Perhaps a section could be put together on DIYC for member's website addresses?

I am always interested in seeing what other people have done, and often visit the websites of others. It would be great to have a formal list of sites!

Why not start a thread in the Showing off forum.

I was thinking that, and that may well be the best option, but I thought that it may become difficult to browse once people start posting comments etc in the same topic?

Thoughts?

We could just look at the member list and look at those members who have websites listed. Their homepages are listed.

Here is a good trick I use:
Go to the Members List link
Click on Search Members
Click on Advanced Search
In the Home Page box, enter a . (All URL's will have one)
Order results by post count in descending order under options.
Click Search Now

You now have a list of all members with web sites, listed in order of the number of posts here.

I've spent A LOT of time looking at others ideas and displays this way...

kmc:

Since you've done all the work already, why not just start a page over at the wiki and include them there?

The PHP code does the work...

I just listed the steps to get the data - If you were to cut and paste it into the wiki it would be accurate for that minute, but as soon as adds / changes / deletes occured, it would be outdated.

The best thing to do would to have a link that did what I listed with one click, it would save everyone from having to replicate the steps, and always have current data.

Ah, but, using your steps above I was able to generate this url:

http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/memberlist.php?do=getall&pp=30&order=desc&sort=posts&homepage=.&page=1

Perhaps just using this link would suffice?

That does it!!!
I opened it in a new window and it's perfect!
Maybe a sticky in the show off section with this link?
