Hi.  I'm 2 weeks new to blogging & I want to create a button for my blog.  I have my 125x125 button already created & on flickr.  However, I'm having trouble doing the html part.  I think it's probably simple, but for some reason, I can't find a good site to teach me how.  Thanks!

Go into Flickr.  Log in. Up on top you will see *Actions* with an email icon, Twitter icon, Facebook icon. Click the down arrow to bring up the option *Grab the HTML/BBC code*.  Copy and paste that code.  Go into blogger & into the design section.  Click on add a gadget and selection HTML.  Paste the code. Now you need to change the part of the HTML that links back to your flickr account to be the link to your blog.  It's the part after <a href.

 

Hope that helps?

Hi Tracy - See if this blog post helps with the button install: http://www.creativepatience.com/blog/coding/blog-button-install/

Hi,

Here is the code I am using that allows a person looking at your blog to grab the code to put your button on their blog. The first part is the button code itself (in bold) and the second part is the part where the people can copy the code for themselves.

<center><a href="YOUR BLOG'S URL" title="BLOG TITLE"><img src="URL TO YOUR IMAGE" alt="BLOG TITLE" /></a><br/>

 <textarea><a href="BLOG URL" title="BLOG TITLE" target="blank"><img src="IMAGE URL" alt="BLOG TITLE" /></a></textarea></center>

 

I have this entire code in an html widget that is labeled Grab My button! or something like that. This is the entire widget.

I hope this helps, if not feel free to ask questions and I will try to help to the best of my ability. :)

my blog is lynifer.blogspot.com

thanks for your help ladies...I'm almost there! I think I did all this; however, the button does not appear on my blog. The widget is there with the scroll box and instead of the button, it's a little X...like the image is not coming through. Any advice? I copied the photo stream URL from flickr. Thanks! I really apprecite it.
Try replacing the code in the src="..." with this URL instead: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2491/5818205377_04bb18d609_m.jpg
