This is a tutorial on how to place HTML coded grapics to your sidebar. Please follow the steps below.
When you get to the page where the code is found, copy it into your browser. You do this by hitting Alt and the letter C at the same time.
Then, go to your blog and look up at the top where it says "Customize." Click there.
When the page loads, click "Add a Page Element."
That will take you to a pop-up. There you will see a lot of ways to add something to your blog.
Third down on the right you will see HTML Script. Click there.
Another window will open and you will see much the same as you do when you post on your blog.
In the upper right corner, you will see the words "Rich Text."
Click there and it will change to "Edit HTML."
When that window opens, just paste the code from your browser by hitting Alt and the letter V at the same time.
You will see the code appear. Be sure that the HTML embed code is closed at the end of it. Mine kept disappearing and if it does, the graphic will not show. Instead, you will only see the code. You close the embed by typing a / embed > without any spaces. I have to put spaces here so it will appear.
Once you have the entire code pasted into the feature, click "Save Changes."
The window will disappear and you will be back to the customize page.
In the upper right-hand corner you will see "Save." Click there and everything will be saved.
I know it sounds complicated, but it's not really. It just takes a little getting used to. Follow these steps one-by-one and if you have any further problems, be sure to let me know.
