good Morning, anyone online that can give step by step instructions on adding mtc to my blog. I use blogger and dont even know where to start. I looked at conicuts instructions but she starts somewhere in the middle assuming we know where to start.
Please i am on now if someone can help me.
Thanks

    Ana, I am not an affiliate, so let me first ask this. Did they give you a url code for the link for MTC sales?? If so, let me know, and I may be able to help, since I have blogger also.
  • anaana Member Posts: 769
    yes they gave me two codes.

    OK, let's try this then. Go to your blogger dashboard, and sign in. Then when it comes up, there is a box with your profile info and it has several options. CLick on design. After you do that, a template of your page should pop up. Depending on your page style, there should be a blue link that says "Add gadget". Mine is on the top of the right sidebar.

    Once you click on that, a box pops up to give you options of what to add. Click on "HTML/Javascript" and another box should pop up for you to enter the code. Make sure you put the entire code in. After you do that, click save and it shoudl be added to your sidebar! Let me know if this works.

    Well??? LOL. OK, I actually am going to be unavailable for a couple of hours, so I'm hoping that worked. If not, I hope someone else can help. Good luck!
  • anaana Member Posts: 769

    okay... you mean you can't get the url? Right?
  • KimATCKimATC Member Posts: 785
    OK, Ana, let me try this. From what you seem to be saying, you have a code for the picture and a code for the link, right?? Is there any way to save your picture as a jpeg file - meaning can you right click on the picture, then hit save as, and have a jpeg copy of it on your computer? If so, then go through the dashboard>design>add a gadget steps again, only this time, click on "Picture" instead of HTML/Javascript. You will see a box that looks like the one below. Where it says "from your computer", use that browse button to find the picture you just saved, and put it there. Then, where it says "link" in the box above that, put the url code in and see what happens.

    Ok, I downloaded the pic and was able to change to a jpeg, but i dont have any kind of url. Dont know where to get it from.

    Kim
    I dont see anything that says Configure Image. And i dont have a url addy to use even if I could find it.

    I'm sorry I feel like an idiot and spent so much time yesterday trying to figure it out. I finally gave up and started playing with the new update lol

    If you can help i would appreciate it.

    At this point, I am kind of stuck, because I am not an affiliate, and have no idea what they give you in order to do all of this, so I kind of guessed in order to help. Apparently, my guessing was off, lol, sorry! Hopefully someone who has actually gone through the process will be able to walk you through it, but it may take a coouple of days, with everyone testing the beta 3.0. So be patient, help will come!
  • anaana Member Posts: 769
    NO you were very helpful, it's how i was able to get the initial information and it is working fine. My problem is now only with the button. But thanks again for helping.

    Ana you might want to edit your thread to state you need help with button image for MTC... might bring out some techies - as well as change to HELP thread ( via edit) or even (Affiliates) as the topic thread to get thos e people to look and help you resolve... just a thought that might help!
  • VinylandVectorsVinylandVectors Member Posts: 4,344
    ana.. are you using the MTC button? If so... you need to "connect" your button with your affiliate link.

    First: upload your MTC button to a free photohosting website, I use google's picasa. Make sure when you upload it that it is marked as "public" or "anybody can see"

    Second: Find your affiliate link and then fill in the following:



    Third: once you fill in the above, you will have to right click once, "copy" and then past it in your google gadget as an HTML.

    I hope that helps.

    you forgot to close the img tag -- some browsers may have an issue with that



    or (for XHTML)
    I don't often test my code... But when I do, I do it in production.
