A Quick How-To

i've had a few people ask about my scrolling blog list on my side-bar, so i thought i'd do a simple how-to post, in case you want to try one on your blog. (these instructions are blogger specific.)

step 1: go to your design page
step 2: click "add a gadget" on your sidebar
step 3: specify that you want to add HTML/javascript
step 4: copy and paste this code into your text box:




step 5: go to your favorite blogs and copy their button codes
step 6: paste the codes into the scrolling buttons code and press save
step 7: sit back and enjoy the parade!

FYI: the width and height are standard, but can be changed, as well as the "scrollamount", which is your speed. it's set to 5, which is what i have mine on, but feel free to change it if you want yours to go faster or slower. oh, and you aren't limited to the number of buttons you can add

Ah, thanks! Somebody asked me recently how to do a scroll as well...I'm going to reference your post, because I can't remember where I got it from. :-)

ROCK AWESOME!!! Bring on the buttons!!!

Oh no! For some reason mine doesn't work.. I had to type it out and even still.. It would only put about 3 buttons and that's it. I must be doing something wrong. I'll keep trying though :)

I gave a blog award, if you're into that sort of thing. I would love to see the rules you'd make:
