How do I know what page I am on?

Firstly look at the very top of your browser window and you'll find the name of the page currently open. For this page you'll notice the entry 'ablestable.co.uk | FAQ Centre | Navigational Questions' (this is sometimes followed by a file path depending on your browser). Our naming conventions allow you to trace back to our home page with ease. This may not be the way you entered the current page, but it will give you the most straight forward path to the homepage.

You'll be able to tell what area you're in by the large visual header below the main navigational buttons. The header on this page reads 'frequently asked questions'. Following the header there is some contextual information. For this page that reads 'Navigational questions answered'.

If you are on one of our main pages (our main pages are accessible using the top or bottom navigational bars) you'll notice the navigational bars have one button that displays a light coloured 'on' state.

Lastly take a look at the status bar at the base of your browser window. This will provide details about the current page. It also displays the address of any other pages you might wish to visit when you pass your mouse over a link object.

How do I revisit pages I have been to?

You may return to a page you have previously opened in several ways. If you wish to go back or forward one page, your easiest method is to use the 'Go Back' or 'Go Forward' links under the AbleStable® logo on our pages on your browser. Note that Back and Forward commands take you one step in either direction (one hyperlink). This may be a previous page or a section of a previous page. Most browsers also have a back and forward button which in contrast refer to page steps.

In many browsers you'll find a 'session history' in the URL address line (eg for IE4 and above activating the down arrow to the right of the URL line displays your session history). Simply run down the drop-down list and the browser will open at that page.

A note of caution: don't expect to access dynamic or secure pages once you have left them. If you go to another site and then decide to revisit a dynamic page at
AbleStable the original content you browsed will not be there as it was 'session sensitive'. Secure pages may often be accessed through a log-in protocol and will also be session sensitive.

How do I get to where I want to go?

We aim to publish a site with as many navigational aids as possible. You'll find standard text links, top and bottom navigational bars and context sensitive links that appear on the left side bar. Our site has been designed to enable users to get to their main interest area within two clicks.

For those wishing to make a general sweep of our site use our advance search facility.
There are two types of visitors to web sites, those who are browsing without any particular purpose in mind, and those with a specific goal. For those with a specific aim in mind the key piece of advice we can give is be very clear about what you want.

There are several ways you can search for creative professionals at AbleStable:

• Use Search to return broad results

• Use the horizontal multicoloured 'Creative Area' buttons available on our Homepage and many other pages on our site to 'drill down' through Creative Areas and their associated Disciplines. This method produces fast focussed results.

• Use our Directory Index which provides a complete list of Creative Areas, Disciplines, and Job Descriptions at AbleStable. This allows you to gain a broad picture of the kinds of Creative Areas and Disciplines available at AbleStable
.

How can I bookmark a page?

The most effective pages to bookmark would be any one of the main pages you can access from the top or bottom navigational bars (eg Home, Register, Log-in etc).

Where is your site map?

Site maps are often used to guide users around sites that are otherwise difficult to navigate. Our aim is to provide navigation that pre-empts the need for our Site Map. We acknowledge however there are those who prefer to use a text based link system.

Why am I refused access to certain pages?

Some areas at AbleStable have restricted access. These are mainly areas that Users have paid a registration fee to access. You may take our Quick Tour to gain an overview of what our site provides, or alternatively go to Clients, Members or Partners to view their prospective hub pages.
