More Layout Changes

I apologize for how frustrating all this is, but I’m still testing various layouts and ad partners to try and get revenue where it needs to be to keep the site afloat. As a result you have probably noticed that I’ve returned to the old layout for HeroMachine 2 and 3, with no sidebar column and an ad unit integrated into the app itself.

I’ll likely be changing the sidebar to a narrower width and putting it back in some time today, so be warned. I’m also still working on a premium membership where you can have the no-ad layout full-screen sized. I’ve encountered a bit of a problem on that front, though, which is delaying me.

Thank you for your patience and your support.

    The Helpful Tips link line is posted across the center of HM3’s screen.

  2. Hammerknight, refresh your browser and clear your cached. It’s displaying properly in Firefox, Chrome and Safari on my Mac so I am assuming it’s a caching issue.

    If that doesn’t help let me know what browser you’re using.

  3. I’ve just tried it on all 3 browsers I have on windows 7 (IE 11, FireFox v28.0 and Chrome 33.0.1750.154 m). All 3 have the tips line right across the midle of HM3’s screen.

  4. Hammerknight said that too, but I can’t replicate it — I tried it on Windows 7 with all those browsers and they all line up fine.

    I suspect it’s a caching issue of some sort, but I’ll just remove that whole section. Weird.

    Mine did fix itself after I cleared the cache and cookies a few times and let it set for some time.

  6. Jeff, I don’t know if this sort of thing would be feasible for HeroMachine (or worth it financially), but I’ve seen a number of sites running ads behind their content – like this http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-image-uploads/robm/2014/04/AdDisplayExampl.png

  7. Thanks RobM, I’m not sure how those folks do that. I’m assuming they have a sales force like UGO did (they used to run these kinds of skinned ads), but being a one-man show I don’t think I have the resources to get that kind of thing. It’d be nice, though…
