How to click on a link from the header and then go back with HTML, Javascript and CSS? [closed]

Tags: javascript,html,css

Problem :

To start with, my website have a header with different symbols that I will link up too.

Here are the steps I want to complete:

  1. Click on a specific buttom inside the header "Contacts" from "home".
  2. Go to "Contacts"
  3. Then click back to "home" from "Contacts".

The problem I get is that the navigation bar must be copied into every file I link up too. How can I prevent this?

I do not know how to code this, can someone please help me?

Solution :

If you are only willing to use html, css & javascript to fix it, then maybe you can achieve that by using angularjs which is a javascript framework and can solve your problem. You create your index.html with all the navigation links and load the external links/ html files in your index.html I created this as an example for you:

<body ng-app="NavigationMenu">
    <div class="container" ng-controller="NavigationController">
        <ul class="nav-menu">
            <li ng-repeat="item in navigationItems"
        <div class="content">
            <div ng-include="currentPage"></div>
    <script type="text/ng-template" id="your-first-html-file.html">
        <h4>About us</h4>

            <li>some link</li>
            <li>some link</li>
    <script type="text/ng-template" id="your-third-html-file.html">
        <p>John Doe</p>
        <p>Long Avenue</p>


angular.module('NavigationMenu', [])
.controller('NavigationController', ['$scope', function ($scope) {
    $scope.navigationItems = [{
        name: 'About us',
        url: 'your-first-html-file.html'
        name: 'Links',
        url: 'your-second-html-file.html'
        name: 'Contact',
        url: 'your-third-html-file.html'

    $scope.currentPage = 'your-first-html-file.html';

    $scope.onItemClick = function (item) {
        $scope.currentPage = item.url;

    $scope.isActivePage = function (pageUrl) {
        return pageUrl == $scope.currentPage;
