Review on Exciting RevPages: images, videos

You want to put images and videos on your RevPages?

Well, you CAN!

RevPages accept HTML codes. There are some quirks regarding text, but for images and videos, it works fine.

NOTE: For all the HTML tags you will see below, I added blank spaces in the text after every < character else the tags would have been interpreted by APSense and you would not have seen them.


Images

For images, you need the URL of the image, for example:

http://www.thumbvu.com/images/banner1.gif

and your referral link, to make the image clickable so viewers can reach your page to join, let's say I use the following ref link:

http://www.staged.com/go/phmoisan

The code will be:

< p align="center">< a href="http://www.staged.com/go/phmoisan">< img src="http://achieve-work-life-balance.com/images/stages/mainAdTraffic.jpg" style="border:0px;"/>< /a>< /p>

The tags < p align="center"> and its brother < /p> position the image at the center.

NOTE: As you can see in the preceding statement, the tags themselves appear in bold characters. I simply used the tags < strong> and < /strong> to show that effect.

The tags < a href=""> and < /a> are to make the link clickable. The link itself is between the quotes. Right in front of the < /a> tag, you can write anything, it will become the clickable anchor text, which is useless when making an image clickable.

The tag < img src="" /> is where you put the image's link.

NOTE: if you have your own domain, you can use FTP to upload an image you created yourself in any directory so that you can use that image. If you don't know how to use FTP, there are plenty of tutorials that will show you how.

Here's the result of the code I just described:



Sometimes, you don't want to make a click on the image go to another site, all you want is to open the image in a new tab in your browser. All you have to do is use:

target="_blank

to do this:

< a href="http://achieve-work-life-balance.com/images/stages/1st_thumbvu_stage.jpg" target="_blank">Click here to see a bigger image< /a>

On your RevPage, viewers will see "Click here to see a bigger image" written in blue, just like here:

Click here to see a bigger image


The ideal width is 500 pixels in a RevPage for an image ( or a video ). So, if the image you want to use is more or less than that, you can save it on your PC and modify its size using Paint then upload it in a place to use the image URL.

To extract anything and make an image to use, download the free software Screen Hunter. For some reason, the resulting image has to be saved in the .png format to upload properly in APSense. I don't know why. Some graphics expert might be able to explain why.

Videos

After these lenghty explanations for images, you might expect it will be way more complicated for videos. Actually, it's simpler.

First, if you created the video yourself, you can upload it to YouTube. Here's how:



Here's the embed code for this video:

< iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/gtclRjSBZ6M" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen>< /iframe>

You can play around with the width and height to change the size to take advantage of the window where the video will show, or to reduce it if it's too big. Here on a RevPage, as I said earlier, a width of 500 is perfect.

I hope this little tutorial will help you create great looking RevPages. Of course, if you have suggestions for improvement, please leave a comment.

LOL not a wiz, not even close, but I know the things I need to know to make these simple things work. Thanks for the very nice comment, Roosevelt, I appreciate it. Can you imagine, one person voted "I dislike it" what more does that person want? Maybe that someone does the job for mim/her :)

1. Reg. FTP: One can store the images at Flickr, PhotoBucket etc. or use a free website like Webs.Com

2. I would recommend & for images if it is allowed for images. Essentially, tag is for text.

There is nothing to like or dislike, rest assured, Phil.

I think the tags were swallowed. I meant DIV in place of P tag for images.

I'm not a HTML king yet, Mohann, so I don't know what DIV means. Maybe a HTML primer from someone who knows more than me is in order. Let me know when you're written it, Mohann :)

HTML or CSS is no big deal. I learnt all this stuff on the internet - HTML in 24 hours. The best online reference, I am sure you know, is W3Schools. That calls for a group if it's not their already. But would there be any takers, given the fact that HTML editors are in place everywhere? I suggest people who don't know HTML or CSS to use the editor at Blogger and copy the code from there and paste it wherever they want. This is simple and quick. Even I do this way when there is a lot of HTML involved. Additionally, we can be assured of complying with W3C standards.
