How can I create a rotating quote with banner links like the one displaced in www dot shoppingbookmarks dot com ? I really need help with this. When you click on any banner, it takes you to the merchant.

hello Crystal,

Thanks for your great and valuable website.

I placed in the banner html codes ( BIU), and (CTU), that is Click Through URL the page you are sent to when you click the banner, and the height/width.

An example of my (BIU) is

TideShe - Your Online Fashion Wardrobe

and (CTU) is

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=474...=

After clicking on 'generate', the result was "Security measure, too many characters the limit is 200.'

I therefore kindly require your assistance in how I can easily get my free "banner rotator code' to be generated.

kindly look at my codes to see where I placed them wrongly and would love to learn how to fix it properly. I am thinking my codes may need some editing as they might be more than necessary.

on the other hand, do get me the codes you mentioned please/

Thanks for your assistance.

Hello Addo,

What is the URL for your web site? Is the page with the code in it published so that I can view the code?

Hi Crystal,

I really appreciate you for always responding and being so helpful. pls My website is www.money-saver.biz.
Eventually I had the site generating a rotating code but on placing it in the html editor, the banner is placed on the site yet doesn't rotate. Other banners only display when I refresh the webpage.

I am sure I didn't edit the html properlyl as I know nothing abouting html coding. I unknowingly edited the code. the part i placed of the whole html code into the (BIU) of pcmanwebsite was

http://www.shareasale.com/image/46766...

the( CTU) was :

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=474...=
The HTML code of my banner is:



Pls kindly advise.

Kind regards

Hello Addo,

Here is code that may work. In an HTML widget put the following: Replace the BANNER1.gif, BANNER2.gif and BANNER3.gif with the actual image names. Also the URLs www.BANNER1.com, www.BANNER2.com and www.BANNER3.com.



<script type="text/javascript">
if (document.images)
{
adImages = new Array("resources/BANNER1.gif",
"resources/BANNER2.gif", "resources/BANNER3.gif");
adURLs = new Array("www.BANNER1.com",
"www.BANNER2.com", "www.BANNER3.com");
thisAd = 0;
}

function cycleAds()
{
if (document.images)
{
if (document.adBanner.complete)
{
if (++thisAd == adImages.length)
thisAd = 0;

document.adBanner.src = adImages[thisAd];
}
}

// change to next sponsor every 3 seconds
setTimeout("cycleAds()", 3000);
}

function gotoAd()
{
document.location.href = "http://" + adURLs[thisAd];
}
</script>

<body onload="cycleAds()">


Then where you want the banner to display, put:


<a href="javascript:gotoAd()"><img name="adBanner"
src="resources/BANNER1.gif" border="0" alt="Our sponsors"></a>

Hi Ian,

Drag an HTML widget onto your Yola page and paste in your code. We suggest testing the code in a test site first in order to verify that it works and doesn't cause any issues with the rest of your website.
