How can I tell if a link goes to a page within this website?
In general, any internal links show up in the Related Pages box, on the right of the page. When you click on the link, this page will open in the same browser window.
Occasionally, there will be an internal link within the text of a page itself. This happens when:
the page is an introduction to a section. The links are shown as a navigation aid.
the link is an email address
the link is to a feedback form
How can I tell if a link goes to an external site?
If there are any links to external sites on a web page, they show up in the Other Websites box, on the right of the page. When you click on the link, the external website will open in the same browser window. You will need to use your browser's Back button if you wish to return to the Eastbourne Borough Council website.
Opening a link (internal or external) in a new browser window
Use the right-button of your mouse to click on the link. Select Open in New Window.
If you wish to return to this site once you have finished looking at the other site you simply need to close the new browser window.
If you discover any links to external sites which are broken or mis-directed please contact us using the Web Team Contact Form and we will correct them as soon as possible.
Wherever possible we have linked to specific pages within external sites rather than simply their home page. This 'deep linking' can mean that external links get broken more easily. This is because pages change more regularly the further into a site you get - see Broken Links above.
If, however we make reference to several pages of an external website we will simply link to that website's home page.
There are numerous links to external websites throughout this site. Eastbourne Borough Council is not responsible for the content or availability of any external sites.
