How Did She Do That?

You may have noticed that a few weeks ago, I managed to neatly shrink the buttons on my sidebar that show places I’ve been featured and places I party each week.  I was thrilled with the result because once you get a certain number of those, they just take up so much space and don’t look nice and tidy at all.  I wish I could take credit for figuring out how to do it, but alas, I googled something along the lines of “How to shrink blog buttons” and I found a nifty little tutorial that stepped me right through.  I thought I’d share what I learned in case any of you are wanting to do the same thing!
Here’s all you have to do.  Each button has its own code.  For example, here’s mine.
One Artsy Mama
To shrink it, you just have to add this code: width=”40%”
Here’s where it goes:
width=”40%”/>
You just have to go into the code for each button you have listed and add that nifty little piece.  Be sure to pay attention to the rest of the code because if any of the buttons specify the height or width, {something like height=”150″}, you’ll have to delete that.  Also, to make them line up nicely, take out any and all
s except for one at the very beginning of your list and one at the very end.
Hope that helps!  If you’re trying to do it and have any questions, send them my way!

    What a great post. Sometimes these things are so hard to figure out, it’s nice when someone else figures it out for you. :)
