Active Rain Tutorial- How To Make Buttons For Your Blog and Profile
This is one of the most frequently asked questions on our blog. I receive a lot of emails asking me how I got the buttons on our blog. This is a simple process. You will be able to follow the steps quite easily.
You first have to create the button. After you create your button you need to add the URL link to where you want the button to take your visitor should they click on a particular button. You add the URL through your Active Rain editor.
There are a lot of Free button creation websites all over the Internet. This is the one that I like because it is easy and has very few steps. Most of the free button making websites I have checked out all want you to add a link back to them in return.
Enter the text as directed. The instructions are simple to follow.
Click on get the code.
You then are going to copy and paste this code in your html editor on Active Rain.
When you are in Active Rain editor, click on the html tab. Once in this editor, scroll down to where you are going to want your button to appear. Here you will paste the code.
Then click on publish to draft to make sure it all works. After you have posted to draft go back into the WYSIWYG editor and click on the button. Then click on the link tab at the top of the editor and enter the URL that you want the button to take your visitor to. Once you are happy with the placement you can publish to public and you are done! Here is the button site for the Twitter follow birdies. You can make your "follow me on Twitter " button here and follow the same copy and paste procedure above.
Once you have the buttons published on one of your posts you can copy and paste the entire button from post to post. You can also store your buttons on an unpublished page on your website.
You can also place your buttons in this same manner on your Active Rain profile.
