    Ok, I have been working and working on this blog, next I will do a real site, but in the meantime all this html stuff is killing me. I have no clue how to do the linking of a banner in my website. On my affiliate site there is all this code stuff. I am not sure what it means let alone how to put it on there. Any help would be great. Thanks again all.

    go to the layout part of your blog and use the add a gadget feature ... they are usually on the side and / or bottom. Then use the HTML/JavaScript option... remember that you can not break your blog and you can always edit it later if you mess up. Go play with it.[​IMG]

    edited to add that you need to copy and paste the html code from your affiliate site into the box of the html/javascript box and it will automatically change to a banner when you publish it.

    Alternative way - you can put the banner in the post.

    Hi Robin,

    If you have any HTML questions, you can look at W3schools:

    If all else fails, remember to treat the banner as an image by using the image tag [​IMG].

    Notice that it's a singleton tag. It has no closing tag. Within the tag you can also specify attributes such as width, height, borders, and alternate text (in case the image fails to display).

    Just remember to include the whole path to the image. Usually affiliate banners have it set up for you and you don't have to adjust anything. Just make sure that your affiliate I.D. is correct.

    Good luck,

    ~Newbie Shield~
