Windows 7: Hyperlink syntax to open a parent site and then child site

Hyperlink syntax to open a parent site and then child site

I may not have this under the correct section and please keep in mind that I am not a programmer but here goes.

I am trying to add a hyperlink in Outlook 2007 signature file that will open a child site, but the child site seems to need some personalized information in the cache that comes from opening a parent site first:

Parent site: http://www.mywildtree.com/chad/
Child Site: http://www.mywildtree.com/shop/catalog.aspx

When the child site is opened directly (without opening parent first) it loads forever. The parent site does not require any authenication it just has to be opened first and then the child site operates correctly.

Is there a simple way to have one hyperlink either a) open two sites one after the other in the same window? or b) open the childsite with a parent site dependancy (tag?, bookmark?) on the hyperlink?

I have been on google searching all afternoon and haven't had any luck yet so any help is appreciated.

Thank you

Welcome to Seven Forums chadseeg. The Shop Now link shows as actually being http://www.mywildtree.com/shop/preshop.aspx, and this appears to redirect to http://www.mywildtree.com/shop/catalog.aspx.

Firefox blames the redirection

It looks like the script on the page is written to specifically prevent going directly to the shopping catalog without going through the home page. I'm not a webmaster, so I am unsure if this is intentional or not. A Guy

Thanks for the welcome.

Yes, the way it works is that the actual child site ("Shop" option on the parent page) gets its association to the referring representative (.../chad) from being opened from the parent page "shop" option. I am trying to create a hyperlink button to go straight to the child page but it must go there with the referring representative (.../chad) information which is normally created by openning the parent page first.

Roncerr,
Thanks for the reply.

I think if you clear your IE cache and try opening the child site (.../chad) first then it will not work, as it needs the parent site information created by opening it first.

Thanks

Correct (except that chad is not the child). I did not even have to clear the cache, just close IE completely, because I have the option set to get the latest version of the page. Perhaps there is a way to open and close the first link before opening the second.

Yes, that is what I am hoping for is that there is a way to open the first site and then the second with one hyperlink.

Thanks
