Directory Drill Down

Many websites have some form of hyperlink navigation as you drill down further into the site.  Many times the scheme that the drilldown follows is the directory path of the site.  If this is how our site is structured you may benefit from this example that can be placed on any asp document.  Utilizing two server variables (http_host and script_name) and splitting the script_name by the "/" delimiter you can effortlessly add hyperlinks to all the parent directories in your web.

'--remove the -1 if you wish to display the name of the page

<a href="<%= host %>">
