Status Bar Link Description

(Internet Explorer 6)

You can display your link description in the status bar of your browser. When the mouse is placed over a link, the link description will be viewed in the status bar.

Place your mouse over this link

Look within the lower left-hand side of the status bar to view the link description.

Copy and paste the following code into the HTML portion of your web page where you would like the link to appear:

<A HREF="" onmouseover="window.status='Your text description'; return true" onmouseout="window.status='';return true">Your linked text</a>

Change the text where indicated in red.

Another great use for this code is to hide an affiliate address. Many times, you will find that if your visitors see a link you are referencing is an affiliate link, they won't click on it. To alleviate this problem, you can use this HTML tip to hide your affiliate address.

Recommended Link

<A HREF="" onmouseover="window.status=''; return true" onmouseout="window.status='';return true">Recommended Link</a>

Change the text where indicated in red as follows:
- This link should be changed to your actual affiliate address. - This link should be changed to the link or text you would like your visitors to see within their status bar when they place their mouse pointer over the link.
Recommended Link - This text should be changed to the text you would like to be displayed within your web page.
