Code Options

A webring works by having a set of standard links on each page in the ring. You must add webring navigation code to your page for it to function as part of the ring. The magic doesn't work without you!

The Javascript Navbar

If you have already posted the code for the stacking Yahoo webring navigation bar on your webpage, the Bookfans navigation bar will automatically appear in the stack if you are added to the ring.

If you have not yet posted the navbar code, you can get it at your "My Rings" link when you sign in at webring.

The stacking navbar is a convenience if you register the same webpage with many webrings. Each additional bar on the stack, however, slows the loading of your page, and if it loads too slowly some rings -- including Bookfans -- will not accept your page.

The navbar has a major drawback, however, for webmasters -- like the Booffans webmaster, Anitra -- who value universal accessibility. It is unusable by text browsers and older browsers, and difficult for some people with vision problems.

HTML Code

As an alternative, we have HTML navigation code that has been updated to use the new Yahoo links. You can no longer get a copy of the HTML tailored for your site, but you can copy the code of your choice from this page and edit it to substitute your own site information.

Webring Graphics

Use of the graphic is optional. If you do decide to use it, however, you must copy it to your own webspace and change the image link in the webring code accordingly.

If you are using a PC (with a two-button mouse), right-click on the image. If you are using a Mac (which has a one-button mouse) click on the image and hold.

You will get a pop-up menu: one of the options is "Save this image as ..." (if you are using Netscape) or "Download image to disk" (if you are using IE.)

Select that option, and save the image to your hard drive.

Using the FTP program of your choice, upload the image to your own webspace.

Change the image file name in the webring code you've chosen to point to the directory where you have posted the image, and the filename you've chosen for it.
