Introducing: the JKHub Bar
The JKHub Network is a network of loosely related Jedi Academy websites, joined together by the JKHub Bar. You can view the bar at the top of this website. A variety of clans, modders, and other websites related to the game use it. The bar provides the latest news, as well as a link to all other websites using it. It can be customized to match the look of your site, and if you don't know how to install it, we're willing to do it for you.
Why use it?
There are a number of very good reasons to use the bar. These include:
- Free advertisements. All websites using the bar are linked to on the bar. This means visitors to any site that uses the bar might also find your own website, leading to an increase in traffic no matter how large or small your site is.
- Supporting the community. By using the bar, you are supporting websites that may otherwise not receive much traffic. Obscure mods, small clans, and so forth.
- No cost in traffic. All links on the JKHub Bar open in a new tab, so visitors don't leave your site unless they actually want to.
- Staying in touch. By using the bar, you will be able to easily read the latest Jedi Academy related news, such as mod releases, security advisories, interviews, and much more.
There are a few requirements to being added to the JKHub bar:
- Your website or project must have some activity. We only enforce this guideline very loosely - if you're wondering whether your site is active enough, it probably is - but we will remove disbanded clans from the bar, for instance.
- it must be related to Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
- The bar should be present on (almost) every page of your website.
We reserve the right to remove your site from the bar at any time. We will only do this if the above requirements are not met, or in what we consider to be extreme cases (such as mods filled with stolen content). The main reason for these requirements is to keep the bar from being filled with empty, unavailable, or irrelevant websites (such as those of disbanded clans).
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are there any commercial ads on the JKHub Bar?
Q: Is there spyware, or anything similarly questionable, on the JKHub bar?
Q: Does JKHub profit, or in any way make money, out of the JKHub bar?
Q: How customizable is the bar?
A: Very. You can customize the background color, text color, and more. By default, we also provide a choice of both a light and a dark style.
Q: How does the JKHub bar impact page load times?
A: Though there will obviously be some impact on page load times, as with any script you might add to your site, we have done everything we can to minimize it. The code behind the bar is extremely lightweight. The code is minified, served via a CDN, and loaded asynchronously.
Q: My site is related to Jedi Outcast, or another Jedi Knight game. Can I still install the bar on my site?
A: No. Though there's technically nothing stopping you from installing the bar on your site, we will not add your site to it unless it is related to Jedi Academy. Only Jedi Academy related websites will be added to the bar at this time.
Q: I have a question that's not listed here! What do I do?
A: Feel free to ask us. We don't bite.
