Your Indy banner no longer displays properly on my site, how can I fix it?
Yahoo shut down Geocites and Angelfire prevents remote image loading, meaning that you must be on their site to view the images on a members page. There are two ways to fix this, refresh the old code or make a local copy of the banner by clicking on one below:
Cut and paste the updated HTML code (below) over the similar old code in you page. It replaces the faulty tours, allowing restored remote banner viewing ability. OR…
Copy the image to your own website. When you reference the banner from within your site you only need the relative URL and can just call it IndyBanner.gif without all the messy http://www… at the begining.
This has an added advantage, the banner can no longer become lost or broken due to shifting websites like so much sand collecting in drifts and shifting on the fickle winds of the world's web.
Click the banner you like to start the download OR right click it and select
Save Image As… (Netscape)
Save Picture As… (Internet Explorer)
Select your directory which contains your website page (such as index.html) which will display the banner.
Change the filename.type from "3904663437_dca013ed2c_o.gif" to "BannerIndy.gif".
Click Save. Now you have a local copy on your machine
BannerIndy.gif and your edited page.html to your website host.

Copy and Paste:
If you decide to use my banner copy, from flickr, just put the code above on your page.
If you decide to keep your own local banner copy this code which uses the simpler relative URL, (if you select an alternate banner change "BannerIndy.gif" number, width and height values) then paste it into the text of your page:
Select the code:
Click the text box next to the banner you would like to add, to highlight the code. Or click anywhere in the box and CTRL+A to select all of the code.
[On a Macintosh substitute the command (cloverleaf) key for control.]
Copy the code:
Type CTRL+C to copy it into the clipboard
Alternatively, on your browser's menu bar, click 'edit' then 'copy".
Place the code:
Open your webpage editing application window to the file you want to insert the banner
Click the precise spot & move the cursor into the HTML code where you want to insert the banner.
Paste the code:
Type CTRL+P, to paste it from the clipboard into your web page source text.
Alternativly, on your editor's menu bar, click 'edit' then 'paste'.
Remember to save/upload your new page.
That's all there is to it!
I think its wonderful to know that so many folks have taken the time to tell me they think this Journal is so illustrious. Indeed so celebrated that they not only want to add a link, but a banner as well. I'll take a day off of my life to provide that. Heck, the chamber of earthly riches took years off of it. Thank you for your interest, and have a Disney day,      Wizard.
