    Here is where I stand:

    We are working on our church's website. We are building it through ForMinistry.com (which is free).

    What I am trying to do is to make a 'links' page with graphics as links. What I need to know is, HOW??? All I end up with is a text link with no graphic. What should I be doing that I'm not?

    Specifically, I am trying to copy a logo link from The Audio-Bible Website . I am also going to do some from Crosswalk, E-sword, Southern Baptist Convention, our local association, you name it. But I really want it to look nice, so I want to use the graphic links.

    Please, help! And make it fairly simple...I can run with the best of them on the regular computer stuff, but know nothing about HTML and such.

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    You can either learn HTML coding (been a long time for me) or use some software, such as Netscape Composer, which is free.

    You should download them onto your site (which protects you in case the host site changes) and then link to them.

    The best way to do this is to save the logos to the web server and use the following HTML code:

    &lt;a href="http://www.website.com/"&gt;&lt;img src="image.gif" border="0"&gt;&lt;/a&gt;

    I have created a "Do it Yourself" section of my Web site for those who want to learn:

    On my web builder I have an option of adding a picture and making that picture a link. I don't know what program that free site uses but I have sitebuilder.

    Good luck

    Ok I went to the free program you are using and I signed up and got a site going. You do have an option to add a picture and make it a link. You just have to know the code and I am no good at that. Sorry.... :confused:

    LauraB,

    Yeah, ForMinistry.com is a build-on-their-site deal, for the most part. If you know HTML, you can do some coding on your own. But they won't let you import web pages (that I know of yet).

    Oh, and I figured out how to do the link. What you wrote got me to looking, and I stumbled on to it. Thanks.

    And thanks to the rest of you, too. It is great to know that there are some out there willing to help a website-impaired brother!

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    NetPublicist,

    I checked out your site. You have a link to HTMLGoodies.com , and I have seen another link somewhere in this forum. I just wanted to say thanks.

    HTMLGoodies is just what I needed...tutorials on HTML, written in a way that lets you actually get your hand in on it.

    Thanks.

    In Christ,
    Trotter

    Go to the site you want to emulate...

    In IE click [VIEW]-[SOURCE] look for the code they used...

    Hope this helps...

    &lt;a href=..... This starts a link

    "http://www.audio-bible.com"&gt;..... This is the actual link address

    &lt;img src="http://www.audio-bible.com/images/banners/audiobible.gif" border="0" alt="Audio Bible logo 3D"&gt;

    The above is the 'User Notification' (for want of a better word:)) it can be text or graphic...

    &lt;/a&gt;..... This closes the link

    All together it looks like this:
