Can you remember when you were new to blogging and it was all a bit overwhelming? I certainly can!!! I remember when I first tried to add someone's grab button to my blog. I tried following a few tutorials, but nothing worked. I was missing something, but what?
Yeah, I know... it's easy as. Why couldn't I add it? I absolutely, positively didn't want to ask Mr TMW, but in the end I did. I look back now and wonder why I couldn't solve the problem straight away myself. I was almost there and missing such a tiny thing.
If you are new to blogging and would like to add someone else's button to your blog, this tutorial will show you how. These instructions are for Blogger blogs.
You can, of course, use keyboard shortcuts. Now that you have highlighted all the code, Copy it by right clicking or using the Edit menu.
Go back to your own blog. You can paste the code into one of your posts, or you can put it in your sidebar.
To add the code to one of your posts, make sure you are in HTML mode and then paste the code where you want it to appear in the post. Switch to Compose mode and you will see the button. When you have finished the post, Publish as usual.
To add the code to your sidebar, go to your Dashboard. Click on the arrow and select Layout.
Click on Add a Gadget.
Click in the Content box and Paste the code... Edit > Paste or Right click > Paste
You can add a Title if you wish.
You can reposition the gadget by dragging it to where you want it. Click Save arrangement.
View your blog and you will now see the blog button you have added. Well done!!!
