Something new

I am copying a friends idea with photos.  Not much luck, I am trying to get the photos down on the side bar.  I have just spent way to long trying, bear with me, I will get there!

Did you know that………..

that tall chef’s hat is called a toque…….

This post originally had only 2 photos in the slideshow and it was very, very sad!

    You need to copy the html code. When you edit this post, go to the HTML tab (instead of Visual). Copy the block of code for the slideshow – ie. everything between the ‘div tags’. (ie. between and ) Then go to your dashboard, set up a text widget (or open one you already have) and paste the block of code into it. That’s all I had to do for it to work.

    Only thing that might present a problem is if the size is too wide for your sidebar. Did you choose the smallest size of the slideshow? Even then, with your blog theme, it might be too big. You could probably reduce the size in the code – if you need me to, copy the code into an email (make it a plain text email – or do it in notepad and attach it as a .txt file to the email.) I might be able to figure out the size you need, but still maintaining the aspect ratio.

    You need more photos! LOL
    Btw, you can add more when you edit it – but don’t freak if they don’t automatically change in your blog. Took a few hours for me one day (but another day it was instant). Think it’s just a ‘cache’ thing.

      Great instructions I think, but for only 2 photos I may wait! I actually just took a photo of the house for my ridiculous blog, that will take me a while to upload.

      And to say I need more photos, FOR GOODNESS SAKE, remember quality is better than quantity. But yes 2 photos is VERY SAD!

    What about all your Bali photos! Reduce them in size and bung ’em up there!

    I cannot add the BLOODY RIDICULOUS photo!

    you’ve ended up with a separate slideshow. when you got your sign up email from RockYou you should have got some link to your profile at RockYou. From there you should be able to see your slideshow/s and an edit button. When you edit the first one, you can add the photo to that. Then just Save, and that’s it. It will automatically update on your blog – eventually! Just maybe not immediately. (Trust me, I went through all this stuff, reposting to my my blog, and it turned out I didn’t need to!)
