attractive site, though you may want to stop using that usersonline tracking software until you figure out where the problem is.

fyi - your body copy shows up very tiny (= 6-7pts in print) on my monitor which is set to 1280 x 1040. I'm using OS X/Safari & Firefox to view

Is the shopping cart/catalog a 100% separate module?
Is the affliate program managed via Coranto?

Finally, I think your effort would also get a better reception here if you credited Coranto as is required in in the terms of use. (If I am wrong about that, somebody please feel free to point it out.) If you have bandwdith for the rest of those affiliate tiles, would a few measly bites for a link back to Coranto and it's contributors really break your budget?

Even if you feel you must style us as <div style='display=none'> too, at least we'd get the benefit of the link back in whatever search engines pick you up.

To link or not to link, this has been discussed before... As far as I know, the license included in the last version by elvii, build 29 read:
every page which contains full news items must include a link to the Coranto site (http://www.amphibianweb.com/coranto/), preferably via the phrase Powered by Coranto. Pages which contain only headlines linking to full news items are exempt.

The Display Link option, on by default, makes Coranto include the link automatically. If you prefer, you can turn this option off and include the link yourself, provided that it remains in a visible location and is not significantly smaller than the main text on the page.

The problem with this as I see it is that the license is old, I am not sure that he would have phrased himself in that way in the more recent releases. The second problem is that the link isn´t working and gives you a 404 since it isn´t in use anymore, but if you should follow the license to the letter that is what you should do. So basically it is your conscience that tells you what to do...

Somewhere I have also read that commercial sites should link back and it is optional for personal sites, but I am not sure about where I read that (and if it is correct).

Your right I know what the problem is. It's caused by the script that was purchased being encoded and containing my old server path from my old host. It seems as though they have fallen of the face of the web, so unless I can figure out how to decode their script...I'm doomed'

The site is a personal site, not commercial.

Also I don't want to add broken links such as http://www.amphibianweb.com/coranto/ to a page on purpose.

so i will be editing the theme to link to http://coranto.org
Would that be acceptable?

Code: Select all
<div style='display=none'>


Instead of that, try this:

Code: Select all
<div style="display: none;  font-size: xx-small;">


or make your html

Code: Select all
<div class"hidden">


and add

Code: Select all
.hidden { display: none; font-size: xx-small; }


to your style sheet

one other possibility is using styles to
Code: Select all
{ float: right; font-size: xx-small; margin-left:9999px; color:#fff' }


which should push it out of the viewing area and allow any text below it to rise up.

Thanks for that Muttly,
As soon as I can take a break from my 9-5 I'll change that.

Is that due to display=none still showing on firefox browsers?
Or is it just a better, more correct way of doing it?

s'pose it's the same thing really :lol:

It was showing in both browsers for me and it looked like the code was showing because you had the style formatting wrong.
