Ice,
On your United States of Europe team page, your missing a html tag and it turns the whole team page into a broken link. Your missing a closing [/a] tag.

To fix it;
Edit your team page, but just the "Team name, HTML version". You might have to do it on the boinc wide team page.

You have this;

[a href='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/']
[img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef03.jpg' border='0']
[img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef06.jpg' border='0']
[img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef07.jpg' border='0']

It should be this;

[a href='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/']
[img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef03.jpg' border='0']
[img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef06.jpg' border='0']
[img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef07.jpg' border='0']
[/a]

Just swap the square bracket tags for the pointy bracket tags! Use these <> instead of these []

John.

Hi John, thanks for that.

I've been mystified by this. The HTML team name allows the use of HTML code such as <a> for links, and as someone who has used HTML for some time I know that <a> has to be paired with a </a>. Otherwise everything else that follows the <a> becomes a hyperlink, as you pointed out.

However, what I could not fathom out is why Boinc-wide and SETI HTML team name stripped out the </a> at the end of my link every time I put it in.

I'm sure the use of BBcode will work, but as someone who uses HTML you might appreciate that I would prefer to use the HTML source code rather that code which is converted into HTML by the Boinc systems.

I wasn't too bothered about this particular problem since what I have in my team description is not a lot, and wherever you click takes you to where I want you to go. (By the way, a broken link is one which goes to nowhere on the internet, or cannot display a picture which does not exist at that broken link. A link that takes you to the wrong place or displays the wrong picture is simply bad code.)

I considered 2 things which might be causing the problem;

1. I was using the 'border' statement. Unlikely since this has not caused me a problem in Boinc previously. ("Limited" HTML is allowed, so I'm not sure if I was using something valid in HTML generally, but not allowed in Boinc HTML team names.)

2. The hyperlink statement is too long. I am displaying 3 images wrapped in a hyperlink. Likely since it keeps truncating my </a> at the end of my HTML team name.

I changed both and this seems to have fixed it. I took out the 'border' attribute which in turn shortened the hyperlink statement.

Now seems to work OK in Team-wide and I hope in Boinc projects as it propagates out.

This is the code I now have;

<a href='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/'> <img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef03.jpg'> <img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef06.jpg'> <img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/pix/usef07.jpg'></a>


Thanks again, Ice

Yea, as of right now, your team page is fixed! Looks good. See Ice, I had exactly the same problem a few years back. It took me a long time to find what was wrong, thats why i remember it so well.

SETI servers are completely separate to the BOINC servers. If you change your team info here on SETI, and you have a boinc-wide team, a few hours or days later the SETI server will check the BOINC server for your team name. If your team name is there on the BOINC server, the SETI server will import all your boinc-wide team info and it will over-write any changes you made here at SETI.

Knowing that, i know its a bit slow, but really you should make your changes on your boinc-wide team page. Only thing is, i'm not really sure how long it will take before you see the change here at SETI. It might be a few hours, or a few days, i actually don't know how often it checks for updates.

Or, this is what i would do,
You could make your team changes here on SETI and you will see the changes straight away. Then once your happy with the changes, duplicate the change on the boinc-wide team website straight away. That way, the same code is on both the SETI and BOINC servers. And yes, the whole thing is a bit confusing, i know!

I might add that not all projects will import the boinc-wide team info. Newer projects might have that feature, but the older ones might not. And some projects might have disabled the feature.

Either way, your fixed again Ice, and it looks good buddy!! Your code it perfect!

John.

I'm not sure about perfect John, but you're certainly right that SETI forums allows code not available in some other preojects, for example php scripts. I've modified my team title as follows, and add the BBcode equivalent to show my new team heading. Refresh your browser and it will automatically change. Try it.

<a href='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/'> <img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/banner1/random.php'> <img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/banner2/random.php'> <img src='http://www.brilliantsite.com/use/banner3/random.php'></a>

Yea, i have used those little php image scripts that change the image for you. Its a good little php trick. The boinc server code stripps out any tags that are potentially harmfull. But they allow a few like [img] and [a href]. But your right, some of the sites won't display an image ending with .php. But it seems to work ok here on SETI anyway Ice.

Ice i'm glad the admins here at seti reactivated your account after that whole "banning people" thing that happened there a while back. Its good to still see people hanging around here who have been with seti a few years. I feel i have known you now for a long time. We're old friends at this stage.

Thanks for your comments John.

I've taken out the php for use in team-wide since it may propagate to Boinc projects which do not support it. This will probably result in no images being shown. So I've reverted back to my original jpg html.

Yep, better to play it safe with a JPG, PNG or GIF image. That way you know it will appear on all sites. A GIF image is always an option! Look at my team page, i have a flashing join button for the team!

If your not able to make GIF images, show me what you want in the GIF image and i will make it for you. I have the software. I have another 2 GIF images in my signature that i made myself.

I've used animated gifs before and they can add interest and allow for more creativity. However, I prefer to use my time with photo interests right now (I've moved up to a Canon 7D). I'm looking forward to when we can embed flash in our signatures here.
