- make new link noticable [4 Updates]
- theodore <firstname.lastname@example.org> Mar 14 01:02PM +0200
i have a website. On the bottom there is something like a sitemap.
In this sitemap i added a new link ( to a pdf file ). That new link is
So i want the user when he visits my site to notice it. So i thought
of putting a gif image
next to the link that flashes "new" and also to put a sentence at the
top right corner of the
page that slides from right to left inside a 300px width box.
Do you have any other idea of how can i make the user notice the new
link in a nice and discreet way?
Any idea would be helpful.

Wow that sounds horrible! the marquee tag will give you the scrolling text
and the blink tag will save you a gif! *blurgh* Sorry I was just sick ;-)
If you want somebody to notice a link make it a nice bold colour. It's
called an action button see here:
Hope that helps you.

Ahhh, blinking drives me crazy. Very old fashioned and home-made and
it's common for many designers to steer their clients away from *just
about* anything that moves or blinks.
It would be helpful if you'd provide a link to the page. We have no idea
what it looks like so it's hard to give suggestions without the visual.

Yes you are right. Maybe an action button is something that should
work. Although the design of the site is not that good still this is a
The site is down these days, there is no link. I am not the one that
is developing the site so i don't know what is wrong with their
server(they host it), but he asked me if i had any idea of how to make
the link noticeable.
i'll try with the action button. I think i have an idea from the link
that you provided.
