

So far, I have not been able to figure out how to do this. I've been told by reliable sources on Twitter that I probably need some Javascript code that does something like this: ~~~ ~~~ but I cannot determine *where* to put that code. Please help this frames n00b figure it out!
