relative link

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A hyperlink in an Web page that does not include the full path to the destination document referred to in the URL part of the link. The destination document is referenced with respect to the folder in which it is contained. The advantage to doing this is that relatively linked pages are much more immune to changes in the structure of a Web site and require less change when, for example, a folder is moved.
