The HubPages Affiliate Dashboard Tool - 60DC
A Quick DashBoard Tool for Affiliates who use HubPages
I spent a few hours today, purchasing Camtasia v7, finding my old webcam and then looking all over the net for a working driver to get it working.
The purpose was to create a tutorial on how to set up your Firefox browser to help perform your everyday promotion and backlinking activities quicker.
As I imagined what would be the best add-ons to suggest without over complicating things, I kept getting an image of my Opera Speed Dial set up. I dont use Opera frequently, so the Speed Dial is more of a gimmick but I couldnt get the image out of my mind.
So I ended up popping in an audiobook and creating a quick layout for common links a HubPages user and affiliate would probably access. I intended to use the image in my tutorial - but eventually, figured, why not pop in some hot spots and make it a live dashboard!
So, using Adobe Fireworks CS3 I eyeballed this page and used my own bookmarks toolbar as the basis for the link layout and hierarchy.
Unfortunately, its a circa 2000 style image based page but it should load fast and do the deed. If it helps you are free to use it!

I think the top right - HubPages Quick Links is self explanatory!

Set the dashboard as your home page
In Internet Explorer
Go to the Tools link in your top most region of the browser - then select Internet Options - then select General - the use the Home Page option, enter the address
or alternately, just click "Use Current"
Use the same directions OR just drag the favicon in your URL bar into the little home icon while the site of choice is displayed - it asks if you want to make your home page- and your all set!
