Jump menus

A jump menu is a pop-up menu in a document, visible to your site visitors, listing options that link to documents or files. You can create links to documents in your website, links to documents on other websites, e-mail links, links to graphics, or links to any file type that can be opened in a browser.

A jump menu can contain three basic components:

  • (Optional) A menu selection prompt, such as a category description for the menu items, or instructions, such as "Choose one:"
  • (Required) A list of linked menu items: a user selects an option and a linked document or file opens.
  • (Optional) A Go button.
