My knowledge of JavaScript is not great, and I've discovered that I can't put some things in those .JS files. But I'm gradually feeling my way and am working out ways of incorporating affiliate links into them. Would be great if I could add search boxes to those .JS files, but the codes provided by affiliate programs are not in pure Javascript.

One thing: is it possible to add a drop-down menu to a .JS file?
I've tried the following, which works normally, but not via a .JS call:

<FORM NAME="nav"><SELECT NAME="SelectURL" onChange="window.open (document.nav.SelectURL.options[document.nav.SelectURL.selectedIndex].value,'newwindow')">

<OPTION VALUE="http://www.freefind.cjb.net"SELECTED>
Please select site to visit:
<OPTION VALUE="http://CDUK.Best.CD">
CD UK - Discount Music
<OPTION VALUE="http://Nutrel.cjb.net">
Nutrel - Health
<OPTION VALUE="http://TopSitesUK.cjb.net">
UK Top - Best of British
</SELECT></FORM>

Spent ages trying to work this one out. Been scouring all the JS sites, but no luck.

Thanks :)

Litmania, it seems no one knows the answer to this off the top of their heads - you might have more luck in the Browsers forum where the JavaScript people hang out ;)

I'll rally the troops and see if we can get an answer for you though!

Here's an earlier thread discussing methods for using an external javascript file for navigation. It has several good references and techniques -- hope it has the help you need.

Erm..because its not Java Script?

Because the <form> tags specify where the form is on the page?
