View Full Version : Dynamic Tip of the Day?

04-02-2007, 01:54 PM
I am searching for a script that allows linkable daily messages or tips. I have found one that will display a message for each day of the week, however, you cannot link your text.

My client wants a daily link with surrounding descriptive text, pointing to different areas on their site. Currently, this is being done manually every day, and we would like to automate it.

Can anyone lend a hand? Thank you.

Is a pretty good script if a little old, I would get rid of these lines:

var ie=document.all&&navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Opera")==-1
var dom=document.getElementById&&navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Opera")==-1

And change the two instances of this:




So that it can work in Opera.

Ah, I should have mentioned this. I tried running that script, however, this site rests on an ASP FileNet setup, and any iframe will end up having navigation bars automatically attached. This is out of our hands, as we are just a division of a larger entity.

It basically needs to be handled all within the document. This is the one I found, but again, I can't like any of the tips, which we need.

Thank you for all the help.

<table border="0" width="100%" bgcolor="#E8E8E8" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
<tr><td width="100%">


var today_obj=new Date()
var today_date=today_obj.getDate()

var tips=new Array()
//Configure the below variable to contain the "header" of the tip
var tiptitle='<img src="../../tip.gif"> <b>JavaScript Tip of the day</b><br>'

//Configure the below array to hold the 31 possible tips of the month
tips[1]='Tip 1 goes here'
tips[2]='Tip 2 goes here'
tips[3]='Tip 3 goes here'
tips[4]='Tip 4 goes here'
tips[5]='Tip 5 goes here'
tips[6]='Tip 6 goes here'
tips[7]='Tip 7 goes here'
tips[8]='Tip 8 goes here'
tips[9]='Tip 9 goes here'
tips[10]='Tip 10 goes here'

I don't see why you can't do something like so:

tips[1]='Blah Blah <a href="somepage.htm">Link Text<\/a> Blah'

Lo and behold it works afterall. My apologies for wasting your time. :(

As it turns out, I had 2 of these scripts, and for whatever reason, one didn't work, and I must have either forgotten about this working one, or assumed because one didn't work, the other wouldn't either.

My mistake. Sorry about that. But thank you for the help.
