What is a Webring?   Click on the link to find out what's it's all about!


Briefly, it's simply a way of linking together sites with a similar interest.  If people visit one of the sites in the ring, they can click on the links at the bottom of the site's page, to visit other sites in the ring.   It should increase traffic to all the member sites, and help visitors to find the information they are looking for.

If you have a mental health related website, based in the UK - then please consider joining the Mental Health UK  ring  from here.  


After you've joined the ring,  you must put the ring code fragment on your home page. You will receive the customized code via e-mail shortly after filling out the form.



Yahoo has just taken over "Webring" and have made changes to the system.  The "old" system still works, and the "old" Webring links are what you see below (click here for the old html code).  I have had to change the joining instructions and link, so that you will be taken to the new Yahoo Webring Add Site Form.  Yahoo have supplied this information, with Q & As about the new system - existing members should read!


The old Webring links look like this:

Below is what the new Nav Bar links   look like for new members - and for existing members if they wish to change to the new Webring Navigation Bar.  Although this new system is going to take some getting used to, for me anyway, I have to concede that the Navigation Bar (once I worked out how to get it) is simpler to deal with.  Eventually, I suspect that Yahoo! Webring will ask us all to upgrade to the new Navigation Bar, which involves registering for a Yahoo ID.  You can still use the logo to put above the Nav Bar, by right clicking on the image, and copy and pasting into your web page.



Do not copy the Nav Bar from here.   You must obtain the correct code (with YOUR site details) from the "My Rings" page at Yahoo! Webring (You'll need to log in)

Yahoo Information, with Q & As about the new system

I received the following, in e-mail, from Yahoo!

 Great news -- WebRing is integrating with Yahoo! and is now part of the
 Yahoo! network. The Yahoo! WebRing system has a new user interface, new
 features, and a simplified Ring management system. The new system is
 streamlined and extremely efficient.
 We will launch the new Yahoo! WebRing system on Tuesday, September 5,
 2000 at 11:00 a.m. PST. The WebRing system will be closed to managing
 Rings and editing sites for 24 hours prior to launch. All links on the
 existing WebRing system will continue to work during this period.
 Here's the scoop:
 * All Ringmasters and members need to sign up for a free Yahoo! ID (you
 only need one.)
 * The server-side navigation bar is here!  It's a cool new feature but
 is not required for existing WebRings; HTML fragments will continue to
 work for now.
 * Existing Join pages will also continue to work for now.  New members
 will be prompted to sign up for a Yahoo! ID before joining.
 * After you associate your Ring with your Yahoo! ID and categorize it in
 the new system, your Ring will be listed in the new Yahoo! WebRing
 * Ring locking has been eliminated!
 * The Ring Helpers management feature is still in development.
 Currently, you will not be able to work with a Ring Helper in the new

 Yahoo! WebRing Questions and Answers:
 Q:  How do I get started with the new Yahoo! WebRing system?
 A:  Migration to the new system is easy. Just sign up for a Yahoo! ID,
 and then associate your Ring and site with it. If you don't have a
 Yahoo! ID yet or are not logged in to Yahoo!, the system will ask you to
 sign up for one or log in.
 Q:  Why do I need a Yahoo! ID?
 A:  The new system is automated to make Ring management and navigation
 easier. The Yahoo! ID is key to simplifying the system and replaces the
 old, difficult-to-remember passwords and Ring IDs.
 RingMasters need a Yahoo! ID to edit their sites and manage their Rings
 in the new system. All changes to your Rings or sites must be made in
 the new system.
 Note: You can associate all your Rings and sites with just one Yahoo!
 Q:  How do I sign up for a Yahoo! ID?
 A:  Sign up for a Yahoo! ID by going directly to the Yahoo! WebRing front
 page.  In the yellow box titled "Current WebRing Users," click the "Sign
 In Here!" link. The next page will prompt you to sign up for a Yahoo! ID
 or log in if you already have one.
 If you bookmarked the WebRing login page, the system will automatically
 lead you through the steps of associating your Ring and site. If you've
 forgotten your Ring or site ID, use the links provided, and we'll email
 the information to you.
 Q:  How do I list my Ring in the Yahoo! WebRing Directory?
 A:  After you associate your Ring with your Yahoo! ID, you will be
 prompted to categorize your Ring in the new directory. Just follow the
 simple steps to include your Ring in the appropriate category. Only
 Rings registered with the new system will be included in the Yahoo!
 WebRing directory. The old RingWorld directory will no longer push
 traffic to your Ring or site.
 Q:  What about my HTML fragment?
 A:  Your HTML fragment will continue to work for now. Your Ring will
 still be intact and will include all existing members.
 Q:  What happened to my Ring Helper?
 A:  The Ring Helpers management tool is still in development. Assigning
 Helpers and allowing existing Helpers to access Ring management is not
 possible at this time.
 Q:  Will my old join page still work?
 A:  The old join pages will continue to work for now. The system will
 require new members to sign up for a Yahoo! ID before joining.
 Q:  What is the server-side navigation bar?
 A:  The server-side navigation bar simplifies the installation of the
 HTML code. Members can just copy and paste the code onto their page.
 Existing WebRing members and RingMasters are not required to use the new
 navigation bar, but we think you'll want to try it. It's customizable
 and really simplifies Ring management.
 Q:  What happened to Ring locking?
 A:  Locked Rings were frustrating and wasted time. In the new system, we
 have completely eliminated Ring locking. Now accessing the Ring is
 easier, faster, and more fun!
 Q:  What else is new?
 A:  A handy new page called "My Rings" lists all the Rings you mange and
 belong to. The "Email Members" management tool allows you to send email
 to all of your Ring members in one simple step. And it's easier than
 ever to invite people to join you Ring, customize your Ring Hub page,
 manage members, and process new sites.
 Q:  Need more help?
 A:  Help links are included on every page. All features and requirements
 of the new system are explained in the Help section.
 We are very excited about the new WebRing system and think you will be
 too. As always, we appreciate your input and feedback. Just email us at
 [email protected].
 Thanks for your ongoing participation in Yahoo! WebRing, and stayed
 tuned -- more new features and tool are on the way.
 The Yahoo! WebRing Team

You will receive a customised code by e-mail after you have completed the above form.  If you are unable to use that code, then use the one below - but be sure to replace the text in red with your site information:  Your e-mail address, your site or own name,  and your site ID number.   You will receive your site ID in an e-mail.

The green section of the code relates to the logo.  You will need to right click on the Mental Health UK Webring  logo image above, copy and save as "ringlogo.gif" - into the same directory as your home page (where you will insert the code).
