How to Place HTML Graphics in Your Sidebar

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.

  8. Granny,

    It's always good to have a copy just in case we forget a step. I ran through the entire procedure while I wrote the post. Glad you can use it.

    Have a blessed week.

  9. It is great to share your knowledge with others, thanks for including me in your blogroll. I will put you on mine. I will look forward to reading your post about bees.

  10. Vic Grace,

    You have been on my blogroll for a while now. Thanks for adding me to yours. You're always welcome. I will do my best to get my bee post up early tomorrow.

  11. Thanks for the help Mary. It's late for me (school night) so I'll work on this tomorrow afternoon.

  12. willow,

    Whenever you get the chance to work on it is fine. The post will be there and if you need further help, just let me know.

    Have a great week filled with many blessings.

  13. Mary,
    This is a very good tutorial. Although I don't have a problem putting graphics in my sidebar, I have loads to learn. You seem to be very knowledgable!!

  14. Susie,

    LOL I'm not very knowledgeable and know very little about HTML. This is what I've learned since starting my blog here in September. I love working with graphics. It is my way of being creative, besides the writing. I did know a little HTML before I came here, but hadn't used it for some time. Life is a learning experience.

    Blessings for the coming week.

  15. Mary,

    Thank you! I copy and pasted your instructions into a notepad so I can keep them handy!
