The Royal Green Jackets Webring .........
What is a web ring?
Web rings link sites together that share a common theme, interest or cause.
Web rings use ring management software and a ring navigation panel on each participating site that enables visitors to choose various ways of getting around the ring, a typical web ring has links that take you to the N E XT, the PR E VIOUS or a RANDOM site in the ring.
Beginning at any site in the ring, a visitor can proceed through these links to visit every page in the ring, eventually returning to the site from which they started.
Every web ring also has a LIST or HUB page listing all the sites in the ring with a link to and a description of each site.
