Using JavaScript to Create Navigational Menus for a Web Page

If you've ever been to a web site that had fancy fold out menus and wondered how they were created, this tip is for you.

You can create nice looking navigational menus for your web site using JavaScript.

There are many JavaScript sites on the Internet that will enable you to pick up nice scripts completely free:

When designing a web site, easy navigation is a necessity. Every page you create should contain good navigational links to enable your visitors to easily find what they're looking for.

Place your navigation links together at the top, bottom, left or right side of the page. Try to keep the number of clicks required to get from your main page to any other page on your site down to three. Use tables to neatly align your links.

If you are planning on using graphic buttons to navigate your web site, keep in mind, with each graphic you add to your page, it will take that much longer for your web page to load. If you only have a handful of navigational links, using graphic buttons will be fine. However, if you have over six links, it would be wise to simply use text links to keep your load time down.

Good navigation is a very important part of developing a professional web site.
