Technical Issues Forum / Re: How do I add other people's sites?
« Last post by Mike on February 14, 2020, 03:38:44 PM »
Every webring site has its own code format; it's unlikely that code from Webring (for example) would work here or vice versa.

In short, people need to 1) create a ring account and 2) add sites to their site list. Other users can then add those sites to their ring or request another ring owner (lie you) add them to their ring.

So, if you find a ring that you want to add any of your sites to, you request the owner of the other ring to admit your site to their ring. If another site owner wants to be included in your ring, they'd send you a request to join your ring, which you would then approve or decline.



I've been trying to build a webring based on what I've found on other people's sites, as well as old sites I found through archive.org, and most of them have their own sign up page and the code for the ring on their own site. One ring only requires you to put the code on your site and then click through the ring before it automatically updates the sitelist. Can I use Webringo this way? Or are these things some kind of specialised code I'd have to figure out from scratch?

Any progress?  I'm having the same problem with browsers blocking mixed protocols.

So I can't add sites that don't have a WebRingo account connected to them?

Well....that's kind of the whole point of a webring. That's how they work.

Basically, you go to their ring and ask or invite them to join. You can find a full walk-through on doing this here:

Hi all, sorry for the dumb question but I'm new to this. I've created my ringhere on WebRingo and added my own site, but how do I add other people's? Do they need to have a WebRingo account, or is there a simpler way? I have a couple of people who've been waiting to join once I figure out what I'm doing, but I don't think strangers would bother creating an account to join.

Please tell me there is currently a way to change my Ring's image?  I can't seem to find it on the manage ring page?

A webring is a group of sites which share a common interest and have a forward and back links to each other's sites via a footer or side panel.

This webring is about bloggers who are creating their own video games.

Some reasons why you might want a site or blog... https://indieweb.org/why

It's open to everyone making video games and writing a blog (http only, https currently not supported).
The WebRing NavBar (next, back, etc) must appear on all pages of the blog.

Signing up to webringo and submitting your site is not mandatory, but the benefit is that you can custom create your banner (colours and sizes). If you don't want to sign up to webringo, contact me ( mike (*a*t*) mgarcia.org ) with these details, and I'll add you:

Name- How ever you like to name your site, up to 50 characters.
URL- The ring code must be placed on this page to validate.
Title- A short, descriptive blurb about the site, up to 80 characters.
Description- Up to 2000 characters. Extra characters will be discarded.
Keywords- Words separated by spaces, up to 250 characters. Extra characters will be discarded.
Orientation- Horizontal or Vertical.
Type- Code in JavaScript, iframe or static HTML (http://webringo.com/forum/index.php?action=kb;area=article;cont=20).

Anyway, leave any thoughts below.
