YesBut a slideshow

I have replaced the blog’s title header with a slide show. What do you think about it?

Is the slide show a distraction? All views welcome.

I’m quite pleased that I managed, unaided, to install a slide show. If you want to inbed a slideshow into your blog its relatively easy.

If you are not a member of Photobucket, click here to register with Photobucket.

Membership is free.

Once you are a member you can upload your photos.

With your photos uploaded to your album you can now create a slide show. Click on the “create slideshow tab

Click on the + button of the photos you want in your slideshow.

If required you can drag the photos to alter the order they appear and add captions to each photo.

After you are satisfied with your slide show, save it.

Click on the HTML Tag this will copy the HTML code for your slide show.

Now to get the slideshow placed in your blog.

Open another Window and log into your blogger account and click on “Layout”

Click on “Add a Page Element” and select Add To Blog “HTML/JavaScript”

Paste in your slideshow HTML code.

Save the changes.You can then move the element to the position you want it to appear on your web page.

Click on preview and if you are not satisfied move the element to a new location or by clicking on “Clear Edits” to remove it completely.

If you look at the html code you will see:

You can alter the dimension of the slideshow by editing the width and height figures.

Hope the above has been of some use.

And finally if you have the “time” click here to see someone who has more than HTML codes to sort out.
