HTML Requests

Long time no post! This is a post where you guys can request a snippet of HTML code to do a certain thing, sort of like question and answer. All you have to do is leave a comment, and we'll get back to you in a comment as soon as possible.

Also, to remind you, the HTML newsletter is still active. Not many people are signing up. Remember, you can get a free Gmail account if you sign up! First 5 people get Gmail accounts, and out of the next 5 people, 1 gets a Gmail account. (At least.)

So, let the requests begin!



  • Just sayin' hi from! I'll add a link for you, will be very useful for HTML questions.

    By Blogger rrd, at February 03, 2005  

  • Thanks a lot!

    By Blogger GL, at February 20, 2005  

  • I have a question........
    how do you still use and make a blank template and make your own template. I notice that on this site you didt tell about........
    a box that pops up that lets you change the background color.

    or any other wacky crazy HTML. LOL I'm 16 and only use HTML for my blog at
    God Bless†

  • You cannot make a blank template with blogger, but you can edit an existing one. Just go to the Settings for your blog, then edit the HTML in the template. However, some of it is stylesheets, which are very complicated and not covered here.

  • To ALL at Html Tips and Tricks, I would like to give a Big Thank YOU. I'm an novice building my own sites and my husband has two established companies and I thought we could do it without a hassle. Three months later the sites have been uploaded and deleted everday. We're getting there with a lot of help from sites like yours. I have all the professional software like Dreamweaver, Flash MX but still getting used to it and there are deadlines to meet. Well, to the point, your scrolling marquee did the trick when the Flash banner was not working but more important, many more people will be able to view it without hassles. Thank You for making my day and I will put your link to my blog (when I find time to update it).

  • I would like to make my visitors post their comments after having read an article on my homepage, how do I do that?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at May 10, 2005  

  • Would this be in blogger? If so, just enable comments for the post.

    By Blogger GL, at May 11, 2005  

  • Hey! I'd just like to say that your site is GREAT! But, as for my question...

    I don't know if you're familiar with at all, but its just kind of like a little personal homepage. I'm having ALOT of trouble with HTML on this site. Is there a code that will cover the original tables that are already in the document, and show a diffrent table style? Or, something that will give you a blank template, perhaps...

    ...If this makes any sence =) If you don't know what I'm talking about, still, thank you for confusing yourself =P

    God speed.

  • hi, i was wondering if you could make a tutorial/guide on how to put links in a drop-down box [like this one] such that when you click on "options", it directs you to another page or site.
    thanks ;)

  • This page can give you the tip:

    By Blogger nilsmo, at May 30, 2005  

  • Anonymous:
    Did you put all the code between <head> and </head>:?
    If possible, try deleting the stylesheets (marked by <style> and </style>); they are located after the <head>...
    If you would like help with tables already in the document, show me the web page and also show me the code for the tables.

    By Blogger nilsmo, at May 30, 2005  

  • thanks for that, it helps ;)

    By Blogger pierce; dissolve, at May 30, 2005  

  • Good!

  • Hi, I'm not sure if you're still reading these but here goes!
    (very useful site by the way)
    I'm setting up a blog, and would really like to know how to display short versions of my posts, with a clickable 'expand' link at the bottom - which when you click it will display the rest of the article.
    any chance you can help me with that? any assistance is extremely appreciated!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at June 23, 2005  

  • The only way to make posts expand or collapse is to manually write them into the Template; it is impossible to make post you have written using Create New Post have an expand button automatically. Sorry. If you want to know how to manually make expand buttons in the template - which involves copying and pasting your posts and your post titles and more to the template and changing each and every one of them - post another comment.

    By Blogger cano..., at July 29, 2005  

  • If you look at the navigation on this site,, you'll see that when you click on one of the links on the left side the whole thing lights up not just the words. How do you do that?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at August 07, 2005  

  • Hi, excellent education here, but one question. I want to give an alert window if someone clicks on a link. Can you help me out??

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at August 23, 2005  

  • <A href='JavaScript:alert("This is an alert!")'>Click here</A>

    Just change the "This is an alert" and "Click here" text, erwin slemmer. Also, if you want to use a button instead of a link, use this tip. I might make a tip on this later.

    By Blogger nilsmo, at August 30, 2005  

  • Is there a way to make this open in a new page?

  • how do I make 20 picture scroll like a marquee does?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at September 20, 2005  

  • What do you mean, Patrick? You can put images inside a marquee tag, and if you want to combine twenty images, then you can either make a new image with all the images inside of it or you can put all images in the marquee tag.

  • Great site!

    How do I make an image appear on the browser tab next to the page description like your orange B?

    By Blogger Unknown, at September 09, 2008  

  • You need to find a .ico file somewhere on the web. (You can create an .ico file using this tool, but then you must upload it to some location on the web.) Make sure it is called favicon.ico.

    So now you should have a URL for a .ico file (for example )

    Find the place in your code where it says


    Right after that line, place the following code

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="URL of the icon" />

    For example, if right after <head> you add the following:

    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="" />

    Your web site should have a google icon.

  • How do I make a horizontal scrolling banner, or banners rather for my site? I have a script that goes from right to left with 125X125 banners. Can I adjust that to fit my needs?

    By Blogger Robin, at October 21, 2008  

  • Hi again. Sorry i posted somewhere my request. Can you create post about adding gadget along with the banner? I was able to insert add gadget above and below the header but i want it to be along with the header. I had read in other article that you need to split it up but my html is a lot more complicated since i got it from and not the classic one. I'll leave my blog url. Tnx.

  • Great tips!! Thank you for your expertise. I have two questions:
    1. How do I put an image that will rotate to other images, on my website, after a certain time?

    2. How do I made the cursor show bubbles and they work through my website. As they move their cursor a line of bubbles or something follows the cursor?

    I need an html script that will skip ads at the bottom of the screen that are re-directing visitors to my website to another site. I have contacted the web host but they won't help. I need something that will skip the ads and keep my webpage on the open window.
