MAKING PEOPLE STAY

EXAMPLE

When the user that is currently visiting the site such as this site the following Javascript will make the user stay on the web page by giving a message to how long they visited the particular web site as well as opening a new window.

We have mainly placed this script on Computer Hope to look at the source code for ideas for other possible Javascript and do not recommend anyone placing this script on their pages as this irritates the viewers of your web pages.

In addition we have placed as an example this code into this page and for you to do the same you must include this into the beginning of your web page within your head statements as well as ending the page once completed with the </body>

SOURCE CODE

<head><script language="JavaScript">

// This script was written by Kurt A>
//http://www.geocities.com/soho/lofts/1238
// I only ask that you leave this plug to my page if you use the script.
// It worked for me, If it works for anyone else ----- I can't say.
// It times the user for a page and gives a response dependant on the
// duration of the visit to the page.
// It doesn't work well with the #links because anytime a back button
//is hit the script will envoke itself.

var STS = 0;
var ETS = 0;
var TIMON = 0;

function getStime() {

// optional audio welcome
// location = "welcome.au";

// optional.
// changes the window status bar at bottom of page return true must remain

window.status = "I hope you enjoy"; return true ;

}

function figure() {

// code to get seconds from logon to logoff

postnow = new Date();

ETS = (postnow.getTime());

TIMEON = ((ETS - STS) / 1000);

// if less than 60 seconds

if (TIMEON < 60) {

// open an alert box and plead with user

alert ( TIMEON + " Seconds, Give it a chance");

// open a new window to play an audio plea.

EASY PASSWORD FOR SITE

EXAMPLE

As shown when the page opened. This script will encounter issues if placed on the same page as the destination page (such as we have done on this page). When implementing this we recommend you place this on a page of its own and direct the correct password users to another page.

Keep in mind that this password is not a recommended method for sites that need to be 100% secure as experienced users can easily bypass this.

If you are looking for a 100% secure method of implementing passwords you will need to create a .htaccess file on the server containing the security information. Additional information on how to do this can be found through your ISP (if supported).

SOURCE CODE

<script language="Javascript">

<!--

var password = "please"
var x = prompt("Enter in the password "," ")
if (x.toLowerCase() == password) {
alert("Come right in \n \n You've entered in the right password")
location = "index.htm"
}

else {
location = "bad.htm"
}

MOUSE OVER PROMPT

This allows you to prompt the person when there mouse is over a particular link or picture, great for letting someone know what a picture is, if the image is small.

Source:

<CENTER><TABLE WIDTH="40%"><TR><TD><A HREF=""
ONMOUSEOVER = "alert('Welcome to ComputerHope')")>
<IMG SRC="title.gif" BORDER="0" WIDTH="134" HEIGHT="64"></A></TD>
<TD ALIGN=RIGHT><A HREF=""
ONMOUSEOVER = "alert('Produced by Computer Hope')")>
Who is responsible?</A></TD></TR></TABLE></CENTER>

What it looks like:

 Cool Tricks


Here are some cool tricks you can use on your site. They use various languages such as CSS, Javascript, and even just plain HTML. Remember that although they may seem pretty cool to you, not everyone is using a browser that can see these tricks. In other words, have fun with them, but don't rely on them to work for everyone.


Non-underlined Links
How do I make my HTML code viewable?
How do I make my links change color when I move my mouse over them?
Mailto link with subject
Icon for your site's bookmark in IE5 (favicon.ico)
Page Transitions


Non-underlined Links
This is quite easy, and looks very professional when used correctly. Add the following code between your </TITLE> and </HEAD> tags:


<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!--
A:link {text-decoration:none}
A:visited {text-decoration:none}
--></STYLE>



How do I make HTML code viewable?
What happens when you want to make HTML code visible to someone visiting your page? For instance, let's say that you wanted to show your visitors the code to center text. You can't just type this:

<CENTER>My favorite TV show is South Park.</CENTER>


If you type that, your result will be "My favorite TV show is South Park." actually centered. The code in the brackets will not be visible to your visitor at all. To make it visible, you'll have to use ASCII character codes. I know, it sounds scary, but it's really quite easy. Here's the code:

&lt;CENTER&gt;My favorite TV show is South Park.&lt;/CENTER&gt;


&lt; is the ASCII code for the left angle bracket, and &gt; is the ASCII code for the right angle bracket. Use those two codes like in the above example, and this is what you'll get:

<CENTER>My favorite TV show is South Park.</CENTER>



How do I make my links change color when I move my mouse over them?
This trick looks pretty cool, but unfortunately it only works with newer versions of MSIE, and doesn't work at all with Netscape. To add this to your page, just add the following code to your page between the </TITLE> and </HEAD> tags:

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
<!--
A:link{ text-decoration: none; color:"#COLORCODE" }
A:visited{ text-decoration: none; color="#COLORCODE" }
A:hover{ text-decoration: none; color="#COLORCODE" }
--<
</STYLE>

Now, all that's left to do is insert the color codes in place of "COLORCODE." You can find a long list of the colors you can use here.

Note: The code here has the links non-underlined. If you want your link underlined, simply remove all instances of "text-decoration: none;" from your code.


Mailto link with subject
This one's really easy. If you can make a mailto link, you can make this. I'll just give you an example.

Regular mailto link:

<a href="mailto:billg@microsoft.com">Email Billy Boy</a>


Mailto link with subject:

<a href="mailto:billg@microsoft.com?Subject=Heya">Email Billy Boy</a>


Icon for your site's bookmark in IE5 (favicon.ico)
There's a new feature in IE5 that lets webmasters create a small 16x16 icon for their website that will appear right to the left of your site's title in IE5's Favorites list. It's not mandatory, but it's pretty cool to have. To make an icon for your site, download some icon creation software from Download.com (there's tons of it there) or use the java-based icon creator at favicon.com. Make sure it is saved as favicon.ico and upload it to every directory in your site that contains HTML files.


Page Transitions
Transitions are a nice, fun little novelty that not too many people know about. This is done by adding a simple META tag between the and tags instead of using Javascript or something of that nature, so it's not that much of a pain to your visitors. Transitions can only be seen if you're using a later version of Internet Explorer. The tag structure is like this:


<META http-equiv="Page-Enter" CONTENT="RevealTrans(Duration=3,Transition=0)">

Where it says "Duration=3", this is where you specify how long you want the transition to last. With the 3 there, it is set to last 3 seconds. Where it says "Transition=0", replace the zero with the number of the transition you'd like to use. I've made a list of transitions below with thier numbers. Click on the name of a transition to see an example of it.
