    Default Dynamic navigation, like Home > Products 

    I need some ideas as to how one might go about this. You&#039;ve seen this same thing on many other sites. Basically I just want to allow them to navigate throughout the site, and be able to go back to where they started, or maybe just a few pages back, but give them a friendly display name and a link. e.g.:<BR><BR>Home &#062; Products &#062; Electronics &#062; Stereos &#062; Etc.<BR><BR>How might one go about this?

    Do you have a database that contains the hierarchy of site categories? -- or do you just want to hard code the site sections? What is the maximum number of levels?<BR><BR>Nathan,<BR>http://aspapp.com<BR>nathan@aspapp.com

    Default An even easier way...

    ...that can be done is to simply reflect the DIRECTORY structure on the server into the URLs used.<BR><BR>That is, if the server has:<BR><BR>Products<BR>&nbsp; &nbsp; Electronic<BR>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Consumer<BR>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Commercial<BR>&nbsp; &nbsp; Toys<BR>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Beanies<BR>&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Barbies<BR><BR>then you simply convert the directory structure into the Products &#062;&#062; Electronics &#062;&#062; Consumer format automagically.<BR><BR>A little work with the FileSystemObject and/or Request.ServerVariables("URL") should do the trick.<BR><BR>
