Hello Broomhilda,

You just want to add a new button, correct ?

You can modify the affiliate widget here : Administration Panel > Modules > Forum widgets management

Edit Edit the affiliate module. You can create a simple button with a little bit of HTML :

Code:
<a href="//example.com"><img src="//myimage.gif" /></a>

Replace http://example.com by the URL of your affiliates website

Replace http://mymage.gif by the URL of your affiliates button image

Other forums also provide their button code, so all you need to do is paste it in the widget with zero editing, except for the widget. Wink

That didn't work...why can't people just make it simple and just give everyone the coding without it having to be modified  confused 
This is what I have for their coding this is the coding as it is in notebook..what do I do with this...


ok what just happened...it is working now why isn't it working on my site.. confused  confused  confused  confused 




I don't know what I did but it is working now I took the button off of here I figured that wasn't allowed..

It isn't the same way as you have me do it..so I don't know what I did..

You can try adding this to your affiliates widget :
Code:
<a href="http://www.affinitysims.com/IPB/index.php?app=uportal"><img src="http://i622.photobucket.com/albums/tt301/debweb2222/AffinityThemes/AffinityButton.jpg" /></a>

Also, is the button provided as bbcode ? If so it should be automatically converted to HTML.

I didn't do it your way sorry all I did was copy and past and it is working now but I have been doing that coping and pasting all day so many different ways..still don't know what I did different..

Thank you for your help Ange  Smile

I guess we can close this..also see other posts of mine and if you can you can close all of them as well..once I get these button working then everything is fine...

Thank you again Ange for your help..

Opps sorry I do have one more question what is that Legend and how do you change things on that..
