A New Look

May 10, 2009 in Chit Chat by slowry

My wife, Stacey, has been doing a fair bit of WordPress Theme creation of late.

She finally got around to doing one for my personal site here. A few folks looking at my old theme mentioned that it lacked a little “attitude” and “style’ that I’m know for.

I think this one represents me pretty well.

Let me know what you think?

Cheers,

Shane

Hiding Links

November 25, 2008 in Tech by slowry

Link Assuaged

If you are working in Affiliate Marketing, sooner or later you are going to want to set up landing pages or put Affiliate links in your blog posts. The issue with that is that Affiliate links are ugly at best. At worst someone could steal your links and take your commissions. You don’t want that.

If you are making your own pages there are a few ways of hiding links, if you want a quick and easy way to generate code that will hide your links for you and generate non visible friendly links, Try HideALink. It’s a small program I wrote that will generate the html code to hide links in your html.

Oh … did I mention it’s FREE? Got get it.

If you are running WordPress, the straight html approach doesn’t work so well. There are a few methods around of hiding links using .htacces , folders and other forms of redirects. An eaiser way is to use a wordpress plugin.

I use “link cloaking plugin” which is also free and you can get it from HERE

I hope you find these useful.

Cheers,

Shane
