Spice up the front page...
« on: March 10, 2005, 01:03:21 AM »
Well I had a bunch of new pics for the front page, unfortunately, my email program ate them..

I need new fresh ones..

If you want to put your name, and where it was taken, etc, you can stick it in the picture with a photo editor.  Try and keep it clean looking though. if it looks like crap, I will not use it. Drawings are cool as well.

Also, try and keep it bike related.

I have not added them, it takes some work, so I am waiting for a good group to do.

Sheep how about fixing the urls so they don't force the links to open in new pages. For example the forums link is

Code: [Select]
<a href=&quot;http://bikeguide.org/forums/&quot;>forums</a>

instead use

Code: [Select]
forums

Hey Sheep. Just paste this in and then upload all the photos into a folder on the server. Then just point it at the right folder. The script will count the photos in the folder and then will just randomly show one of them when the page is loaded.

I doesn't open in a new window, and your coding is wrong.
A target reference dictates if it opens in a new window, NOT using the full url.

Code: [Select]
Target=_blank(or similar code) will open a  new window.

All you did was shorten the URL. Not sure why yours is opening in a new window, but it shouldn't.


The shortcuts on the links page was causing some issues but I fixed that yesterday.
