    Hi Kristina,

    I've been trying to place the button on the sidebar of Style Stitch but the image doesn't show up. I've tried uploading it myself and it still doesn't work. Just wondering if you know of any other bloggers are having similar issues or how to fix it?

    Thanks!

      Hey girlie! Which button are you having trouble with?

      I've tried the codes and all are working for me. If you want to try hosting the image on another server such as imageshack.us that might work better for you. I'm sorry I'm not sure why it's not working for you — it's been working for nearly everyone else!

      One thing you can try is copying the code, opening Textedit (mac) or a text program like wordpad in windows, and pasting it in there first. make sure there are no curly quotes, etc. Then, place it directly in your html code for your sidebar (like a widget etc). Once you've done that, if it still doesn't work, leave it upthere so I can see what is going on, and write me back. Sorry for the problems, we'll get it sorted out!

    Great, will definitely do this to participate in the maxi dress one. Just in time too! I took some photos with my new maxi yesterday, featuring my beloved yorkie Sasha Bella. =)

    Does anyone know how to put the button on a blog on WordPress? I have moved mine from blogspot to wordpress and am still getting used to how everything works. I'd really like to participate but don't know where to post the code for the button to get in the sidebar!

    Hi,

    I would love to participate but I do not know know how to add widgets to tumblr. Is that possible, if so how do I do it!?

    Best,

      I'm not sure as I don't know if tumblr uses widgets. You will have to check with the theme creator or get someone who knows Tumblr themes to insert the code directly into your theme. Sorry!

      • says

        For my tumblr it usually works best if I just place the code for the button in the "About" section! :) It works on most themes. Hope that helps!

    I am so sorry to bug you, but I can't seem to figure out this whole link thing… I just submitted my photo and hope I did it correctly. I put the link in the photo back to your site, is that right?

    I know you're busy, but if you have a minute- could you please let me know if you receive my photo for the Arm Party contest! Thank you so much!

    I just missed the sequins by a day :-( I’m looking forward to the next assignment but its really cool to see all the participants. Even managed to find a few new bloggers to follow. I’m trying to resize the banner to fit my blog (rebellious blog) :-) Anyway, can’t wait to participate in the next activity.
