New corner banners!!

I'm offering the following for those who want to show the people of England that they support them and are praying for them. The banner is displayed at the top left of this site. The right hand banner is exactly the same except it displays on the right. The code is:

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/pray4england_l.js"></script>

The code for the right hand banner is:

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/pray4england_r.js"></script>

Remember to read the warning below.

UPDATE: Don Singleton pointed out that the blogger/blogspot.com top banner obscures the top part of the Pray4England corner banner. I have new scripts for those  who use blogger.com:

Left corner

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/pray4england_l_b.js"></script>

Right corner

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/pray4england_r_b.js"></script>

This script puts a 33 pixel offset at the top, and lines the corner banner up just belower the blogger banner.

I noticed that the previous corner banner with a Christian message is now defunct. Therefore I decided to create another. I may make several so people have alternate choices, but for now this is the one (two if you count either side) I have.

The code for putting it in the upper left corner is:

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/joshua2415_al.js"></script>

The code for putting it in the upper right corner is:

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/joshua2415_ar.js"></script>

WARNING:

Remember, if you use any kind of simple text editor, like NotePad, Super NoteTab, or the form blanks for Movable Type or Word Press, this will work fine for copying and pasting. If you use a WYSIWYG editor, MS Word or FrontPage or any other editor that retains the formatting, you'll need to copy and paste it to something that will strip out the formatting first. Any simple text editor, like the ones mentioned above, will do.

The banner will link back to this post so more people can find the banners and place them.

UPDATE: I did another corner banner that is smaller and will tuck up more into the corner. The code for the left corner is:

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/joshua2415_bl.js"></script>

The code for the right corner is:

<script src="http://jacklewis.net/weblog/joshua2415_br.js"></script>

Thanksfor the great corner banners!

Great job! Thanks.

(The code for the right hand "To our friends in England" banner needs the "l.js" stitched to an "r.js".)

So awesome!! I've got the british one on my website, great work friend!

Fantastic idea! I've put one up on my site.

Posted by: Gennie at July 9, 2005 04:33 AM

I put one of the banners on my blog as well and it's wonderful! Thanks for making it!

Posted by: Shannon at July 9, 2005 11:24 AM

Added a banner to my site too. Thank you very much!

Posted by: JustSue at July 9, 2005 02:38 PM

Thanks for the banner! Really apppreciate it!
Blessings in Christ Jesus!

Danny:
I ran into an issue on my blog (TypePad). The corner banner displays, but then is covered up by content within existing DIV tags.

I conducted some tests, and found that setting a 'z-index:' helped. '99' puts it well above anything else I have, although '1' should work in most cases. This is something that I suspect you (Danny) would need to implement, or offer as an alternative, if you found it of use.

Just thought I'd pass that along.

I have tried to post a comment here, regarding this entry, but it keeps saying "Your comment was denied for questionable content."

Posted by: Aakash at July 11, 2005 11:35 PM

Thank you for the beautiful banner!

Posted by: Lady Jane at July 12, 2005 03:22 AM

Basil, I changed to code to make the z-index=1. That should work.

Aakash, some legitimate domains were accidentally included when I was blacklisting spanners. For some reason the server won't let me remove them from the list. It might have something to do with the cPanel MovableType conflict. I do know that the ellipse (three consecutive periods) managed to get added and if you have that in your comment it will think it's "questionable".

thanks for the corner banner message - even tho i live in London i couyldnt help but bung one up ther ! keep up the good work :D

Excellent Banners!

Where can we go to make our own? Is that possible?

Posted by: Republican Vet at July 14, 2005 02:33 PM

Just wanted to say thanks for the "To Our Friends In England" site topper. I appreciate it and will use it on my site proudly. CHEERS!

Posted by: Joseph (OKDemocrat) at July 14, 2005 10:50 PM

Republican Vet, I made these myself using Paint Shop Pro.

Thank you for responding to my comment submission problem; I still have that same window open in my browser, with the comment in place. (I need to turn this laptop off some time, rather than just closing the lid.)

Ordinarily, I would have the elipses after that last sentence (in parenthesis), but -
Thank you for letting me know about that; I include them often in my web postings, so that may have been the problem. By initial comment post is below; hopefully it will post. Thank you!

