Direct Links Vs. Cgi Form Redirects.
Posted 18 November 2005 - 04:00 PM
FORM - select your state: (Menu of 50 states)
href - Alabama
href - Alaska
(I did not want to make actual go-nowhere hyperlinks, but you get the idea.)
I am considering the addition of state hyperlinks to the bottom of the main page as an alternative to using the CGI redirect form. I have this state hyperlink format in the site map, but the site map is not being picked up by the bots, so far. I have seen the FAQ and article links, but not the site map. I may need to move that link up to the top where the others I just mentioned (Articles and FAQ) are listed.

P.S. I just noticed, I moved up to an HR3! (Is that a good thing, or do I just ask too many stupid questions?)

Rather than try to explain how to do it, check out the Quick Links or Schools dropdown boxes on the NYU site.

Visitors view it as a styled form dropdown list. Search engine spiders eat up those links. That much I can assure you.

I certainly appreciated the reply and the link. As I stated, I think that concept is a great idea for smaller menus and I would never have even known it existed, if it were not for your post. (Over 6-months ago, I asked about redirect options just like this one on two other forums. No answers like this ever surfaced.)

First, IE5 is archaic. I wouldn't spend too much time worrying about that one unless your site stats indicates you have a significant portion of your users still using IE5. It just means they haven't upgraded anything in 2 years or so. Same goes with NN4.x as far as I'm concerned.
If you have a longer list, I'm 100% sure it could be created in such way that all of the links could be seen in any fairly modern browser. IE5 had severe box model issues, but you could code around those. NN4.x didn't support much CSS, so that one is a moot point.

Cool idea, Jill
P.S. I am not so sure about the scrolling suckerfish menus. I have contacted three programming sites, had 30 views collectively, and so far, no one has reported seeing such a script. I need to give it a couple more days to see if something turns up, but after reading about 50 posts about suckerfish menus, I would estimate about half the people who use them have expressed difficulty with them, especially with cross-browser reliability.

Those are by people without a clue.
Simple as pie.
