This is not really a big deal, but has anyone noticed that when you click on a website in the blog roll, it opens with a big ad over the header?

I checked on that, Crystal, and came across this message:

You are seeing this ad because one of the websites that you visited uses the BlogRolling.com service to provide links to other websites to its visitors. When you follow one of these links, you see an advertisement on the top of the page, like the one that lead you to this page. If you don't wish to see these advertisements, simply click the convenient "Remove this ad" link on the right hand side of the advertisement.

I tried the convenient "Remove this ad" link and it appears to have worked, on that one ad, that one time. Next time, the ad was back. IMHO, it's a small enough price to pay for the otherwise "free" scroll program.

Bayou Bill :cool:

Added, but it's not very clear. Any tips? Actually I'm not sure if it's better that way, viewers might scroll to see what's there.

I've managed to change the backound colour to show all names clearly and added this thread to my signiture. Thanks

I'm in.

My personal/writing blog is Adventures in Navy Wifing (http://navywifeadventures.blogspot.com/)

My other blog is in my signature - that one is only about writing and isn't updated quite as often. I put the blogroll on my personal blog, but would be happy to put it on both if that's kosher.

In a world of my own
Normal HTML link doesn't work for me. When I paste it, it's fine, but once I save it, the code is cut off.

Am I doing anything wrong?

I am on blogger.

Me too. I added the blogroll, although there seems to be a picture missing at the top (?)

Hey guys, will add your blogs soon, but blogrolling.com is having some problems at the moment.

Lostwander, not sure what is going on with yours. Will play around with it tomorrow if I remember.

I'd like to join but I'm html-illiterate and can't figure out what I'm supposed to do.

My blog is with wordpress. How do I add the blogroll?

bsolah,

tried again with HTML code today, but doesn't work. :(

Damn, um I haven't used blogger in a bit so not quite sure. Have you tried adding the scrolling one?

Though maybe the start of Weebil's intructions earlier might help you:
For Blogspot (blogger) Damiena was kind enough to send this info to me:


Under Layout, Select Add a Gadget and paste this code in the Content Box
