Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How do the table_top skins work? (or: Why do table_top skins only work on the first page?)

    The ranking table is contained in the table*.html skin files. For each table skin, there is a corresponding table_top skin; for example, table_row.html and table_top_row.html. The table_top skins exist so you can display something special for the top few sites in your list. In the settings page in the admin, you can set how many sites you want using the table_top_skins.

    So, because the table_top skins are supposed to reward the top sites, they only work on the first page. So if you have 10 sites per page and set it to use table_top for the first 20, it will actually only use table_top for the first 10.

    If you are really just after the look of the table_top skins and want all your sites to display the same, then copy the contents of every table_top file into its corresponding table file.

  2. How do i display banners in the ranking table?

    Add <img src="{$banner_url}"> to table_row.html and/or table_top_row.html.

  3. Why do my buttons show up as broken images?

    There are two possibilities here.

    1. Your settings are somehow incorrect

      If you have modified the button settings in the admin, you may have broken something. To try and diagnose the problem, right click on the broken image and go to "View Image" to see what URL the button is redirecting to.

    2. Your host is mean

      Some hosts (actually, just Hostgator, but there may be others) have decided to ban topsites lists. There is nothing you can do about it other than switching to a different host.

  4. Why doesn't the CAPTCHA work?

    Probably because your server doesn't support GD and FreeType. If that's the case, you'll have to do one of the following things:

    If you are positive that your server does support GD and FreeType, and the CAPTCHA is still not working, go to captcha.php in your browser and see if it is displaying an error message.
