I'm not going to test it on banners - just want to make sure that people know, when you hit reload and it reloads the page, you will actually be creating a new trackable banner that gets listed on your banner reporting page.

Nice work!

JohnFScott,

The script just converts the HTML into UBB. If you have additional IMG tags you will have to insert them manually in your banners.

First generate and get the UBB code, then add your stuff (images or text) inside the URL section.

Can't seem to get it to work in FireFox (vers 7.0.1) - even your links, anchev - they just go to a blank screen, though they work OK in IE.


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

That is strange. I have developed and tested it exactly in FF 7.0.1
Check your browser configuration, the script can't give you a blank screen. No such function in it

Yes - must be something to do with my add-ons - if I restart FF in safe mode it works.


I'll experiment with disabling them one by one and see if I can find out what it is.

OK, it's the Ghostery add-on that's breaking it.  But even when I whitelist refer.istockphoto.com, it still won't work, I have to turn off all web bug blocking.


I'll play with the optyions some more and let you know if I can find an answer.

Ghostery has an option "Look for and prevent redirection from known trackers" - has to be disabled for the link to work.


Doesn't seem to have a more granular option for it, and it seems to cause an error in the error console.


But I guess most people don't use Ghostery.  Sorry to monopolise the last few posts!
