Solved How to make links from buttons to site

Post by Broomhilda on November 1st 2015, 6:07 am

Well I guess this is where I need to go and have help on making a link to a button and then to my site to other sites..I don't know how else to explain it..

@Ellianna17 if you can explain on step by step on what all I need to do to get the button you made to work and if you don't mind explaining to me how you made the button I would really appreciate it

I know nothing about coding how to make it or how it even works

Thank you for your help in advance..

Hi there,

You simply make the button into a link via HTML coding.

Code:
<a href="REDIRECTED LINK GOES HERE"> <img src="IMAGE URL GOES HERE" /></a>

Well I'm not sure where to put it..and what did you use for the picture did you just copy and paste it from the one that Ellianna17 made??

"ACP>Modules>Forum Widgets Management then click the modify button of the widget you want to add the coding (commonly the widget used to affiliate is 'Affiliate' found in the Personal Widgets). Paste it there, then hit save." but not sure this is where I even want to put it..I don't know getting confused

No, you right click the image and click 'Copy image URL' and paste that in where I said to paste the URL in the code.

Hello

Go to ACP>Modules>Forum Widgets Management
Scroll down and find 'Affiliates'.
Click Edit then you will be transmitted to a new page. Copy this code then paste this into the text box:
Code:
<a href="broomhildassims2.my-freeforum.com/"><img src="http://i68.tinypic.com/2mhhm3s.jpg" /></a>
Hit Submit. =)
If you want to change the image, change "http://i68.tinypic.com/2mhhm3s.jpg" to the image of your choice.

You can also paste the code to anywhere you want the affiliate image to be. Wink

Hope this helps! =)

I would say it would be the 'Affiliates' widget, since that's where affiliate buttons are located in your forum. =)

Sorry I didn't see the edited version of your post... Crying or Very sad

I noticed you uploaded the image with TP. You don't need to upload it again, I used TP to upload photos as well. It's already in TP link. =) Try changing it back to the link I gave you. <3
