Are you a web developer? Do you add your website credits onto the sites you build, but when you have a change in info, you have to change it in 20+ places? Never fear.. here’s something convenient:
- Add a div with id=”footer” to your footer section
- This file, which i call core_webjs but you could call anything you want, includes a call to an external file which you can store in a folder on your own website, so you can update your site credits from your own domain rather than having to go into each client’s FTP. This script is not the shortest by far, and I’m sure you can find a shorthand for this if you care
- This is the site credit file on your end. Just be sure not to use apostrophe’s, unless you can escape /’ it out.. if that’s confusing, just don’t use apostrophes in your credit description. Here’s a demo of mine:
document.getElementById('footer').innerHTML += '<br> <p style="opacity:.5;"><a href="http://stevenchu.com" alt="Steven Chu: Photographer, Video, Haircuts, Socially Engaged Artist. New York" title="Steven Chu: Photographer, Video, Haircuts, Socially Engaged Artist. New York">Web Coding by</a> <a href="http://stevenchustudio.com" alt="Steven Chu Studio: New York Visual Creative Consultant: Branding, Digital Web Design, Art Direction" title="Steven Chu Studio: New York Visual Creative Consultant: Branding, Digital Web Design, Art Direction">Steven Chu Studio</a> <a href="http://instatechie.com" alt="InstaTechie - Your face to face tech concierge. IT. Creativity. Productivity. New York." title="InstaTechie - Your face to face tech concierge. IT. Creativity. Productivity. New York.">/ InstaTechie</a>.</p>';
- Now when you go to your client’s site, you should see your site credit file (stored on your own domain) rendering the text on their end!
