Blockquote, quotey thing, what?

Blockquote, quotey thing, what?

How do I do that box thing?   The question of the week from a few of you lovelies that have downloaded the premade template is how to do a BLOCKQUOTE. Most of the questioners didn’t even know what it was called. Blockquote: In HTML and XHTML, the blockquote element defines a block quotation within the text. It is signified by the code <blockquote> Yo stuff here </blockquote> BUT — handy as Blogger is — they have an icon for your blockquote. So all you have to do is highlight the text you want to be a blockquote and then find the icon. Look for the one that is a “ Blockquotes are also standard in WordPress – so don’t feel left out my fairer readers — check your toolbar for those quotes too. They are there. Now — you have to have your blockquotes style for them to look like a box. But, most templates come standard with a blockquote style of inset and italicized.    ...

Transferring from Blogger to WordPress

I can’t say this is the end-all tutorial – but this is how it goes and how I did the transfer. Firstly, I recommend going WordPress.org – using the free wordpress.com interface you will run into a lot of problems, mainly you can’t run scripts or add certain widgets, edit CSS and things like that, which you can do within the blogger interface. But, what this means is that you have to pay a company for hosting. I recommend GoDaddy, mainly because their tech support is amazing. Every time I call my problem is rectified, not to mention the techs are always friendly and speak clearly and at my level of understanding – no quasi-superior-tech-speak. They are also affordable, if you purchase a year of hosting you’ll get a domain name for only $1.99, it equals to about $60 a year. First things first, let’s buy our hosting package. Go to GoDaddy.com Click on Hosting & Servers in the top green navigation. The option I recommend is the Economy 4GH – you can choose between 3 months – 36 months. You want to keep the operating system with Linux, which is default (the penguin). You get the option to purchase a secure SSL – you would do this if you were running a shopping cart, so you don’t need this. Once you add this to your cart, you will get a TON of other options, this is the one thing that drives me crazy about the GoDaddy.com check out process. It is a lot of stuff to wade through. You really don’t need any of it, except if you...

I want to be symmetrical! Line up those sidebar images.

I want to be symmetrical! Line up those sidebar images.

If you have the perfectly lined-up OCD bug like I do, you might want your “Grab Buttons” and other images lined up on your blog’s sidebar. Or you might have a tendency to like blogs with BIG buttons that pop out your sidebars.  This is how to fix it.Let’s look at the PJD sidebar. You see how every button is rather uneven and the last button – well who designed that :)? Way too big! Before trying this out, you might want to back up your current HTML gadget in a TXT file (try to stay out of Word it adds it’s own HTML and span styles) Here is how fix it with something called a width attribute. The first thing we have to take a look at is the grab code that you are provided with. Let’s use the PJD button for an example, and it is pretty standard. Most blogs have this standard down. <center><a href=”http://parajunkeedesign.blogspot.com/”><img border=”0″ src=”http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3074/4562477991_8bfee16c3c_o.png” /></a></center> Break down the code. <center> Is telling your browser to center the image. The <a href> tag is telling your browser what to link to.  So the file is linking to http://.parajunkeedesign.blogspot.com Then You have your <img> tag which is telling the browser what image to use.  This is where you are going to make your change. There are a few attributes that can go within an IMG tag. This one has very little, but you can get attributes like: *Note for HTML gurus, these are just some of your optional attributes, there are a lot more event and standard attributes you can attach to an IMG tag. ...
How to Scroll Your Blog Roll!

How to Scroll Your Blog Roll!

Scroll Your Roll With Marquee! Are your bloggy buttons getting out of hand? Want to show love for your fellow bloggers, but your sidebars are getting way too crowded? This post can help you fix that. Have you noticed those fancy little scrolling bloggy buttons on other’s sites? Well that is nothing but a simple HTML tag that is easy to use in an HTML/Javascript gadget.  All you need to do is copy and paste some text…and have a little bit of understanding so you don’t delete anything accidentally. First off, let me show you what the bones of my gadget look like on Parajunkee.com What we will be concerning ourselves with is the first couple of lines of text.  The one that opens up with marquee. Now you can copy and paste what I have, and use it, but if you want to edit it, and modify it to meet your needs, I’ll explain how to do that. First off here is the code: <marquee direction=”up” width=”95%” onmouseover=”this.stop()” scrollamount=”5″ onmouseout=”this.start()” height=”250″ align=”left”> Breaking it down the <marquee is telling your browser that this is going to scroll. You open the code with that tag. The next information I have is telling the browser what to do with that marquee tag. direction=”up” – lets the browser know to go up. You can replace UP with RIGHT LEFT & DOWN width=”95%” – The default for the marquee is 100%, but this might cause some inconsistencies with your sidebar. A good rule of thumb is that I set my widths on most of my sidebar objects as either 98% or 95%...
