Thank you!

Glad to do it! It's an honor and pleasure, a "Labor of Love"! :)

Please pass along to Meetups and Facebook too, anywhere you can think of. It should help the main sites withstand the onslaught I hope!

Awesome! I just added a big Store graphic that links to the StoreFront in case someone wants to go there.

How does the donation widget work if it doesn't use ronpaul2008 bandwidth? Where else would it gather the data from?

Its not a good idea to put up alternate donate link to main page. Too easy to spoof and steal money. People should only donate by going to the official campaign website.

http://ronpaul2008.com/donate

and nothing else. Do not go through anyone elses donate link, period just to be safe.

Even SWF widgets can easily be modified to direct you to an identical looking site.

I understand what you are trying to do, and I think you are legit, but this is a hard rule of the internet, period!!!!

Well sure, it uses the RP2008 bandwidth, but so do all the thousands of other widgets on pages all over the web.

It's an "official widget" that's available on the campaign site for people's use.

Try it, put a name in it, it only takes you directly to the campaign donation page instead of going to the main page to click a link.

It saves bandwidth because people don't have to go the main page to click the donation link.

Dude.. it's a widget that THE CAMPAIGN supplies! It DOES go to the donation page for goodness sake.

You can have one too, look here: http://www.ronpaul2008.com/widgets/

Besides look at the page source code if you doubt, I could barely code the page, much less anything else.

What I meant was the donation counter...I don't see the point of this site if the counter comes from ronpaul2008.com and uses bandwidth from that site anyway.

I'll put up a direct link if it'll help, at least use the page for the counter and graphs to save bandwidth.

(edit) A direct link at the top screws up the page layout I worked hard to make just right so people can see the beginning of Ron's letter.
There are 2 links in the letter already if the widget worries somebody.

Same difference, there are counters all over the web on pages, even here on RPForums.

It saves having to load the whole front page on the official site and using the bandwidth it takes to do that.

Here's the widget code on the page, I simply copied and pasted what's on the RP2008 site:

Thanks Mark ;)

Least I could do xexkxex! It took a while to figure out what to include that most people would want to see.

If you or anyone want to see more graphs, please let me know.

I didn't want to "go wild" with them,
just wanted to include the basic graphs I thought people would be most interested in following for the day. ;)

It's going to be good!! Like an early Christmas!!! :D

I'm just spreading TheNeed.org (http://theneed.org) now.

Anyone can remember "The Need" in order to tell someone by word of mouth without a link.

Just remember it's ---> .org

like a nonprofit
