OT Blog help Another blog question page 2
Okay, I admit it...I've been seduced by blogging :D This being said, I began my blogging today. I have all sorts of questions, I can't seem to get the answers that I understand when searching on blogger....so, I come to you guys with my questions...TIA for the help
Okay, how do you capture a link on blogger like is done here?! I've searched on blogger, but I do NOT understand the answer!!!

Also, haven't I read that we have KH buttons, how do I link from my blog to KH with the button?

THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Rebecca -

The basic code for a link is this:
what you want link to say

So, a link to KH would be:
KnittingHelp.com

This is how you put a picture on and when you click on the picture you go to the site.


You have to store your images on a computer or on line hosting site. The one I use is photo bucket. Here is a KH button - you are welcome to use the image off mysite (http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h9.../KHbutton1.gif) if you want to.

I hope this helps!

You just copy that code exactly as I posted it above (the one about the picture code



and it will pull the picture from the other site. You don't actually SEE the picture until you republish the blog.

If you look on the right side bar, second section, you'll see the button and how it links -- My blog

With blogger you can also upload pictures directly from your computer to your posts. I use this little trick if I want to add buttons etc.
1. Make a new post and add the picture in it(the little frame button in the panel)
2. In the code for the picture you can also see the address where it's stored
Now you can copy that adress and use it elsewhere. You don't need to save the post you just made, but I save it as a draft, just in case I forget where the picture is.

Thanks, guys! I've started my little blog. I'm sure I'm going to call on you for more help! I'm often confused my computer jargon..lol, if I could paint it or knit it or....interpret it in an arty or a medical way it would be sooo much easier! I went to school for respiratory therapy, for goodness sakes, I don't have the computer/electronics kind of brain...LOL!!

I was successful in putting a film loop in the footer, it wouldn't fit in the sidebar, so I was pleased with that. Now, I must have some photographic software...yeah, baby
