LQ Banner


Is there any LQ Banners that I can post in my website. Just putting a link is kinda cheesy. I have the Firefox banner and wanted to put a LQ banner there as well. I could make my own, but if there is an "Official" LQ button or banner, I would rather have that.

The page only has a Pic. There is no Banner as such.

I would like to have a banner. (I mean the pic which we click and are directed towards the LQ Site.

Just like the one on the LQ homepage at the top.

That works, yes, but you're burning additional bandwidth on jeremy's part by hotlinking the image. You should download it and use a local copy instead so you don't burn up his bandwidth.

Oh yeah.

But I wonder such a small image would burn up the Huge Bandwidth this site must be having.

Surely that can be replaced by a local copy.

yeah- I don't think sites mind if you take their banner by downloading it to use to link to them- it's more traffic for them. However, unless told to, you should NOT dirrectly link to the image.

flikr is free- all I've used mine for is to put up images for my blog- no worries about server space.

Whats that?

If it is a image hosting site, i use Photobucket.

Some people also use Imageshack.

Moreover, I think that Blogger.com also can host images on its own. But yeah. The images are positioned at pre-defined positions.

yeah- blogger can host images but I find that the interface at my photohosting of choice is easier to use.

http://www.flickr.com/

btw- "center" is depreciated.
