Since tomorrow is the sixth anniversary of September 11th, I’ve made a little website corner banner for folks who’d like to show that they’ll never forget the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that day.
I’m hosting the graphic on my Photobucket account, so if you’d like to use this logo on your personal blog, you can just copy and paste the code below and it should work just fine without “costing” me any bandwidth. If you’d like to use this on a website, however, I’d like it if you could download it to your computer and place it on your server.
Installation Instructions (for Blogger)
1. Log into Blogger, go to your blog, and click on the “template” tab on the right. There, select the “edit html” option at the top to view your complete template. Do not check “expand widget templates” as you don’t need to see all of that.
2. In the old Blogger, locate in your html. In the new Blogger, locate ]]> in the html. In either one, that line is located toward the top of the html before the actual blog body starts. Copy and paste the css below *before* the line I asked you to locate.
It’s important that you do *not* alter this css in any way because that will most likely stop it from working correctly. However, if you have the Blogger bar at the top like I do, set the top: value to 30 instead of 3. That will keep it from covering the Blogger bar.
3. When you’re finished with the second step, scroll down just a little further in your html and look for . Then copy and paste the html below and paste it in the first line below the tag.
If you have the graphic saved to your own website host or Photobucket account, you only need to replace the image link with yours for it to work correctly. Make sure that the image format stays .png because otherwise it will no longer be transparent and with the light gray shadow underneath.
4. Save your template and enjoy.
