[TUTORIAL] HOW TO PUT CURSOR

Post by pauldemonteverde on Wed 31 Jan - 11:43

There are two options to choose:

1. Using a pre-defined cursor -- body and link hover cursor:

using this code:
Code:
<style>body {cursor: url (URL_OF_CURSOR1);} a {cursor: url (URL_OF_CURSOR2);}</style>

replace: URL_OF_CURSOR1 and URL_OF_CURSOR2 with the direct url of your cursors.
Copy and paste the above codes to your SITE DESCRIPTION, go to Admin Panel >> General Admin >> Configuration >> General >> Site Description
Save it.

or


2. Using a JavaScript cursors:
PREVIEW

======
HOW TO MODIFY THE JAVASCRIPT:

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Get a JS or JavaScript codes and EDIT it on a NotePad.
2. Delete or remove the <script>, <script type="text/javascript">, <SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2>, </script> tags on it.

Example of removing the <script> tags:
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript1.2>
function welcome(){if (!confirm
("Welcome to my Friendster profile!!! Click OK to continue"))
history.go(-1);return " "}
document.writeln(welcome())
</SCRIPT>

result:
function welcome(){if (!confirm
("Welcome to my Friendster profile!!! Click OK to continue"))
history.go(-1);return " "}
document.writeln(welcome())

3. Save this file as script.js.
4. Upload it to any web hosting site (e.g., www.freewebtown.com).
5. Get the full URL of your js file (e.g., http://www.freewebtown.com/username/script.js).
6. Replace the URL_OF_JS with the js URL.
Code:
<script type="text/javascript" src="URL_OF_JS"></script>
7. Copy and paste the above codes to your SITE DESCRIPTION, go to Admin Panel >> General Admin >> Configuration >> General >> Site Description
8. Save it.


YOU CAN TRY THIS ONE
Example of a JS code, its a Circling Text around the Mouse:
Note, I already removed the <script> tags just follow Step 3 to 8 above.
Code:
<!--//

//Circling text trail
var msg='YOUR MESSAGE HERE';

var font='Verdana,Arial';
var size=3; // up to seven
var color='#ffffff';

// This is not the rotation speed, its the reaction speed, keep low!
// Set this to 1 for just plain rotation w/out drag
var speed=.3;

// This is the rotation speed, set it negative if you want
// it to spin clockwise
var rotation= .2;

// Alter no variables past here!, unless you are good
//---------------------------------------------------

var ns=(document.layers);
var ie=(document.all);
var msg=msg.split('');
var n=msg.length;
var a=size*15;
var currStep=0;
var ymouse=0;
var xmouse=0;
var scrll=0;
var props="<font face="+font+" size="+size+" color="+color+">";

if (ie)
window.pageYOffset=0

// writes the message
   if (ns){
   for (i=0; i < n; i++)
      document.write('<layer name="nsmsg'+i+'" top=0 left=0 height='+a+' width='+a+'><center>'+props+msg[i]+'</font></center></layer>');
   }
   if (ie){
      document.write('<div id="outer" style="position:absolute;top:0px;left:0px"><div style="position:relative">');
      for (i=0; i < n; i++)
         document.write('<div id="iemsg" style="position:absolute;top:0px;left:0;height:'+a+';width:'+a+';text-align:center;font-weight:regular;cursor:default">'+props+msg[i]+'</font></div>');
         document.write('</div></div>');
   }
   (ns)?window.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEMOVE):0;

function Mouse(evnt){
   ymouse = (ns)?evnt.pageY+20-(window.pageYOffset):event.y; // y-position
   xmouse = (ns)?evnt.pageX+20:event.x-20; // x-position
}

if (ns||ie)
(ns)?window.onMouseMove=Mouse:document.onmousemove=Mouse;
y=new Array();
x=new Array();
Y=new Array();
X=new Array();
for (i=0; i < n; i++){
   y[i]=0;
   x[i]=0;
   Y[i]=0;
   X[i]=0;
}

function makecircle(){ // rotation properties
if (ie) outer.style.top=document.body.scrollTop;
currStep-=rotation;
   for (i=0; i < n; i++){ // makes the circle
      var d=(ns)?document.layers['nsmsg'+i]:iemsg[i].style;
      d.top=y[i]+a*Math.sin((currStep+i*1)/3.8)+window.pageYOffset-15;
      d.left=x[i]+a*Math.cos((currStep+i*1)/3.8)*2; // remove *2 for just a plain circle, not oval
   }
}

function drag(){ // makes the resistance
   scrll=(ns)?window.pageYOffset:0;
   y[0]=Math.round(Y[0]+=((ymouse)-Y[0])*speed);
   x[0]=Math.round(X[0]+=((xmouse)-X[0])*speed);
   for (var i=1; i < n; i++){
      y[i]=Math.round(Y[i]+=(y[i-1]-Y[i])*speed);
      x[i]=Math.round(X[i]+=(x[i-1]-X[i])*speed);

   }
   makecircle();
   // not rotation speed, leave at zero
   setTimeout('drag()',10);
}
if (ns||ie)window.onload=drag;
