Adding a site to the ring (print this page for reference):

Please read this carefully

  • If you are not familiar with either the web ring concept or with HTML programming, please do not try to add your site to the ring. Ask a friend or colleague for help. We are unable to provide individual assistance.
  • Membership of the ring requires the addition of some HTML code to the page you want to register. If you do not like the sound of this stop now.
  • If you complete the steps below and then find that your site has not been added, it is for one of two reasons: 1. Your site has little or nothing to do with classical music or 2. You made an error during the registration process. Either way, we cannot enter individual correspondence. Try registering again.
  • Frames. If your home page uses frames, please add the code to, and register one of the frames and not the frameset file.
  1. Go to http://nav.webring.yahoo.com/hub?ring=classicalring&list
  2. Click 'Join This Ring'
  3. If you already have a Yahoo! ID, login. Alternatively, you will need to sign up for one (it only takes a few minutes).
  4. Once logged in, Click 'Join Ring'. This will take you to the application form.
  5. Fill in the form as specified, and click 'Submit'. NB: The address you give (URL) MUST be the page that you will paste the code into: e.g. if you want to put the code on the links page of your site, you must specify this page in the URL field.
  6. This will take you to a final confirmation screen. When you are happy with the details, click 'Submit' again.
  7. You will then see a 'Confirmation - Application Sent' screen. You will receive an email telling you that your site has been submitted, that the RingMaster has been notified and that a decision on your site will be made soon. PRINT OUT THIS EMAIL: you will need it later! The email also gives details of how to install the server-side Navigation Bar (SSNB) on your site. IGNORE THIS!! There are 2 ways of adding code to your ring: one is the SSNB, and the other is the HTML code shown in the example above. This ring prefers that members use the HTML code.
  8. To generate the HTML code launch the OrchestraNet Link Generator

Enter your Site ID in the box and click 'Generate'. Your Site ID is contained within the confirmation email that you so conscientiously printed out earlier. It is contained within the link given to obtain the SSNB, e.g.:

    "http://edit.webring.yahoo.com/cgi-bin/wrman?ring=classicalring&id=1533…."

    In this example, the site ID would be 1533.

  1. Paste the code into the page you specified on your application form.
  2. Once you have [1] submitted your site as described above, and [2] added the HTML fragment to the page you specified, you will be notified of the decision of the Ring Master by email.

Please note that The Classical Music Web Ring is intended for sites with a significant classical music content only.

Please, Please, Please, print out and follow these instructions carefully to avoid errors.
Once you have: [1] submitted your information using the form on this page and [2] added a small piece of html to the page you registered, your site will be visited by our spider and if the required HTML code is detected, your site will be added to the web ring within 48 hours.
To avoid design incompatibility and to limit increased download times, the HTML code you will need to add to your page is text based.
