Join the Webring

Step 1: Submit Your Site To The African Music Web ring Queue

To submit a site for evaluation click here 
Make sure the page URL you supply for evaluation is where you will be locating the web ring banner/code. 

Step 2: Add the HTML Code & Graphics

2.1 YAHOO Server Side Navigation Bar (SSNB). The easiest is to put the code that Yahoo provides on your site. See Yahoo's Help Page. The code looks like this:

<script language="javascript" src=";y=[YAHOO!ID]&amp;u=[17-DIGIT#]"></script>

If you are having problems this is what it all means:
bulletReplace [YAHOO!ID] with the ID used to submit to this ring.
bulletGo to and locate your ring's title in the left column.
bulletClick your site's title in the MIDDLE column.
bulletThen select "get navigation bar" from the left column.
bulletA long URL will appear in the location/address bar on their browser. Locate urlid=[17-DIGIT_U_NUMBER]&page and copy ONLY that 17-digit number from the location window then paste it into the above code in place of [17-DIGIT#]
bulletTake that code and paste it onto your site. You should now see the navbar for this ring and all others to which you submitted the same URL with that Y!ID.

2.2 Customized HTML. If you wish to use the customized code you will need the site ID number assigned to you by the ring. You'll see it in the application confirmation email. In the first part of the long URL given to you, look for: The number represented above in red is your site ID number, make note of it. Alternatively, install the Yahoo SSNB and when it is up and running on your page mouse over the next or prev buttons and in your browsers lower left hand corner you should see the command that it executes, which will be a line as indicated above.

2.2.1 Alternative HTML1.
