I have to admit, I am no pro when it comes to HTML code. I am a beginner that needs the simplest of explanations and I have had to search multiple websites and their explanations to get one thing done. I thought, why not share what I have learned with everyone who is in the same place as I am so they don't have to?
So, here it goes, to put a button on your blog you first want to create it in a program like Photoshop. I used photos I had taken as backgrounds and graphics on my buttons, then just added text on top. (If you do not have a program like this go to this tutorial to learn how to make one.)
Once you save your button as a JPEG file, you want to post it somewhere online so you can have a web address assigned to it. I just posted the JPEG file of my button on a post on my blog.
To find the web address of your button, all you have to do is right click on the picture and go to "View Image Info"
So, now that you know where the web address of your button is, here is how to put it on your blog:
Copy and Paste into HTML/Java Script Gadget under Edit Layout:
<center><a href="URL address you're Linking to"><img src="URL address of your uploaded image"/></a></center>
The URL address you are linking to is your blog's address.
And, now you know where to find the URL address of your uploaded image.
I hope that helps at least one person! I will be posting more tutorials soon on how to make a text box for your button, scrolling box, and even a header for your blog.
