Well, Linkvertise.org

Well, saszoo convinced me to showcase it (he just doesn't know it yet).. This uses cutenews.ru and mysql (to be sure that my database never disappears!) The bids are actually just comments. The thing that slows down the main page is that it has 40 includes on it. 1 for each spot. The color is adjusted using css and two templates. One template uses blue links, the other uses green links. Then in each include I picked which color I wanted by specifying which $template. I think it came out nice. I hope people agree and I can get some traffic to it. I also love how the search engine works. The search bar is up there in an iframe and when you search it opens a new page below. I modified search.php to target="_top" and action="../search.php" and on ../search.php it includes admin/blanksearch.php. I erased the search HTML code from search.php and resaved it as blanksearch.php and put it in the cutenews root directory. That way when it searches it pulls the content out of blanksearch.php and doesn't show the search bar above the results.



So, without furhter.. adu.. ado.. adue? uhh.. here it is:

Very nice :D

I wish I was as creative as you when it comes to blending in CNR into new ideas. It's genious to use the comments as an auction place.

I like the design, especially the colors, they really make for a professional design.

I just wonder, and pardon me for asking, but wouldn't it be possible to have something like

Code: Select all
<div class="{alternating}"><h3><a href="{link=home/post}" class="colored">{title}</a></h3>moretemplate</div>


in active news template, and then something like this in the css-file:

Code: Select all

.cn_news_od, .cn_news_even {

width: 25%;

line-height: 3em;

padding: .5em;

float: left;

}

.cn_news_odd a.colored {

color: green;

}

.cn_news_even {

color: blue;

}



and then of course $number = 40 in the include code.



But all in all a nice site, I dig it :D

Yes, that's exactly how I had planned to do it til I realized that I didn't want to push the links off from left to right. Instead those links never move. Thanks for your kind words ;)



I think I'm going to play with comments/bids more often lol.. I like when people play with their money in my pockets.

True, I understand.

Hey can I ask you a question? Is it with java-script you are making that gray hover-effect? I thought this was not possible in IE, because IE only accept the hover selector to anchor tags only?

I'm pretty sure it's CSS here's the code:



Code: Select all
bgcolor="#FFFFFF" onmouseover="style.backgroundColor='#F7F7F7;" onmouseout="style.backgroundColor='#FFFFFF'"




Put that in a <td> and it will change colors on mouseover.

Oh haha.. I just know they work.. and they work on IE too.. well at least for me. And I'm sure they'll probably work on the new IE7 cause they had to have beefed that all up for it's competition. Hey! I got my first real bid on linkvertise.org ;) I'm about to make a whole penny.

Well, not sure if anyone noticed.. I scrapped the old linkvertise.org a few weeks ago with a much smarter, smoother, and simpler idea, look, and advertising campaign.

It gets way more traffic already.. but probably because all my sites display links from linkvertise.org now.. so people can spend $1 per text link.. and get tons of exposure cause it shows up currently on:

www.scottdizzle.com - www.tackygames.com - www.dream-library.com - www.flixrating.com - www.whatsmostpopular.com

And, of course I'm going to add it to any other domains I develop or redesign.. www.embedtube.com is next on the list :P

So, check it out: www.linkvertise.org
