Hi BRC

Trying adding a center tag around your image. So it would look something like this:
<center><a href="YOUR LINK URL.com"><img src="http://your image link path"/image.jpg"></a></center>

Ok i hate to bug you again but i did another banner exchange with entertainment earth and when i load the banner -no image appears (tho i got the centering down. lol) so i went back to their site to see what i did wrong and realized i had no idea what they were asking me to do. so i copied what they said AND the HTML code for you to see if you could tell my clueless butt what i need to do. LOL

heres the copy:

The HTML code to display the graphic on your website is shown below. Copy the code and place it on your website. Be sure that the path to the graphic on your website is set correctly by adjusting the SRC property in the IMG html tag. Note that your affiliate ID has ALREADY been embedded in the code.

code:

Hello BRC,
Littleus is currently offline so I can help!

I am thinking that they have given you a chunk of which includes the location of the image on their side as well as creates the link.

Try this first, drag an HTML Widget onto your page (it is on the Content Sidebar and looks like blue circle) and paste the code into it. If the above scenario is correct, than it should show up properly.

If not, please feel free to paste the code here and we can take a look at it. When you paste code put <!-- at the beginning and --> at the end. This will make the code show up on the page.

Let us know how this goes for you!

Hello BRC - you need to download the banner image they give you and then upload to your computer. Then change the img src tag to img src="resources/THE NAME OF THE BANNER IMAGE.jpg"

Hello BRC

Have you uploaded the image to your file manager? If so, what is the image file name? If it's a .gif then, you need to make sure that in the code, you have .gif as your file extension, not .jpg.

Please let us know how this works out for you and if you need further help, we'll be glad to offer our assistance. =)
