Set URLs


Poster: Two5kid

Hi,

I have one question. Can we set the base URLs for all the links?

For example,
My base URL would be http://kuanyew.tripod.com/
Do I need to insert the whole URL into every menu string?
As I have a couple of Subdirectories too.

Thanks

Rephrase

I think I need to rephrase my question as no one is answering me. :)

Well, what I want to know is that whether I can have a base URL for all the links within the Milonic Menu. Since I have a long URL : kuanyew.tripod.com it would be silly to type it out on every link.

For example:
kuanyew.tripod.com/Arsenal/arsenal.html

What I want is to only type "/Arsenal/arsenal.html" , instead of everything because I have "/Juventus/juventus.html" too.

Is there a line on the menu where I can just enter the base URL which is kuanyew.tripod.com, since it's going to appear in each and every link.

This should be easy.

Set the base URL at the top of the array with this

Code: Select all

baseurl="http://kuanyew.tripod.com/"


Then each menuitem needs to have this value added like this


Code: Select all

,"Menu Item", baseurl+"Arsenal/arsenal.html",,,1
......and so on



Hope this helps
Andy

Which Line?

Thanks for the reply, that would have saved me a lot of trouble. Anyway, to which line should I set the 'baseurl' code?

Right above "Time Delay"?
or at the "Reserved for Future Use"?

Anyline will do, Somewhere at the top of the code before your first menu item.

FWIW, I did what you were after without setting a base. Since the server already knows 'where it is' (base, if you will), I was simply able to go after my images and links from there; e.g., /sai/graphics/home.jpg, /sai/staff/calendar/, etc. No problems.

Err... You mean I don't have to set the urls?

For instance, if I want to jump from one directory to another?
Say, from baseurl/Arsenal/ to baseurl/Juventus/ ?

Usually, in HTML, you can't do so as the browser would search for
baseurl/Arsenal/Juventus/ . Do you know what I mean?

Just past the base. For instance, I have a menu running at http://westcgi.west.asu.edu/sai/. No base is specified in the code. To get to another location on the same server would be something like this snip...

Code: Select all

,"Bulletin Board","/sai/staff/ads/",,,1
,"Committees","/sai/staff/committees/",,"Committees",1
,"Directory","/sai/staff/directory/",,"Directory",1
,"Discounts","show-menu=discounts",,"Discounts",1
,"Energy-Wise Tips","/sai/staff/energy.cfm",,,1
,"Ergonomics","http://www.osha-slc.gov/SLTC/computerworkstations_ecat/",,"Ergonomics",1

etc.

Note that I have added the /sai/ again. That's only because of the way our servers are set up. Same is true for graphics...

Code: Select all

"/sai/graphics/arrow.gif",


Nifty stuff.

Also note that, obviously, if you go off-server you will need the entire URL :!:

THANKS!