I had been wondering about these corner-type thingies - I first recall seeing one during our battle to save Terri. Now, thanks to this entry, I know more about them. Thank you for creating these graphics and source codes for our weblogs.

The thing is: I am wondering - My blog already has been loading slowly, on people's computers, due to the large content of the front page. Will having one of these corner banners on my weblog cause a significant increase in the loading time? That is my main concern; otherwise, this seems like a good idea. [Also, it may be neat and helpful for me to change, or remove and then put back, these corner banners from time to time - Thereby creating some variety and change at my site, even if I don't post new entries ;-) ]

Thanks once again for your work!

It will load slow, if my server is slow, which it normally isn't. I've skimmed down the amount of data these banners (and the scripts) need, so there's a minimum amount of load on my server.

So far this month the banner has been used 48,759 times using almost 99mg bandwidth which is 2.96% of the total bandwidth used on this account. I saved the graphic as a 216 color gif, so it's only 3k and the script that loads is less than 1k. I haven't tried it this way, but if you want to make sure it doesn't make the rest of your page slow down, on the rare chance my server would be slow, you could place it at the end of the page, rather than the beginning, that way everything else loads first.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at July 16, 2005 09:24 AM

Thank you for the code for the corner banners. I was wondering, do you have the proper code for the "As for me an my blog"? I was playing around to see if I could get it to work with blogger, but no chance. Just wondering. Thanks again. God Bless!

Posted by: Donnie at July 18, 2005 08:07 PM

I don't have a blogger/blogspot version of those banners. I'll try to make one available.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at July 19, 2005 01:56 PM

Why are you using the Union Jack flag but saying "To our friends in England"? Why not use the proper "ENGLISH" flag, or say "To our friends in the UK".

Remember The UK is not just england, even though most outside the country think it is.

Get it right or don't do it all.

Posted by: A Brit at July 20, 2005 08:24 AM

Thanks for the great banner! Worked like a charm!

Posted by: Cyli at July 21, 2005 06:24 PM

Hey, where exactly in Blogger.com do I put up ze banner?

Posted by: Josef at July 21, 2005 11:37 PM

Josef, go to the template and add it right after the <body> tag. Make sure you put it before the "<!-- Begin #content". The body tags quite a ways down because there's usually a lot of style formatting before it.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at July 22, 2005 12:10 PM

Blogger/blogspot users. I have a sample blogger blog at http://phlyxmasthetic.blogspot.com/ showing how it looks if you put the code immediately after the <body> tag.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at July 22, 2005 12:12 PM

I love your Joshua corner banner. But I am having a problem putting it on my blog. I use blogger and the blogger banner at the top covers part of your banner. Am I pasteing it in the wrong place or am I using the wrong banner? I tried the two you had to offer.
Thanks and God bless, Joe

Posted by: Joe at July 22, 2005 04:33 PM

I gotta say that I'm not normally a GOP supporter, but I'm with you on this one.

Thanks for the banner.

Josh, did you make sure you put it before the "

Posted by: Danny Carlton at July 25, 2005 11:58 AM

Many thanks for all of your thoughts, much appreciated.

Just one thing, you are using the British flag not the English flag, which is the St. George's cross, not the union flag.
Also, if you are interested, there is a London flag, it is the St. George's cross with an upturned sword in the top left-hand quadrent. (http://www.aviewoncities.com/img/zzflags/eu_gb_england_london-l.gif)

just to let you know that i have put it on my blog. God bless England!

Posted by: Nahum at July 31, 2005 03:21 PM

I have also placed the United Kingdom banner on my weblog. Thank you for providing it.

I realize this is a little off topic but I had a hard time finding out how to e-mail the operator of this weblog, so I thought I would ask it here. Could someone please provide the script for links on a blogger site that work the same way as the ones on this blog do. By this I mean when you click the headline link, a series of indented links appear and fold back up when you click the headline again.

Thanks

Posted by: Joseph Kastner at August 6, 2005 11:55 PM

Thank you for the banners. This is good work!

Posted by: SJ at August 10, 2005 11:12 PM

thank you. I am using a banner.

