Banner Sharing and such....

Post by Notorious Chicka » Tue Mar 07, 2017 5:00 am

Let's share and advertise each other!

MandaMarie asked for my banner for her home page and I was thinking we should take her idea and offer up our code for additional marketing opportunities!


Here is one of mine to get you started...

Code: Select all

Here is another optional banner for PPC. This is just a custom one I made for my homepage for a specific section. I do have plans on updating it once the forum logo changes. If interested I can make these however anyone wishes them to be made, so, request yours if you would rather something more custom. Oh, did I mention, I will do them for FREE!?!?!

Dimensions are 700X292

I've added yall's banners to my IMVU homepage . .

@MandaMarie even though we seem to have fixed some issues with your coding I'm guessing here -
IMVU doesn't like your host as they still kept coming up blank at different times . . That is in IE
and not Mozilla FireFox , anyways I just re-uploaded em to a more reliable (?) host to fix the issue .

I'll edit in the links in a just a moment ( jam ) in case you need em .

Thanks, Bot, I will need to look into Imgur and maybe using something different. My homepage has always been hosted there for a few reasons, one being they allow larger than 1024 images to be used and displayed without resizing. But I have noticed before that even on my homepage it has loaded that X before. I wonder if the problem lies in IMVU or Imgur. Any ideas on a site that will allow larger than 1024 images?

I don't like to change people to be honest be yourself because as soon as I tell you to do something else those sites may change then
you end up hating me for it lol . . I don't know if its imvu or moreso Inturdnet Explorewhore in combination with IMVU because again
it works fine with Mozilla Firefox .

But since you asked -

I used to like to host my pics on myspace but we all know how that went . .
myspace flushing itself down the toilet due to changes hmm remind ya'll of any one else ?

I really like radikal http://radikal.ru/ but it will be hard to understand unless you read Russian .
( but even if you don't its not too hard to figure out though it does have pop ups now ^,.^~!! grrr )
the reason I like radikal is it being Russian is funny the bad rap they get for not having freedom because
you can upload AP pics there and they don't care . Another for instance is there is the Russian facebook
VK , it has music and videos and all kindsa freedom fakebook used to have or never had . oh and with
radikal I've had pics up there for 10 years more or less and they are still there . Also you don't need to
sign up for an account . . Its just click and go without signing in etc etc .

I'd suggest you set up like Notorious and Lizzie did above photobucket accounts or imageshack is o k too .
As for resizing most image hosts will have a ticker option to not resize during upload .

of course you can always use your IMVU photo album too . .
The only thing to consider is like IMVU sometimes they change things ,
so that may force you to have to revamp all your pic links . It probably
wont happen though i'm just paranoid like that .

Well, one of the reasons for the change is this. Some reason when I clean my computer and empty all my cache's the images I have on Imgur will not show up in Chrome, until I go in and manually load the image. After that it show's fine. What I am worried about is that when someone else uses Chrome to view my page, they are seeing everything broken, as they do not have an option to just go into Imgur to manually load everything. Currently, I am trying out Flikr. I guess gonna see how that goes. :roll:

imgur is a big issue for me.

I have to load the link before it shows up - so i tend to move past pics from that host.

Thankies Bot, I really have issues with coding, still learning and the BBC code thing just confuses me but thankies for hosting mine, if I can figure out how to add yours to my HomePage I will do so, I managed to get Notorious's on but having issues with others..sometimes it works, other times it just says "Hell no"..temperamental things these codes ^^ I can however show my latest banner here which is different to my signature.. feel free to grab it if you know how to do so just from the image alone, if you can.. You're a whole cookie jar smarter than I am xD

I edited my post above to show you how to put code in here for the BBC thingy . .
Now on your homepage you will have to use HTML not BBC as that's only for forums ,
with MandaMarie's code it was a bit off so that maybe an issue ,
all though we worked on that to fix it also was an issue with her image host and IMVU not working .
Anyway if you need any help don't hesitate to ask me .

As for my banner thanks for asking but I don't really sell much and more make things for myself
and friends . Also I set my prices kinda high just so they don't sell because I like to keep it limited to a certain type of user
who buys from me . While of course I do rely on sales for credits my stuff doesn't really sell anymore very much to a grrly market
being mostly video game related . Anyways I may make a new banner but for now no worries and again very much appreciated <3

What you do to add a banner or image such as the banner you posted to replace the other with is this .

Right mouse button click it and select - Properties -
In that line you will see the URL - address it lives at -
if you right click in the address line it shows there - the h t t p :
part then click select all it will highlight that address .
( Or you can simply left click and drag your mouse from one end or the other to highlight it )
Then right click that highlighted area and copy it will be the
link to put in for the banner/pic location .
