Account Icons

Introduction

With AutoRank Pro it is possible to display icons next to any of the member accounts on your ranking page. This can be useful to draw attention to specific accounts. Icons can be any HTML you want, including images, text, or anything else. They are a good way to highlight your own sites, or you can put them next to partner sites to improve their productivity.

Adding an Icon

In the control panel locate and click on the Manage Icons link in the Templates section of the menu. AutoRank Pro will load a page where you will be able to enter the necessary information to create an icon. Each of the fields on that page is described below.
Once all of the options have been filled in how you want them, press the Add/Update button. The new icon will be added and you will be returned to the Manage Icons page where you can create more icons if you wish.

Updating an Icon

To edit an icon, select it's identifier from the drop down list at the top of the page. AutoRank Pro will fill in the form fields with the Identifier and HTML for that icon. You can then make any changes to the HTML for the icon that you wish. Once you are completed making the changes you want, press the Add/Update Account button. AutoRank Pro will update the icon with the new HTML and display a confirmation message at the top of the page.

Deleting an Icon

To delete an icon click, select it's identifier from the drop down list at the top of the page. AutoRank Pro will fill in the form fields with the Identifier and HTML for that icon. You can then press the Delete button and AutoRank Pro will delete that icon.

Displaying Icons

To display icons next to a member account, you first need to setup your ranking page template. In the HTML option of either your TEMPLATE or MEMBERS directives you will need to use the ##Icon_HTML## template value. Place it where you want the icon to appear. Once you have done that, save the HTML for that ranking page.

Now you need to assign an icon to the member account that you want it to appear next to. This is done through the Display Members interface, and is described in the Creating and Managing Accounts section of the manual. Click on the [Edit] link for the member account that you want to assign an icon to. On the page that loads you will see a field labeled 'Icons' where you can check the box next to the icon(s) you want displayed next to this account. Once you have selected the icon that you want, press the Update Member button.
