How To Re-Size Buttons To Fit In Your Sidebar

Button Heart - find it here

 Not real buttons! You know...on your blog.

It's fun to grab buttons off of the blogs you love to read isn't it? Sometimes they come in odd sizes though.

Are some of the buttons not showing up properly and cut off after you paste them in your sidebar? ... Do they seem too big for the sidebar space? ... You can resize them to fit! Here is a little trick:

All you have to do is add a tiny bit of code after the button code ends:
width="180" height="180"

You can of course, change the 180 to whatever size you need, such as 150 or 125 etc. Basically whatever the size is of your sidebar. (To find your sidebar size you will need to go to your Design Page, Template Designer, and Adjust Widths). If you don't have any idea what a button is or what code is, you might want to read THIS first.

So the code for your button should look somewhat like this when you're done (the bright blue is the new code):

Make sure the width and height are inside the code closers: /></a>

Good luck! Let us know how it works for you.
