  • Frame vs. Header/Footer

    Hi All,

    I am just wondering if someone can offer guidance on the benefits/differences between breaking up my global store design by using the header, footer and left/right banner areas (settings>design>header) rather than including the design elements in the frame file? When 3DCart designers imported my existing site from MC, they used a combination of both. Since I am not an expert in web design, I'm just finding it a sort of clunky process to update certain parts of my store design via the ftp and frame file and others by going through the admin panel, rather than just editing it all in one complete frame file using Dreamweaver. Are there certain reasons to break the design into chunks using the admin settings rather than the frame file? Or is it merely a matter of a web designer's preference?

    Any thoughts or experience you might share would be much appreciated.
