Just to the side, under my top posting user's thing... i have no clue how to code, my head admin did all the coding, but she quit ...

And all I have is the code for the button itself. Don't know anything else.

Code:
<a href="http://bleachplatinumhearts.motionforum.net"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif"border="0" alt="Bleach Platinum Hearts"></a>


I know... I'm hopeless. Lol

Ooh okie that's a widget. I can help you code it, but I'm currently on a phone so it'd have to wait until tomorrow ><
If you wanna give it a try yourself, just do the following:

  1. ACP > Modules > Portal & Widgets > Forum Widget Management > Create Widget
  2. Then fill out the fields with the following information:
    - Widget Name: Affiliates
    - Use a Table Type?Yes (I believe this styles your widget in the same way as your Log in and Staff Online widgets)
    - Widget Title: Affiliates
  3. Then just paste in the button code that you already have (once per affiliate), and replace the URL and Image link accordingly c:

After that, just go back to the Widget Management page, and your new Widget will be under Personal Widgets

You'd use the same code you used for the other affiliates; the one you posted above. Just create your button in GIMP, save it as a png file, and then upload it to imgur or tinypic and get the image URL. Once you have that just replace the forum link and the image link in your original button code with the new links c:
