How to Link to Fox Cities Online
 

We encourage any organization or individual to link to Fox Cities Online from their websites. Websites hosted by Fox Cities Online are required to display our logo and link back. If you decide to do so, here are some pointers.

General Information

Our URL is http://www.focol.org/

You may feel free to include a copy of our page logo with your link if you wish.

You can copy the logo from the top of this page by right-clicking on the image and then choosing "Save Picture as" from the menu that appears.

You can also link directly to our copy of the logo by using coding such as the following:

<a href="http://www.focol.org/"><img src="http://www.focol.org/images/littlogo.gif" alt="Fox Cities Online Logo" width="250" height="40" border="0" /></a>

Your Link will look like this:

This coding will display a copy of our logo without you having to store it on your own site, and if we change our logo you will always be displaying the current version. We would prefer that you use this option.

Adding FOCOL Search Tools to your Site

Another possibility is to add a Fox Cities Online search to your own website like this:

<form method="post" action="http://www.focol.org/files/search.asp">
<p><b>Search FOCOL:</b>
<input name="txtSearchString" size="30" />
<input type="submit" value="Search" name="submit" />
<input type="reset" value="Clear" name="reset" />
</p>
< /form>

This will give you a search box like the one below:

Search FOCOL:

or this:

<form method="post" action="http://www.focol.org/files/search.asp">
<blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p name="searchCat" size="1">
<select name="searchCat" size="1">
<option value="" selected="selected">FOCOL by category</option>
<option>All</option>
<option>Arts</option>
<option>Business</option>
<option value="Calendars">Calendars of Events</option>
<option value="Churches">Churches</option>
<option value="Clubs Organizations">Clubs & Organizations</option>
<option value="Community">Community Info</option>
<option>Education</option>
<option>Government</option>
<option>Health</option>
<option>Human Services</option>
<option>Libraries</option>
<option>Media</option>
<option value="Recreation Entertainment">Recreation</option>
</select>
<input type="submit" value="Search" name="submit2" />
<input type="reset" value="Clear" name="reset2" />
</p>
</blockquote>
</blockquote>
< /form>

Which will give you a searchbox with a pull down menu like this:

You can copy the entire form coding from this page and use it on yours. If you aren't sure how, feel free to contact us.

FOCOL Active Desktop

We have also created an Active Desktop page that you can use if you would like to have Fox Cities Online always available on your desktop. Unfortunately, these instructions only work on Windows XP. We have been told that this page also makes a good link to the FOCOL directory from some mobile devices.

Right-click anywhere on your desktop

Choose "Properties"- "Desktop"- "Customize Desktop"- "Web"

Make a new desktop item. Use this URL: http://www.focol.org/FOCOLdesktop.html

Make sure that "Lock Desktop items" is unchecked

You should see the page on your desktop, where you can resize it and move it to the location you prefer. On my desktop it looks like this:
