Frame redirect - sub page addresses not showing AP68 5/12/12 6:00 PM
Hi,

I hope you can help me with the problem I have described below. 
If not, do you think that moving my domain elsewhere, or even hosting my website elsewhere might help? (I would really prefer not to do the latter if possible as I really like Google Sites).

Many thanks in advance.

Andrew.


Background info:
I bought a domain name from 1and1 which is www.humphreypark.co.uk. I have frame redirected this address to my google site from within the 1and1 control panel and set the DNS CNAME to ghs.google.com.
Within the google sites 'manage site' area, I have added the address www.humphreypark.co.uk to this site.

The problem:
When I navigate to sub pages within the website, the address bar always shows the address I used to get to the site, rather than the full address of the page I am currently viewing.

Examples:
  • Visit the home page at www.humphreypark.co.uk then navigate to another page in the website - the address bar does not change to show, for example, www.humphreypark.co.uk/rooms-for-hire.
  • I can visit any page of the site by typing in the direct address and then the correct address does display. Try visiting www.humphreypark.co.uk/events then navigating to another page. Again the address bar does not change to show the current page being viewed.
Additional info:
The links within the website are all google links at present. However, on the home page I changed a couple of links to the .co.uk ones to see if they behaved differently but it didn't make any difference.

Thank you.

...by the way, I checked the status of the CNAME record and got the result in the attached image.
All this is the result of a lot of research via Google and this forum.
Many thanks in advance of your help,
Andrew.

Have you waited 48 hours for the DNS to propagate?  I have just been to your site and it's working as you want it to - see the screen shot from my computer below:

My apologies. I thought that checking the result of the CNAME record indicated it was OK at that point but it seems I should have waited. I live and learn. Thanks for your reply.
Re: Frame redirect - sub page addresses not showing Steegle 5/13/12 12:19 PM
Your computer keeps a copy of DNS records and the DNS records have what's called a Time To Live (TTL): if that TTL is 24 hours your computer won't try and get a new copy of the DNS record for 24 hours from when it first go it, hence your computer will always give you the old DNS record.  It doesn't stop there either: your modem/router keeps a copy; your ISP keeps a copy; their ISP keeps a copy, and so on: this is why you need to wait 24-48 hours for DNS to propagate.

Thanks for the useful information - I'll bear that in mind.

Trying to do the same exact thing as original poster, but am having trouble understanding the solutions. I bought a domain from enom.

This is what I have originally:

So should I create:
CNAME www ghs.google.com

Should I have just the CNAME records, or CNAME and URL FRAME? I'm very confused, and trial and error isn't an option because of the 24-48 hour delay.
Thanks guys

For full instructions on how to map the domain correctly try following the instructions in question 3 of our Google Sites FAQ to get your naked domain (the @ record) to redirect to your www address.

Question 3 covers:
-Personal sites
-Sites through google apps (but only for subdomains of the owner)

My site falls under google apps, which presents a problem.
There's only the option to map subsites, internal to the admin domain, not external sites. So if I'm working on a site that's for somebody else, making a subdomain under my domain is not really an option--I have to use their domain.

So to be abundantly clear, there's no need to use URL Frame, and instead I should have CNAME www ghs.google.com?

Ideally, the end result should be what AP68 has on his website  www.humphreypark.co.uk, as the URL reflects the current subdirectory.

I think I found THE solution to this problem.

All I did was:
1) Added my site to Google Webmaster Tools
2) added a  CNAME www ghs.googlehosted.com

Seems to be working now!

Tnx guys

Yes: Google Apps sites can only take a subdomain of the primary domain, so they are the only two options.

This means you need to copy the site out of your Google Apps domain to a personal site or to another Google Apps domain.

Correct

Yes: if you the instructions in question 3 of our Google Sites FAQ you will achieve this.

Provided you have also added the web address to the site then yes it will work. 
Re: Frame redirect - sub page addresses not showing AP68 2/8/13 2:07 PM
Peter, I'm glad you are getting this sorted. It can be so difficult to work out how to achieve these things at times.
Thank you once again to Steegle for his excellent advice.
