Hyperlinks
Talon - 8/6/2004 at 07:27 AM

Ok, I think I found a better way than my post below to explain the help I need.


on my index page I have hyperlinks like:

<a href="javscript:;" onClick="return sgoto(4);">About Us </a>

Now that tells them to go to page 4 in content.


So what I need is how could I make hyperlink that go inside a email, that would take them right to my index page, but with a certain content page loaded up??


Thank you for your help

I don't suggest to use client side JS code in emails. Thanks goodness that will never work in my email client.

If you want to send some additional data in the URL then use GET parameters:

http://some-domain.com/page.cgi?param=value

then you can use the information provided in server side script and/or client side code

OK,

Let me phrase it another way. Since the site consists of only a index page, all other pages are loaded up into the scroller thing, how can I send someone an email so they can go right to my index page but with a particular content page already loaded up?

Could I make a blank html page with a redirect?? That way any code or whatever isnt in the email but on just a single page designed for that use?

Also, please know I know very little about web stuff. And I noticed that when the page loads up it loads over 100 pictures from the tsp folder?? Any ideas on this? I looked in there and I dont see 100 images.

Thank you again in advance.

in email links I still suggest to use parameters in URL. You can have some parameter which will specify what scroller item you want to be displayed when page loads. Example:

http://www.yoursite.com/yourpage.html?item=36

Then in your HTML document you need to have some custom JavaScript code that will extract data about desired item from the address line and call scroller's method to set it up. Some javascript/DHTML knowlege is required to acomplish that (ask a friend or order customization from your friends at softcomplex).

Regarding 100 pictures: how did you noticed and where did you look?
