This is certainly a very effective way to market products and bring more attention to pages you want visitors to focus.

1. Download required files

Download and, extract it. Your peel/ folder should contain these following files:

* pageear_b.swf

* pageear_b.jpg

* pageear_s.swf

* pageear_s.jpg


Plan where you should upload this folder at later stage. For webpage users, you are suggested to upload peel/ inside wp-content/themes/your_current_theme/. Fow now, let’s fire up your favorite text and image editor.

2. Edit pageear.js

Open peel.js with your favorite text editor. Change these following settings:

1. jaaspeel.ad_url – URL you intend to point to.

2. jaaspeel.small_path – Path to pageear_s.swf

3. jaaspeel.small_image – Path to pageear_s.jpg

4. jaaspeel.big_path – Path to pageear_b.swf

5. jaaspeel.big_image – Path to pageear_b.jpg

3. Edit the images

* pageear_s.jpg – The small background visitors see before content behind gets revealed. Edit if you’d like to match it with your background.

* pageear_b.jpg– What visitors will see after pointing their mouse to ‘peel the page off’. This is the image you’ll want to edit.

Both flash files, pageear_s.swf and pageear_b.swf can be left un-touch.

4. Upload files

Upload the entire peel/ folder to via FTP your web account. Make sure it matches with the settings you’ve entered earlier in Step 2.

5. Add Javascript in header

Add the following Javascript after <title> before </head>.
