Sidebar Positions

Set-up:
  1. Find a suitable satellite image to display. Here are two links which will help you find such an image in the United States:

    http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/west/
    http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/goes/east/

    Sidebar Extra One
    Sidebar Extra Two

    Code:
    <div class="sidebar_wrapper">
    <a href="{$xenOptions.satelliteSidebarImage}"><img src="{$xenOptions.satelliteSidebarImage}?{$serverTime}" width="100%"></a><a href="{$xenOptions.satelliteSidebarImage}">{xen:phrase satellite_large_view}</a>
    </div>
