Web Navigation Paths  | Top |

There are 3 different WEB Author Preferred Available paths

Path 1 Click able  ( Text word ) 

Path 2 Click able  ( an Photo Image ),

Path 3 Click able  ( Tours )

Click able  ( Text word )  | Top |

If you click on a ( Text word ) this will take you on the Text word path where you will see pages that are primarily composed of text words with occasional photos or images.  

Click able  ( an Photo Image ),  | Top |

If you click on a (  Photo Image ), this will take you on the Photo Image path where you will see pages that are primarily composed of images with some additional explanatory text.

Click able   ( Tours )  | Top |

If you get to the Tours index or any tours page, you get to a tour that consists of whatever the Tour author wants you to see, in the order they want you to see them.  That is only if you use the "Right side Vertical Scroll Bar",  going from top to bottom, and the  "| Previous Item | Next Item |" to go in the order the Tour author would like you to experience the tour.

The  "| Previous Tour 1 | Next Tour 3 |"  links,  just provide a way for the Visitor to make sure they take all the tours available. 

How to See Everything  | Top |

Taking each of the tours is intended to be a way to make sure you see every item and image, hear every WAV file, and See all AVI files possible.   This does not mean you wont see several of the same things on different tours......    

Tours are a personal selection of most favorite items and excluding least favorite.  It is more of a personal point of view, in the order the author wants, including and excluding what they feel appropriate for the short amount of time for their personal tour.


Visitor Navigation Methods  | Top |

There are several different ways to navigate thru this web page .

Method 1    "Random tour."  Browser ( back arrow button ) Internet Explorer or Netscape .

Method 2   "Web Author Preferred Path"  | Previous | Next buttons. 

Method 3   "Hunt and Peck"

Method 4    Always use the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar

Method 5    Never use the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar

Single Method  -  If you only use one method this can be the result.


Method 1 "Random tour" - Browser ( back arrow button ) on Internet Explorer panels or Netscape panels   This is also similar to "Hunt and Peck"    | Top |  

Some people click on something click able  ( text word ) or ( an Image ), They look at the page, then use the Browser Internet Explorer or Netscape  ( back arrow button ), taking them back to the previous page they were on.  I call this the "Random tour."

Method 2  | Previous | Next buttons.   | Top |

Other people click on something click able  ( text word ) or ( an Image ), They look at the page, then use the  | Previous | Next buttons.   However this results in visiting a page next in a [ Web author chosen sequence ] or previous in a [ Web author chosen sequence ] , not necessarily where you last came from.

Method 3 "Hunt and Peck"  | Top |

Yet another people click on something click able  ( text word ) or ( an Image ), They look at the page, then use the | Home | button, to get back to the fist page, ( actually the index.htm page ),  then choose another click able  ( text word ) or ( an Image ),     A method which I call  "Hunt and Peck"  Hunt for something interesting the peck on its link.  Always returning to the front page, so they can "Hunt and Peck" again.  Similar to  "Random tour."

Method 4  Always use the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar  | Top |

Yet another people click on something click able  ( text word ) or ( an Image ) such as the "Tour 3 - Back Bar" page.  Then use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar, to look over several of the possible 100x100 pixel image with links to larger detailed photo's of that image.  

Method 5  Never use the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar  | Top |

Yet another people click on something click able  ( text word ) or ( an Image ) such as the | Tours |  ( text word ) to get to the tour index page.  Then choose the "Tour 3 - Back Bar" page.  Then go right on past the tour, not even stopping, to see the tour.  Instead they click on the "| Previous Tour 1 | Next Tour 3 |"  never stopping to look at the whole page by using the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar

Single Method  -  If you only use one method the following can be the result. | Top |

If you use Method 1    Browser ( back arrow button ) Internet Explorer or Netscape .You may miss out on the Web Authors Preferred Click able  ( Text word )  or Path 2 Click able  ( an Photo Image ), or finally the  Path 3 Tours, because you have selected your own random tour.

If you use Method 2    | Previous | Next buttons.  | Top |

You will see everything the WEB Author  wanted you to see on the ( Text word )  path if you chose it, or Path 2 Click able  ( an Photo Image ) path if you chose it instead, or finally the Path 3 Tours path if you chose it,

If you use Method 3   ("Hunt and Peck"   | Top |

You will get quickly to anything you want, however you will leave the Entire Web page having missed many of the available text and images,  but you wont even know that you missed it.

If you use Method 4    (Always use the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar)  | Top |

You will at least see everything on the entire page.

If you use Method 5    ( Never use the use the Right side Vertical Scroll Bar)  | Top |

You will miss everything below the top of the page that is not showing unless you use the Scroll bar.

NOTE 1 :  Providing only one path to get thru a web page, produces a very boring, single minded approach to looking at a web page.   This New Notion of Web page browsing is rich and interesting, only because each new visitor can  look at and assimilate information in the method or style most interesting to the  ( Viewer of the WEB PAGE ) not the ( Creator of the WEB PAGE ).   Each of us have different ( proffered navigation methods ), or ways of learning. or ways of assimilating information.  Which method do you prefer?

NOTE 2 : If you click on an image where there is no | Home | Top | Previous | Next | click able link,  then you  must use the Internet Explorer or Netscape  ( back arrow button ), taking back to the desired page.

NOTE 3 : The reason you have Text links is because some information is better presented in text format than if you used images.   For example if you take a picture of the juke box play list, it is too large to see the text.    When you use text files you can determine the text font, text size, text color, and amount of space required to show the same information.   

NOTE 4 :  When you use photographs of text information, the amount of file storage space required, uses up limited file storage space.  Formatted text is more readable, more manageable, less cumbersome,  faster load for viewer, it takes less time to read.    Some photos should be available just to preserve the original look and feel, as if actually looking at the real object.
