Weellll, I am starting up a new blog just as a show case for the handbags I make and I would like to make a button for the blog. It'll just have the name on it and a couple of colours. Because I don't know how it all works, I'm not sure what information to supply.

sorry, i'm being a bit thick here. so, you already have the image for the button but you want the coding so people can copy and paste it into their blogs and have it link back to your site?

All you would have to do is create the button you want and then post it so people can snag it for their blogs or sites. All they would need would be the URL (address) that they should link the button to. So, your handbag blog URL! Sounds fun!

I have a how to on my one deep breath blog today... you can very likely figure it out for your button from that. Let me know if you need more help... For photohosting purposes you will need to post your button to your blog, upload it to flickr or photobucket first. (The image should be resized to around 150 to 160 by 50 or so)

yes, i see you already have included buttons on your blog here. the code will be the same, obviously with your image and site addresses in the code instead of those others.

now, i think you have the option of going the descriptive route like jennifer's or

you can type in the string of code, but wherever there is an open bracket < type in < instead. that way the web page will not try to convert the code string into ''something meaningful''.

eg. <a href="http://My Site" /> <img style="MARGIN: 0px 0px 0px 0px; CURSOR: hand" alt="My Site" src="http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/6089/1804/320/MY BUTTON.jpg" /> </a>

then it will appear as code and people can copy and paste direct.

ha ha foiled again.

the comments editor doesn't like it...

(the & symbol here)lt instead of <

no gaps - just the & followed immediately by lt.

is that okay? :o)
