Yeah I like these too.  We used to have a daily cartoon called Toy Trunk Railroad, by they stopped updating it and we had the same one for about three months !  I think a lot of people like Dilbert though and the humour could fit well in a lot of sites.

The widgets are nice, but for my site I felt they didn't fit in right.

Glad you like it :)

Cool :)

I actually just updated the code to something slightly more streamline if you want to grab it again.  You wont notice any difference - I think people call that micro-optimising or something !

Edit : updated again because I found it was interfering with my other RSS feeds on the same page - only of note if you use multiple RSS readers using the same code.

Another nice snippet Freddy.  O0

By the way, to quote you on the,

Quote
SMF/TP versions tested: SMF 1.1.11 + TP v1.0.5 beta 1; SMF 2.0 RC2 + TP v1.0 beta5

I've just tested it on my site, running SMF 1.1.11, TP 0.9.8 and it works nicely.   (Bottom of page, link in sig)  Just in case anyone (like me) is still running 0.9.8 ;)

This has been working really well up to now.  But for some reason the cartoon has just stopped displaying.

Just me? or is there something wrong with the feeds?  :smiley6600:
