A Quick Tip!

Hi this is Erika . . . ssshhh!  Don't tell Misty I'm posting something.  She's the one who does the posts while I do all the "behind the scenes" designing.  But she's off running errands this afternoon and I just need to share a little tip with you all about blog buttons.

But you have to promise you won't tell on me first!


Cross your heart?
Hope to die?
Stick a needle in your eye?

Okay here goes.

We all grab blog buttons and put them on our own blogs but for some reason not everyone does the code "perfect".  So sometimes you paste one onto your blog and your list of blog buttons goes something like this.

Okay, so it's usually not that off because your sidebar isn't as wide as a post.  But you get my point right?  Some are nicely centered and some just aren't.

Here's the key.

Ssshhh!  Remember you can't tell.

If the button code doesn't start with this  <center>  it won't be centered and it just makes everything look like doo doo.  Well maybe not doo doo but it drives me nuts!  And our blogs should look tidy and neat right?!

So if the button code doesn't have that to start just add it and VOILA!  Nice pretty row of buttons.

(This also works to center any html you add in a gadget like Feedjit, etc.)

Now I've got to get back to my "real" job before Misty comes back.

Remember you promised!  

And please keep those sidebars tidy!
