blinkies? how do you add custom blinkie to front or home page?

  1. Ok so I have added a blinkie to a post, no problem, but how can you get a custom blinkie to be permanently on your front or home page?? Help I am so new to blogs! can't figure this one out!! Any help would be appreciated. I want to link to my fave digital scrapbook site with a blinkie from them! and I tried widgets..there is none there!

    The blog I need help with is sixtyschild.wordpress.com.

  2. Just put it in a post and make the post Sticky, under the options in the right-hand sidebar when you're writing or editing the post.

  3. You can easily add elements to the sidebar of your site using widgets. In your case, you can use the Text widget to add a .gif file to your sidebar.

    Go to Appearance > Widgets in your dashboard, then drag the Text widget into the zone where you want your blinkie to appear. Then, in the text area that appears, you will be able to paste the code for your image, like so:

    <img src="http://example.wordpress.com/files/2009/07/boat.jpg" width="180" />

    Of course, you will have to replace http://example.wordpress.com/files/2009/07/boat.jpg by the location of your image (for example http://www.theshabbyshoppe.com/images/blinkies/shabbyshoppe_blinkie_carousel.gif)

    If you want to add a link to your image, simply wrap a link around that image code, like so:

    <a href="http://www.theshabbyshoppe.com/scripts/homepage.asp"><img src="http://www.theshabbyshoppe.com/images/blinkies/shabbyshoppe_blinkie_carousel.gif" alt="" border="0" /></a>

  4. Sorry, the second bit of code I pasted does not get displayed right. You can see the correct version here: http://pastebin.com/mbjxJGkN
