|External / Full (absolute) URL||<A HREF= "http://faculty.washington.edu/krumme/subdirectory/fileA.html">||faculty.washington.edu/krumme/subdirectory/fileA.html|
|External / same Domain: Relative URL||<A HREF="/krumme/thisclass/file.html">||faculty.washington.edu/krumme/thisclass/file.html|
|Internal - Linking to files within the current folder:||<A HREF="nextpage.html">||students.washington.edu/uid/current/nextpage.html
= your login account to Dante (e.g: krumme)
|Internal - another lower-level folder (one level down) from current folder||<A HREF="folder2/file.html">||students.washington.edu/uid/current/folder2/file.html|
|Internal - another, higher level folder (onel level up) from current folder||<A HREF="../file.html">
../ says to go up 1 level from current and find "file.html"
Notice that "current" is left out from the absolute URL
|Internal - from current folder moving down 2 folder-levels:||<A HREF= "class1/hw1/Exercise.html">||students.washington.edu/uid/class1/hw1/Exercise.html
Notice how long it is compared to the Relative URL?
|Internal - Same Page/File: Two Tags are Needed, namely the Origin and the Destination Tags||Origin:
<A HREF="#thisspot">This Spot </A >
Click on "This Spot" and it will take you to the Destination location.
Destination: < A NAME="thisspot" >
Doing it this way, you must include the file name (file.html) then followed by the anchor name - preceded by the pound key (#thisspot).
|Internal - from a specific page in a specific directory to a specific spot in another page in another directory (on a different branch):||<A HREF=
= go back up one level from the current folder, then go down one level (to glossaries) and find the "Internetgloss.html" file; then, on this page, proceed to the anchor marked "thisspot".
|This ABSOLUTE tag can be very very long depending on where your current folder is in the directory tree. Your best bet is to use the RELATIVE URL - it can save space and make moving these files in the future a lot easier.|
|Internal - (another folder and another branch: go first "upwards" towards first common higher-level directory, then switch to other branch,) / Relative URL||<A HREF= "../../secondclass/file.html">
This says to go up 2 levels from current folder, then go into "secondclass" folder and find "file.html" within "secondclass" folder.
Note: We're combine both backward and forward selecting of directories. If you can understand and use this tag, then you're well on your way to creating any links you want to.
|Using relative URL can be confussing if you
keep track of your folder's location on the directory tree.
You may wish to draw a sketch of this "tree".
...best example of a directory tree is by looking at Windows
Because of this, some people decide to use the absolute URL instead... it is your call!
