I've just uploaded two new blocks in the Downloads section. The're not a lot, but I thought I'd offer them up anyway.
  • Affiliates block - This block allows you to create an Affiliates block. Many CMS solutions such as InVision Power Board, provide an affiliates section to allow site operators to form rings of content providers with similiar interests. It's a form of advertising to generate more hits, and provide visitors with access to like minded sites.
  • EFF Block - A block to allow users to login to the EFF Action Center from your site.
If you have any questions you can contact me through my site. Thanx again to the Geeklog team for puttin together such a great CMS package!

At this time you can't do either. The block really just utilizes the built in Geeklog links system. I see a lot of sites using logo's, and I thought about adding in that functionality. In doin so, I'd have to create some separate tables or expand on the tables geeklog uses for links (separate tables would probably be best). I don't have any plans for upgrading it right now, but if I get enough people requesting that type of stuff maybe I'll expand on it. ---Paul 'T1Pimp' http://www.Huggybeer.com - Geek news with attitude

I for one would love to see a way to have the link open a new window, so people don't actually leave the site. Maybe the code for the original links could be modified to allow this.
