In an effort to help our visitors navigate this web site, this page provides a detailed description on how this web site is structured and how to find your way through it.

Explaining BarsEvery page of this web site includes a grey sidebar, located on the left side of your browser window, and a header bar which is the grey bar at the top of the browser window. The only exception to this rule is the main/home page which only has the sidebar. The sidebar has all the navigation tools required to access the primary and secondary level web pages. The header contains the term "CambridgeWeb.Net" on the left side. These words are hot linked. Clicking on the term: "CambridgeWeb.Net" will return you to the main/home page regardless of which page you are on at the time. Primary and secondary web pages can be identified by their title, located on the right hand side of the header.

Essentially, this web site is divided into three levels. Think of it in terms of a flow chart.

First Level pages can be identified by the white text graphic in the grey sidebar to the left of your browser. When you place your mouse on any of these, the type changes to yellow. This "Help" page is an example of a primary page. Other examples are "About", "Things to See and Do", "Available Services", etc. To open any of the primary web pages, you must click on the white (changing to yellow) text/graphic links.

Explaining First Level Web Pages

Primary level page titles are located in the top right hand corner of the grey header bar. For example, when you click on Things to See & Do it will say Things to See & Do in the header bar. All primary pages have a title in white type.

The Second Level web pages can be accessed using the pulldown menus located in the grey sidebar on the left of your browser. Secondary pages are associated with their corresponding primary pages by their location. For example, the pulldown menu located below the "Available Services" text graphic link are the secondary pages for that section. In this case, they are "Municipal" and "Social" services. Please read the following paragraph if you are not familiar with using pulldown menus.

Pull Down Menus Pulldown Menus are extremely easy to use. First, click on the down arrow located to the left of the "Go!" button. This will open all links available (this is why this type of navigation is called a pulldown menu). Second, put your mouse over and click on the link title of your choice. In most browsers, this will highlight (change the background of your link to blue) your choice link. Finally, click on Go!. Security Information Depending on your browser settings, you may now get a window entitled "Security Information". This is a generic warning which is built into your browser. It is there to remind you to use caution when sending personal (private) information over the Internet using this technology. Since the information you are sending when you click on Go! is not of a private nature, rather, it is a request for a document, it is safe to click on Continue. Once you clicked on Continue the browser will link to the page you have chosen from the pulldown menu.

Second level pages can be identified by their title text graphic located in the header and below the primary level page name. All secondary pages have a title in yellow type. For example, suppose you went to the Surf the Internet (primary) WWW Links (secondary) section, the word WWW Links (in yellow) is located below this section's primary title, which is Surf the Internet (in white).

Please note that not all sections in this web site have a second level. A good example of such a section is the SiteMap. Also, some sections, although having third level pages, do not have secondary pages. Examples of such sections are the What's New section, Guestbook and Postcard Center.

Explaining Second & Third Level Web Pages

Whenever possible, Third Level web pages can be accessed from text links located in a box with a grey background, just below the header and to the right of the sidebar. Whenever the third level page title is not obvious, we inserted a title band. Therefore, most third level pages can be identified by their title located in a coloured band just below the third level text link box. For example, suppose you had gone to the Surf the Net (primary) WWW Links (secondary) Sports (third level) section, the title Sports is located in the red band (see figure above). The colour of this band varies between sections and does not have any meaning other than to visually help in differentiating web pages.

There is only one section in this web site where it was not practical to create a third level text link box because of the large number of third level pages in that section. This was the Religious section under Things to See & Do. Therefore, the easiest way to navigate this section is to use the Back button of your browser.

Finally, should you get lost, always remember that you can also navigate this web site using the SiteMap. Also, you can always return to the Main/Home Page by clicking on the term: "CambridgeWeb.Net".

Additional Notes:

  • The Cambridge Humane Society, Galleries and Library sections grew so large that their own web sites were created. As we are great believers in tradition, the links to them remained, however, under assault from the Head librarian, the city and their lawyers we have, as of May 22, 2000, closed our Library and our Gallery sites down.
  • The look of the page may vary depending on the version and type of browser you use. The examples shown above were created using Netscape Communicator (Version 4).
