Confused by simple html, help please!

14 replies
Hi guys,

Im trying to put a call to action button on my landing page. What im doing is designing it for free, saving it and opening up dreamweaver, copying the button onto dreamweaver and then copying the html onto my page.

However it doesnt seem to be working.When i view the landing page i can see the button but when i get family members to view it, its just a blank box. This is the html code which im copying over directly to my landing page.

<body>
<a href="kvors. com src="../Desktop/Junk/button3.png" width="270" height="40" border="0" /></a>
</body>
</html>

And heres my landing page The Annual NetFlix Competition! - Home

Can anyone see what im doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

Shaun

    Looks like the image reference is pointing to your computer, not an image stored online. At least in your code example... the page seems to be working.

      Can you see the blue button at the bottom? Would somewhere like imageshack be ok for hosting an image online?

      Cheers

    Hi,

    I think you are missing the http://. It should be structured more like this:

    <a href="http://www.mywebsite.com"><img src="http://www.mywebsite.com/image-files/myfile.jpg"

    Everything else seems OK

    Best-

      Hi Gregg,

      It does have the http:// but because of the way the warrior forum works, when i post a link it makes the http invisible

    Yes, you will need to host it online. You can't call an image from your computer without a lot of backbreaking work.

    Just upload the image to your host and use the following code.

    <a href="wheretogowhenimageisclicked"><img src="location of image"></a>

    rickkettner is right, what you need to do is upload the image to your host via FTP and then reference the image in the "href" tag,

    e.g. - href="http://www.mywebsite.com/images/yourimagename.jpg"

    Another minor note, you may want to think about masking your affiliate link as well, it is not mandatory, but just a suggestion.

    All the best.

        I went to your site and clicked on the button, the site didn't load. I tried it several times but blank page is all I got.

        Thought I would let you know.

        Mm

    Yea, you are probably right. It looks like you have several good suggestions that should get you on the right path. It took me a bit to get it to work too. I did a lot of copy and paste to get it right and then just input my sight info. Hope it works out.
