My how you folks get around. It is like a pink wave crossing the lands... What next, alien crop circles perhaps?

With such exposure why would anyone want them removed from their footer

Great point you bring up... I can only see the footer as a badge of honor don't you?

Sure do....Honestly I very much disagree when people complain about it not looking professional...And I can honestly state that at my last job when we were working on a defense contract with Caterpillar they never ever said ...Hey we noticed your footer on your site and we decided to do business with you because you are not using a free hosting service...So yes my banner stays... I see their success and mine as joined

It's simple Casey

To use the lighthouse GIF image as your main banner you:

1) Right click and select "Save image as" to save it to your computer

2) Open your site builder and simply click the "Change Banner" button on top left and then in the select image popup click the "Upload files" button to find the saved lighthouse image on your computer. Do this on every page that you want the image to appear as your page banner image

To add the flash banner to your pages simply:

1) Right click on the (The SWF file you can save here) link above and click "Save link as" then "OK" to save it to your computer.
2) In your site builder click the "File manager" button and then in the Manage files popup click the "Upload files" button to find the saved SWF image on your computer.

Once the flash SWF file has been uploaded to your file manager update your site and then:

3) Drag a Widgetbox widget onto your site and paste the following code inside the space provided. The getsatisfaction encoder did not work for this one so you are going to have to copy only the code between the <!-- and the -->

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/sh..." width="468" height="60">
<PARAM name="movie" value="resources/winners%20edge%20trading%20flash%20banner.swf">

</EMBED></OBJECT>

-->

Once you click "OK" you should see the flash banner on your page. You can add this anywhere you like and on as many pages...

It really is that easy...

I added the banner to one page to test what do you guys think. Maybe I should change my theme if I am going to go with this new banner?

I quite like it and that is not because I made it ;)

The green in the banner text brings up subliminal thoughts of money without even seeing a picture of a dollar sign. The Yahoo font in the slogan simply fits as a contrast to the company name without being too similar.

The image with its fade to the nice white background of your site has a "Looking through a window" effect and makes you imagine the light. The oval fits in perfectly I think.

As to changing your theme... maybe make it less dark. In my opinion if you pick a few spots on your pages and let the color flow it would really pop your site. I don't mean everywhere but at least get rid of some grayness ;) That is why I chose the colors of the banner. To help make the first thing people see be more inviting.

But again those are my 2 cents...

If you don't like the animation I can break it down into frames so that you can see if there is one that you like...

Yola is an extinct West Germanic language formerly spoken in Ireland. A branch of Middle English, it evolved separately among the English (known as the Old English) who followed the Norman barons...(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yola_lan...)

Thanks...

Just tryin to show others that they can do quite a great deal with free online generators. Using YOLA was a fun way to get people interested and let them see the results up front...

If anyone has an image of a sign, billboard or anything local to them that they want to make into a custom image with their banner or logo on it replacing the image already there then use this simple free generator...

I hope everyone enjoys...

Oh and by the way if you sign up for their free forums you can download high resolution images. After you sign in and used a generator simply click on the produced image and it will open a new page with the high quality image for you to save.
