Are you an author of web pages and you don't want your links to die? Here is a really easy way to achieve just that:
- Robustify your links by adding HTML elements as explained in the Robustifying Links document.
- You can read about the motivations for using Robust Links here.
- The result will be that each link is augmented with the ability to see the linked resource as it was at or around the time the link was created. This is achieved by resolving links using the Memento Time Travel infrastructure that aggregates web archives from around the world. At any time, even when a link breaks, the Robust Link will lead to archived content.
Add Robust Links To Your Webpages
Simply append the following lines to the
<head> section of your HTML source:
Current version of page: Clicking this menu item will take you to the original url provided in the
Version archived on <date>: Clicking this menu item will redirect you to the memento url provided in the
data-versiondateattribute along with the original url and redirect you to the closest memento around that datetime using the Memento Time Travel service.
