That Darned Quiltathon Button

It’s making me crazy.  First . . thanks to all of you who are helping those with problems.  Several have been monitoring my comments and helping those who are having problems.  I appreciate that a whole lot.

Some are sending me their login and passwords (I know .. you have to trust me a lot to do that!) and I’m going in and doing it for them.  I’ll help you if you send me that info.

But, here are the steps that should work.  I know there’s an easier way but I just don’t know what it is.  Let me quilt and don’t ask me to mess with this HTML stuff and I’ll be a happy camper.

Try this or send me your login/password and I’ll fix it for you.
1.  Go into your blog and start a new post.
2.  Import a picture, make it centered – here it is – http://www.sunshinequilts.com/Images/qt.jpg
3.  Click on the picture to make it a link.  This is the link – http://www.patchworktimes.com/?page_id=781
4.  In your post, at the top right, click on “Edit HTML”
5.  See where it says “200px”?  Change that 200 to 138.
6.  Copy all that code.  This is what it should be but somehow, it doesn’t always seem to work.

<a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://www.patchworktimes.com/?page_id=781″><img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 138px;” src=”http://www.sunshinequilts.com/Images/qt.jpg” alt=”” border=”0″ /></a>

7.  Go to “layout”, then add a new page element.  Click on the HTML/JavaScript and then copy the info from your blog post or from what I have above and it should work!

    Hey! I think the only problem with your html/jscript for the button is that you’ve got an extra set of quotes imbedded around the image name. When I removed those, it worked just fine without doing the rest of the steps — just added a widget and pasted the code in and there it was.
