Please note that these CD campaign pages have been frozen as of 14-1-2005, and will not be updated for the time being. However, they will still remain here as an information resource for people still encountering problems with their CDs.

Web site home-page buttons
Help to spread the word about corrupt audio discs, and show your
support for our campaign -- put one of these buttons on your web-site
See below for instructions.
- Save a copy of the image that you prefer to your hard drive by
right-clicking on it and selecting "Save image" (or whatever means
your browser provides to save images)
- Upload that image to your web-site's home directory
- Select and Copy the HTML code out of the box immediately to the
right of the image, and paste it into your web-site home-page file
(usually index.html or default.htm). The code assumes that the image
file will be in the same directory on your web-site as the home-page
- Upload your new home-page file to your web-site.
- Now test your web-site home page -- clicking on the new button
should take you to our "Quick Summary" page.
- Job done.
Many thanks for your support!
Experts can naturally adapt all this as they wish, but we would
prefer that you took copies of the images to save putting any extra
load on our server.
If you are an artist, and you think you could design a button that
gets the point over well, that people would feel happy about putting
on their web-site, and that you would be willing to share with us,
please let us know. It
would be good to have a few different button styles available so that
people can pick the one that suits them best.