Posted by: mixed pearl at August 12, 2005 08:02 AM

great banners! I saw them first on cross across america and then found you. I thought maybe I could help with the creating of custom banners for others who asked... I have one I did on my blog with a link to the page explaining what it means. I also posted a quick how-to for those who have SOME experience altering their blogs' code.

Can you create a banner for Hurricane Katrina?

Posted by: patd95 at August 29, 2005 05:40 PM

Yes, I second the motion for Danny to make a corner banner for Katrina victims.

Please.

Posted by: Don at September 1, 2005 12:31 PM

I've got to say, living in England, I love the idea of you offering support to our country. It's nice to see something so positive being shared around.

As mentioned above though: the flag you show is the flag of union between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - and I know my Scottish family loathe seeing the Union Jack being referenced specifically with England and not all of us. It really has to be "United Kingdom".

Posted by: Adrian at October 20, 2005 02:55 AM

Thanks Don for the great banner! I just love it and so will all those that pass by. I am so glad this is catching on and that bloggers are using your wonderful banners!

I used the Joshua banner and again thanks! God bless you!

Posted by: Doll at January 25, 2006 10:33 PM

I had to come back and get the one for England too. Thank you!!!!!

Posted by: Doll at January 25, 2006 10:45 PM

Thank you very much for creating the corner banner. I use the "Serve the LORD" one on my blog.

I love it! I always have trouble with the top section (blogger). It is a great thing, though! ;)

Posted by: Rosemary at March 24, 2006 06:26 AM

Thank you for the banner. I saw it over at HSB and wanted to let you know I think it's really cool.

Posted by: Amy at April 8, 2006 08:56 PM

Awesome! I just put one on my blog, and it looks sooo good! Thanks Danny!!

Posted by: ali at April 10, 2006 12:34 PM

I can't seem to get it ALL the way showing on my Blogs, I'm new at this computer stuff so maybe I'm doing something wrong any suggestions??

Thank you,

Kelly

Posted by: Kelly KJV at April 20, 2006 02:03 PM

Kelly, I checked out your blog, and it looks fine. I guess you got it fixed.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at April 21, 2006 09:50 AM

Hi Danny:
I was going to create a banner to "Ban all Banners", as I was getting sick of the raise money for this and that issue, that gets abused by those collecting said monies. Or the War Mongering support banners that make my blood boil with the White HOT Heavenly Fire of Righteousness. That is until I ran across YOUR banner.
VERY WELL DONE, my brother. Endless thank you's. This IS a banner that I can STAND with.
your humble servant,
Ancient Clown

Posted by: Ancient Clown at July 5, 2006 11:17 AM

Thanks for putting these banners out. I just installed it on my blog http://www.paulmccord.info.

It is nice in appearance.

Paul

Posted by: Paul at July 9, 2006 08:41 PM

Thank you for the banner!

Posted by: Babs at July 29, 2006 05:06 PM

Hello Jack Lewis. Your banners are GREAT, but I have some problems with them.

First, the banner "I support Israël" cuts the upper part of my title. I am not the only one, it does the same for this blog:
http://thecanadiansentinel.blogspot.com/

To compare, look at this blog:
http://lighthorse.blogspot.com/

Is there a way to fix that?

Second, will you make a blogger/blogspot version of your "as for me and my blog..." banner (the smaller and that tucks up more into the corner one)??? If yes, it would be extremly apreciated!

Thank a lot, Clément

Posted by: CBV at July 29, 2006 08:59 PM

Clément, on your blog your title is pushed far over to the right, it appears because of some text within one or more of the posts. It looks fine on 1024 width, though. (55% of web users use that resolution as opposed to 17% for 800 width)

On the Canadian Sentinal it looks fine in 1024 width, but covers the site description in 800 width. But then the format of that blog is made for 1024 width.

As for blogspot, I found a way of making the script detect blogspot, and adusting the hieght accordingly. I have implimented it in the "Banned in India" banner, and will try to do it in the "as for me and my blog..." banner.

Posted by: Danny Carlton at July 30, 2006 04:15 PM

I added your corner banner on my site.
