sidebar plugin

  1. drmike, yet again I don't know quite what you're telling me to do. (I know, I know. Sigh.)

    I'll look at the FAQ again -- I was trying statcounter because I've used it before and liked it.

  2. Go to Dashboard -> Bookmarks -> Add bookmarks

    URL: http: //www.statcounter.com/ (Note space added to get it to show up here. Make sure you don't put it in there.)

    Name: StatCounter
    Description: counter create hit

    Click open the Advanced tab.

    Image URI: http: //c14.statcounter.com/counter.php?sc_project=1450545&java=0&security=916c07b8&invisible=0
    (Again, space added to get it to show up here. Make sure you delete it when you carry it over)

    Assign it to a category.

    Click on Add bookmark.

    Remember that the sidebars are cached so it may take a few minutes to show up.

    Hope this helps,

  3. Hi
    I'm not certain if this discussion is still active but it's relevant to my question so I'll try here before starting a new thread.
    What I'm trying to do is also adding code into the sidebar - in my case, to add a 'subscribe to bloglines' button, rather than statcounter, but i figure the steps would be the same. but i'm confused, i think. i tried what someone said in this thread, about adding as a bookmark or link, with category, and making visible. But mine didn't appear. The code for making it appear (which I got from the Bloglines site) is
    <img src="http://www.bloglines.com/images/lang/default/sub_modern3.gif" border="0" alt="Subscribe with Bloglines" />

    The code you guys seem to be working with is a URL (http://...) - which can be 'read' as a bookmark, but mine can't.
    Anyone have a suggestion?
    Thanks
    Lisa

  4. It might not be appearing anymore because we no longer have control over displaying images within a link.

    Best bet would be to create a text widget and copy and paste the html in there.

    Hope this helps,

  5. You need to split the bookmark (if you're using the bookmark) into sections. There's something stange about the link given above and I can't get into Bloglines right now to figure it out, but try this:

    In the Name box put "Subscribe to Bloglines".

    In the Address box put the URL for the subscribe to bloglines.

    In the Description box put anything you like.

    Now scroll down the page and in the "image address" box put:

    http://www.bloglines.com/images/lang/default/sub_modern3.gif

    See if that works.

    Fingers crossed!

  6. Hi Cornell, DrMike, anyone else... nope, I'm not quite there. I put in the image code you suggested there, and the same for a technorati one, but something's not right. Take a look; lower left sidebar.

  7. I took them off; looked sloppy. I'll do some hunting for step-by-step on Google
