// Add below your tips (Do not edit anything above this line !!!!)
todmsg="You can install the \"Tip of the day\" script to your homepage in less than 3 minutes ?"
todmsg="The \"Tip of the day\" Script works in Internet Explorer 4 and Internet Explorer 5 ?"
todmsg="The only file you need to edit to customize the script is the file called totdmsg.js ?"
todmsg="If you un check the \"Show tips at startup\" checkbox a button will be displayed in the top left corner of the Browser the next time you access your page, to allow you to re-enable the \"Tip of the day\" Script ?"
todmsg="The messages are displayed randomly each time you reload the page ?"
todmsg="You can have as many tips as you like (even 10000 and Im not joking) !"
todmsg="You should never place a \" symbol in your Tip description ?
You should first place a backslash \\ before the quotation mark, because else the script will not work. So is you like to type \"My Quote\" type : \\\"My Quote\\\""
todmsg="If a message is too long and does not fit in the screen, a scroll bar is displayed to allow you to view the whole tip ?
Like in this simple example I set up !
See ? No problem !
It works fine :-)"
todmsg="You can use even HTML tags in the tip ?
See ? Im using HTML code !
Just be careful when you use HTML code and put a backslash \\ before all quotation marks that your Tags may have !"
todmsg="It would be nice to put a link back to my page if you use this script ? My page URL is : http://www.geocities.com/~lef"
todmsg="If all tips are displayed the script starts over again to make the tip rotation infinte ?"
todmsg="You should put each tip description in a separate line and in the format todmsg[x]=\"Tip goes here.....\" ?
[x is a number in ascending order, starting from 0, you can see the todmsg.js file to understand it better]"
todmsg="You should not contact me regarding any questions for the Script
todmsg="The \"Tip of the day\" Script starts working after you page finishes loading (to prevent Illegal operations in IE4) ? So if you want to make it faster to display the tip (before you page loads) you could have as an entry HTML page a page with only the script and a plain link to the rest of your pages.
Example : You can have as index.htlm a page wich only contains the code of the scirpt to make sure that the visitor sees the the Tip before entering your page."
todmsg="While the \"Tip of the day\" is displayed the user cannot access your main page, unless he closes the \"Tip of the day\" window of course !"
todmsg="You can use this script as an alternative method to display messages (disclaimers, notices, etc) for your page ? Just edit the file totd.html and replace the phrase \"Did you know that...\" with whatever you like !"
todmsg="After you finish customizing the script and writing your own tips, you should upload the files : totd.html , totd.js, totdmsg.js and totd.gif to your webpage provider and place them all in the same directory !"
todmsg="To insert the \"Tip of the day\" script to your page, you have to :
1.) Copy and paste everything within the <Script> tags (including the Script tags) from the file index.html
2.) You should place this : onLoad=\"totdinit()\" in your pages BODY tag
You do not place 2 onLoad statements ! Instead you use this : onLoad=\"init();totdinit()\" , which means you place both function calls in the same event handler (onLoad) separated by a semicolon. Same can be used for even more than 2 Scripts, like onLoad=\"init();totdinit();start();go()\" etc...."
todmsg="You can un check the \"Show tips at startup\" checkbox, even if you click on the \"Show tips at startup\" text and not in the checkbox directly !"
todmsg="If the \"Tip of the day\" window is closed by the x in the upper right corner and not from the close button the Script doen't take notice if the checkbox was un checked ! So make sure to close it from the close button if you have un checked the checkbox and do not wish to see any more Tips in the feature !"
todmsg="The number of the tip you are viewing and the whole number of tips available are displayed in the down left edge of the window ? This is done to help you keep track of the tips you read, and off course to be aware how many tips to expect !"
todmsg="There are 23 Tips here (including this one), so you have plenty to read ! :-)"
