Directly from a Navigation Bar?  Not easily.  Unless you are using the "Back and Next" feature.

You can use cookies or you could try this script (it's CGI and only runs on UNIX)

If you don't have a UNIX server, post here and I'll see what I can find for a Win platform

Again stelogic...that is just one of the things that is not possible in the Navigation view.

You would have to do it in the HTML.

Sorry for bad news once again.  8-(

FYI - it is customary to reply to someones comments - even if it is just to say, as you did above that you don't thing the Expert understands what you are trying to do.

Perhaps you would like to clarify it.

As I understand it, you are working in NAVIGATION view and you would like to designate a "child" page which is linked from EVERY page on the end of above levels....in other words you want the "lines" in nav view to point to this last page.

As I said...this is NOT POSSIBLE.  Navigation view does not have this capability.  However you could script it as I have indicated above with the "Good-bye" page.

If this is not what you are trying to do, please clarify.

stelogic, I just want to throw in here that, to my knowledge, ClassyLinks is the best FP person we've got. If there are better ones, they must not frequent the site too often. Not trying to bully you or anything. Just throwing my opinion out there. If you haven't at least tried what she's given, you ought to. IMHO.

Steve....I cannot help you unless you reply to my comments.  I have replied to you everytime you have asked, it would be nice to get the same consideration.

If you still think I don't understand what you are trying to do then it is up to you to explain it further.  Obviously no other Experts have any suggestions based on your current wording of the question, so leaving it open without further comment is not productive.

It's ok....I'm sorry if I was harsh...guess I've just been burned too many times by people who just refuse to answer a question because the answer they get is "what you are trying to do is impossible".

Can you close the question now??

and i hate the "it's impossible" answer cos i've heard it so many times then either with help in here or on my own i have found a way to do it and because someone has been rushing me to close the question either i cant post the solution or noone else has chance to tell me .. but i will close it now as you asked ..

jesus i wish i could be that bossy and not feel bad about it !

Hello stelogic,

I understand that the answer to this question, "it can't be done" is not what you would have wanted to hear.

However, if it is the correct answer (as seems to be the case), the expert who gave it should be rewarded for telling you.

Of course it is reasonable of you to say that you wanted a solution to your problem, and you never got one.

So I suggest the following. Let me reduce the points of this question, say, to 20. Then you can accept ClassyLinks' answer with an "A" (I'm suggesting an "A" because a grade should reflect the accuracy of an answer, not how much you like it).

Does that sound like an acceptable solution to the situation?

Regards

I have to jump in...(probably not a wise choice)

If I read this correctly, you're trying to force EVERY PAGE in your site to link to a specific page that will come up when they leave.

This is NOT going to happen. There's no way you can know they've left the site until they're at another page, unless you have a link that goes off your site.

You CANNOT funnel everybody through an 'exit' -- there is no such thing.

If I've misunderstood what you're trying to do, I'm sorry, but that's they way I read it.
