What if I don't like meebo as a chat? I already have my own chatroom on mIRC. I would like to put a button on my site that says chat and when someone clicks on it I will have detailed instructions on how to download mIRC and get into my chat. They will only have to do this once.

If you want to make your own buttons for a custom navigation or another purpose, you will need to create the button, and then link it to the page, website, file or email address you would like it to go to just as you would create an image link.

There are quite a few banner/button making programs on the Internet if you would like to create your own. I have used a few programs which worked quite nicely if you would like to give them a try: Banner Fans and Banner Maker Pro, (this is not a free program, but they do have a free trial available).

You can then link the button like this:

1. Add the button to your page, using the image widget.
2. Click on 'Properties' on the right-hand sidebar.
3. Click on 'Choose a Link' and make your selection; you will be able to choose to link to a page in your site, an outside URL, an email address or a file.
4. Click on 'Apply'

To check that your link is working, preview your page and then click on the link.

Please let me know if you have further questions regarding this.
