A Scrolling {clickable} Slideshow!

Okay I have a awesome tutorial for you today! This was suggested to me by one of my followers on BlogFrog!
I am going to show you how to make a scrolling {clickable} slideshow!


Why would you need a scrolling clickable slideshow?
Well… you can put all your blog buttons in a slideshow so they don’t take up so much space in your side bar! 
Great idea huh?
 
This is a fairly simple thing to do. But, if you have questions or need help just ask! :)
First you need to do some blog stocking and find the blog buttons you want to display in your slideshow.
{I would love if mine was included!}


It is probably easiest if you open a word document or notepad and copy and paste all the blog button codes you want to use. But, make sure you leave space in between them.


Now go to your blogger layout>add a gadget>add html


Paste this code into that box:

 

Okay now you just need to copy one of the button codes and paste it on the next line in your html box.
Do the exact same thing with all the button codes. Paste them right after each other.


I would probably add 2 or 3 buttons then save and look at my blog to make sure it is working.
No need to waste time putting all the buttons on if something is wrong :)


 The #ffffff part of the html code is called a hex code. It tells blogger what color to make the background of your slideshow.


#ffffff is white.


If you want to change the color go HERE pick a color and replace the hex code with the new one.


One other note….
Most blog buttons are already made to be centered. However if they are not the blog button will not be in the center of the slideshow.


But guess what???


There is an easy way to fix that! All you need to do is put

at the begining of the blog button code and



at the end!


Happy slideshow making!

    Thanks for helping me out on this. I believe I followed the directions above. I copied and pasted 3 blog button codes to the html window. I previewed like you suggested. The buttons are there, but are not scrolling. What did I wrong? Please help! Thanks.
