how to make a navigation with <select>?

Hey guys,

 

I'm trying to make a selection menu that when a selection is made, will redirect to another page, and each option acts as a link.

 

Would anyone be able to explain the easiest way to do so or point me in the right direction?

 

Javascript would be a right direction for that.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Select a site</title>
</head>

<body>
<script language="javascript">

function func()
{
var i = document.myform.myselect.selectedIndex;
var site = document.myform.myselect.options[i].value;
window.location.assign(site);
}
</script>

<form name="myform">
<select name="myselect">
<option value="http://www.somesite.com">somesite.com</option>
<option value="http://www.anothersite.com">anothersite.com</option>
</select>
<input type="button" value="go to the selected site" onclick="func();" />
</form>

</body>
</html>

 

I believe that should do it. You can tweak it to your preference
