How do you add html codes?
How do you add html codes to your blog? Be specific please and thank you! :0))
When you go to the Write page, at the top of the Write box are two tabs: one says Visual and one says Code. If you click on the Code one you’ll get taken to the HTML editor, which is where you can insert any code you want in a post.
If you want code in your sidebar, you have to use a text widget under Presentation–> sidebar widgets and you have to be using a theme that allows widgets.
I’m new to WordPress. I’m trying to add some code from http://www.petfinder.com:
<p><b><color #ff3366=>Click the picture to search for pets in your own zip code. Search by breed, zip code, age, gender, etc.</color></b></p> <!--THE FOLLOWING CODE IS COPYRIGHT PETFINDER.COM 2000,2001--> <!--YOU MAY FIND UPDATES AND INFORMATION ABOUT THIS FEATURE AT www.petfinder.com/tools/featuredpet/--> <!--THE INFORMATION GENERATED BY THIS CODE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.--> <!--PETFINDER FEATURED PET START--> <script src="http://fpm.petfinder.com/fp/modpet.cgi?font=Arial&fontsize=2&fontcolor=000000&search=&state=&shelter=&animal=&age=&ref=OS0OuERWR4CWMzG"></script> <!--PETFINDER FEATURED PET END-->
Hi, I’m trying to insert an html code in a blog entry but I’m confused on why the picture/logo doesn’t come out. What do I have to do?
Here it is:
<a href="http://mingle2.com/blog-addiction" style="color: #D64B32; text-decoration: none; display: block; width: 286px; height: 128px; padding-top: 50px; padding-left: 17px; background: url(http://mingle2.com/img/bb/blog_addiction/badge.jpg) no-repeat; font-family: Times New Roman, sans-serif; font-size: 30px;">52%<span style="display: none;">How Addicted to Blogging Are You?</span></a><p><small>Mingle<sup>2</sup> - <a href="http://mingle2.com" style="color: #ccc;">Dating Site</a></small></p>
The url to the image needs single quote marks around it. And I wonder if there really should be a forward slash between addiction and badge?
I already put the single quote marks around the code, but nothing happened. Am i doing something wrong?
Additional info: I could see the image on the visual rich editor when I paste the badge html code, but when I preview the post, the image does not come out. Also, I noticed that when I save the post, the code becomes different?
You need to post the code into the Code editor. Are you doing that? Just click the tabs on the top of the Write box.
Yup. I posted the code into the code editor
AAAAhh haaaaa. Is it that padding? Try it without as a test?
Plus we can not be 100% sure that your code is preciselywhat you have.
eg is there a space between url and the bracket? There shouldnt be.
Its going to be something minor and silly. Just need to work thru the possibilities.
Plus that display:none in the span looks fishy to me. If it is display none it may not show the background either. Just an idea.
custom style attributes of the Anchor element are getting stripped off by WP filters.
the code you’ve posted won’t work on .com, it has to be redone .
see ‘Image Links’ section at: http://faq.wordpress.com/2007/07/01/how-to-write-links/
this is so technical to me. i can’t understand :( i can’t redo it coz i dont know how lol
Then the easiest thing to do is drop it. Use OK Cupid quizzes, Blogthings, or Quizilla. They work on WP.com.
yeah. just did
I can’t insert html code about my custom cursor.
Widgets>Text 1 is not work
You cannot make a custom cursor in your WordPress.com blog. Please read the other thread you started on the same issue.
You don’t use widgets to change the basic functionality or appearance of the blog. They’re just add-ons in the sidebar.
Can I insert my custom playlist?
sonific.com dosen’t have Avril Lavigne’s song
Or Widgets>Box.net file sharing
