  5. I WANT! Will most likely need my hot techie guy, though. Gimme couple days… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Poetic Bloomings on said:

    The link has been corrected. Anyone who had posted the badge on your site, thanks. But you will have to change the HTML code to reflect the change and add the link.

    I am definatly going for the baby-step stage of blogging! and more
    My first blogging was with PAD! You are #2 (but only on the clock time)
    I do not have a blog or website. Have yet to jump in there.
    Have a Twitter name (account?) , but have yet to try to twit! You (I) could say I am an un-twittered Twit…
    At least I have jumped into the edge of facebook – and have some poems on my wall. ’cause I was told; Need it for your Platform
    Like whimsyqyzma I need techie help to ffind and it the pieces together and make them work.
    I’m past conception, but still in labor.
    …and looking for where to post a poem on this site! ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Can someone give us a blow-by-blow of how to put the badge in the sidebar? Please? I tried but nothing happened.

      Viv, you’re on wordpress. On the wp bar that has your little icon and title of your blog, roll the cursor over your name (Vivinfrance’s…) Menu drops to reveal Dash board. click this.
      When the Dashboard loads, along the left hand side the menu bar has all these functions listed. Look for appearance, and then widgets. Click here. In the list that shows on the screen, find “Text”. Click and drag it up to your blog functions on the right side. Drop the TEXT link in position there and when the box opens up, paste the HTML I had provided, there. Save and it should appear on your blog when you view it. I know it sounds rather complex, but it’s not too terribly difficult is you have a bit of patience and follow the steps.

  9. The html code is written incorrectly. Use this:

  10. Oh for goodness sake…

    It won’t let me put the code here. Sorry Viv. I have mine working now.

  11. Laurie Kolp on said:

    Yeah! Happy Birthday!!

  12. Viv, Don’t use the text box widget; use the imagine widget, and then enter in the jpg’s url in the line where it ask for it.

      Thanks Misk. I was in the process of working out the kinks, but I should have known our poets would have gotten on board immediately before it was fully functional. I was going to experiment with the HTML in the image widget, but it was a bad day and getting late. Your help in the R&D is very valuable. Thanks again. W.

  13. Very pretty, guys.

  14. Poetic Bloomings on said:

    As an aside, the size of the badge can be manipulated by changing the height/width numbers to less than 150 (the default).

  15. Hi!
    Happy first birthday! You’ve achieved so much in one year!
    Many happy returns, Poetic Bloomings!

  16. Drats. I read here that the link didn’t work, so I deleted the code that I had that showed the image on my blog. Then I copy and pasted the new code, only to have it NOT show. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Go to the P.B.BADGE tab above and use the code posted there. It worked on my secondary blog.

  19. I can’t get this to work! Helllllp! I am on WordPress, and have tried everything above. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    When I try to paste the url address into the widget window (on “image”) it appears for a moment, then disappears when I try to save. Any tips?
