New Jersey Scuba Diving
Navigating This Website
NJScuba.net has hundreds of pages containing thousands of entries. Navigating all this can be a daunting task. The main sections are always arrayed in the white Tab on the left. Selecting one takes you to an intro page for that section. The Tab also contains links for the Table of Contents for that section. Below the Tab are various other links, for special pages or sub-sections. The Tab has one special feature: as you scroll down the often very long pages in this site, it follows you.
If you are not severely limited on screen space, I strongly suggest that you click "Load Sidebar", which will load the Table of Contents in a Sidebar at the left. The Sidebar duplicates the Table of Contents, with the advantage that it is always visible - no jumping back and forth. At the top of the Sidebar is a drop-down menu that duplicated the white tab. The Sidebar is independently scrollable, and you can open and close it whenever you like without losing your place.
In addition to the Tab and Sidebar, many of the gray header bars contain a useful link at the upper right. Most often, this is to the chart page that encloses the current location. This is something like zooming out. You'll see.
