Troubleshooting

Linking to Files in Different Folders

Q1:What is the syntax for linking from a page in one subdirectory to a page in a different subdirectory?
A1: If you are linking from, say molly_books.html within the books subdirectory to molly_music.html within the music subdirectory, the link would look as follows:
<A href="../music/molly_music.html">Molly's Music</A>

Notice that you have told the browser to go back to the root (the /) and then look in the music subdirectory. For more on this refer back to the section on relative links.

Reciprocal Link Refusal

Q1:Why would someone turn down an opportunity for their site to gain more exposure through a link on another site?
A1: In most cases, Web developers are honored when you choose to link to their site. There are some instances when this is not the case. Some Web-hosting services charge based on the number of server hits per month. If the site that adds the link is extremely popular, this can result in extra fees for the linked site because of the extra hits. In some cases, the extra hits are enough to cause the server to crash if it is not able to handle such a high usage load.
