I have set up a topsites script for people with BZFlag sites. Feel free to sign up. Categories are Branches and Variants, Help and Support, League, and Misc. After you sign up, you just put a 88x31 image that links back to the topsite. (it will give ya the code) You can also provide a link to a banner that will be show on the topsite for your site. Maximum size is 468x60.

Cool, I already have 2 other members. The top 5 members will have their banner displayed on the topsite page, and the rest will have a less detailed listing. I'm also working on fixing a small display glitch on Mozilla.

Pretty cool idea. Nice work

Just a note. In order for the topsite to track how many views your site gets, you need to put the 88x31 image on your site. If you need the code, you can click on the Lost Code link on the site and enter your site ID. If it goes for 2 weeks without any hits, the script will automatically delete your site. The TiTaNZ CTF League site already has one on it, but the two others don't.

They use that term when two sites link to each other.

Oh crud, thx for letting me know.

Okay, working on the problem. Seems that freesql.org enforces a few limits on their service. Might move the topsite script to a new host. (one with MySQL)

yea i noticed that 2 when i was using it... send me the script and ill host it

I moved it to Tripod UK. I transfered the MySQL data over, so you won't have to sign up again. You'll just need to update the code you put on your sites. You can get that by using the Lost Code page and entering your site ID. Sorry for the inconvenience.

BTW, I would be happy to host you on my server. I've got MySQL, and none of those crappy connection limits

no ski, because there is only 1 link in there
Code: Select all
<img src="http://members.lycos.co.uk/bztop/button.php?id=8" border="0" /></a>
what this means is that the link is wrapping around the image turning the image into a link, so there really only needs to be 1 </a> tag at the very end
Posted: Tue Jun 15, 2004 8:13 pm
No, cuz you need the image to be inside the link, or else it won't do anything.

im confused...if I only use the 1 </a> tag at the very end....the image doesnt show on the site....only a red x....
Posted: Wed Jun 16, 2004 1:12 pm
That's a problem with the current host. If you refresh the page, it appears then for some reason. Still not sure why it's doing that...
Posted: Wed Jun 16, 2004 1:47 pm
hmm, crap...well, i dont want a box with an 'X' on the site...
(im too much of a perfectionist i guess..lol)
Posted: Wed Jun 16, 2004 5:28 pm
well I changed the code back to its original and the icon i now there...so who knows...heh.
