I'm New At This Whole Blogging Thing...

...and I'm asking your help.  Why oh why can't I get the cute little buttons that people having on their link party sites to post on mine?  It comes out like this: <a border="0" href="http://abowlfulloflemons.blogspot.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t99/tonihammersley/BFOLprojectbutton.jpg" /></a>

Grrrrrr.....I wish I could figure this out.  So, sorry that I haven't put any cute buttons up on my site yet, but I'm still learning.


  1. Try posting it in the Edit HTML tab instead of the Compose tab. Or are you talking sidebar?

  2. I looked at it that way and it's confusing....this may take a while for me to figure out...

  3. Next time we get together near a computer I'll try to help you out ; )

  4. Thanks! That sounds like a plan!

  5. First thing, check your code. If you're not used to working with html, then use an online source to check it, such as this (I'm hoping that links are allowed in comments! :-)

    Secondly, for someone to troubleshoot, it's best to know exactly what you mean and where you are attempting to do it...so that we spend less time figuring that out and more time on your specific issue.

    If you are putting this on the sidebar (I am assuming), what have you done so far and where? You can email me through my profile, if you wish.

    Good luck figuring this out. I know how maddening it can be!
