Hypergurl Javascripts. How to Make JS Files. Linking to External .JS files.

Handy Tip : The use of external js files keeps your source code clean and lean and for some, away from prying eyes who like to take code without asking.

Making and Linking to External .js files

You can make a .js file from any normal javascript by stripping out the opening and closing tags.<script> </script>

Let me show you what I mean!

Here is a javascript for vertical scrolling text.

To make the above into a .js file, simply take out the first line
<script language="javascript"> and the 2 lines at the bottom:
"window onload & </script>".

Copy and paste that code into windows notepad and save it as scroller.js or whatever. Make sure when you save the file you choose "Save as type" is set to "All files".

Linking the .js file

On the page you want the scrolling text to appear place this simple code below. You can place it on as many pages as you want:

Upload both your scroller.js file and the page with that simple code on it to your webhost.

Now each time you want to change that scrolling text you only need to edit that one scroller.js file.

The best program to edit .js files with is called EditPlus. You can download it from http://www.editplus.com/download.html It's only 1 mb download. Even though it says 30 day trial it never stops working after that time.

If you want to use this vertical scrolling text script, to change the text, you open your scroller.js file in EditPlus and go to line 7. That line must have this on it: var scrollercontents='Your Text Here' Your text must be between the two ' ' and you can also insert HTML tags to choose color and links etc. You'll notice I have some text and HTML in that line already. You simply take that out and place in your own.
