I'm interested in building an online directory, but I have no idea where to start. Can anyone recommend any how-to's, software, or web resources?

What type of online directory are you tyring to come up with.
Would it be a links Directory with links to different pages on the Internet?
I have a Links page on my site at

Take a look and see if that is what you would like.

RE: Your links directory;
Wow it's been a long time since you've been back.
Don't be such a stranger!!!

Anyway, there's tons of ways that you can do this. I've been working on a directory that is written in Java that is going to be pretty cute when it gets finished.

It is actually a folding, nested and organized list of links that resembles the windows folder view. You can click a catagory, or main topic like the folders listed in the left frame of this page, and open sub-catagories with listings under each topic to unlimited levels.

You can see a preview by Clicking here.

Just click on where it says "Wayne's Worlds" and you'll get an idea what I'm doing. Like I said it's far from finished yet but, I've got the basic structure of the script in place and all thats left is to build it and that just takes a little time.

Nice to have you back! :)

Also, I like your navigation menu... very nice. Is that mostly Java, Javascript, or DHTML?
