Buttons and Codes

Matt's Button--

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Okay--blogger isn't helping one bit with posting the code, it keeps wanting to fix it for me. So here it is, but you've got to replace the [ ] brackets with <> brackets, instead, for html.

[a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0974934445/
absolutewrite" target="new" title="Get your copy of The Street Smart Writer and support AW, too!"][img src="http://www.mattdinniman.com/aw2.gif" /][/a]


Feel free to swipe it, and if you have trouble with the code, just let me know.


Matt, how hard is it to make the button bigger?

Let's make a couple more, folks, so peeps have a choice--what do you think?

I can make it any size. The current size is just a standard double-height blog button for those who like their buttons organized. I'll make a larger size now.

Hmm. It's showing up with a weird border, in my browser. I dunno if I goofed up the coding, or if it's a photobucket thing, or what.

You're terrific, Matt--thank you!

It's showing up with a border because of the CSS of the blogger template. If you put it on the sidebar, it won't be there. The borders only show up in blog posts.

Also, of you use [code] [/code] (with < instead of the brackets) you can show people the code to post in their blogs.

Mac said...

Will do. :)

Mac said...

Hmm. The [code][/code] thing didn't work.

Matt D. said...

well that's what I get for listening to some other guy's html how-to website. I'm not sure how to do it then. I see it all the time though.

Do you people ever sleep???
That said, thanks for the button Matt and for putting it up, Mac!

Meanwhile, check out 20worstagents.com :) - Miss Snark blogged about it today.

I want to start a pool on how long it stays up - the use of Bab's image is problematic...

Added it to my site. Thanks.

Kira said...

Got it added to mine, too! Thanks Matt and Mac!

And that 20worstagents.com page is going to get someone in trouble...anyone know who's behind it?

Jackie said...

Got the button added! Thanks so much, Mac. I'm also adding you to my (growing) list of blogs to read.

Tossed it on both of my blogs...

Mac said...

Y'all are beautiful. *g* Matt D gets the real thanks, though!

Jill said...

Ok - I'm going to try posting that code too. I'm so out of it though - can you direct me to why AW is in save mode!? That sounds very scary!
