'Cause I got tired of lookin' at 'em

I finally got around to updating some of my rotating banner images last weekend. In case you want to see the retired ones, you can click here:

Retired Banner Images

Update: For readers unable to see any images (e.g. some Firefox users):

That was fun to see the imagecodedump blog, since I never actually see your banner images. Yes, a firefox user.

I thought that was fixed. I think Jim uses Firefox and can see the images now...maybe you have an older version?

(Of course, if I knew how to fix the code so they'd show up in all versions, I would.)

Maybe I should post all of the images instead of just the retired ones. Easy enough.

Stan, was it easy to put "pictures" on your banner?
Is that something I could do on my blog?

yeah, how DO you DO it?

It's a little bit of Javascript code that I added to the template. I looked for the same type of code used for rotating ad banners.

I don't remember where I found my code, but I think this page has almost the exact same code. Just put it somewhere in the <body> section of your template; you might have to experiment to find exactly where to put the code.

To avoid messing up your original blog, I strongly suggest creating a test blog and copying all of your current template over to it, and creating a few test posts, so that you have a template to experiment with. (See, having multiple blogs comes in handy!)

"If you want to add more banners, just copy the whole if (ad==?){...}, paste it after the fourth if(ad==4){...} statement and replace the ? with 5 and so on."

 

Okay, now it's your turn | Home
