How to ensure that a Navbar Always Shows
This page explains how to ensure that a particular navbar for a particular webring always shows on your page.
Sometimes you may wish to ensure that a particular navbar is always visible on your web page.
You may have joined a webring that advocates a particular "cause" that you believe in and you may want that webring to be always visible as a way to promote that cause.
Or you may have joined a webring in which the ringmaster insists that the navbar be visible as a condition of membership.
For whatever reason, you may want the navbar to always display.
However, because the WebRing.com system only displays one navbar at a time, this can be a problem.
You have three options:
Option 1: Put the Navbar in a Separate Stack
This is easy to do. Basically, you assign the webring navbar to a separate stack by adding a bookmark to make the URL unique.
Again, I wrote an article that explains how to do it.
This technique is easy, but requires that you do this for each navbar that you want to show all the time.
Option 2: Show the entire Stack of Navbars
One of the most common requests I receive from fellow webringers is for information on how to show the entire navbar stack all the time.
If you want to show the entire stack you must take extra steps.
WebRing.com explains how to do it. I wrote an article to supplement their explanation.
This technique requires just a teeny-tiny change to the code you put on your page. But it is very easy, even for a novice.
Option 3: Combining #1 and #2
If you choose Option #1, I always recommend adding Option #2.
The article I wrote that explains how to do Option #1 also explains how to combine the two.
As always, if you want to do any of these and need more help, write me. I'd be glad to help.
I'm sorry. While I have long adopted webrings in the WebRing.com system, because of the Oct.2006 changes, I am no longer doing that.
However, please note that "deleting" your webring is a fruitless exercise. The system will just restore it and place it up for adoption.

Webring Sections and Subsections
The Webring Section is a large section of my website. I have divided it into four major "subsections".
each "subsection" has it's own special "logo".
As you travel in the various subsections you will find, near the bottom of each page, links to pages within that subsection and also links to the other subsections. To go to any subsection, just click on the "logo" or on the text link for that subsection.
Webrings: General Information
This subsection includes general information about webrings. Webrings can be hosted by a variety of different services. This section deals with the overall concepts and issues, not with any one particular "brand" of webring.
The Wazillion Navbars Project
This subsection is a historical section about the Yahoo! WebRing system. It was begun during the early days of problems with the Yahoo! WebRing system in September 2000.
It ended when the Yahoo! WebRing system spun off into the independent WebRing.com system in October 2001. I maintain it for the historical record. Click here or on the graphic.
Webrings I Own and Belong To
This subsection shows all the webrings I own and links to all the webrings to which I belong. This includes webrings in Ringlink, RingSurf, Bravenet and the WebRing.com system as well.
If you are looking to join one of my webrings, this is a good place to start. If you wonder about the webrings I belong to, this is the place to go. Click here or on the graphic.
