    Has anyone seen those screen wide bottom ads that float at the bottom of your screen until you click x to get rid. I quite like those, and was wondering where to find the code to implement. Presumabley javascript.

    Anyone?

    Can't stand them myself. They really f****** annoy me.

    Try viewing source code of a site that uses them, might give you a clue.

    I guessed someone would say that!! ;) Did provoke that response i guess.

    I don't mean any old ad, i have only seen them them on certain few sites (can't remember which bloody ones now otherwise i would do a view source). They dont float in (i don't like those), but just sit at the bottom of the screen and imo dont really get in the way. Recon they might have a good ctr as they tend to look good and beat a boring banner at the top of the page...plus the user can get rid if they want. Wish i could remember where i saw them now...they were big sites i remember that much.

    It will either be css or javascript.

    http://www.xs4all.nl/~jlpoutre/BoT/Javascript/RSSpanel/

    shows a panel on top left of your screen that you can drag around.

    I'm not sure whether it has extra rss feed functionality, I didn't read it much but it's cool anyway! and you can probably find something similar now you now the keywords!

    Those ones are'nt too bad are they.

    Very good for helping develop a brand i would imagine.

    I might look to implement this on some of my sites.
