    Hi there Guys,

    Help, I am looking for a plugin that can show a list of logos in a horizontal list with links in the footer of a site on all pages. The images will all be 90x60px size and will need to be linked to sponsor's homepages. Do any of you kind people out there know of a plug-in that would be able to facilitate this problem. maximum number of images would be a.

    Thank you very much for your help in advance.

    Kind regards,

    John

    I don't have an answer, I'm afraid but this is something I've often required. You see it on so many sites and for me it's always been a sticking point when it comes to the client taking control of their own site.

    Often these logos are lists of sponsors for example which will need to be changed and added to as time goes on. I've been supplying a PSD template and telling clients to upload their logos and then use the editor to do some basic HTML in order to get them on the site. :S

    The ideal solution - and one which I will probably create myself once I have the time, if noone gets there first - would be one where large versions of the images are uploaded, there is a back-end interface for picking them out and adding a url for linking, and which then figured out how to size and position the images to best fill the space.

    Anyone else have a good solution for this or know of any existing plugins?

    hi there, active,
    You make some very good points. The way I got round in the end was using tables, sizing the images before uploading them and then placing them into the table with the correct URL. This I must admit is not a perfect solution, but it is a temporary fix and has got over that problem that the client requested. It would be wonderful if someone could come up with a easy-to-use plug-in.

    I will keep my fingers crossed.

    Hi there,

    I now have an answer which I would like to pass on, I hope it helps someone out there.

    There is a plugin called WP125, it is really for carrying 125 x 125px size ads in the sidebar of your site, but with a little playing about you can get it to show logos.

    For this to work well, you need to following two plugins:
    1. WP125 - By Matt Harzewski
    2. PC Custom CSS - By Peter Coughlin

    Add the plugins to your WordPress installation.

    Make your logos to a standard size - for instance 100 x 70px and a save them as a transparent png file. If you don't have Photoshop to do this, try The Gimp or an online site called pixlr, both very good and FREE.

    Go back into your WordPress installation and go to PC Custom CSS, you will find it under "Appearance" as "Custom CSS"

    Paste the following CSS into the page:
    #wp125adwrap_2c .wp125ad {padding: 10px 5px;}
    You may need to change the padding to suit your logos and you could add margin-left: xxxpx; to centre the logos on the page.

    Go to WP125 plugin, you will find this under Ads, and follow the on screen details.

    You can add the name of the logo, a link to the website, and in which order the ad is displayed.

    If anyone has any thoughts, please let me know.

    John
