Ever wondered how people make a scrolling sidebar widget? They are a great way to de-clutter and organize your layout while still promoting your blog friends. It’s actually pretty simply to make- here’s How:
1. Decide on which buttons you want to use.
2. Copy the HTML from the button codes into an easy to find list. Be sure to place spaces between the button codes so you can easily tell them apart.
4. Now click download and copy the text file into your page element.
5. Now place all your button codes in the place where it says *PUT YOUR BUTTON CODES HERE* If you would like to add more buttons, just add the button code to the list. Now save it.
There are a few things you can customize in the code- if you need:
direction=”up” can be changed to control which way the buttons move – “up”, “down”, “right”, or “left”
height=”350″ controls how tall the area that the buttons scroll through is
width=”175″ controls the width of the box – “number” (this cannot be wider than the column it is in- you will see if it’s too wide- if so reduce the number and that should take care of it)
scrollamount=”4″ this controls the speed at which the buttons move, the higher the number the faster they go.
