Well, I was messing around with the new buttons and as a result, I had to replace the big one. So if you chose to incorporate the bigger button into your website earlier today, you’ll have to grab a new URL for it:

Blog Out Loud - July 7, 2010

Sorry about that. Serves me right!

    Any chance you want to post some quick instructions on how WordPress users add this button to their blog? I had a quick look, but it wasn’t obvious to me. Sad, I know. Not sure if it’s laziness or stupidity at fault here…

      Sure…here’s the basics:

      Go to your dashboard.

      On the left hand side, there’s a column with menu options. Go way down the bottom and under “Appearance” you’ll see “Widgets.”

      Widgets are little things you can add to your sidebar, like a calendar or twitter feed or whatnot.

      In this case you want to add a widget that is just text. So find the one called “Text” and just drag-and-drop it into your Sidebar, which is on the right hand side of the window. If you have other widgets there already, you can drop your new text box in wherever you want it to appear in the order, it doesn’t have to go at the bottom of the list.

      Now edit your new next box – it should be open automatically. Cut and paste in the link/image text from this blog post. Then click to close, and you’re done. You should be able to reload your blog’s home page and see the new box in your sidebar.

      I personally like my sidebar stuff to be centered. So you can add a DIV tag before and after the link/image text from this post to center the button, like this:

      <div align=center>
      {a tag and img tag from post}

      Good luck!
