Hi piestalker

Please don't call yourself a dimwit! We are all in various stages of learning here! =)

If you'd like to create a mouseover button.. the first thing you'll have to do is create your buttons. There are a few button generators out there. One popular site for this is If you create your buttons with a button generator, they will usually give you the code to make the mouseover effect work. You will need to upload the button images into your file manager. Drag an HTML widget over and paste in the code. Be sure the image path is correct in your code. For in particular, to make your images link, you will need to add an a href tag before the img src tag.

e.g. <!--<a href=">&lt;YOUR MOUSEOVER CODE GOES IN HERE></a>--> (Please remove the <!-- & --> as these only prevent the code from being read on the forum)

If you're savvy with photoshop, then you can also make your own buttons. Then you can go to something like to create your mouseover buttons. For this particular code, you'll need to paste the "Head" code into one HTML box and the "Body" code into another HTML box.

Please let me know if you need further clarification.
