What you are looking for is a navigation for your website. There are several methods offered by the blue voda website builder.

Check your tool bars, for navigation and the new insert text menu, with both of these you insert the links for all of your other pages ... It is a nice idea to build your main look of your page, figure out all the pages it will contain, insert your navigation menu (style of your choice) have things all set on that page, and then save that page as "beginning page" and then every page you build, start with that page, add the content for your new page and save it by that name ... all of the links will be applied and the same style on all of your pages ... do you know what I mean?

Don't forget to watch the tutorials for linking and

have fun & Good Luck!!

Glad you love it ... and you sound excited, good for you ....

Well you can use the gif images and insert them, and link each one to your next page, you can also try and duplicate the look of the menu by using the text menu in the builder. Not sure if they come in a string like that, you might have to chop them up in photoshop or something ... it can be done ...

I also believe by the look of your referral site, this site is php designed, now you can do that, and I believe that is where that style menu would come in, and there are threads on doing so in this forum. General Navel is an expert in this area and reading his posts about doing so is the best advice I could give you.

I've never used that myself, but I am pretty certain it is a script, css ...

check under the php part of the forum ... you will get an idea of how all this comes together ....

I do believe you can google as well for css scripts and you may find a plce that will give you the coding for a nav menu like that ....

As you can tell, I'm not the best to ask, so I am just trying to point in the direction of where further knowledge can be gained, you seem really keen and I believe you will accomplish your task ....
