Hurricane Katrina Banner
Please donate to help the victims of the Hurricane

This template edit adds a banner to your forum, that appears after the first post on each page.

First upload the redcross.jpg banner to your forum/images directory.

Then go to your Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Style Manager -> Edit Templates -> Postbit (and/or Postbit Legacy) and click on the "<< >>" button to expand the template groups. Then paste the following at the end of your template(s):

<if condition="$post[postcount] % $vboptions[maxposts] == 1">
<center>
$spacer_open
<div style="padding:0px 0px $stylevar[cellpadding]px 0px">

<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="$stylevar[cellspacing]" border="0" width="100%" align="center">
<tr>
<td class="thead" align="left">Support Hurricane Victims</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="alt1" align="center">
<a href="https://redcrosssecure.org/arcno_org/?zone=donate&sid=&sid="><img src="$vboptions[bburl]/images/redcross.jpg" alt="Donate to the Red Cross to help Hurricane Victims" border =0></a>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

</div>
$spacer_close
</center>
</if>

The address that the banner links to is the Red Cross of New Orleans, however you can substitute the link/banner with whatever aid organization you want to include.

NOTE: If you want to place this banner directly below your navbar check out THIS (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showpost.php?p=766920&postcount=9) post

Attached to the first post is the banner, so people don't have to download the zip file if they don't want to. Of course you can substitute any banner to any aid organization, or link to that organization, that you want.

Attached to this post is another graphic that can be used as a sidebox (Thanks to MotoUp).

The Red Cross (http://www.redcross.org/donate/donate.html), operation usa, (http://www.opusa.org/) Direct Relief (http://www.directrelief.org/sections/our_work/hurricane_katrina.html), America's Second Harvest (http://www.secondharvest.org/default2.asp) and many others are all working to help the victims.

Any way that you can help is needed/appreciated, and there is no time to wait.

You can donate directly to the New Orleans chapter of the America Red Cross by clicking HERE (https://redcrosssecure.org/arcno_org/?zone=donate&sid=&sid=)

There is no time to wait! Every day that passes without the needed help brings those people closer to danger/death! If you never donated to anything like this before, now is the time for social action! The federal/local governement is doing what they can, but it will not be enough - aid organizations such as Red Cross and the rest are already on the ground helping people directly, and they can do more with your help.

BRO, I tip my hat to you on this one. I have quite a few friends that have lost everything to Katrina and some that I have not been able to get ahold of yet.

I am showing my support and doing what I can to help. Zendiving.com Installed

There are variables you can use to call for forum directory URL's you know.. You don't need to hardcode the link in there.

Please donate what you can to help the hurricane victims.

Thank you yoyoyoyo! I was just thinking about this while driving into the office today. I installed it but under my navbar.

edit your navbar template:

find:
<!-- / nav buttons bar -->

after add:

<!-- Redcross Banner -->
<div align="left">
<table class="tborder" cellpadding="$stylevar[cellpadding]" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%" align="center" style="border-top-width:0px">
<tr align="left">
<tr>
<td class="thead" align="left">Support Hurricane Victims</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class="alt1" align="left">
<a href="https://redcrosssecure.org/arcno_org/?zone=donate&sid=&sid="><img src="$vboptions[bburl]/images/redcross.jpg" alt="Donate to the Red Cross to help Hurricane Victims" border =0></a>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
<!-- End Redcross Banner -->



Thanks again!
