Hi guys, please does anyone know how I can hyperlink the contents of a drop down box such that each entry in the box links to a different page entirely. I have about 36 entries in the box. I use FrontPage 2003. Any help will be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks.

This is whats in my drop down menu.
"<option selected="selected">Select Page</option>"
"<option value="index.html">Home Page</option>"

The first line (without the quotes) is directly under the code for the menu
then just put as many lines (without the quotes) of the "option value" as needed changing the page name and hyperlink text to suit.

Hope this helps.

Hey Extrodewise,

You have a lot (36?) of stuff for a single drop down. It often takes me several passes to get through one of those wickets.

There are a couple of ways to do what you want. There are a number of options here but maybe the simple horizontal will work. Note that not all drop down.

Another way to do it uses Javascript. I assume you can insert that with FrontPage.

It might be nice to break that pile of 36 into smaller groups. Companies often do that where there is a broad product line. The "menu" is collapsed until you hit the "+" for the group you want to see. Be kind to your visitors.
