rotating quotes

Kate asked, awhile ago, about the quotes at the top of the page.

First, figure out where you want it. If you want it under your header, you will need to create another space at the top of the page. I used the directions here for making my messageboard.

Then I put in this code:



Yes it is too tiny to see, but after you cut and paste it into your message board it will get bigger.

I left a few quotes in to get you started. You can add more by editing the "quotes = new Array(5);" bit and replicating the quotes bit. Note that there is indeed a quote #0, so your last quote entry should be 1 less than the number in the "quotes = new Array(5);"

When I find new quotes that I like, I just pop them in. I have several hundred now.

I have been looking for rotating quotes to add to my sidebar -- specifically editable -- but for some odd reason it's not working on my blogspot:-( I copied and pasted directly from your code, to test it, but still nothing. Any ideas???

Hi Myranda,

Yes, when you copy and paste some annoying little code (/br in pointy brackets) is added. Get rid of it. Let me know if that helps.
