    Hyperlink from Select Option

    Please provide the HTML code to allow this function:
    When the user selects an option from a drop-down list, I want it to redirect (hyperlink) them to a different web page.

    Please pardon my ignorance, as I am still in my infancy with all of this.

    I am trying to embed an anchor in the <option> tags, but it seems to ignore the <a>...</a> tags.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

    You cannot do it in html, you should use javascript

    solution for you

    Below you'll find the code you're looking for... as you can see, it requires Javascript:

    Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function changelink(){
    if(document.getElementById("opt1").selected==true){window.open('http://www.google.it/','_self')};
    if(document.getElementById("opt2").selected==true){window.open('http://www.google.com/','_self')};
    if(document.getElementById("opt3").selected==true){window.open('http://www.webdeveloper.com/','_self')};
    }
    </script>
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <select onchange="changelink()">
      <option id="opt0">-</option>  
      <option id="opt1">Link#1</option>
      <option id="opt2">Link#2</option>
      <option id="opt3">Link#3</option>
    </select>
     
    </body>
    </html>
    You can change _self in _blank if you want the link to open a new window.

    Thank you so much for making this clear! JavaScript is the next book I'm about to tear into, followed by PHP. I've got a long way to go, but I guess it all has to start somewhere.

    Thanks again.

    Thank you MrSnowDrop, it helped me a lot indeed.

    But I do want to know how to do the same making use of a "Go" button.
    Like, -
    opt1 Go
    opt2
    You choose either of the options and hit "Go" and it redirects to a different page for each option.
    Is that possible?If yes, how?
    Please reply.........

    Modifying MrSnowDrop's code:
    HTML Code:
    <html>
    <head>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    function changelink(){
    if(document.getElementById("opt1").selected==true){window.open('http://www.google.it/','_self')};
    if(document.getElementById("opt2").selected==true){window.open('http://www.google.com/','_self')};
    if(document.getElementById("opt3").selected==true){window.open('http://www.webdeveloper.com/','_self')};
    }
    </script>
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <select>
      <option id="opt0">-</option>  
      <option id="opt1">Link#1</option>
      <option id="opt2">Link#2</option>
      <option id="opt3">Link#3</option>
    </select> &nbsp;
    <input type="button" value="Go" onclick="changelink()" />
    
     
    </body>
    </html>
