Crohn’s-Colitis Webring


A Crohn’s and colitis “web ring” has been established on the Internet. What is a web ring? It is the easiest way for Internet surfers to navigate the web. Websites covering the same topic band together and link their sites to one another. This allows visitors to reach them quickly and easily. When navigating a topic on the Internet, web ring navigation links are usually found at the bottom of the page. Visitors can move through the ring in any direction, going to the next five sites related to the topic, the next site, or the previous site. They can also review all the sites that are members of the ring.
