Railway Modellers Guide – The comprehensive directory for modellers

About to roll out of the station is the latest powered by gooffiliate.com web site. Nothing more than a simple directory type web site which acts as a base for future development.

In this case the owner wanted some time to become familiar with the workings of the web, and to be able to add some unique content, prior to publishing.

The modelling world is not overly affiliate friendly. No merchant i can find has really puts the effort into what i can only imagine would be a very lucrative market.

However the client has access to a merchant feed that is not publically available and an agreement from the merchant to use it, so together we are working on a data feed that hopefully will add the final income stream, however the feed has yet to be built, and will need to be built into a payment provider, but once done it can be quickly incorporated into the site making a truly bespoke affiliate web site.

A clean simple fresh looking web site, that will evolve over the next few weeks/months

New web site release

I have just put the finishing touches to our latest build, adding to the growing list of powered by gooffiliate web sites.

Credit to the clients who chose the template and merchant very wisely.

This is probably one of the best feeds i have worked with for a long time. Plenty of products and good descriptions.

The web site is chock full of useful articles and information, the image below shows a typical article page.

Below is a shopping page and the excellent template choice really stands out here giving the whole site a real edge.

Every product in a shopping page has a more info link, when clicked the use will see more details on the product. Links direct to the merchant and one click to return to the previous page

A typical directory page is shown below, containing information on related web sites.

The site makes extensive use of xml and a bit of Db work thrown in as well. The shopping department is huge so the dot net menu control has been used to condense the menus, again offering a very modern feel to the whole site.

If you own expression web and want a site like this why not join our forum and make yourself known?

Expression web menus using the asp.net menu control–gooffiliate gold tutorial

I have published a tutorial explaining how to use the menu control in expression web. A very useful control for those that have lots of pages and want a coherent way to navigate around the web site.

The control is easy to use – and i will look at some way of automating an xml file to utilise with the control, making it much easier to implement.

The tutorial uses an ascx file extension which is called a user control. Once created the user control can be dragged onto any page in your site.

Then when you add new pages, you can just update the single control and all pages holding that control will be updated.

Especially useful with master pages and big web sites.

Windows 7

Vista is on its way out and windows 7 is set to replace it!

Windows 7 is due to be released in October (22nd) this year ahead of schedual. W7 will replace the much talked about vista operating system.

Many users had troubles with Vista especially upgraders – it remains to be seen what if any problems arise from the introduction of the new operating software.

The upside is – i read – that vista users will be able to upgrate for free.
