The 2000's Bloggers (Part 2)

Updated: Mar 31, 2021

You know how we often talk about the old Créu Official Site being a "Template Shop"? Let's continue the conversation!

Today we have a SPECIAL surprise for you! Keep on reading to find out!!

So, backtracking a bit... literally... whenever you went to and clicked to obtain a certain feature for your Blog - in this example, a Créu Cat mouse cursor - you'd see a pop-up with some options, like this:

From there, you could download the .cur or .ani file to your computer for personal use, or copy the HTML to paste straight into your Blog's code!

Here's an actual code snippet example. Some were meant to be placed at the beginning of your HTML code (<head>). Others, such as images, could be placed within the <body>, like in a column. The snippets usually came with instructions, so no coding knowledge required! In HTML, everything between <!-- --> does not actually show up on the published page.

<!-- CURSOR CRÉU -->                                                                     <!-- ATENÇÃO: COLE ESTE CÓDIGO HTML ENTRE AS TAGS <HEAD> E </HEAD> DE SEU BLOG! -->                                                                     <style type="text/css">BODY{cursor:url("");}

Now, remember I said we have an exclusive treat for you? Créu Yeah!!

A wonderful member of our #creucommunity on the Créu Official Discord Server - the incredible @dzshn who's developed Byter Bot - has kindly volunteered to bring back to life one Créu mouse cursor - with trails too!!

Test out the adorable blast from the past here:

Thank you so much for your contributions, dzshn!!

Alright, so what else did we have?

Oh! One cool (yet slightly annoying) feature from the 2000's were the "MIDI Players". You'd visit a Blog and suddenly this "monotone" music would play. The owner chose the song too, you couldn't change it. Thankfully, there was an option to pause!

If you're curious about what the "MIDI" format sounded like, you may check (I am not responsible for anything on that site, this is for educational purposes only!)

So! As I was saying, we offered Créu-themed MIDI Players, where all you needed to add was your music file!

Sadly, we don't have a demonstration for you guys today, because the code we used back then is a deprecated technology called ActiveX, which is no longer supported in web browsers... But we will update the Blog if something comes up!

For now, enjoy some more old Créu pop-ups!

Last but not least, here's a little homework for you! To honor the fact that 2000's Bloggers usually listed the pages they liked, you can now try this yourself! Just copy & paste the code below into your HTML site - like in the old days - to add a "fanlisting" of Créu Cat or Petita!!

<!-- Código HTML do FANLISTING PETITA --><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="Fanlisting Oficial PETITA" border="0"></a><!-- Fim do código -->

<!-- Código HTML do FANLISTING CRÉU --><a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="Fanlisting Oficial CRÉU" border="0"></a><!-- Fim do código -->

Let us know in the comments how these worked out for you! =^^=

Question: would you like to see more 2000's features come back to life??
