UPB09 Follow Up

I hope you all had a wonderful time at the party. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you obviously didn't attend 5 Minutes for Moms' Ultimate Blog Party 09.) This note will be on-going as I finish reviewing the comments.

1. How did put numbers on your comments?
I found some instructions on the web, but I found someone who speaks our language (a mom!) Check out this post on The Mom Nerd. She even includes pictures! :) Note: You can only see the numbers on the page for the post (i.e. perma link). I didn't realize I had comment numbers until people started asking!

2. How do you make a scrolling button list?
(Okay...I'm going to have to come back and figure out how to post the html so that you can paste it. Check back. Gotta get to work.)

I got this advice from Erin on a message board, but here is her blog: Mrs. Cox's Slice o' Heaven

In a new HTML widget on your sidebar start with:



That should do it. You can adjust the speed where it says scrollamount="#" the higher the number the quicker it scrolls. And of course adjust your width and height to whatever you need for your sidebar. To be continued......

Well, this was my first year and I didn't really get to go around because of so much going on in my life last week. I'm enjoying reading many of the blogs this week though. Hopefully, next year I'll be more ready for it!

Thanks for the linky love! If those scrolly things didn't drive me bonkers it would be fun to try out too. Very cute blog by the way!

I would like to know how to do this, but dont see the code here that you are talking about. I see the actuall scroll.

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Hey! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my party post. That's so awesome that you dyed your hair red for an Anne of GG project. I LOVE Anne (I even lived in PEI when I was little). Anyone else who loves Anne must be cool :)
