Looking for solution to a historyu style menu you often see
where it shows linked paths to where you came from..

ie.
home>dynamic drive index>Navigation>text
with each previous selection linkable

any takers?

The way DD does it on their scripts library pages is just to write it in as HTML. I mean if you know where the user is coming from and where he is, as one often does, you can just write it in. Try jumping to this page:

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/tabcontent.htm

I bet the menu will not show any reference to this page but rather the expected history chain, had you gotten there from the home page.

Yep, for DD, it's just static HTML that's used for the bread crumb menu. There isn't a script per say that just creates a bread crumb for you. If your site is dynamic based such as PHP, it's a matter of including some code to determine the current location of the page relative to the site and display a bread crumb. But that's specific to how the site was created in the first place.
