    Amimated ArkGeocaching.com banners

    Some simple animated banners are now available. They are on the Link Banners page in the content section.

    http://arkgeocaching.org/modules.php...showpage&pid=2

    Here's a couple of examples

    Very nice. I'll be upgrading the banners on my cache pages soon.

    BTW, I noticed that the full banner (non-animated) is not working, at least it's not working for me...
    I get my directions from above.

    Ful Banner fixed

    I've fixed the full banner.

    I think I uploaded the animated one over it, then removed the animated one when I figured out I'd named it wrong, without ever realizing it had overwritten the old banner.

    Also be aware that the animated ones are up to 10 times bigger than the non-animated ones, and will take up to 10 times longer to download.

    Cache banner

    Here's a couple of versions of the animated cache banner.

    The second one flashes slower, to be more unobtrusive, while the first flashes the state logo faster to grab attention better.

    Both are much smaller than the other animated banners, but of course still much bigger than the static non-animated ones. The fade-out effect I used in the first animated ones is what makes those files so much bigger.

    Improved small button

    Here's the improved version of the small animated button.

    It adds our website address:

    The fade version is pretty small at 17k, just because the image is so small, but here is an even smaller version without the fade, which is only 4k: (The non-animated version is 3k.)

    More new banners

    I added a couple more new banners to the banner page.
    There is an animated member banner, similar to the cache banner, and a new small button with the state divisions intead of the relief map. I also added the approximate file sizes to the page.

    The banner page is here:
    http://arkgeocaching.org/modules.php...showpage&pid=2

    The new banners are:

    And

    As always, you should set these up to point to:

    Geo, I tried them on my pages and they worked great. I've added the code below. The first one is the small banner with the division map and the last one is the larger one. Hope this will work for you.

    Sample Link Code

    Here is the code to use:
    <center></center>

    Replace the bold italic part according to which logo you want. The rest stays the same. You can remove the <center> and </center> if you don't want it centered.

    The code above is for this logo:


    I also put the sample code on the content page for the banners, which is here:
