JavaScript Codes


JavaScript Codes

JavaScript codes are used within the HTML portion of a web page, or on a web server, to add special effects to a web page.

Elements such as links, images and forms can all be manipulated using this powerful technology.

Unlike CGI scripts, JavaScript codes can be placed directly into your HTML code. It can also reside on your server and be called from a small code within your web page.

If you’d like to place your JavaScript code within a file on your server, you will need to open a plain text editor and place your JavaScript code within the editor. The JavaScript code file should then be saved with a .js extension.

In order to call your JavaScript code, you will need to link to the file. You can do so by placing a small JavaScript code within the HTML of your web page that looks something like this:

<script language=”Javascript” src=””>

This powerful scripting language can be used to create special effects within your web page, such as link effects, mouseovers, image roll overs, navigational systems and much more.

JavaScript to Avoid

Although JavaScript codes can certainly help you spice up your website, there are many scripts that your visitors may find irritating. Try to avoid scripts such as mouse trailers, mouseover sounds, mouseover pop up windows and mouseover redirects.

Carefully select scripts that will enhance your visitors experience and encourage them to return in the future.
