LINKING

Please note this content is from the original WoS site, and may no longer be relevant. If you have any queries, please contact us.

If you want to link to WoSC, please use the following URL:

    <https://worldofspectrum.net/>

You are specifically requested not to link to individual binaries or pictures (this is known as 'deep-linking', a practice that is generally frowned upon and widely considered bad netiquette).

If you want to link to a specific item, please link to a Sinclair Infoseek query, rather than a direct FTP download (as filenames may change).

For example, if you want to link to the game Abu Simbel Profanation, use this link:

    <A HREF="https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseek.cgi?regexp=Abu+Simbel+Profanation">

where '+' is an encoded space (same as '%20'), so don't double-encode it to '%2B' as some people do. It just won't work ;-)

Since a title can also change, when we find out it is not 100% correct, it may even be better (and it's simpler, too) to link to the query by database id, e.g.

    <A HREF="https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0000048">

for Abu Simbel Profanation. You can obtain these direct links from the entry itself, as the Full title is a self-referencing link.
Notice that links by database id can be made for any item, be it software, hardware or books.
