Absolute and Relative Links 2 Absolute and Relative Links Absolute links define a path to files in locations other than the folders where the HTML files reside such as another server or website. It is known as an absolute address or link because the path to reach the desired file is a specific route containing the entire address and includes: the protocol, domain name, directory and the file name itself. <img src=”http://www.mywebsite.com/IT237Name/images/imgLake.jpg”/> To locate the image source, 1. The browser starts at the protocol and domain name (http://www.mywebsite.com) 2. It then locates the directory (it237) 3. Then the folder (images) 4. Lastly, it finds the file imglake.jpg.

Unformatted text preview: Relative links are more easily located because the files are all located within the same file folder structure on the same website; therefore, the browser knows where to look for the specific file. A type of shorthand can be used when designating which file to search for, the only name that is really necessary is the file name itself. <img src=”images/Lake.jpg”/> To navigate to the image source from your home page (index.html) the browser automatically navigates directly to that image because it is located within the same set of folders as the home page. Search engines do not differentiate between absolute or relative links however if a designer uses too many absolute links it may increase page download times....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
